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 ...

    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...

    Two days in a row of rain has just about melted out most fishable ice. Another shot of rain / snow on Wed. should do in any thoughts of being on the ice till lateThursday. 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...

    Steve Suman The forecast for this week includes mentions of snow nearly every day and temperatures ranging from highs in the upper 30s to lows eventually pushing single digits. That said, the forecasts seem to change on nearly an hourly basis! It appears, for this week anyway, it might be a good idea to keep at hand a mix of clothing types to cov...

    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...

    Steve Suman The unusually mild December weather persists in the North Woods, with highs in the 40s and lows in the low 30s this week, and a few chances of snow. A look at the extended forecast shows temperatures in a slow decline throughout the remainder of the month. If any undone, pre-winter outdoor projects remain, you might want to tackle them...

    Well this warm weather certainly isn’t helping the ice fishermen any.  And as a matter of fact it didn’t do much good for the deer hunters the past few weeks either. With warmer than normal temperatures in our area right now ice fishermen are on a stand-by until things cool down and we get a good freeze-up.  Ice starting form...

    Finally enough cold to give ice anglers a preview of the coming ice fishing season. Not sure how long this will last, not a lot of real cold in the forecast, but for now most lakes are ice covered and some fishable with measurements of 3-4” available. Early reports of good Walleye and Crappie fishing from anglers able / willing to go out and...

    Steve Suman This week is starting out with snow and cold Monday through Tuesday, but the forecast promises sunshine and highs in the mid to upper 30s through next weekend. The weather is not typical for this time of year -- which thrills some and disappoints others. “Ice is forming fast now,” says guide Steve Genson at Hayward Bait, &...

    Its gun deer season, so little going on over the water, but a few diehards still venturing out. Muskie: Good. Fewer anglers and a little less action, but fish still being caught – mostly on suckers. Last day to fish Musky is Nov 30th, so some time left. Crappies: Good. Gets the nod over Walleyes as good numbers and big fish (14 plus inches)...

    Windy weather and almost steady rain has kept us from fishing and hunting as much as we would have liked to this past week, but we did manage to get out and enjoy some time both in the woods and on the water.  Water temperatures are in the low 40’s but with the forecasted weekend temperatures dipping down into the low teens, don’...

    Steve Suman The forecast for this week leading into the opening of gun deer season shows mild temperatures and some precipitation through Wednesday. Then ... the temperatures take a major drop from highs in the 50s to highs in the low 30s, with chances for snow showers Thursday and Friday. Looks to be clear and sunny for opening weekend, however! ...
