Let's Go Fishing enrichs the lives of seniors, veterans, & youth through fishing and boating excursions that strengthen communities.
We believe that getting older shouldn't be the end of opportunities in the outdoors, especially for the seniors who have spent their entire lives fishing and are now home-bound or living in a nursing home. We improve the quality of life for individuals in the sunset years of their lives. On any given day in the spring, summer or fall, Let's Go Fishing takes out more than 200 guests a day in 28 communities across Minnesota.
"Last summer we took Ralph Nelson out fishing. We snapped this picture of him and his catch. It turned out to be his last fishing trip. He passed away on September 11, 2003. At the funeral, his family used this poem on the cover of his funeral brochure. His family called after the funeral to thank us and made a donation to Lets Go Fishing in his honor."
I pray that I may live to fish until my dying day, And when it comes to my last cast, I most humbly pray,When in the Lord's safe landing netI am peacefully asleep,That in his mercy I'll be judgedGood enough to keep.- Anonymous
