Tom Goodrich will be contacting you with final details. Your emails will be shared – let Tom know if you are NOT ok with that (Tom@Fishingforlife.org). No gear needed except cold weather gear. A special note on Weather: Weather is a significant factor in October, we can have anything from a balmy 60 degrees with sunshine to 25 degrees and a blizzard-like conditions. It is possible, although unlikely, that this event can get snowed out. Rain in October can be sleet and is generally C-O-L-D. Wind is significant even if it is a calm day since boats are open. You will be dealing with wind when going across the lake, so it is highly recommended to wear clothing that protects from wind. In short, dress for warmth and don’t be shy about layers. Hats and gloves are encouraged. If you have them, bring extra gloves. Expect that you will get wet handling rods, so plan accordingly.
