International Winter Competition Comes to Fond du Lac in 2015 Fond du Lac is proud to host the 2015 WISSA World Ice and Snow Sailing Championship on February 9-14. This international competition, held on the ice of Lake Winnebago just off the shores of Roosevelt Park, is an annual championship event coordinated by the World Ice and Snow Sailing Association (WISSA). Competitors will race in three classes: Open (any sled powered by a windsurfing rig), Hand Held (any hand held sail, such as a kite wing or skate sail), and Kite (all sails tethered with lines). “During the day thrilling races will take place on the ice, and our sponsors will have their booths open to demonstrate equipment and sell food and refreshments,” said Dan Deuster, president of the Winnebago Association of Kiteboarders. 2015 marks just the fifth time in the 35-year history of the competition that the event will be held on U.S. ice. Last year’s championship was held in St. Petersburg, Russia. Previous participants have come from the United States, Russia, Sweden, Finland, Canada, and other countries.

icy thrills, timeless traditions and a prized fish bowling, ice sailing, stupid human tricks and more. Of course, no festival would be complete without plenty of enticing and unique foods and beverages to warm your spirit!

Beneath the frozen surface of Lake Winnebago lurks a prehistoric giant. A living fossil left over from the Age of the Dinosaurs. A fish so fascinating, it doesn’t chase lures so much as it lures folks from far and wide.

But without a doubt, each day’s biggest highlight is the weigh-in on shore, when spearers return with their prized catches. It’s then you can get a rare catch of your own—a brief glimpse of the elusive Lake Sturgeon. With some fish reaching a length of more than 7 feet and weighing over 200 pounds, the enormous and bizarre sturgeon is a sight you won’t soon forget!

We are speaking, of course, of the Great Lakes Sturgeon. And here in Fond du Lac, no creature on Earth is more celebrated, venerated and passionately pursued. For fishing enthusiasts and funseekers alike, it all adds up to one unforgettable experience! The excitement kicks off the second Saturday of each February. That’s when sturgeon spearing season officially opens on Lake Winnebago, one of just two places in all of North America where sturgeon spearing is legal, and the only place in the world where sturgeon spearers gather in such great numbers. For many, the sport is part of a rich annual tradition, as wisdom, equipment, and family lore are often passed down from generation to generation. Thousands of anxious sturgeon spearers stream out onto the frozen lake, quickly setting up the

Finally, each day closes with families and friends gathering at many of the local establishments to share their day’s tales and tell stories of the “one that got away.” world’s largest temporary “shanty town” of fishing huts, or “dark houses.” Come opening morning, they begin their quest and patiently wait for their quarry to appear. Meanwhile, the season’s opening also marks the beginning of a fun-filled weekend festival. At the heart of the excitement is the “Sturgeon Stampede Winter Kite Boarding Classic”, a thrill-packed, pulse-racing competition for both spectators and participants. Daredevil competitors take to the ice on boards, skates and skis, pulled along at breakneck speeds by harnessing the wind with brightly colored parachutes and handheld sails. They race, jump and perform stunts that dazzle and delight in an amazing spectacle. If witnessing their incredible feats inspires you, why not get going yourself? You’ll find all sorts of activities from ice skating and broomball to ice

26

Though sturgeon spearing season lasts up to 16 days (or until the harvest cap is met), the best time to experience the most fun is during opening weekend. Don’t miss your chance to “catch” one of North America’s most unique winter celebrations! For more detailed information on Sturgeon Spearing please visit www.fdl.com/sturgeonspearing


HUNTING

FISHING
