This event caught me by surprise until I saw the big ad in this week’s City Pages. Lake of the Torches Casino in Lac du Flambeau is hosting the Great Northwoods Fish Fry Fest on Friday and Saturday August 13 -14. Some of the events for this weekend include a fish fry cookoff, entertanment by the Bassmeister and grilling duo Mad dog and Merrill, and special appearance by Captain Sig Hansen of the Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch.
I absolutely love fish fry and if I didn’t have other plans for this weekend, I’d be all over this festival. Lac du Flambeau is about a 90 minute drive from wausau and just west of Minocqua. Deatails can be found at WIUPEvents and Lake of the Torches Casino.
