This year's Fish On Fish Off fishing tournament will be held on July 27, 2013 with a rain date of July 28, 2013.

This event will be our ninth annual fishing tournament. Our club started this event so we could be the harbor of hospitality to other clubs throughout Lake Michigan. One of our goals for running this tournament was to have other yacht clubs feel welcome as our guests and hopefully use our facility during the year. It also gives us an opportunity to showcase our club and make new friends.

fish002Last year South Milwaukee Yacht Club won the traveling trophy. This marks the seventh time in eight years that South Milwaukee won the fishing tournament. I look forward to this year's contest. As I walk around our slips I can see that we have many new members who fish with their boats. Hopefully this year we will have many new and old members who like to fish help us win the traveling trophy. So this is a call out to all of the fishermen and ladies at our club. We need another good showing to help return our trophy. So come join the fun and get ready to tell all the fish stories about the one that got away.

fish004This year as in the past, the fishing tournament is open to all recognized yacht clubs on Lake Michigan. The entry fee for the tournament is $35.00 per boat with a 100% payback of the entry fee. Any boat that is participating in the contest will be given free dockage during the weekend of the tournament. There will also be a lunch offered after the tournament is over. Hopefully this year we will have other yacht clubs also participating in this event.

I would like to thank all of the volunteers from both clubs. Without their help this event would not be as successful as it is. If you have any questions about the tournament please contact Vice Commodore George Artka.
