Michigan Home State Teams take 1st & 2nd
The 6th open qualifier for the North American Ice Fishing Circuit (NAIFC) was just completed in northern Michigan roughly 200 miles northwest of Detroit. At 2,400 acres in size and depths ranging down to 25 feet the forty-two, 2-person teams had plenty of territory and water to explore to find the hot “bite”.
With a lake that size Quicksilver was proud to have its 15-foot-high wind flags mark the start/finish line that teams must find and cross after 6 hours of fishing. A tournament winning team, the events pro-staff and volunteers were happy recipients of Quicksilver products in recognition of their efforts. Now they’ll be able to experience firsthand the protection and performance Quicksilver can bring to their ATV’s, UTV’s and snowmobiles.
Two Michigan home state teams took 1st and 2nd place and a WI team came in third. Teams from IN and OH were also competing with most of them brining in their limit of 8 sunfish and 8 crappie. Less than a pound in total weight separated the top 10 teams.
Only two more 2018 qualifiers are still to be held before the final list of invites are determined for the championship that will be held in December 2018. There’s still time for you to compete or volunteer and earn yourself some Quicksilver product.
The next stop for the NAIFC is Menomonie, WI and then Watertown, SD. Find out more at http://www.naifc.com/
