I just fished the Chippewa Flowage and fell in love. Great fishing, great scenery and a great location. Our member Amanda Wilson is hosting her WWF sisters and sharing her knowledge of the lake. She owns Deerfoot Lodge, a resort right on the water.
March is prime time to catch a Master Angler Crappie. These waters have not been open for Ice Fishing long and you could fish here and not see another person all day. There is lots of water to cover, but great fishing is available right in front of Deerfoot Resort.
We have a few special things planned including a photo/video contest. Take a picture or 30 second video and text it to our special number during your stay. Those images will be entered into a contest and the winner will receive a new Go Pro or action camera. On Saturday night, we will watch a slide show of all photos entered.
We are also have a contest to decorate or embelish a wood plank tip up. Bring it to the event and the tip ups will be entered into a contest for another very nice prize. Now is the time to start thinking of your ideas and get to work on one of your old tip ups.
AND wait there is more; We are having a $5 biggest ( Holy Crap) crappie tournament with a bonus prize for the (crappie) crappie. (smallest fish).
There is no fee for this event. Lodging is available at Deerfoot Lodge. They have cabins or hotel rooms so get to work on getting some friends together to share a cabin. I stayed in one last weekend and they are super nice. Call (715) 462-3328 to reserve a cabin.
