Let's Go Fishing enriches the lives of seniors, youth, veterans and disabled through fishing & boating excursions strengthening communities.
Your tax-deductible gift will bring the fishing and boating experience to people who have otherwise little hope of ever again putting a line in the water. Let's Go fishing serves Seniors, Veterans and youth all across the state of Minnesota and into Wisconsin. On any given day in the spring, summer or fall, Let's Go Fishing takes out more than 350 guests a day on custom pontoons specifically designed to accommodate our guests.
Since 2002, Let's Go Fishing has positively impacted the lives of over 150,000 people across Minnesota and 1 location in Wisconsin. Add in the benefit of family members seeing their loved ones smile and enjoy their time with us and you could say the benefits reach thousands more. Nearly all of this is accomplished by volunteers! (over 2,000 to date!)
