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 ...

    This past week central Wisconsin was pounded with wet heavy snow, and with that said travel conditions on area lakes has become extremely tough.  Blowing and drifting snow has caused hard packed drifts on the lakes creating havoc for anglers. With our last reading showing 8 to 10 inches of ice in many areas we are advising foot travel or snowm...

    January 9, 2017 Steve Suman Snow continues to fall in the North Woods, though not in huge quantities.

    Severe cold kept all but the hardiest (most foolish?) of anglers off the ice this past week.  Nighttime lows in the minus teens to twenties hurt participation for now.  Building ice though will help anglers from here on out.Along with the cold, high pressure hung over the area, compounding what was already tough fishing conditions.Yellow ...

    As I begin the first report of 2017 let me wish everyone a Happy New Year. Our 2017 ice fishing season has started off just like many fireworks, with a boom.  Walleye fishing is off the grid followed by great crappie, perch, bluegill, and pike fishing.  Ice conditions across central Wisconsin are getting better by the day. Most area lake...

    By John Luthens Native Americans burned ceremonial fires, dancing in forgotten places to dispel the past and welcome in the future. Many of Finnish descent prefer to sit in a wood burning smoke sauna, sweating the demons out and letting them curl into the wind.

    Ice conditions in central Wisconsin are about as perfect as one could want.  Contrary to popular belief the rain last weekend did more good for ice fishing than bad. The rain knocked down the snow and slush on top of the ice allowing it to freeze solidly the following couple of days.  We now have an average of 4 to 8 inches of good solid ...

    December 19, 2016 Steve Suman  This week’s forecast mentions snow on a few days – as well as chances for a winter storm that could affect Christmas weekend – but the temperatures should be MUCH milder than in the past week (so they say), though with strong winds. The recent snow and cold set the mood for winter recreation, ...

    Ice fishing season is here. With the recent cold snap area lakes and backwater locations off the river system have been forming ice.  A lot of locations have anywhere from 3 to 5 inches of good ice with some snow cover for good traction and walking.  We have been out catching walleyes, pike and panfish. The walleye bite has primarily b...
