Let’s Go Fishing Itasca is all about volunteering. We currently have over 30 volunteers trained and ready to take seniors fishing or cruising on our lakes. And of course we have all-volunteer leadership to run the chapter.
If you have the knowledge to operate a pontoon, you can be part of a two-person team who can take seniors on outings. There will always be a minimum of 2 adult volunteers on each pontoon – one to captain the watercraft, the other to assist. You only need to be over 18 and be able to assist seniors on the pontoon. To be a captain you must be over 24. Both the captain and 1st mate receive training the captain receiving more.
We provide both organizational training and on-the-water training for our volunteers. All you need to do is sign up. We encourage husband-wife, father-son, mother-daughter, etc. teams to volunteer as well as individuals who just love the water and fishing. What better way to spend a day helping seniors who have given so much to us, and also being on the water fishing or cruising?
If you have the heart and desire to help the seniors and would rather not be on the water, you can help by volunteering at the annual fish fry held in April, annual fishing contest held in July, parades, and other on land support. You may have special talents that can benefit LGFWS.
