This is a free event for members
Join us for our annual Petenwell Ice Outing where we try to locate Walleye Crappie and Catfish. We get better every year at this event and we hope that this one is the best yet. We meet at a boat launch ( to be determined based on current fishing information and ice conditions) and head out from there. At times, vehicle traffic is safe and other times we will reach our destination via atv or even on foot. If we need ATV’s, there are enough club members who are equipped that we are able to shuttle gear and members out to the fishing site.
Last year there were fourteen club members who attended and we caught Walleye, Catfish and White bass. The biggest walleye caught was 25 inches and it was caught on a tip down. Dawn out fished everyone and seemed to have the hot hole. Robin also showed us she had the magic touch for cat fish. We had Keri take some video and it can be seen at http://www.bearsolis.com/.
If you are new to ice fishing and want to attend, we have loaner gear available and extra room in the shacks. There is no cost for this event if you are a member of WI Women Fish. Specific meeting location will be sent out to those interested in attending. We usually meet at 8:00 am and fish all day. Everyone brings what they want to eat and drink and fishing tactics are shared. This event will be posted as a facebook event and you can rsvp there. Be sure to join our WI Women Fish facebook page. If you plan on attending and do not do facebook, send me an email and I will send you the information via email. If you are planning on attending this event, please join as a member prior to the event so all on ice time can be spent fishing.
