Greg Geoffroy is organizing the annual Ames Anglers fishing trip to Chequamegon Bay/Ashland, WI. for trophy smallmouth and is scheduled for October 11-15, 2015. We will drive up on the 11th, enjoy 3 days of fishing and return on the 15th. If you think you might be interested in joining the group this year, please send an email to Greg at Please also feel free to spread the word to friends and other non-member anglers who might be interested in joining us. Greg will make hotel reservations and assemble the boat and room pairings once we know who is going this year, but if you have a preference, please indicate that in your email to Greg. This is always a fun trip!
