Each of these Minnesota youth fishing trips and events are different from all the rest. Some require pre-registration and have a cap on the number of participants, while others are open to anyone who wants to fish. some provide rod-and-reel combos or tackle that kids can take home, some provide loaner rods and reels, and other require that kids bring all their own tackle.

Most of our fishing adventures include both a parent and kid fishing trips. They can be a one day event, a weekend event, or week long event. Some include travel accommodations and some do not.
