Still, accumulations will build if colder temperatures hold – more is on the way mid-week – but the forecast is for mid-20s on Sunday. “The ice is not yet safe enough for vehicles,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “but pe...

    By John Luthens Native Americans burned ceremonial fires, dancing in forgotten places to dispel the past and welcome in the future. Many of Finnish descent prefer to sit in a wood burning smoke sauna, sweating the demons out and letting them curl into the wind. Call it superstition, call it mumbo jumbo, but I have come to believe there are healing...

    As I begin the first report of 2017 let me wish everyone a Happy New Year.

    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...

    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...
