Next Member Meeting: Wednesday March 1, 2017  Lake Superior Taproom, 532 West Bayfield Street, Washburn, Wisconsin.For our next membership meeting on Wednesday, March 1, 2017 we are doing something different. It will be held at the South Shore Lake Superior Taproom in Washburn. Which is located at 532 West Bayfield Street right next to the Holiday Station. Formerly the Washburn Bowling Alley.
Social Hour starts at 6:00pm, with glasses and sampler flights of beer for sale and complimentary pizza for members and new members. A good time to talk about fishing. At 7:00 pm our guest speaker Craig Hoopman, owner/operator of Bay fisheries, will give us the state licensed commercial fisherman perspective on the current fisheries situation. There is a lot of misinformation out there about what the commercial fishermen do and don’t do.And it needs to be clarified and understood. Then a short business meeting to set up our assembly of the Ghost Net Marking Kits in April and other Association business. Look forward to seeing you there.COHO MADNESS TOURNAMENT RESULTSTotal Creel #1 Will Keyes-166.4 inches #2 Randy Udeen 69.5 inches. #3 Tim Farendorf-65.3 inchesLargest Coho #1 Will Keyes-25.3 inches # 2 (tie) Matt Grutner and Brian Fleig-25 inches.Largest Brown Trout #1 Stephanie Humblet-26.1 inches #2 Will Keyes-25.1 inches #3 Tim Farendorf-21.3 inches.Will Keyes was the big winner, walking away with $600 in total prize money as well as an Inflatable life vest.Stephanie Humblet won $200.
