Class of the Week Summer Edition: Kids Make Fishing Lures

There's nothing more appreciative than catching your own fish!

In our "Class of the Week: Summer Edition," students learn what it takes to make their own fishing lures and they're ready to try them out on the water!

Professionals from Mepps Fishing in Antigo were on hand to teach students in Mr. Fritsche's Wisconsin Conservation and Outdoors summer school class.

These days, inside activities such as video games, are keeping kids inside, but Mr. Fritsche says his goal is to get his students excited about the outdoors.

Michael Sheldon, owner of Mepps Fishing, says he enjoys watching the kids take pride in making their own fishing lures and he wish he could be there for their experiences on the water.

Mike Keen who works in research and development for Mepps Fishing, highlights the importance of quality time with families.

Sheldon weighs in, saying fishing is a great outdoor activity for families because it has less distractions.

Jasmyne Humble will continue to have "Class of the Week" every Friday on Sunrise 7.
