Join us at the Fishing for Life event on Prior Lake!

Come with us as we join Fishing for Life at the first ever all-gals event at SandPoint Beach on beautiful Prior Lake!

— Fishing contest — Lovely Lucky Lure Building — Trophies & medals — Free picnic lunch — Boats & equipment provided — and best of all it’s FREE to attend!

Whether you are a young gal obsessed with fishing, or have never caught a fish, you won’t want to miss this fun event! Fishing for Life sponsors a series of Fishing Frenzy Events each summer. This one is located on Prior Lake in Prior Lake, MN.

Female volunteer fishing guides bring their boats to the lake and take the gals out on the water for a great morning of fishing action. Bait and loaner equipment are provided for those who don’t have their own. There is a great fishing pier and beach to enjoy at this location while you wait your turn for a boat.  We encourage adult/youth pairs (aunts, grandmas, moms, mentors, neighbors etc with a female youth) to participate together!

Women Hunting and Fishing will be mentoring and participating!  You MUST register so click this link for more information!
