Guys’ Spring Getaway
“Round Up the Guys”
You’re in luck, because it’s always a good day for fishing at Black Bear Lodge. To round out the itinerary, we asked fishing enthusiasts what else they like to do during their downtime. Take a look.
The spring opener is held in the beginning of May, like we had to tell any of you fishing enthusiasts that! For insider info on what’s biting where, stop by Ray’s Landing and/or the St. Germain Sport Marina. Also… Don’t forget about the Free fishing weekend – always takes place in the beginning of June for both residents and non-residents so come one, come all!
Try Your Luck
What’s a great season of fishing with a tourney or two? We recommend the annual Spring Classic musky fishing tournament on the Eagle River chain and if you want to gamble online. And…..If you don’t have any luck on the water, you can always try your luck at the Lake of the Torches Casino in the town of Lac Du Flambeau.
Round of Golf
Did you know there are a whopping 16 golf courses within a 20 minute drive from St. Germain? Plus the 18-hole St. Germain Golf Club was rated an impressive four and a half stars by Golf Digest. Swing away.
Spend Friday night at the track. The Eagle River Speedway bills itself as “the Northwood’s fastest racing action.” There are six race divisions, from Junior Sprints to Midwest Modifieds. The season opener traditionally takes place in the middle of May.
A Little Snowmobiling
Yes, you read that right. Snowmobiling. As in the classic sled round-up held at the St. Germain Community Park towards the end of May. View and swap vintage and antique sleds. Music and food all day. Judging and awards are given later in the day. The only thing missing is the snow.
Chug Down a Great Beer
For all of you microbrew and craft beer connoisseurs, you won’t want to miss the annual UpNorth Beer Fest which takes place in Eagle River. It was recognized by Road Trips for Beer as “One Of The Top Ten Spring Festivals.”
