Great time to introduce someone to the sport.

Saturday July 2 and another on September 3.

I'm planning on getting some folks on the water that don't normally fish.

Were you able to make any new anglers over the weekend? Thanks to your post, I used last Saturday as an opportunity to take my dad out to fish on my boat for the first time. He hasn't had a fishing license since the Regan administration, and although he only landed two shakers, he had such a good time he was finally convinced to get a license so he can go out and do more fishing.

That's pretty sweet LONO!, not much better than getting your pops into fish.

But, yep my nephew and niece both caught their first shad on my boat on Saturday. Their mom and dad came out as well and helped put the rods out, so it was an awesome day. I think there is another free fishing day in September, looking forward to getting some more newbies on the fish but hopefully for salmon.
