    Good Morning: This past weekend I was at the Madison Fishing Expo where I held my ‘Fishing Basics’ seminar twice on Saturday and Sunday.  During the seminars I educated around 250 youth and just over two hundred parents and adults.  I was amazed at how many adults came to the seminar without kids.  The seminar attendees ...

    Rain this past weekend followed by 7 inches of snow overnight (3/10/12) will make lake travel difficult on lakes with the slush that has worsened with last week’s warm weather and the weekend rain. Snowmobile highly recommended. Over the weekend bites have been slowing down and fish reports quite due to the incoming weather. Some die-hards fi...

    Crappie fishing has slowed but the Gill action has been great. We have been finding gills close to structure in 10 to 20 feet of water. Waxies or Spikes on small jigs have worked well. Walleye action is fair with most fish coming in the low light hours on shiners. Northern action is still great, Large Goldens on Tip-Ups are catching most of the p...

    I ran the last gasp of fuel from my ice fishing season, because like an ice-auger engine, that is what you do before you tuck it away for the season. My ice engine went out in a final roaring cloud of snow and ice.

    Recent snows have hampered travel on area lakes but if you can get out the fishing has been outstanding. The crappie bite remains the bet I have seen in years.  We are catching not only numbers of fish but really nice big slab crappies as well. Most of the fish we are finding are suspended 2 to 6 feet off the bottom over  20 feet of wate...
