Sixteen students from Centennial School in La du Bonnet were treated to four hour fishing event on June 19th, the fourth year this event has taken place.

 Pro Angler and Outdoor writer Don Lamont was on hand to talk to the students about the sport of angling.

 Helping out Don was retired regional fisheries manager and Lac du Bonnet resident Doug Leroux. Doug handled the biological and fish habitat questions. Tournament angler Brian Jack brought his boat down  and helped with the seminars, including a introduction to safe boating. The students were treated to a one hour classroom presentation inside. After a lunch supplied by members of the Lac Du Bonnet Wildlife Association the students headed to the government dock to fish.. During that period one walleye and one pike were caught and released by the students.

At the end of the fishing all the students were given a soft sided tackle box and tackle provided by Cabela's Outfitters in Winnipeg. Students also went home with brand new rod and reel combos as part of a grant through the Fisheries Enhancement Fund.

Special thanks to Gerry Arbez and members of the La du Bonnet Wildlife Association, Peter Tulley from Cabela's, Manitoba Conservation, Brian Jack, Centennial School and it's staff, and Doug Leroux.  Doug received a plaque from Lac du Bonnet Wildlife Association President Gerry Arbez in appreciation for his work in the community.
