    By Darrell Pendergrass My wife and I share a closet, she keeps her stuff on the left side and I keep mine on the right. It’s a fairly simple rule. On occasion Queenie will purchase a new shirt or sweater for me and hang it on my side; that’s how I know I have something new to wear. It’s hanging on my side. OK, one day some month...

    By Darrell Pendergrass The problem with warm weather at any point in the winter is that immediately my thoughts turn to the Brule River and fishing for steelhead trout, which is strictly not a winter sport. Not for me. I guess it’s the smell of spring that comes with the warm temperatures that does it. It’s the feel of April.  It...

    Ice conditions on our area lakes took a turn for the worse this past weekend as warm moist air caused the ice to soften. The colder air expected this week should tighten things up but anglers should proceed with extreme caution and check ice thickness frequently with an ice spud. With the soft conditions even three inches may not be enough. Make su...

    By John Luthens According to the Mayan calendar the end of the world is coming on Dec. 21. I couldn’t care less. I’ve already been through it. Resting on my desk this very moment, among other odds-and-ends that I should throw away, is a folded newspaper clipping to prove it. A failed prophecy and a cluttered desk. There’s eno...

    By Mike Yurk The Finkel Files  One of the most famous battles from our country’s long military history is the Battle of Little Big Horn, also known as Custer’s Last Stand. Everyone knows the story. On June 25, 1876, Lt. Col. George Custer led five companies of cavalry into the Little Big Horn to attack a large Indian camp of Lak...

    Well, we didn’t gain any ice this week.  The rain took some of the ice away.  The narrows on Red Cedar Lake have opened up again.  I took a drive to several local lakes with bays that should have some ice.  Most of the lakes had no fishermen, but some had tracks where anglers had tested the ice.  These tracks were f...

    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 Luthens I’d driven past the road sign off of Interstate 41 hundreds of times. “Lost Arrow Road,” reads the sign, standing just south of Fond du Lac, down a sloping grade of asphalt and past the two wind turbine towers that have stood as monuments for as long as I can remember. The two towers may have even spawned the spr...

    Well, some of the small lakes and some bays have safe ice.  Be sure to keep checking the thickness as you go out to your favorite spot.  A good solid 4 inches will support one man and 6-8” will support a man and an ATV.  Remember to bring a rope—you could save a friend.  Be sure to go with a buddy and bring a cell ...

    By Professional Guide Joe Brezinski Many of our area lakes opened back up this week due to the warm weather the past weekend. Some of the small lakes remained frozen but anyone trying to venture out should proceed with extreme caution. Some shallow areas may experience 3 inches of ice only to reduce to an inch a couple feet away. Air temps should ...

    Not much for ice yet.  There were reports of some fishermen out on Turtle Lake and Prairie Lake.  They are jumping the gun.  I’m as anxious as anyone to get out there ice fishing, but this week’s warm weather and rain haven’t helped the ice form and safety is a real concern. It’s best to hold off and get yo...

    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...

    With the warm temperatures we had this past week we are advising anglers to stay off area ice and wait for cooler temperatures and more solid ice.  Right now in Central Wisconsin we have from 1 1/2 inches to 2 1/2 inches of ice and that will more than likely diminish before it gets better if the weather continues to stay the way it is.  W...

    The ice fishing season has started in the Phillips WI area with 2 to 3 inches of ice covering most of the lakes shorelines. I would not recommend venturing far on the ice yet but fishermen are going out on the shallower shorelines and setting tip-ups for Walleye and Pike. The bite has been good so far. Most fishermen are reporting picking up a few ...

    Muskie anglers are receiving a little bonus time as the warm air temps have kept our area lakes open. Remember the water temps are extremely cold so your presentations need to be super slow. Some anglers have decided to troll since it was difficult to keep rod guides from freezing. They have had mixed success using the 13" jake baits and trolled at...

    Another firearms season is come and gone in Wisconsin and this one seems to be one to remember as the Rut was in full swing for the hunters.
