THE EVENT
It's all in good fun. 
We spend a few hours chasing fish around a lake and then come back together on shore to tell our (sometimes slightly exaggerated) tales...
Prizes are awarded for:
  • first catch
  • biggest catch
  • smallest catch
  • first time baiting your own hook
  • and more!
WHAT DO I BRING?
  • food to share:  chips, cookies, etc. 
  • water bottle
  • sunscreen
  • fishing hat (not required, but maybe you'll win a prize for the best!)
  • life jacket - if you have one, otherwise you can borrow
    • cell phones are allowed so you can text Mark with updates from each boat and pictures
    • cell phones are NOT required - if you're nervous about losing it in the lake!
SAFETY FIRST!
All boaters will wear life jackets for this outing. Bring your own if you aren't crazy about wearing a bright orange one from Mark!

DRESS FOR THE EVENING'S WEATHER
Shorts or Pants? It may be quite different weather at 3:30pm vs 6:30 or 7:00pm. Look up the forecast, bring a light jacket if there are sprinkles in the forecast or if it projects to be cooler.
