On June 20, 2015, volunteers from the Milwaukee Chapter of Muskies Inc. worked with volunteers from Big Brothers and Big Sisters to take about 20 kids out fishing on Pewaukee Lake.Mother Nature made sure that the weather was excellent and that rain showers headed north of the lake.
The guides from Muskies Inc. got the kids into pontoon boats and went out in search of bluegills and other panfish. And in the end, they found just as many smiles on the faces of the kids as they did fish on the ends of lines.
The Littles and Bigs were treated to a fantastic morning of fishing and a nice lunch afterwards. As a surprise, every Little received a fishing rod which was donated by the Milwaukee Chapter of Muskies Inc. There was also a grand prize raffle in which a youngster won a new bike!
In the end, I’m not sure who enjoyed the outing more, the Littles, the Bigs, or the volunteers who helped run the event from Big Brothers/Big Sisters and the Milwaukee Muskies Inc. fishing club.
