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.

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. A Chili lunch and Hot Chocolate will be provided.
Once you know the basics you will feel comfortable joining us on our annual adventures to MN and to Lake Superior. Many women look for other group members to go out ﬁshing with in between club events so this class will give you the conﬁdence you need to go out with friend.
