BATTLE ON BAGO FISHING CANCELED
Battle on Bago Press Release:
Due to the unseasonably warm weather and uncertainty in ice conditions for next week, the Board of Directors for Battle on Bago have decided to cancel the fishing portion of the event for 2017. We understand that there are many fishermen that would safely navigate the ice on the Winnebago System next weekend; however, we have to take into account the number of participants who are unfamiliar with the rapidly changing ice conditions. Safety takes precedence in our event, and although the ice is never deemed 100% safe, we do understand what 7 days of warm weather will do to the landings and ice conditions.
We have enjoyed 9 straight years of a safe fishing event that has brought thousands of fisherman from around the country to Lake Winnebago and the Oshkosh Community. Battle on Bago wants to ensure the event continues to thrive for years to come and does not want the potential for negative publicity to overshadow what the event has done the previous 9 years.
