Yamaha Pro Angler Spencer Deutz Hosts Third of Five Youth Clinics at SCHEELS in Fargo

Fargo, ND — June 18, 2024 — Yamaha Pro Angler Spencer Deutz successfully hosted the third of five Yamaha Outboards Youth and Family Fishing Clinics at SCHEELS in Fargo. The event, held on June 18, 2024, drew participation from young anglers and their families, providing them with an engaging and educational experience.

The clinic kicked off with a 30-minute presentation by Deutz, where the future anglers gained valuable insights into the sport of fishing. The presentation covered a range of topics, including fishing techniques, conservation practices, and the importance of family involvement in outdoor activities.

Following the presentation, participants moved outside for hands-on education sessions. Here, the young anglers practiced casting techniques under the guidance of Deutz and the SCHEELS team, learning how to improve their skills and accuracy. The session also included fish identification, helping participants recognize different species and understand their habitats.

One of the highlights of the outdoor session was a tour of Deutz's Ranger 620PRO, powered by a Yamaha F300XCA. The tour provided an up-close look at the state-of-the-art fishing vessel, showcasing its advanced features and capabilities. The young anglers were thrilled to explore the boat and learn about its operation and equipment.

In addition to the hands-on activities, the clinic introduced participants to Project Tikka Mino. The Tikka Mino is a one-piece jigging minnow from Clam Pro Tackle, designed for vertical presentation to catch fish through ice or in open water. As part of the project, each child received a blank coloring page to design their own Tikka Mino. At the end of the year, Deutz will select ten winners from these designs, and each winner will receive a custom-painted Tikka Mino that perfectly matches their creation.

“The Youth and Family Fishing Clinics are a fantastic way to engage the next generation of anglers,” said Deutz. “It’s incredible to see the enthusiasm and creativity of these young participants. Project Tikka Mino adds a fun and artistic element to the experience, and I can’t wait to see the amazing designs they come up with.”

The Youth and Family Fishing Clinics aim to foster a love for fishing and the outdoors among young people, encouraging them to develop their skills and appreciate the natural environment. With two more clinics scheduled for this year at SCHEELS in Fargo, Deutz and his team are excited to continue their mission of educating and inspiring future anglers.

Each youth angler received a Yamaha hat, t-shirt and a complimentary rod and reel combination courtesy of the National Professional Anglers Association Future Angler Foundation (NPAA) Future Angler Foundation (FAF).

Spencer Deutz, Yamaha Outboards, SCHEELS, National Professional Anglers Association and the Future Angler Foundation would like to thank all participants, their families, and the community for their support in supporting the clinics and youth fishing throughout the area. The event paves the way for a brighter future for fishing and conservation efforts in our region.
