Mark Sunday, September 27 on the calendar if you love boating, fishing, eating a great meal of fresh fish and just plain talking about being on the water. Sunday, September 27 will be the 7th annual Great Lakes Marine Sales and Service’s annual “Fall Day of Fun!”
Headquarters will be The Ritz with the docks lined with the latest Skeeters, Premier Pontoons and Alumacrafts just waiting for people to just drop by and take them out on the water for rides and test drives.
For those who want to fish, there is the annual fishing tournament that kicks off the day’s activities at 7 a.m. Cost to enter the contest is $10 per boat (for a team of two), and you can sign up early at Great Lakes Marine for the chance at an early bird registration prize or register on September 27 at The Ritz between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. If you have any questions, give them a call at (712)336-3822.
The tournament ends at 2 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for the heaviest combined weight of five perch, five bluegills and five white bass/yellow bass. Awards will also go to the smallest fish brought to the scale.
The fish caught will be weighed and cleaned for a special fish fry, which begins at 3 p.m. with the rest of the “fixins” prepared by the staff at The Ritz.
Prizes and awards will be given out at the fish fry.
Yes, fall is definitely in the air, and with it comes the chance to join in the fun at the annual “Fall Day of Fun” sponsored by Great Lakes Marine Sales and Service.
