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.

    After a week of watching the fishing plummet right along with the air temperature (20 below on Valentine’s Day) some fresh reports from Monday(2/15) are going to help add a little better outlook on this week’s report.  The sub-zero temps and winds kept most anglers looking for other things to do this past weekend.  Those ...

    Ice conditions in Central Wisconsin are very good with an average of 14 to 18 inches of good solid ice on most lakes with little snow cover making travel and access very good.  Further north we are encountering lakes with lots of snow cover and several inches of deep slush making for difficult travel conditions.   The fishing has been g...

    By John Luthens  I rolled into the Wendt’s marina sturgeon registration station in Van Dyne, Wisconsin on the western shore of Lake Winnebago, tentatively poking my head out of the truck to test the weather. The zero-degree marker of the Fahrenheit scale seemed to be the center of an election year struggle. The sun voted in favor of an ...

    Steve Suman More “winter-like” weather returns to the Hayward area this week when we get the full mix of snow, wind and subzero low temperatures.

    Once again our area missed the heavy snow that was predicted, a narrow band of only 4-5” when both east and west of our area got 9-10” last Tuesday. Also the snow was light and dry. High winds pushed most of it off the lakes, maintaining good travel for A.T.V’s as well as snowmobiles and some truck travel where ice thickness allow...

    A second weekend in a row of fishing success not meeting the expectations of us anglers, what with all the great weather we had.
