Youth fishing Saturday in Laona

LAONA, Wis. – The Boundary Waters Musky Club, along with the Headwaters Chapter of Muskies Inc., will sponsor a fishing outing for kids ages 10 to 17 on Saturday, July 12.

Registration will be from 7 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. at the Silver Lake Pavilion on Silver Lake, Highway 32, Laona.

The event will run from 7:30 a.m. until noon. Any lake in the area may be fished. Lunch will be served and prizes given for the largest fish in all categories.

All participating kids will receive a gift. Participants will be matched up with guides. They will be fishing from boats and may fish for any species by any method.

“Last year’s event was a great success, we hope to accommodate more anglers this year,”?said Dan Lazzeroni, event chairman. “This is a great way to introduce kids to various types of fishing, and if they are interested, musky fishing.”

The number of kids that can participate may be limited by the availability of guides with boats. Any angler that is willing to take two or three kids fishing is encouraged to contact the organizers. Prospective guides should contact Dan at (715) 889-2938 or Nick Vento (414) 791-1189.
