Members of the Bass Pro Shops / Tracker Marine Boating Centers State Fishing Team have been involved with numerous community activities over the past 10 years since their beginnings. In concert with the Friends of Hardy Lake, and members of the Indiana DNR of Hardy Lake these State Fishing Team members have been involved with two special fishing events at the facility each year. State Team members donate their time, and boats to take groups of 5th graders from the local schools fishing. During the events these next generation individuals learn the principles of boating, fishing, and conservation.
In 2015 employees of our Indiana State Parks, Indiana Department of Natural Resources, and the Friends of Hardy Lake Group recognized the Bass Pro Shops / Tracker Boats State Fishing Team Members with their Partnership Award.
