Now it starts.  Too much to keep up with in Wisconsin, and that is one nice problem for an outdoorsman. OWO Columnist Wayne Morgenthaler and his son Neal spelled double trouble for two Richland County gobblers after four days of not filling tags. We put the May-June issue of On Wisconsin Outdoors to bed last week with 100,000 copies being distributed statewide. Look for your copy at any Kwik Trip statewide…that’s 400 stores ...

    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. ...

    Jim Hudson, Hudson's On the Spot Guide Service, 715-209-6431, hudson@fishchequamegonbay.com reports: Fishing in front of the river mouths will start to heat up now.

    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...

Now, the ext...

    By John Luthens I had a day coming all to myself in northwestern Wisconsin, the small town of Brule to be exact.  My daughter wanted to spend a week with Grandma, and I heroically volunteered to drive her up.  I could easily squeeze a day in to do that. No need for Grandma to meet us half-way. No need to bother my wife with hectic packi...

    Day 8 and Day 9 Results — July 28-29, 2012 A breezy weekend made for a bumpy ride at times. There was a strong north current, swells and chop Saturday and a switch to the same from the south Sunday. That made finding the right speed challenging, but those who figured it out scored some nice catches. Some stuck in the 90- to 120-foot depths, ...

    Day 7 Results — Friday, July 27, 2012 A rough day wave-wise Friday kept fishing pressure down in many areas, and it showed in the weigh-ins. With fewer fishermen on the water, there were just three changes in the top 30. The day’s largest “king” went 19.6 pounds. Fish registration ends at 5 p.m. Sunday. Anglers can still g...

    Day 6 Results — Thursday, July 26, 2012 Two-thirds of the way through the 30th annual K/D Salmon Tournament — the largest summer salmon fishing contest in the Great Lakes — it appears there’s been some big fish movement into the waters most anglers have been trolling. Four new top 10 fish were recorded, including trophy chi...

    Day 5 Results — Wednesday, July 25, 2012 Second straight day without a 20-pounder coming to certified scales, but Day 5 of the 30th annual K/D Salmon Tournament — a day marred by strong southeast winds that kept boaters on shore in many areas — did see a pair of Washington Island fish move into the top 20. With more than $40,000...

    Day 4 Results — Tuesday, July 24, 2012 No 20-pounders were brought to the scales on Tuesday, Day 4 of the K/D Salmon Tournament, but there were four 19-pound-plus specimens. Deb Samuelson’s 19.63-pounder at Algoma was big enough to move into 12th spot. A small craft advisory was in the forecast for Wednesday. After that, outside of an...
