With Spring Turkey season just around the corner, Henry USA sent us a video now posted on our homepage that I know you’ll get a kick out of. 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 ...

    Attention Sturgeon Spearing Enthusiasts: Two of our fine DNR Fisheries Technicians were out checking water clarity today, and as we expected, conditions have improved since our last readings on January 9.  The specific results are shown below, but there appears to be 14-16 feet of visibility throughout most of Lake Winnebago.  Thes...

    After spending a long and futile day ice fishing on Pewaukee Lake recently, Rich Heitman and Tyler Kinziger moved to Moose Lake in Waukesha County and found more cooperative water.  They caught and released nine pike, including this fatty held by Heitman that measured in at exactly 30 inches.

    Uncle!!! We’ve had enough!  Another polar vortex, schools closed, temps 20 below, wind child to 50 below.  Hopefully Mother Nature will reward us with a nice February. When you could fish, catching wasn’t so bad.  Good reports from the less the average amount of anglers on the ice.  A few places seemed crowded if ac...

    By John Luthens Standing on the trestle bridge spanning the Milwaukee River in summer, I could look down at the island below the bridge and see the deep cuts of the river clearly.  Smallmouth bass fanned in the current and pike sulked along the weed lines.  In summer, the water below the bridge was a good five feet deep. There wa...

    Lots of snow in Central Wisconsin is making for difficult travel on area lakes.  But for the anglers still willing and able to get out the bite has been good for big walleyes, nice crappies, some dandy catfish, and a few nice perch and pike. The best action has been early and late in the day on all species except the pike which have b...

    FOX VALLEY, Wis. - Some very big fish - with the heft of heavy weight boxers - are cruising below the thick ice of Lake Winnebago as the 2014 sturgeon spearing season approaches. And this frigid winter, while it's been wreaking havoc on motorists and pedestrians, is setting the stage for what could be a record-busting year for spear fishermen. The...

    Steve Suman The Hayward area enjoyed another short-lived break from the extreme cold Sunday as temperatures neared 30 degrees. However, this week’s forecast predicts single digit highs and lows dropping to double-digit subzero some nights.

    By John Luthens Dennis said there was one in there. “One of the locals, but he’s hiding pretty deep.  Jump harder!”  Dennis was a big guy, and holding a double-barreled shotgun to boot; two good reasons to bear down as ordered.  It was a January morning in the fields of Wisconsin, and it was the first brush...

    A combination of moon phase and weather conditions made for some slow fishing again this week, Fish are still being caught but the bite is slow and light. Ice conditions are making it pretty tough to get around as well, with all the cold weather there is plenty of ice but there is also a lot of snow piled on it and the weight of the snow is...

    The area lakes are covered in snow. Deep snow to say the least. If you are venturing out off the beaten path, make sure to have a buddy on speed dial with a tow strap. Even full sized trucks are getting stuck with the depth of snow covering ice on the lakes. It seems like the fish are in the mid winter lull right now. They are able to be caught bu...

    With the more seasonal and consistent weather this past week, ice thickness has been holding in the 15” to 17” range on most lakes across the Northwoods.  However, there is about 8 to 12 inches of snow on top of the ice and this has made vehicle travel rather tough in undisturbed areas.  Most ice traffic is sticki...
