What is the Winter Shore casting clinic?
Due to unpredictable weather, the clinic will be conducted indoors. We will cover everything you will need to know to get started on your next adventure. All participants are encouraged to bring their fishing gear. If weather permits, anglers can put their new skills to the test after the clinic. The lake will only be a snowball throw away.
What will you learn?
Our main angling approach at this clinic fill focus on the use of spinning rods, reels, and terminal tackle. We will teach you the various set-ups that work for us, demonstrate how to line them and what terminal tackle you will need. We will cover several different types of lures and when and how to fish them, the types of live bait, and how best to fish in a variety of conditions.
We cover cold weather gear basics, added fishing accessories, and some safety tips to keep your day dry and productive.
We also teach you how to best select likely productive fishing locations. We cover what key things to look for and what areas to stay away from. Minnesota has approximately 150 miles of Lake Superior shoreline for anglers. Much, but not all is accessible to anglers, we will hone in on the good stuff.
Safety first if planning to fish
What will you need to bring?
We recommend the following if you plan to fish after the clinic. First and foremost, bring a positive attitude. You will also need to supply yourself with your own fishing equipment (rod, reel, line, lures, bait, etc.). We will provide more details on gear to those that register. We also strongly suggest ice cleats, a net, polarized glasses and a camera. For those in need of jigs, we hope to have some custom "MS frenchy bugs" available on our website soon.
*clinic address will be provided upon registration
Who can attend?
Our program instructors, Arron and Lisa, strongly encourage women and Parent/child pairs to participate in the clinic. Children must register and attend with an adult to participate. What you will learn here can easily be applied to comfortable spring, summer and fall fishing as well.
