Please see maps on Facebook Attention NAIFC Anglers: The Thaines River (Isle Bay Public Access next to McQuoid's) is closed for the season. Warm weather and current have created unsafe ice conditions. A team put a snowmobile through this morning. Isle Bay will have to be accessed through Chapman's Resort during the pre-fishing days. McQuoid's has paid for access for all teams to use the Father Hennepin State Park access Sunday for the tournament. Do not attempt to travel between Wahkon and Isle Bays. Due to thin ice in the narrows between the islands and a large crack there is not safe travel between the bays. Whakon Bay can be accessed through Wahkon City Park, downtown Wahkon. Parking available behind the Wahkon Inn.

The 2016 NAIFC Championship Mandatory Rules Meeting will be held in Isle on the evening of Friday March 10th, 2017 at the McQuoid’s Inn Resort Hotel.  The 2016 NAIFC Championship is a two-day event, March 11th and March 12th, total-weight tournament.  Hours of competition on both days will be between 8:00 am - 2:00 pm.  Tournament area: Day One will be conducted on Mille Lacs Lake in Waukon Bay.  Day Two will be conducted on Mille Lacs Lake in Isle Bay.  The targeted species and number of said species per day will be any combination of 16: Perch, Crappies and/or Blue Gills. 

Weed beds have been monitored and as of this writing local guides report the best weed beds in years.


The launch for Waukon Bay has been arranged to be in Waukon, thereby eliminating the drive across the ice from Isle Bay.


The 16 fish - any combination - allows the utmost in team opportunities as well as insuring greater flexibility   concerning travel, ice conditions and status of the fishery, while producing a more level playing field for all.
