Fall brings with it something for everyone in the field from the angler to the hunter.  Just a few recent sessions of shooting the bull tell me that autumn is for the youngest of outdoorsman just learning the games to those of us more seasoned with our eyes focused dead ahead on for example, the whitetail rut. James Wallace captured this great buck on trail camera during summer scouting. James Wallace, my nephew-in-law (is there such a ...

    Well the weather forecast was pretty accurate for the opening day of the 2015 sturgeon spearing season.  As forecasted, we had very cold conditions and strong winds which led to very poor visibility for travel on Lake Winnebago and the Upriver Lakes.  Ed Culhane from the DNR was out on Lake Winnebago this morning and captured a couple of ...

    John Luthens The thermometer bobbed undecidedly near the zero mark, but being that every flag was standing at full attention in a northwest windstorm, those few degrees, one way or another, blended meaninglessly into a whiteout.

    Dear Winnebago System Sturgeon Enthusiasts: Well spearers were once again met with cold conditions on day 2 of the 2015 spearing season, but at least the winds had died down and visibility on the lake had substantially improved.  Shanty counts on Lake Winnebago and the Upriver Lakes remained similar to those observed on day 1 with the o...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler I have been watching the weather on days I like to fish and partly cloudy are the best.  The mornings during the first three hours have produced very good fishing.  Ice is thick in most places with a few springs along the shoreline keeping water open if you’re fishing the backwaters of the Wisconsin River.&nb...

    What a difference a year makes. Last year at this time, travel on the ice was almost impossible with the amount of snow and slush we had. Right now, travel is very easy on the ice which is a good thing when wanting to chase finicky mid-winter fish. I always like to say, stay mobile and always continue to look for the right fish you want to catch. S...
