    Caution is the best way to describe conditions in the Lakeland area, Still! Here it is the 5th of January and some lakes in the area are not completely iced over. Walking is the ONLY way to go, and even then- spud your way to make sure. In some instances, certain lakes look ( due to snow cover) and start out safe (3-8”) but there may be...

    By John Luthens The sun broke the horizon to reveal a winter wonderland in southern Bayfield County. The landscape was blinding white and the jack pines and burr oaks were capped to the gills in snow. It was the first day of Wisconsin’s catch-and-release trout season and it was uncharted territory. If I’d calculated my history correctl...

    Steve Suman We have snow on the ground and more on the way tonight, with the forecast predicting up to eight inches or more for the Hayward area – and a few more to top it off tomorrow. Snowmobilers and cross-country skiers can start enjoying their favorite activities, but the snow accumulating on the ‘iffy’ ice will not be of he...

    Merry Christmas everyone…….

    These reports are hard to write when given the conditions we have here. Just enough (3-5”) ice to get out on in some areas, while most lakes remain open. Our one chance of real ice making cold (6 degrees on 12-19) was mixed with just enough wind to keep new ice from forming. Places that did have ice made more, but most lakes don’t have ...

    John Luthens When I was young, my parents would pile me and my brother into the car and drive into the northern forests of Barron County to pick pine boughs for making Christmas wreaths. It was a seasonal ritual, running wild and free in the woods. The forest that we haunted stretched along a river bottom. There were stands of balsam to become los...

    This past week has seen some drastic changes.  We started the week out with just enough ice to allow for some foot travel and then bam it was gone. Warm temperatures and rain quickly diminished any future hopes of getting out ice fishing.  With that happening I decided to pull the boat out of storage and head back out on the river. Wow wh...

By then, lows in the teens, followed by highs in the teens Friday, should give us some new ice to work with. Due to present conditions, keep an eye on our shop web sit...

    Mother Nature is not being kind to us ice anglers. She’s being a big tease. Some small lakes and bays have just enough ice (3-4”) to lure a few adventurous anglers out. Other lakes, due to highs in the upper 30’s to 40 degrees have become just iffy enough to keep anglers off. Several large / deep lakes are still open. Yellow Perc...
