Winthrop Harbor-Day 2
(Illinois/Wisconsin state line)
Sunday, January 30, 2022
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Advanced Tactics & Strategies

This multi species class will prepare you for the upcoming season! We take a seasonal approach as we discuss how to locate fish and the seasonal tactics used for kings, coho, steelhead, browns & lake trout; and how to effectively present a complete spread of lures to trigger strikes. This seminar will teach you how to interpret the clues the lake and fish give so you can make decisions and adapt to changing conditions. Currents and how they impact fish migrations, lure presentations, boat control and how to stay on top of active fish will shorten your learning curve.
