Lake of the Woods, Ice Fishing! Students spent the night at Border View Lodge and fished in rental houses and slayed walleye and sauger. Many kids had their first ride in a bombardier and first trip to Lake of the Woods! Memories were made!
Here is a news clip of Spartan Angling on Jay Gould Lake.
A great day spearing with the Grand Rapids Darkhouse Angling Association! Kids saw the spearing set up process, observed pike, and harvested a few fish! Great day for future spearers!
The next generation of anglers will be just fine, if we just take them!
Chelsie Brown interviewed anglers about the program! Very cool!
A VERY generous donation from the Grand Rapids and Nashwauk Community Fund to Spartan Angling! The organization came to the school and presented the donation. Special thanks to the Peter and Gloria Burich Fund!
Lee Church graced us with his presence and showed some beautiful photography of fish from all over the world! He is also in the military, and we thank him for his sacrifice and service! Lee is an avid fly fisherman and showed some of his hand tied lures!
Spartan Angling greatly welcomes the boat manufacturer Alumacraft as a sponsor this year! The group very excited and looks forward to working with Alumacraft for many years to come! Thanks! Please see our website www.spartanangling.com for our mission, purpose, and accomplishments!
A huge thank you to the Grand Rapids Chapter for a monetary donation to Spartan Angling! We also have partnered with the organization and will be taking the whole class spearing in December and again in January! Most kids have never been spearing, so this is an incredible opportunity for them! Thanks Rick!
Dave from Itasca Waters gave a lesson on watersheds and shoreline management to Spartan Angling! He also gave kids a guide for lake stewardship.
A huge thank you to Women’s Anglers of Minnesota for a huge donation of open water and ice fishing rod/reel combos. The organization used members around the state to deliver the rods to the high school! Such generosity!
