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 ...

    As I begin the first report of 2017 let me wish everyone a Happy New Year. Our 2017 ice fishing season has started off just like many fireworks, with a boom.  Walleye fishing is off the grid followed by great crappie, perch, bluegill, and pike fishing.  Ice conditions across central Wisconsin are getting better by the day. Most area lake...

    Ice conditions in central Wisconsin are about as perfect as one could want.  Contrary to popular belief the rain last weekend did more good for ice fishing than bad. The rain knocked down the snow and slush on top of the ice allowing it to freeze solidly the following couple of days.  We now have an average of 4 to 8 inches of good solid ...

    During the 1950’s and 1960’s in Franklin, Wisconsin, growing up next to a river, made this young boy’s life just a whole lot better. Today, by definition, technically, it should be labeled a stream. The other boys in the neighborhood and I never called it a river or a stream. To us, it was the creek.  Now, that word might loo...

    December 19, 2016 Steve Suman  This week’s forecast mentions snow on a few days – as well as chances for a winter storm that could affect Christmas weekend – but the temperatures should be MUCH milder than in the past week (so they say), though with strong winds.

    Ice fishing season is here. With the recent cold snap area lakes and backwater locations off the river system have been forming ice.  A lot of locations have anywhere from 3 to 5 inches of good ice with some snow cover for good traction and walking.  We have been out catching walleyes, pike and panfish. The walleye bite has primarily b...
