Nisswa Chamber's Welcome Wannigan to be on Gull

The 2018 Welcome Wannigan on Gull Lake.

This Nisswa Chamber will once again greet anglers on Gull Lake for the fishing opener on Saturday, May 11 - rain, shine or snow - as part of the 60th Welcome Wannigan.

The welcoming committee will launch from the docks of Bar Harbor at 8 a.m. to venture out onto the open water, serving hot coffee and doughnuts to those trying to hook the big one.

"Wannigan" is a noun meaning: "a box, usually made of wood, used to store food on canoe or sledding trips."
