4. Go on a fishing adventure, and spend a minimum of one hour trying to catch a fish. Put into practice the things you have learned about fish and fishing equipment.  The Places to Boat and Fish Map from Take Me Fishing™ can help you find places to boat and fish in your state, and what you might catch when you get there. This map and the TakeMeFishing.org website  will help your unit and members know how and where to obtain licenses in your state if needed, and what amenities surround your selected body of water.
