Family fishing
Land a big smile from dad this Father's Day by giving to him a certificate for a future fishing trip.

MADISON - Kids of all ages who are still looking for that meaningful gift for dear old dad can print off and fill out a certificate for a time together at a future fishing trip.

The fishing certificate can be downloaded and printed from the Department of Natural Resources website by searching for "fishing." The certificate was created by DNR's fisheries management program and EEK!, DNR's website designed for children in grades 4-8.

Once dad claims his trip, kids are invited to send in a picture and a Big Fish story to EEK! for posting on the website. Licenses are still needed for participants aged 16 and over.

Older kids can share their stories and photos of their fishing trip with dad on DNR's Facebook page.
