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 ...

    Because of our harsh winter here in the northland, the ice has not yet broken up on Chequamegon Bay so the smelt have not started spawning. The “smelt run” usually starts around the third week in April shortly after ice-out on the bay and lasts only 12-14 days. Visitors and locals alike love the short but sweet smelt season on ...

    Gary Engberg Outdoors The spring walleye fishing on the Wisconsin River from the Prairie du Sac Dam and downriver toward the Mississippi River has been slow, but it should pick up as the water warms.

    I was watching Paul as I moved the boat with the trolling motor into the current. Suddenly he jumped up from his seat. His spinning rod was bent in half with the rod tip plunging. I reeled in my line waiting to see what he had. The fish made a short run and Paul turned it and started getting it closer to the boat.   Finally we saw i...

    Cheering on the regatta. By John Luthens The tradition started long ago.  My brother and I whittled our boats and kept our senses tuned to the weather.  We watched the last snow bank melt; we listened for the sump pump in the basement to start running and scented the spring breeze for the wet and rich earth smells.  Finally, when...

    Action is heating up on the local river system with abundant walleyes being taken by area anglers.

    Finally some relief from the cold! By weeks end, we saw temps soaring from morning lows of 10 below early in the week to highs of mid 50's by Sunday. Unfortunately the warm temps did make things very messy by Sunday. The amount of snow still on the ice turned very slushy, limiting most traffic to foot or snowmobile. As the snow/slush continues to c...
