Club Meetings & Outings

We host top walleye personalities & tour professionals to speak at club meetings. Meetings are scheduled for the first Thursday of the month with the exception of a potential holiday conflict. Club socializing starts at 6:30 pm and the monthly presentation's start at 7:00 pm. We do not Meet in June, July or August. We also host club outings throughout the year to gather and have fun.

​TCWU is extremely excited to host Joel Nelson at our May 5th Club Meeting. Joel is an amazing angler, educator and speaker who will be tuning up our early season walleye skills by taking us through his Jig fishing master class.


Joel brings a lifetime of angling experience to share with us. His passion for the outdoors began at a young age playing in the creeks, catching chubs, suckers, crayfish and that occasional run in with a snapping turtle. These early experiences and memories were the fuel that began a continuing 22-year career as a professional angler and fishing educator. Joel also earned degrees in natural sciences and fisheries that led to geographic management position at the University of Minnesota.


Sharing his knowledge to help us all improve our angling skills is what gives Joel a strong sense of purpose. His passion is to give back what he has learned, innovated and been handed down from a lifetime of experiences to our current and future anglers.


We encourage you all to get fired up for the fishing opener by meeting Joel up close and personal.


Check out and follow Joel's social media to for continued education, how to videos, the latest outdoor news on equipment, lures, and fishing tips.
