Riding Under the Lights! – we will light the lake up with light stands for this event so that we can ride until 11:00 p.m.  There will be music, pizza, beverages, and a real party gets started when Raph Derome takes a set on the cable!

 

 

Family Fishing Day – Sunday June 30

Family Fishing Day – Sunday, June 30th

We are hosting a family fishing day to allow all those rod-and-reel families a space to enjoy their hobby, while seeing our facility and learning about wakeboarding all at the same time!  No entry or participation fee, everything is FREE!

Please arrive around 9:00 a.m. for a brief orientation of the day.  We will begin the fishing contest at 9:30 a.m. and this will last until approximately 11:00 a.m.  We will be giving away prizes for the most bluegill caught in two groups, ages 12 and under, and ages 12-18.  Adults are of course welcome to fish, but they cannot compete in the contest.

At 11:30 a.m. we will count up everyone’s bluegill and award the prizes, we will also start cleaning the fish for a ‘fish and chip’ style fish fry.  We will supply water and soda but you might want to bring a cooler for your family, as well as lawn chairs and/or sun tents (we do not have very much shade).  First place in each group will get a Gander Mountain gift certificate and a FREE lesson on the cable.  Second place in each group will get a FREE lesson on the cable.  Anyone participating in the fishing event (parents and children) are welcome to swim and enjoy our lake afterwards.  We will open to our normal members at noon, but you may continue to swim and enjoy the lake as long as you like.

We will provide plenty of wax worms or other live bait, but you will be responsible for your rod, reel, and any other gear.  This will be all shoreline fishing, please no boats or kayaks (although you are still welcome to bring these to enjoy after the contest!).  Please only keep the bluegill, and throw anything else you might catch back.

We could also use any adult volunteers that can help children fish and would be interested in helping with the fish fry afterwards. info@wakeopolis.com
