Let's Go Fishing

Bremer Bank in Brainerd/Baxter/Aitkin is proud to be a corporate sponsor of the new Brainerd area Let's Go Fishing Chapter.

Let's Go Fishing was created to enrich the lives of people age 55 and older through free fishing and boating excursions that strengthen communities, build relationships and create memories.

Fishing and boating is such a common past-time for Minnesotans and we may often take for granted how easy it is for many of us to enjoy our state's beautiful lakes and rivers. LGF returns the outdoor experience to those whom might not otherwise have the opportunity to fish, boat or enjoy time with friends on the water. Since its inception in 2002, the organization has served over 15,000 seniors, youth, veterans and disabled adults.

For the guests, LGF is more than just an opportunity to go fishing. The program returns a sense of freedom to the lives of the guests, provides a safe opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, and offers time to socialize with peers and meet new friends. Thanks to the dedication of nearly 1,000 volunteers LGF is successfully bringing communities together and enhancing the lives of thousands of Minnesotans.

Each year, LGF sees a growing demand from individuals, organizations and communities for its services. As they look to the future, they hope to bring their unique program to new communities throughout Minnesota and beyond. With your help they can continue to bring joy to the lives of thousands of individuals.
