One of the many flyers I had picked up on my way to Lake Winnebago announced that the “Walleye Fest” would take place in Fond du Lac, a town at the southern most point of the lake on the upcoming weekend. Walleye is a fish which was on offer in fried form at the festival. Numerous food booths aside, there were live concerts, several sports competitions and, of course, a fishing competition...
