Pine County hosts collaborative fishing event


Pine County Probation Supervisor Kevin Glass says he “took the fishing pole and cast it” by organizing an afternoon of fishing on Sturgeon Lake for 17 youth on Monday. Participating students and their friends attend school in the East Central, Hinckley-Finlayson, and Pine City school districts.

Gregg Campbell, Willow River High School Principal, took youth out on his pontoon; Stef Youngberg, East Central High School Principal, grilled almost 60 hotdogs; Andrew Almos, East Central Superintendent, took kids out in his boat; Bret Grundmeier, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MN DNR) Conservation Officer, helped recruit other DNR officers who had boats, life jackets, and poles; and Sherry Johnson, Pine County Probation, caught the majority of the worms used for bait.

Also helping were Sheriff Jeff Nelson, several Pine County deputies, Pine County Health and Human Services staff Kristin Schroeder and Adriane Wimmer, Probation Director Terry Fawcett, and Cultural Community Coach Bill Schaaf.

Glass said the goal of getting youth outdoors doing something prosocial and fun was accomplished. He said everyone he spoke with said they had fun and would like to do it again.

Glass is already thinking about next year’s event. He said he wants to have prizes and a trophy.
