WALLEYES FOR TOMORROW – PEWAUKEE CHAPTER ICE FISHERY FEBRUARY 20th, 2021 is out on the Ice!!
The 2021 Ice Fishery will be held out on the Ice way out in front of Curlys Waterfront and Mugshotz Bar, look for the tent. To date we have 13″ of ice and the weather is going to be brutal for the next week which will only help the ice conditions. This year is going to be very different as you need to make the trek out on to the frozen tundra to be involved. Curlys Waterfront and Mugshotz will be fully staffed for your food and beverages and a plowed path will be right to the tent. This fishery is a fund raiser for the benefit of Pewaukee Lake and the fisheries of Wisconsin. Green tickets will be sold for the main raffle. They are available at The Beer Depot and at BPPantry 41. Fill them out and give them the money. I will get the tickets from them. The main prizes are: 65″ T.V., $500 cash and $300 cash – you do not need to be present to win for these items.
We will also have some really nice “Red bucket Items” to raffle for the people that are fishing and the guests that come out and brave the elements. These will be sold out on the ice in the tent. On the list today is a high quality portable ice shanty, a Jiffy Propane auger, a golf bag and balls, a yeti cooler, a slammer bait basket, a large booze wagon, scratch of ticket baskets and whatever else rolls in the door.
Fishing starts “at the break of day.” No fish can be registered if you are not signed up and have purchased some green tickets. Tickets for fishing and sign up are at the Wally Wagaon right by Curlys Waterfront. Curlys will be open early for bloody Marys and Mugshotz will be open by 9 a.m. for breakfasts.
Fish prizes will be: largest legal Pike (min. size 32″), Largest legal Bass (min. size 14″) winner will be by total length a tie breaker will be by weight. Largest crappie, largest Blue gill, largest Sunfish (pumpkin seed), largest Perch and largest rough fish (dog fish, mud puppy, carp, bull head or we’ll even count a clam). These will be length first and any tie will be by weight as a tie breaker. Any folks who take all this too seriously and start whining, cheating, or causing disruptive behavior will be removed from the premises.
The Main ticket raffle prizes you do not have to be present to win. The red bucket ticket items you have to be out on the ice at to win.
If you drive out a vehicle, use your head and park 20 yards away from the other guy and at least 30 yards from the tent!!! Remember no ice is safe ice, you are all at your own risk!

All fishermen must sign up at the Walleye Wagon at Curly’s Waterfront the day of the event. It will be open at 6:00 a.m.
Purchasing 1 ticket ($5.00) at that time gets you in for the Main raffle and qualifys you for the fishing and the fish cash prizes. Fishing ends at 3:00 p.m. sharp at the walleye wagon, you must be there with your catch.

Note: We are “Walleyes for Tomorrow” so we do not want to see Walleye’s out of the water. We also are very big into catch and release of game fish therefor any Northern Pike or Bass that is put in the reviving pond and is healthy enough for a successful release by a WFT staff person will constitute a “double the prize money”.

This years volunteer appreciation event was held at Gina’s Sports Dock and several boats went out in pursuit of some toothy critters from noon till 4:00 p.m. Jayden Schmitz swept the northern pike and bass categories.
Jayden won himself a Calcutta 400 and Muskie Mojo combo and another ultra light rod and reel jigging combo.
Here are the volunteers working hard at catching some fish…
Nice work Jayden! Keith Landers and Jeff Schmelzer also walked away with a free rod and reel combo.
Everyone that attended ate well and had plenty of beverages making it a wonderful appreciation event. A big thanks to Matt Groppi our conservation warden for applying for the Wardens Association grant to help fund the event.
