9:00 am - 2:00 pm


Pentwater Municipal Marina
Pentwater, MI United States

This year marks the 23rd Annual Pentwater Sportfishing Association Take-a-Kid Fishing Day in honor of Whitey Wegner, who started the event in 1990. Children must be between the ages of 10-16 years old and must register with Joy Hamilton of the MSU Extension Office in Hart. Verify start time when registering.

Meet at the MSU Extension office in Hart to board the bus to transport the kids to Pentwater Municipal Marina. Ken Wegner of the Pentwater Sportfishing Association matches the kids up with the captains who take them out fishing. They return to port by noon to weigh in fish and get pictures taken. From there, the bus takes them to the Oceana Eagles Club for an afternoon picnic. Prizes are awarded at the picnic, and everyone gets fish to take home.

Pentwater, on the shores of Lake Michigan, is a few minutes South of Ludington, on U.S. 31.
