We are SO excited for this event we can hardly contain ourselves. Fishing in Lake Superior is one of my favorite things to do. You never know what you will find on the other end of you line. The water is so clear you can watch the fish coming up towards the hole. Once you visit this water, you will want to return again.
We will be fishing that whole week and getting the media content we need for our sponsors and the event. We hope that you will come to fish with us at the end of that week and for sure we should be dialed in to the fishing at that point. We are getting some help from Tommy Hicks from Beyond the Catch Guide service. He is one of the top guides in the area. Trout, Salmon and many other species will be targeted.
We have a host hotel and they are giving discounts on lodging. The Winfield Inn has offered to host our gang and much of our film crew will be staying there. You can find the Winfield web site here. Ask for the Women On Ice discount. We are planning a special meet and greet on Friday night. The Wild Rice Retreat will host it and it starts at 7p.m. Just look at their web site gallery photos and see how beautiful it is. They sell beer and wine and we are trying to get some light appetizers provided. We plan on having a Q & A with the team, a showing of the 10 minute film from last years project. Grass Fed Cinema did an outstanding job and hopefully they will be joining us. We will also share departure details and form into groups.
his year, anglers fishing with the Women Ice Angler Project will receive a one week free membership to WI Women Fish. During that week you will have access to the members only facebook page and get to see what the group is all about. There is so much support and information in that group that we are sure you will want to stay for good.
