Minnow races begin

Every Tuesday minnow races are happening at the beach. Who will have the fastest minnow. The sound of the musky bell lets everyone know the fun is about to begin.

Choosing the minnows.

Practice round calling the minnows. The vibration from hitting the stick on the side of the gutter draws the minnow towards the finish line.

Charlie’s Feet

It seems the local wildlife want to join in the search for Charlie. All day yesterday and this morning kids went in search for Charlie. All they came up with was Charlie’s feet. It seems a local critter thought Charlie would make for a good dinner. All they left behind was Charlie’s feet. Quinn and Tucker were great hunters as they found the feet. We all hope whoever took Charlie has a tummy ache. 🙂

This is called determination. To search the woods for these tiny feet! Way to go Tucker and Quinn!

Fishing with John

One of our 30th Anniversary celebration activities is a night fishing with John. Names can be submitted for a raffle drawing at our weekly picnic. As John says: “I am not a guide, we will just go out for a fun night of fishing.” Depending on interest he will either go out on White Birch Lake or take his canoe to a carry in lake.

Last night John and Curtis went to a carry in lake and had great success catching walleyes. guess what’s for dinner tonight? 🙂

A successful night fishing.

Charlie Update

It’s been a very busy start to the season this year, so I haven’t posted the Charlie pictures. This year’s Charlie is a little smaller, so there have been some fun new hiding spots chosen.

Congrats to Abigail, Joshua, Sarah and Hannah for finding Charlie on May 30th.

This was Sam and Abby’s first time at WBV. They had fun finding. The battle for the best hiders went back and forth between them and Niko, Lexi, Liam and Landon the week of June 2-10.
