Lucky’s on the Lake Ice Fishing Tournament

20160123_151806 (522x640)

Due to ice conditions, the 2nd Annual “Lucky’s on the Lake Ice Fishing Tournament”, originally scheduled for January 16th, was held on the backup date of January 23rd on Lake Wisconsin. It was worth the wait because we had perfect weather, excellent ice conditions, good fishing, and both the tournament and the after-tournament party at Lucky’s, were well attended and an overall great success!

To start the day, tournament entrants came to Lucky’s on the Lake for breakfast and the tournament rules meeting, where the first 20 entrants each received a bottle of Kick’n Bass Fish Attractant and a Rod ArmorZ Ice fishing rod cover.

The ice anglers were then turned loose to fish on Lake Wisconsin until 3:30pm. First prize was awarded to local fisherman Nick Hellenbrandt. Nick got on fish right away and didn’t let up. He registered a mixed-bag total of 37 fish; which included a 25 fish legal limit of crappies. One of those black crappies Nick caught measured a whopping 16.25 inches!

A great time was had by all at Lucky’s on the Lake after-tournament party. Along with the cash prizes, bottles of Kick’n Bass Fish Attractant, Rod ArmorZ ice rod covers and other prizes were also awarded to those that placed in the tournament. In addition to the Lucky’s on the Lake meat raffle, Leinenkugels and Miller donated prizes that were raffled off as well including a really cool Leinenkugel’s fire pit shaped like a canoe and t-shirts from both Leinenkugels and Miller Brewing.

10% of the tournament proceeds were awarded to the Lake Wisconsin Alliance, whose mission is to balance the diverse interests of the Lake Wisconsin community while improving water quality, recreational opportunities, and sustaining a healthy ecosystem within the Lake Wisconsin watershed.

Special thanks to tournament sponsors Lucky’s on the Lake, Kick’n Bass, Rod ArmorZ, Leinenkugel’s and Miller Brewing, and all of the tournament entrants, for making the 2nd Annual “Lucky’s on the Lake Ice Fishing Tournament” such a great event.  Hope to see you next year!!!!

Sept 10th – LWA to Host Shoreline Erosion Site Tour

The Lake Wisconsin Alliance (LWA) will be hosting a Shoreline Erosion Site Tour on Thursday, September 10th. Those interested in attending should meet at Michael Park in Harmony Grove (corner of West Harmony Dr & Park St) at 5:30pm.

Shoreline erosion occurs on many lakes in Wisconsin. It can be caused by wave action and also by ice pushes in the spring. Sediment eroding from shorelines can have negative impacts on water quality and also deteriorate fish spawning and foraging habitat.  Stabilizing the shoreline with rock, bioengineered material, or native vegetation helps prevent shoreline erosion. This tour will show case two sites with different erosion control practices planned. These practices will help stabilize the shoreline and prevent further erosion from occurring. Attendees should plan on wearing walking shoes as one site will require a short walk to access it. Contact Melissa Keenan at 608-355-4838 or mkeenan@co.sauk.wi.us if you have any questions.
