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."
