Keweenaw Land Trust to host free ice fishing Feb. 18

HANCOCK -- The Keweenaw Land Trust (KLT) invites you to try some ice fishing from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18, at the Marsin Nature Retreat.

This is an opportunity for you and your children to experience the joys of being out on the ice while learning just how it’s done. Scott Pugh, experienced angler, has generously volunteered to set up a couple of tents on the Portage and share his fishing skills. He assures KLT the ice is safe. It’s FREE FISHING weekend, so all ages can fish without a license. Some fishing equipment will be provided. Scott will bring tip-ups and jigging rods to share, but bring your own gear if you can. The KLT will have a couple small of pop-up tents.

They’ll have a fire going in the outdoor shelter and snacks and games will be available inside the beautifully renovated Marsin Retreat. Curtis Perala is making his famous and delectable booyah (hunter’s stew) to share. Feel free to stay and socialize as long as you like.

Check the KLT Website for any changes and updates. Driving directions: From M26, take the Canal Road past Oskar 6 miles to the Red Brick Road, turn right and drive 1/8 mile to the Marsin, where you turn left into the parking area.

Questions? Call Carol Pfefferkorn at 231-6447.
