    March 4, 2014 DNR seeks feedback on expanding trout seasonsMADISON – Moving the start of the early trout season to January 1 and expanding the early season to all inland waters to provide more fishing opportunities are among the options Wisconsin anglers can weigh in on during the 2014 Spring Fish and Wildlife Hearings held Ap...

    I admit it.  The unusual weather this year has driven me to seek warmer climes.  I debunked from Wisconsin and headed to Florida.  While the Midwest is gripped in brutal sub-zero wind chills and piles of snow, I’ve been enjoying mild temps and sunshine!  On one of my adventures here I spent an afternoon walking along one...

    By Dick Henske Being an old “cogger” I try to get to this area each winter.  The Forgotten Coast runs from east of Panama City through Mexico Beach, Port St. Joe, Apalachicola, St. George Island, to Alligator Point. This area is the Panhandle of Florida; not as warm and not as developed as the lower part of the state.  What ...

     It happens about this time every year.  I graciously offer to do the grocery shopping and my wife suspiciously turns down the offer.  She knows something is up.  She knows I grumble even taking out the garbage and she knows the family can’t live on potato chips and Slim Jims for a week.  “By all means,...

    Great action this past week as we come to the close of the 2013-2014 inland game fish season.  Good thing for us is that the waters we fish are basically never closed as they are almost all associated with or on the Wisconsin River. Walleye action has been very good for both numbers and size along with good catches of crappies, bluegi...

      It may not feel like it, but spring is just around the corner when many animals start their annual spawning rituals. Fish are no exception. In fact, many species undergo surprisingly long and complex migrations, often for spawning, but also for other purposes. Spring is the best time of the year to get outdoors and see a variety o...

    And we thought it couldn't get any worse.... Last weeks two days above freezing was followed by nearly a foot of new snow, making access on most lakes next to impossible. Trucks, snowmobiles, even Rangers & Quads with tracks are having trouble getting stuck. Conditions have been bad enough to keep most lakes angler free. A few with fishing not ...

    Steve Suman Participants in the 41st annual Birkebeiner this past weekend found no shortage of cold or snow for their event. A major winter storm late Thursday afternoon through Friday morning dropped more than 18 inches of snow in some areas, blown by 40 mph winds. It did not stop the Birkie, but it did not help the already poor conditions for ic...

    Outstanding action for GIANT PIKE in the Central Wisconsin area.  Big pike well over 30 inches and even some over 40 inches have been the norm the past few weeks.  These are big fish that want a big bait,  XL-shiners and good sized suckers have been the bait of choice fished off tip-ups set along shallow weed edges ...

    Finally a break in the weather.  Not great, but, by this winters standard, a nice weekend to be out.  The east winds didn’t help much for the fish, nor did the high pressure system.  That has all given way to a new batch of snow on Monday that will only add to the travel problems. Pike:  Good.  Action, as well as par...

    Steve Suman We have plenty of snow and more on the way, but the coming week’s forecast is for warmer and windy, though with a return to the cold temperatures next weekend.

    Fishing has continued to stay somewhat slow overall. Fish are being caught, but you're working for each and every one of them. Warmer temperatures are forecasted, and I'm hoping things will turn around and start a steady bite again. Things will only go up from here.  When it comes to catching crappies and walleyes, one typically targets them ...
