With the results of the November 3 election still to be determined it’s very important that we all look very closely at things that occurred prior to, and on Election Day.The Democrat led Wisconsin Election Commission, chaired by Ann Jacobs, ignored court orders to remove 209,000 names from Wisconsin voter rolls, and on January 13 of this year it was held in contempt by Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Paul Malloy. Those names were on the voter...

    A very warm week of weather, air temps touching 80 degrees, has lake and flowage surface temps in the upper 60’s to 70+ degrees on some lakes.  It has changed patterns noticeably on some waters, throwing a monkey wrench into what has already been a very “off” early fall season.

    He swung the hook on which the two worms curled, dropping it gently to let the current take the line and baited hook beneath the bank. There was a heavy wildness of movement in the narrow, deep current, and the trout was torn out of the water…flopping in the air…sailing over Nick’s shoulder and tumbling into the ferns on the ban...

    By John Luthens The start of school lurked on the far edge of summer like a hungry beast. It had been nothing but a gentle puppy in June, but now, there it was: wildly grown in only three short months, yellow eyes glowing like a school bus with a fresh haircut on its shaggy mane and a backpack full of books between its meaty paws.

    After the past few weeks of rather slow fishing, the overall bite on Delavan is starting to improve.  Most of the anglers are having success for most species, with the exception being Walleye which are still tough to find.  The boat traffic will remain heavy through Labor Day and then we typically see a drop off on week days.   ...

The walleye bi...

                Fishing on Lake Geneva has been really inconsistent for the past few days.  The cooler temps have affected the deep water bite for bass.  There is hot weather predicted in the coming days so that bite should become better in the week to come.  As Labor Day is fast approaching, I expect some o...

    The boat sat on top of a mass of weeds. In front of us was a strip of open water which overflowed the banks of this small lake, flooding the brush. My grandson, Max flipped a plastic worm into the small ribbon of open water. As his bait sunk the line twitched and Max pulled back to set the hook. The water exploded and then the fish dove for ...
