The Nisswa Chamber of Commerce has had a tradition of nearly 60 years to deliver coffee and doughnuts to anglers on Gull Lake on the walleye and northern pike fishing opener each spring.

This year’s Welcome Wannigan was a week late because parts of Gull Lake were still ice-covered on the fishing opener weekend.

Saturday, May 18, was rainy and foggy, but the Wannigan crew, piloted by Jay Chaney of Boats & Beyond, delivered coffee and doughnuts courtesy of Stonehouse Coffee to those anglers who were out.
