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 ...

    In the beginning of the 2013 bow season not much was being presented on our trail cams or by direct sight. In early September I caught a picture of this “big one” but I hadn't seen much of him around, just glimpses at distance or late dusk and babies and one or two does. This being my second year of hunting I still had no veniso...

    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 ...

    Water quality and habitat improvements lead to whitefish resurgence on Green Bay GREEN BAY – With the deep freeze thawing this weekend, ice fishing pressure for lake whitefish is expected to pick up again as anglers enjoy a resurgent fishery made possible in part by cleanups that have improved water quality and habitat.   - &n...

    With most mornings starting off in the double digit/below zero mark (17-23 below the last four mornings) participation in the ice is down quite a lot. Fishing was understandably slow due to cold and high pressure system hanging over our area.  Lack of wind made things bearable during the day as temps warmed up to 7-14 degrees above by mid aft...

    By John Luthens Matthew Klein, of Fond du Lac, stood in a long waiting line to register his sturgeon on the opening day of Lake Winnebago’s spearing season.  He didn’t mind.  He stood line with the spirits of the generations; spirits haunting the ice of the Lake Winnebago system in a storied tradition, perched in dark...

    Attention Winnebago Sturgeon Spearing Enthusiasts: As you all should be aware from my previous email report, the Upriver Lakes spear fishery closed today after just three short days.  The 341 fish harvested during the Upriver Lakes season is the most ever harvested during an Upriver Lakes fishery since the lottery system was imp...

    I wanted to provide some background information on just how this season’s opening day compared to opening day in past seasons that had similar regulations.  Most notably the 6-hour season was initiated in 2002, so I compared this year’s opening day harvest to opening days since 2002.  The attached document shows the average ...
