REGISTRATION IS NOW AVAILABLE ! Click on the WWW Logo to the left.
World Walleye Association and WI Women Fish are once again proud to present the 2nd annual Women’s Walleye Weekend. This is a great opportunity for Women anglers and we have the top female pro’s in the country here to help you improve your skills. The weekend’s activity will be held in Winneconne WI, home of the Wolf River and Lake Winneconne.
Like last year, expect great clinics including, hands on (on the water) trolling., taking place on Saturday with the weekend wrapping up with your choice of a Women’s only team boater tournament or Individual shore fishing tournament on Sunday. 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 and there are plenty of options for shore fishing. Women with all levels of experience are encouraged to sign up. The team boater tournament is a two women team tournament so grab a friend and sign up. No boat…. the shore fishing tournament is a perfect fit. 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 in the team tournament and you do not have a partner, we can help match you up with another angler. Sorry guys, no men in the boats . We are also offering hands on instruction on launching and loading so if that is an area that is holding you back, please don’t let that stop you.
The weekend will start with early registration and a meet and greet at the Fin and Feather located at 22 West Main St., Winneconne, WI. Here you can meet the pro’s and the other participants.
The clinics will take place Saturday morning at Woodeyes / Critters http://www.critterssports.com/ , with the afternoon open to get out and pre fish. The complete schedule of events will be posted in the near future. The fee for the clinics only, which includes the dinner is $60 per person.
