Growing up in Minnesota has many advantages. At the same time, it helps to have a dad in your life that wants to and knows how to fish. While my dad did not fish, my grandpa Felty did. I will never forget some of the times on the boat, in the fish house or camping with Grandpa. For some Minnesotans, there is not someone in their world to share those experiences with. That is why professional angler Dan Jasper and others offer Fish Camp!
Dan Jasper, a licensed fishing guide and professional angler, has been able to fish Lake Minnetonka for many years with living on it. As a professional angler, he is sponsored by some of the leading fishing and boating companies out there like Niccum Docks, Liddle Marketing Company, Ranger Boats, Rapala, Cabin Fever, All Terrain Tackle, Oakley, and Pure Fishing among others. Because of those sponsors, Dan is able to use the latest state of the art equipment for his fish camps. Dan is also a tournament angler who is fun to fish with and passionately bubbles over fishing when helping others to learn the sport!
His fish camp program is over a two-day peroid where students ages 8-14 learn about the equipment, where to catch fish, how to tie those knots as well as what proper boat safety means. Then they get to practice casting, tying those knots, handling fish and how to rig their own line. To further the students fishing endeavors, Dan hooks them up with brand new high quality equipment like a Mitchell rod, reel and a tackle box full of tackle (valued at $65 at retail). On day two, Jasper takes them fishing either from shore or from his professionally rigged Ranger Boat, an experience the kids will never forget. All of this professional instruction over a two day period is offered for $125!
Dan enjoys helping kids learn as one can tell if they spend anytime around him. Even at the RockTenn Corporate fishing event, Dan took on the challenge of having the teenagers in his boat. Who in their right mind wants to work with two teenage boys in a boat for the day? Dan is up to the challenge.
In partnership with Liddle Marketing Company, Dan offers corporate fishing events where businesses can build business, reward top performers, and or offer fund raising events. Dan also offers his fishing camp to corporations who want to offer their employees a chance to have Dan, the pro angler himself, instruct employees’ kids.
