Presidents Message 1-28-2024

Hello Everyone,

What a winter, not normal that’s for sure.

This coming May, for the fishing opener on May 4th, Wisconsin

Governor Tony Evers will be fishing Yellow Lake. A lot of planning

committees are working hard for this event.

What I’m asking from the YLRA members is for some volunteers. There

is a need for boats and pontoons for the media people, and others that

come with Governor Evers. Anyone who volunteers their boat/pontoon

and themselves will receive the VIP treatment.

A VIP will attend a dinner on Friday May 3rd in Siren to meet the people

that will be on their boat/pontoon, a breakfast at Yellow Lake, and

lunch in Siren on Saturday May 4th.

You will need to fill out an application, which I will provide to you. On

that you can select how many people your boat/pontoon can

accommodate, and whether you want to take them fishing or show

them Yellow Lake.

You can contact me, Jim Buhil, via e-mail at I will reach

out to you and answer any questions you may have. Six board members

have volunteered to be a host. The exact number of boats/pontoons

needed has not been confirmed yet. I have volunteered, I would like to

see some members come and join me for this event.

There will be a need for other volunteers. I will address that when the

committees know what their needs are.

Thank you very much. Think it over and let me know if you can help.

Jim Buhil

YLRA President
