Right here at the Maumee River Walleye Run we are fully supporting the Boy Scouts of America. If you didn’t know…and how would you… Jeff Miller (my brother and the other voice on the Maumee River Walleye Run Podcast) dedicates a huge amount of his time to the Boy Scouts. He loves teaching both survival skills and lessons to scouts that they will carry with them for their entire life. Furthermore, both of his boys have received the highest ranking as Eagle Scout. That being said, the Maumee River Walleye Run crew will be running the Fishing Booth at the Camp Miakonda 100th Birthday Party. Make sure to come to the event and stop by the fishing section. We’ll be teaching kids how to fish whether it’s a walleye from the Maumee River or a bluegill from a farm pond. We got you covered.
