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. We put the May-June issue of On Wisconsin Outdoors to bed last week with 100,000 copies being distributed statewide. Look for your copy at any Kwik Trip statewide…that’s 400 stores ...

    Once again Mother Nature has hit us with another major April snow storm impacting both fishing and hunting. The latest dumping dropped over 10 inches of wet heavy snow in the Central Wisconsin area creating quite a mess. On a positive note I recently picked up my new Crestliner boat from Amherst Marine and I absolutely love it. A huge thank you ...

    Last week Thursday and Friday fishing started to get really good.  Crappies turned on and anglers were doing very well.  The weekends weather pattern with high winds and cold, though, slowed fishing down a bit.  Though the forecast this week looks to get warmer and warmer which will turn the pan fishing on again.  Ice conditions...

    Warmer temperatures and easier travel (by foot) has brought more anglers out to do some late season ice fishing.  Snow pack has gone down on lakes, with the exception of southern shores where the sun doesn’t hit the snow to melt it down as fast.  There is still plenty of ice, reports vary from 20” to 25”+. ...

    Well things are turning around a little bit and we are finding a few locations to get on the ice.  With the recent warmer weather we have been seeing some of the ice is becoming accessible but it is sloppy. We also found some okay conditions further south in the state and we were able to get on some very good perch fishing.  Again acces...
