Our newest featured blog,”Girl of 10,000 Lakes,” put together a list of kid-friendly fishing organizations that parents can add to their kids’ tackle boxes. We are looking forward to sharing her content in the future!
As I get our home ready for our first child, I can’t help but also think about how I want to equip his “tackle box.” I don’t mean just lures and kid-friendly fishing poles. I also want my son to have access to our lakes, natural resources, understand the value of fishing and how it relates to conservation — and have fun while doing it!
I put together a list of kid-friendly fishing organizations that parents can add to their kids’ tackle boxes. These are groups that want to pass on fishing to future generations, which is important for conservation as license sales dwindle in Minnesota. The dollars spent on fishing licenses directly impacts the work our conservation officers do and the state programs that help better the environment.
If you have suggestions on other fishing organizations, please add them in the comments below!
Fishing Friendzy is a company dedicated to introducing ethical angling and the value of the great outdoors to kids and parents. They’re teaching kids about fishing in a fun, positive and safe way through traveling fishing exhibits and Youth Fishing Leagues throughout North America. Their four day fishing league opens for registration on April 22nd with leagues available in Orangeville, Caledon, Midland, Bobcaygeon, Hamilton and Bruce County — which I believe are all in Ontario. It’s a friendly tournament for kids who want to learn how to fish, hear from experienced anglers, conservation staff and hopefully instill the value of protecting the natural environment through the rest of their lives. Learn more about registering your kids in Fishing Friendzy’s Youth Fishing League.

Jenny Anderson, known as 'The Girl of 10,000 Lakes' is a young mom, avid angler and outdoors enthusiast. Hailing from Minnesota, there are few places she'd rather be than canoeing in the Boundary Waters, ice fishing on Mille Lacs or enjoying lake life at the cabin. But her love for all things outdoors wasn’t something always instilled in her. It’s something she discovered later on in life and that’s why she encourages everyone to take more detours, step outside your comfort zone and try something new outdoors.
