On Wisconsin Outdoors saved 2000 papers from our 100,000 January/February press run specifically to give us an excuse to tour the Winnebago system and drop papers at registration stations, restaurants and taverns as spearers and onlookers celebrated day 2 of the season. If you have not participated in this great event one way or another, I highly recommend you jump in soon.  Besides, what more romantic way to celebrate Valentine’s Day ...

    Well it's getting to be that time of the year already, with the sturgeonspearing season only 2.5 weeks away.  While at a Sturgeon for Tomorrowbanquet last Saturday, I was talking to some spearers about water clarity.For the most part their reports were very similar to what I have beenhearing most of the winter in that the water is very di...

    Following two consecutive very cold weekends, this past weekend was a nice change weather wise.  Unfortunately the fishing wasn’t as great as the weather for a lot of anglers.  Initial reports were slow, though as the weekend progressed into Monday, better reports came in from anglers who didn’t give up. Crappies:  ...

    By John Luthens I was forty feet above Sauk Creek, on the fringes of Port Washington, Wisconsin. It was shaping up to be a perfect, January stalk. The rocky banks were snow covered and the water swirled through ice flows below. The only tracks winding to the water below were made by deer and coyotes. I was working above a deep pool that I hoped mi...

    Steve Suman The Hayward forecast shows moderate temperatures this week, with highs and lows primarily in the 20s and 30s. The trade-off is a chance of snow every day, though so far not much for accumulation. We have plenty of good ice and decent snow cover, so all winter recreation is a “go” at this time. “Severe cold the past c...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The ice is a lot safer now with the cold weather.  The ice fishing on the backwaters of the Wisconsin River for pan fish has been slow.  The bite has been early in the morning and only a couple of feet below the ice.  Now that the water temperature is changing the fish should be more towards the bottom.  T...

    Well we are finally seeing some safe ice on most of our area lakes and guys are getting out to their favorite hot spots. That doesn’t mean it’s safe everywhere but there is a few good locations for anglers to head out.  Always use caution when heading out on the ice. The bite has been very good for all species of panfish as well...

    Steve Suman For people who wondered if winter weather would ever arrive this year – it is here! The sub-zero lows forecast for this week, combined with (at this time) no “major” snow events, should build good ice on the lakes and freeze the swamps so snowmobile trail crews can stake the entire system. Conditions should then be ex...
