Well, not when you factor in the cost of the boat, trailer, motor, fishing pole, reel, tackle, bait, snacks….
The DNR’s MinnAqua program, which teaches kids and adults about lake and stream ecology through angling, is planning several events corresponding to Take-A-Kid Fishing Weekend.

Fishing is such a great hobby… where else can you sit and enjoy the great outdoors and feed your family on the cheap at the same time?
Remember the saying: Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he eats for a lifetime.
Now’s your chance to teach a child how to fish and to respect the outdoors.
