With Spring Turkey season just around the corner, Henry USA sent us a video now posted on our homepage that I know you’ll get a kick out of. The point is though, young hunters and smaller hunters won’t get a kick out of it at all. The wait for a gobbler can be too long to question whether or not you’re packing the right turkey load when he does show up (Dick Ellis Photo) Henry wanted to test the viability of their beautiful ...

    By John Luthens When you reach the Apostle Islands National Lake Shore, at the tip of the Bayfield County Peninsula, it is physically impossible to get any further north on the mainland of Wisconsin.  One would have to venture into the frigid and harrowing expanses of Lake Superior to do any better. Once in the lake, maybe from one of the so...

    Jim Hudson, Hudson's On the Spot Guide Service, 715-209-6431, hudson@fishchequamegonbay.com reports. We are on the ice! Yup, the big pond has finally frozen over and we are full steam ahead on the first ice bite of Chequamegon Bay. Brown Trout fishing has been pretty lights out right off the bat, as has the Whitefish. Throw in some bonus Walleye, ...

    January 4, 2013 Contact(s): Brad Eggold (414) 382-7921 MADISON – The percentage of chinook salmon stocked by the state headed to each Wisconsin port would remain generally the same for 2013 and the state will work with anglers to refine the fish distribution formula for 2014 and beyond, state fisheries officials say. That approach allows W...

    Jim Hudson, Hudson's On the Spot Guide Service, 715-209-6431hudson@fishchequamegonbay.com  We are still in the "making ice" stage here on Chequamegon Bay. Some parts, off Second Landing, have had ice a little longer, but nothing is fishable as of yet. Hoping that the temps stay below freezing and we can start putting some depth to the ice pac...

    By John Lindeman This year’s annual fishing trip targeting trophy walleyes cruising Little Bay de Noc in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula turned out to be a bit of history repeating itself. The usual suspects would definitely repeat themselves: rough water; big fish; cold weather; and good friends. We didn’t know it, but this years&rs...

    By Joel DeBoer The arrival of late autumn here in Wisconsin signifies many things, including the impending closure of musky season at the end of November. Late season musky angling is not for the faint of heart as the weather can be downright nasty, the windows of fish activity are some of the shortest of the year, and the potential to tangle with...

    By John Luthens When the October winds take a sharp turn out of the northwest, and Lake Michigan starts whipping itself into a white capped frenzy, it only makes sense to head for a harbor. The salmon run into there every year. They sense it, and it seemed to make sense to me too, although I wasn’t heading to a safe port from the lake. ...

    By John Luthens There are tales of extreme fishermen who cut a ballistic swath through a body of water, wading and trolling, and leaving rippling wakes of caught fish behind.  Their fishing logs display such eye-popping scores of hook-ups, that a master accountant would be hard pressed to juggle the numbers into the realm of believability. H...

No need for Grandma to meet us half-way. No need to bother my wife with hectic packi...
