Josh Hoier, 8 of New London poses for Wolf River expert John Faucher with his catch of beautiful walleyes. I took my own blog advice Tuesday.  The wolf River and friend John Faucher called me north from southeast Wisconsin to New London to check out the walleye run for myself.  Faucher is owner of Johnny’s Little Shop of Bait. He keeps close tabs on the river runs of walleyes and white bass; the comings and goings so to speak o...

    Reading your own geriatric meter Denny Murawska Had there been someone present with a camera during my most recent outdoor outing, I am certain the segment would have gone viral on YouTube. It had nothing to do with a vicious battle against a musky. I did not single-handedly go head-to-head with a large boar armed only with a Bowie knife. No, I f...

    By Dick Ellis With a subtle twist of the paddle, Arnold Groehler manipulates the small skiff to move from a straight track on the Horicon marsh channel to another muskrat trap tucked in near the entrance of a cattail hut.  A sea of cattails stretches in every direction on the national wildlife refuge, pocketed in the distance by hardwood isla...

    By Dick Ellis Ellis Note.  This story took place in late June of 2005.  Like all “Dick’s Trips”, make sure to check current regulations for changes when planning the journey yourself. Three hours and one 10-inch smallmouth into a planned walleye hunt, John Volkman and I floated on a dead-still Winnebago and debated the...

    Editor’s Note: This story on shore fishing took place in May of 2009 on Delavan Lake in southeast Wisconsin. Check regulations for possible bag changes, etc. when taking these trips yourself. I can’t locate the photos for this story for some reason but will post as soon as I do. Sorry.  Dick The No-boat blues quickly turned to a h...

    Dick Ellis Note:  This Story took place in July of 2007 on Lake Mendota with D&S Bait owner Gene Dellinger.  The size and numbers of Madison’s perch fishery fluctuate with the years. It is well worth your time to keep tabs on the status with the D&S contact numbers concluding this story. It came as no surprise to Gene Delli...

    By Dick Ellis Reader Note: “This Dick’s Trip was taken in 2005. Remember to check for current regulations prior to taking your own trip.  See contact information below to connect with Top Madison Chain fishing expert Gene Dellinger.” Mother Nature was wielding a heavy hand over much of Wisconsin during the opening week of t...

    By Dick Ellis Two promises were being borne on a dark sky and a sliver of moon high above a slowly-awakening Grant County farmyard early Sunday morning.  To the east, a pint of red on the horizon made it a pretty good bet a new day would be in on the 5:26, as scheduled. Maybe less reliable but instinct-certain just the same, a new battle with...

    By Dick Ellis Reader Note:  This “Dick’s Trip” column on the Big Eau Pleine Reservoir near Wausau takes place in 2004 with tremendous Professional Guide Phil Schweik.
