Chad Gulseth, Manitowoc Marina Sponsored Hobie Kayak Fishing Professional and Dean Senglaub, Hobie Kayak representative from the Manitowoc Marina were the guest speakers at the October 17th NEWGLSF monthly meeting.
Both Chad & Dean did a great job detailing the benefits of kayak fishing and innovations for fishing from kayaks. Chad has traveled the country participating in kayak fishing tournaments.

The October 17th meeting also provided an opportunity for club members to compete in the annual smoked fish and smoked fish spread contest. I am glad I was not one of the judges because after sampling the entries at lunch time members attending said it would have been difficult to select a winner. All the entries were great and enjoyed by all attending.

Smoked Fish winners from right to left are Ken Lau (1st Place), Joe Stanzel (2nd Place), and Bruce Meissner (3rd Place.

Smoked Fish Spread winners from left to right were Terry Meissner (1st Place), and Jerry Kirk (2nd Place).


Northeastern Wisconsin Great Lakes Sport Fishermen (NEWGLSF) hosted their 41st Annual Kids’ Fish Derby for Bigs and Littles in the Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program on Saturday August 3rd. Bigs, Littles and volunteer fishing crews experienced a beautiful sunny morning and flat Lake Michigan seas on the day of the event at Seagull Marina in Two Rivers.

The largest fish of the day was caught by Little Brother Mark while fishing aboard the Whitecap with Captain Leon LeClair also Mark’s Big Brother. Mark’s winning fish was a Chinook Salmon weighing in at 22.63 pounds. Mark also landed a 5.16 pound Chinook Salmon on the fishing trip which turned out to be enough total fish weight to win a “Largest Catch” fish trophy for Captain Leon LeClair. The second place boat weighing in 20.46 pounds of fish was the “Kestrel” with Captain Jerry Kirk and third place boat was “Gator” weighing in 20.3 pounds of fish with Captains Tom Nowak & John Hemme.
