Starting a women's fishing group

By Janice Wittkopp - January 1, 2007
Ladies, let's go fishing. I don't see enough women enjoying this wonderful sport. It is so exciting to catch your first muskie, walleye or northern. Some women may be intimidated to go fishing with men, so that is why I am forming a women's fishing group in this area. It will be based on a women's fishing club in Florida called - Ladies, Let's Go Fishing. I also enjoy fishing with my husband who has taught me many things about fishing. I am going on a women's fishing trip in May up near Eagle River. Patricia Strutz, who is a women's fishing guide in this area, is devoted to getting more women involved in fishing. First and foremost she is a guide for both men and women. However, it is her goal to see more women fishing. Her women's trips are entitled - WOW - Women on the Water. Her web site is - www.ablondandherboat.com.

Patricia inspired me to form this women's fishing group. It is an exciting sport that can be enjoyed by both men and women. It is my goal to introduce this sport to more women. Activities in my group will include going fishing together in the local area, going on fishing trips up north such as WOW trips, going to fishing shows and seminars and any other ideas as presented by members.

So, ladies, if you love to fish, are serious about fishing, do everything for yourself or are willing to learn, send me an e-mail at janwitt@excel.net or call me at 920-893-8921 to get this women's fishing group started !!

I am a 56-year-old woman just recently retired who plans to devote a great deal of my time promoting fishing for women. I am presently starting a women's fishing group in Sheboygan, Fond du Lac and Manitowoc counties.
