2020 Official AOTY River Outing and Fishoff Against Metrowest

Post by LadyLuck »

2020 Manistee River & Manistee Beach/PierTournament:
On March 28 the Detroit Area Steelheaders and Metro-west have our annual get together for a Spring Steelhead Challenge. As with the years in the past, things will pretty much be the same.

Main DAS/Metro-west Challenge:
3 Best Steelhead/Rainbows (by combined weight) are the only eligible species with a minimum of 15" to be considered for weigh-in. A simple tally of the total weight between the two clubs will determine the 2020 Spring Steelhead Challenge winning club.

Fishing is allowed anywhere along the Manistee river including the pier, beach and river.
Please note: no boats fishing below the Insta-launch RR bridge are eligible. Although boats are allowed to fish the river.

Saturday March 28. Fishing starts at 6am, but you can start later. Weigh-in is at 5pm at Trevor Wisniewski's cabin, Metro-west member. Maps will be provided via email or text message to members who RSVP prior to the outing.

A $5 Registration Fee is required. For those who want to participate there will also be a $5 Big Fish Pool for a 100% payout to the largest Steelhead by weight for DAS members. Please contact prior to the outing if possible. Collection for both registration and Big Fish will be taken at the weigh-in after the outing. Please make sure to pay even if you do not catch fish if you are participating for the Big Fish pool. Thank you.

We will be having our luncheon/dinner at Trevor Wisniewski's cabin of Metro-west after the weigh-in.

Manistee: Manistee Hotel, Super 8 by Wyndham Manistee, Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham, and Days Inn by Wyndham Manistee are some hotels located in Manistee which is roughly 20/30min from Tippy Dam.

If you wish to attend the Manistee outing or have any questions please contact:

Anna Kulpa (586) 291-4555 (email at akulpa00@yahoo.com) via text message or phone call prior to the outing for a headcount. This will help us keep track of all attendees since most of us will be fishing anywhere from Tippy to the pier. Also we need a headcount by March 22 so that we know how many people to feed. Hope to see many familiar faces and some new faces as well.
Thanks again!!

A) Headcount and names within your group (guest are welcomed)
B) Location you plan to fish (Beach/Pier or River)
