    Steve Suman By now, most (though not all!) have accepted the reality that winter has arrived and it appears to be in for the long haul. Snow and cold remain in the forecast, however a warm-up is in the works for the end of the week! “Snow continued to pile up, temperatures continued to drop, and open water fishing season ended,” says ...

    Steve Suman This week’s weather seems to slip and slide into a new season, with the “s” word used once or twice, and Saturday’s low in the teens. It was a great fall run! “Muskie anglers are on the water and the bigger fish are starting to feed,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “Best action is with sucker...

    John Luthens It was a rolling, late-autumn laboratory of trees and hills and sparkling rivers that stretched east of Mellen, Wisconsin and along the northern borders of Ashland and Iron Counties. An Indian-summer sun slanted through a maze of fallen leaves and logs. Along the banks of a winding stream small enough to leap over, balsam pines contes...

    By John Luthens It seems only an eye blink removed from the waist-deep snow of March on the banks of the Bois Brule River. I peered through snow-draped pines at the cold and ropy mist hanging over the water. I stood on ice shelves that hung suspended and frail over the stained depths of the river. The late-winter sun shone promise onto sand banks...

    We have had some great fall weather and some great area fishing to go with it.
