U.S. Highway 2 at Sanborn Ave.
Lake Superior has been one of WWF favorite destinations for many years. This place hold very special memories for us and every year we look forward to returning. One of my memories from last year was when Joan Wood gave Jo Curry a ride on her snowmobile so she could take a photo of the light house. Jo fished with several different women that weekend and soaked up the experience knowing it may be her last time out. It brought each of us deeper into the experience and when ever I return there, memories of Jo will be with me.
The beauty of this place is wonderful, and so is the fishing. One of the few places that when you get a flag on a tip up, it could be one of multiple species. One year we caught 10 different species in one day. How is that for variety? We have learned over the years that you have to search the down and we are hoping some of our members will be able to help find some fish the day before the event.
We are going to repeat the same schedule as last year. Friday March 8th, pre-fish for the event. If you have an atv or a sled bring it. It is hard to tell what the ice conditions will be at that time. Often we can drive out but you just never know. Anyone who wants to make it a long weekend can join us for the pre – fishing day on Friday. We will try to track down the area where fish are holding so be ready to run and gun. We then return to the host motel and have a little meet and greet in the hospitality suite. Bring some snacks to share in the hospitality suite. Then off to an optional fish fry and one of the local hot spots.
Saturday morning we head out to the hot spots and try to land some smelt, coho salmon, and whatever treasures the great lake will give up to us. This event you need to bring your own gear but some loaner gear is available. If you need tips ups, jig rods, or shack space just let me know. Sunday some gals will fish again so feel free to hang around. Last year some women got caught in a heck of a snow storm on the way home so be prepared for that type of March Madness. This event is open to all members of Wi Women Fish. I will also warn that a friendly poker game could break out in the hospitality suite on both nights.
