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.

    Good walleye bite on the Wisconsin River right now with anglers picking up nice fish in 8 to 12 feet of water associated with current breaks and downed timber.

Bluegill fishing is improving daily.  The heavy spawn should happen within the...
