Next Friday through Sunday (June 7,8,9) is “Take a Kid Fishing” Weekend and Minnesota residents can fish without a license if they take someone 15 or younger out angling.   The D-N-R’s Jeff Ledermann says he started his kids fishing when they were two:

“My younger one is now 22 and I’m going out with her on Friday — so you build that interest at a young age and you’ll have a partner to go fishing with for life.”

Ledermann says fishing connects people to wild places right outside their door.
