    By John Luthens On a blustery September morning, north of Clam Falls, Wisconsin and south of nowhere in the year of our Lord 2012 – I waded into the swirling magic of Ding Dong Creek and severed my connection to the modern world.  My friends and family swear that it has turned me into a crazed hermit, but I’ve been stoically liv...

    If you were able to get out on the water, anglers saw relatively good fishing this week.  Fall winds made some of the days this week pretty tough for any kind of boat control.             Small mouth bass are again moving back into the shallows.  They are positioned on the main lake ...
