S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie Fishing Club

(A 501 C (3) not for profit organization)



The S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie Fishing Club is dedicated to  educating our youth in the joys and skill of fishing. We do this by participating in annual events such as the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission's "Fish for Free Days", Discover Presque Isle, Allegheny Earth Force, and various other events. We also partner with Presque Isle State Park and Millcreek Township Summer recreation program. During the Winter we present an Ice Fishing clinic where techniques and safety issues are presented to those who attend.

The S.O.N.S. have sponsored over 800 City of Erie school students into the P.F.B.C. P.L.A.Y. (Pennsylvania League of Angling Youth) program. Most recently we have sponsored 3 issues of the Erie Times News full page articles in their News in Education series on the subject of historical and current fishing information as well as environmental issues.

The S.O.N.S. contributed computer equipment, expertise and exhibits to the Erie County History Center's "Freshwater Fishing Capital of the World" exhibit.

The S.O.N.S. contributed to the purchase of canoes for the Presque Isle State Park outdoor adventure program where "at risk" students from "Perseus House and the Bayfront Center for Maritime Studies are afforded the opportunity to experience the beautiful inner waters of the park. We also sponsored day fishing trips on Lake Erie for these same students.
