2020 Minnesota Military Youth Ice Fishing Clinic

I find it amazing that even with the snow we still had a good turnout for the 2020 Military Ice Fishing Clinic. Snow started overnight and continued until about 11:30 am, making the roads difficult to be on. Travel was not advised but we are Minnesotans and a little snow doesn't hold us back.

Even with bad road conditions we still saw 35 – 40 kids show up and they were all excited to ice fish. Unfortunately, not many fish were caught. Regardless, all the kids had a great time and they all went home with knowledge and memories, as well as some goodies.

The support was there with a dozen or so TC Walleyes' members, along with club friend and HOF inductee Steve Pennaz, who was there to help out as well as other volunteers. I personally want to thank our members and friends for the support for this great even.

Special thanks to the following donors and volunteers who went over and above with their support of the event.

Brian Bro Brosdahl, Minnesota National Guard Child and Youth Program, Northland Tackle, Eskimo Ice Fishing Gear, Clam Outdoors,
Mike Zickermann - Fleet Manager at Morrie’s Brooklyn Park, Urban Ice Angers, Dive Guys Big Fish & Fry, Minnesota DNR, Vexilar, Cabelas, Vados Bait & Tackle, Tanner Wiese and his girlfriend Shelby, my wife Gloria and our friend Julie Seibert, Keith Seibert for the use of his wheel house.

Each year we receive more support and interest from not only our own TC Walleyes' members but from those in the industry. I am already looking forward to next year, it is always a great time. Thanks everyone.

Lucas on his Big Catch
So I told everyone to be quiet and then the fish will come in. And then I saw a big Northern Pike through the Ice hole and he swam away.
So then I told everyone be very very quiet and then Bam! He ate my minnow and he started yanking my rod and I had to reel really hard. Then he came through the hole and we all cheered we got the Northern!
Then I yelled "I caught the Northern!"
Thank You Eskimo for providing awesome shelter from the Snow Storm!
Great job John and Gloria Jordan and the TWCU volunteers; Steve Pennaz, Wes Noyes, Brenda and Bob Dittman, Brad Dybdahl, George Zarns, Chris Grubb, Pat Bergstrom, Doug Stelten, Kail LaVigne, Rusty Nelson, Lisa Wood, Doc Wood, Dale Meinders, Ben Roach, Joe Roach
