Ice Fishing 101 Class
January 15th, 2012
9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Crooked Lake, Oxford WI
Did you know that you can have a great tan in the winter with out going away on vacation? The sun reflecting off the frozen lakes of Wisconsin is a great way to ward off seasonal affect disorder and actually get a tan. People ask me all the time if I have been on vacation and I tell them that I have been Ice Fishing. This sport have been becoming more popular among men and women and we can help you get started. If you ever wanted to give Ice Fishing a try this is your chance. Some of you have been watching us from afar as we head out on our winter Ice Fishing adventures. This is your chance to learn what you need to know to join us.
We teach you how to ice fish. In this class, you will learn about ice safety, how to start and run a power auger, learn to set up a portable shack, set tips ups, use a jig rod, fish with live and artificial bait, how to use electronics, view life under the ice with the underwater camera and more. The instructors for this class are women and all the equipment is provided.
You will receive information on how to dress and heated shacks are provided to keep you warm. We start with a cup of coffee and learn the basic safety info before we head out onto the ice. The class location is 1 hour north of Madison and 1 hour south of Stevens Point. We are right inbetween Hwy I 39/ 51 and Hwy 90/94.
The cost of the class is $75 and that includes the $25 membership in WI Women Fish for 2012. Our instructors teach a shorter version of this class for the BOW program through UWSP the weekend of February 4th. More information on that class can be found at http://www.uwsp.edu/cnr/bow/wihome/events.aspx. Class size is limited to 10 Women. If you would like to gather some of your friend together and have us bring the class to your area, let us know as that could be a possibility.
