2021 Youth Spring Tune Up Outing, Holcombe Flowage, Holcombe Wisconsin
June 5, 2021

         On Saturday June 5, 2021 we will be holding our annual spring chapter outing. Traditionally this has been a Top Water only event.  The decision has been made to open it up to an all artificial event in hopes of putting a few more fish in the net and increasing attendance.  Last year’s event was held on Dairyland Flowage and yielded no scorable fish so we would like to avoid that if at all possible. 

Additionally this year’s event will be geared toward getting youth out fishing.  There will be door prizes given out for any youth under 18 who attend.  A rod will be awarded to the largest youth fish.  If there are no youth fish, there will be a random draw for all youth attending.

 This is a social event that is a great way to kick off the year with some fun competitive fishing and good company.  The traveling trophy will be presented to the winner of the event at the end of the day.  We hope to see you all there!  The full set of rules is listed below.   If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Matt Ross at 920-242-1631 or email muskyoperations@gmail.com
