Kids with the Trophy

May 21, 2024

A great program being held in Victoria Harbour ON. It’s a Youth Fishing League. It’s run by Fishing Friendzy Foundation and it’s made to get more kids connected to nature through fishing.

Dates are:

June (Tuesday’s) 6-8pm

4th, 11th, 18th, 25th

You must pre-register your child (ages 6-13) which is $275. email for a registration form. Each participant will receive over $150 worth of gear (rod, reel, tackle, tackle box, jersey, glasses, hat, trophy and a chance to win some amazing prizes)


Fishing Friendzy is a family owned company run by a husband and wife team, Michael and Melissa Sklad. They have four free spirited children that are the their pride and joy.

Their dedication to educating kids about fishing has grown Fishing Friendzy to be leaders of kids catching their very first fish. Michael and Melissa believe that kids and parents need to spend more time in nature bonding with each other and getting in touch with our natural environment.

Through their passion of fishing and being positive role models, they have brought fishing to families who don’t have someone or somewhere to teach. Kids are the future and by instilling the love for fishing in them they believe when those children grow up to be politicians, CEO’s, teachers and more, they will make those choices that will benefit our environment.

We encourage catch and release but it’s much more than that. Connecting kids to nature will ensure they have a deep appreciation for it and will in turn protect it. Always be open to learning new things and seeing from someone else’s perspective.

Nice Catch!
