Since it was founded in 2008, the Detroit Lakes Area Chapter of Let's Go Fishing has served several hundred lakes area residents each summer.


The nonprofit organization provides free pontoon rides and fishing excursions not only for seniors and challenged adults at area care facilities -- for whom the organization was originally chartered -- but also for kids and veterans.
