    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...

    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...

    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, &...
