    November 7, 2016 Steve Suman   If you are taking great pride in consistently running an hour ahead of schedule... perhaps you forgot to turn back your clock Saturday night/Sunday morning!

    We just dropped the anchor and the current swung us around until the anchor finally held. The wind across the Mississippi River was gusting and the high water with resulting strong current tugged at our boat. We were in about sixteen feet of water.Bruce and his grandson, Jack baited their three way rigs, dropping them into the fast moving water. I ...

    The ‘river of presidents’ on the edge of November.  By John Luthens  Scant weeks before the presidential election and I was up to the waterline in a fine state of political current.

    What a change in weather this past week, and not for the better if you are an outdoorsmen.  At this time of the year, we as outdoorsmen are looking for cooler days and nights to not only bring down the water temperatures but to kick-star the fall rut.  Right now our water temperatures are holding right around the 50 degree mark but it doe...

    Darkness will be falling a little quicker starting this weekend with the end of daylight savings time and the clocks falling back an hour, but with temperatures the way they have been, there's still plenty of time to get outdoors this fall. While several rain cells moved across the state recently, trails in state parks and forests are in good shape...

    With the end of October, interest in fishing drops off.  Anglers are still in pursuit of Musky.   Some walleyes and a few crappie/perch fisherman can also be found.  With water temps a bit above average (reports of 47-53 degrees) there is still plenty of time to get out and pursue your favorite fish.Musky:  Very good. ...

    By John Luthens For my cousin, Bryce: We fight because we have been to the wild places. I fled towards Deadfall Bend with worry simmering on the backburner of my mind like a kettle of dark soup. In the beginning, the northern interstate sky was purest blue and the southern leaves of Wisconsin held tight to their color upon the trees, but the furt...

    It has been a very exciting week here in Central Wisconsin.  We have had outstanding walleye and crappie fishing, along with a very good perch bite.  In addition to the previously mentioned species the musky bite has really come into its own.  Water temperatures are holding steady in the lower to mid-fifties which has some good fish ...

    Steve Suman  Moderate fall weather continues in the North Woods, though with signs of moving to more seasonal aspects. This week looks to be a bit cooler and again (surprise!) includes chances for rain – with snow possible on the weekend. However, IF it occurs, Sunday’s high of 50 degrees should remove all evidence. Take advantage...

    10/27/16 - Reported by Jim Stroede Guide Service I've been fishing muskie exclusively here in the month of October.  The bite has been good to very good most days.  One thing that has been working well is dragging live suckers and casting big minnow baits. We are catching more fish deeper rather than shallow this week, see...

    Sun danced off the river and the bright fall colors on shore as I flipped my crankbait towards the rocky bank. I got the bait half way back to the boat when it jolted to a stop, feeling a fish pulling back. The fish tore off as my spinning rod was doubled over. Dark blue water, bright fall colors and a cloudless sky make for a good day of fishing ...

    Steve Suman   According to this week’s forecast, every day following Monday should be sunny and somewhat mild, though cooler than in recent weeks.
