Fishing camp provides bonding opportunity with parents and children

The evening camp allowed parents to participate, too, Martin said.

“The dads come out (to be with their children) and it’s a bonding time,” he said. “Until I was 13 years old, when my father passed away, our bonding time was out on the lake fishing. It was a wonderful experience, and I’ll have the memories for the rest of my life."

Greg Hug joined his son Braden.

“I wanted to spend time with the boy,” he said. “Having it in the evening is convenient. Normally, time is a little tight so we don’t get out as much as we want.”

Safety and fun

Tuesday, the camp kicked off when Jaynie Darby caught the first fish.

In the first hour, the children hooked more turtles than fish, but as the sun sank behind trees, fish started to bite and the happy anglers started reeling them in.
