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 ...

    Holy smokes was it ever a great week to be out on the ice.  The flags were flying and the fish were going crazy.  We had one of the best weeks I can possibly remember. The northern pike bite was just crazy this past week, with not only numbers but some big fish too.  Most of the action came on tip-ups baited up with large golden s...

    A February record temperature for Saturday (52 degrees) unfortunately did not set any records for fish catching. As been the case on most of our nicer weekends, great weather did not equate to great fishing. Maybe it was the number of anglers, maybe the high barometer at times. While certain lakes produced well, others that had been imp...

    February 22, 2016 Steve Suman The weekend’s mild, wet weather was far from perfect for Birkie skiers, snowmobilers, and ice anglers, but all went forward and (most) enjoyed a good time following their favorite pursuits. This week, nights turn colder with temperatures in the teens (that should firm up things!), highs fluctuate from teens to ...

    Finally something to write a report about! Fishing picked up across the board over the weekend, with Saturdays west winds and above freezing temps bringing the best of the weeks fishing.

    While many regions of the state were just finishing shoveling after this past week's snowfall, this weekend promises significantly warmer temperatures across the state with a high chance of snowmelt especially in the south. That being said, some area lakes in the Northwoods are holding on 10 to 12 inches of ice, with a thin and more brittle layer o...
