RHINELANDER - Fishermen in Rhinelander took advantage of the beautiful weather Saturday.
The Rhinelander Lions Club held their 40th fisheree on Boom Lake.
Lions Club Vice President Dan Hoppe loves seeing everyone that comes out, especially the kids.
"Every year we try to expand our outreach to kids quite frankly. We have lots of free prizes there. There's no entry ticket anymore for kids, bikes we give away, tip ups, just about anything we can think of," said Hoppe. "The community is really generous in terms of donating a lot of the stuff. So it's just giving back to the kids and having a family event."
Every year the Lions Club also brings out other organizations to help raise awareness. This year, Let's Go Fishing and Wild Instincts came out to Hodag Park.
"We're happy that we can support that, like I said Wild Instincts and anything that's related to it. In the past we've had AIS with the DNR here just to get their word out. Anything we can do to support like things we try to do that," said Hoppe.
The fishing tournament will continue Sunday from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Hodag Park.
