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.
