- Labor Day weekend brought in a lot of tourists to the Northwoods. Some spent their time shopping for accessories and clothes, but others shopped for fishing gear.
Customers at Eagle Sports in Eagle River shopped for the best bait so they could get back on the water. One person from out of town bought a fishing license before heading back home.
The Eagle Sports manager, Tod Tyler, says they've seen an increase in customers compared to last week.
"This is typically probably our third biggest weekend of the summer followed by 4th of July and Memorial Day are the two biggest," said Tyler. "This will be the third. It's the last busiest weekend we'll have this year."
The manager expects the customer incline to drop after Labor Day, but that won't keep his spirit down.
"We try and keep our local crowd happy, we look forward to the next hunting season and just keep rolling with the punches," Tyler said.
The manager believes bait, fishing gear and fishing licenses were his number one sellers this weekend.
