WI Women Fish and the World Walleye Association are proud to present the 1st annual Women’s Walleye Weekend. This is a great opportunity for Women anglers and we have the top female pro’s in the country to help you improve your skills. The weekend’s activity will be held in Winneconne WI, home of the Wolf River and Lake Winneconne. This is a great family destination and with it being Mothers Day weekend, we have activities for the whole family while the Ladies get to fish.
Along with the great clinic topics and learning opportunities, we are offering a tournament. You will get to experience fishing a real tournament just like the pro’s do. Complete with a cash pay out, stage, and many prizes. We specifically chose this location due to the great fishing opportunities but also, because a huge boat is not necessary. All boats and all levels of experience are encouraged to sign up. This is a two person team tournament so grab a friend and sign up. This is an opportunity not only to learn from the pros, but to also experience the excitement of the whole tournament setting, surrounded by a group of friendly and supportive women. If you want to participate and you do not have a partner, we can help match you up with another angler. Sorry guys, no men in the boats.
To be matched up with a partner we have a grading system in place to help match people up. Everyone can enjoy the experience and some people may be more intense about it than others. Rate yourself and send an email and we will help you find a partner. Please include if you are have a boat or do not have a boat.
Class A – very experienced angler looking to fish very competitively with intensity.
Class B – Average angler really trying to fish this tournament seriously and hope to make a good showing.
Class C, has fishing and boating experience, wants to enter the tournament for the experience and wants to have a good time and catch some fish.
Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are offering valet launching and loading for the tournament. A key tag by boat number will be used and you will not have to worry about launching or loading the day of the tournament. Hands on practice for launching and loading will be available Saturday afternoon.
The weekend will start with early registration and a meet and greet at Woodeye’s located at 700 W. Main Street Winneconne WI. Here you can meet the pro’s and the other participants. Woodeyes and Critters Wolf River Sports are both at this location and have food, drinks and all the latest gear to fish the Wolf River System. http://www.critterssports.com/
