With Spring Turkey season just around the corner, Henry USA sent us a video now posted on our homepage that I know you’ll get a kick out of. The point is though, young hunters and smaller hunters won’t get a kick out of it at all. The wait for a gobbler can be too long to question whether or not you’re packing the right turkey load when he does show up (Dick Ellis Photo) Henry wanted to test the viability of their beautiful ...

    The 1998 was a truly unique season.  For starters, there was great concern about ice conditions leading up to the season.  From some of the other newspaper articles that I’ve read, it appears there was even outside pressure to cancel the season.  The 2018 spearing season marks the 11th season that I have worked for the DNR...

    Today we highlight the season of 40 years ago (1978).  For starters, the 1978 season only included a fishery on Lake Winnebago.  Water clarity coming into the season was good (average 14’ of clarity) and ice conditions allowed for safe travel. Thus, spearers were anxiously awaiting the season getting started. However, the largest sn...

    Winnebago System Sturgeon Spearers: We are now half way through the 2018 sturgeon spearing season on Lake Winnebago.  We have been hearing reports for the last few days that the water has gradually been clearing and there must be some truth to that given the harvest over the last two days.  The 119 fish registered the past two days (51 y...

    Attention Winnebago System Sturgeon Spearing Enthusiasts: Today’s harvest from Lake Winnebago included 33 fish.  The south end continues to produce the best with Wendt’s (11 fish), Calumet Harbor (8 fish), and Jerry’s Bar (6) registering the most fish.  The north shore stations have been very slow with Waverly Beach, St...

    It has been another fantastic week here in Central Wisconsin. The fishing has been very good for all species with panfish taking the top spot again for consistent action. Walleye and pike have been fairly active with some pretty decent ones being caught. Most of the panfish are being caught by jigging in shallow water with tear-drop style jigs.&nbs...

    Attention Winnebago System Sturgeon Spearing Enthusiasts: The big question coming into today was how long the spear fishery on the Upriver Lakes would last.  We were only 2 adult females away from the 90% trigger and 11 adult females from the 100% season closure.  Well it literally came down to the wire.  At 1:50, we were still...
