To the editor:
I was driving from Wichita to the Twin Cities to watch the Green Bay Packers/Minnesota Vikings game when I stopped for fuel at Mason City, Iowa. While I was fueling, a man came out of the convenience store and started walking toward my car. He said that he noticed that I had a personalized car tag from Kansas that says Oconto.
"Are you originally from Oconto, Wisconsin?" he inquired.
"A long time ago," I replied.
He then told me excitedly that he and his father and brother went to Oconto this year to fish Walleye.
Well, there you have it. The Walleye Tournament on TV inspired some guys all the way from Iowa to travel to Oconto.
Full speed ahead on the Oconto fishing tournaments! It is working.
