John Eiden took advantage of one big opportunity opening morning on Winnebago when he speared this 171 pound, 84-1/2 inch sturgeon while holding vigil with his father, John. Good buddy Scott Heitman and I took our traditional ride north from the Milwaukee suburbs to the ice of Winnebago Saturday to be there with cameras and notebook in hand when the first sturgeon speared on opening day started to hit the registration stations.  When we a...

    February 11, 2019 Steve Suman More winter weather (i.e., snow) and stiff winds are on the way, but with temperatures that are more seasonal. It IS February, so there is still some winter ahead.

    Fishing in the Lakeland area got a little tougher after a week of snow and cold.  Snow could have been worse, luckily it was light enough to blow off the lakes to some extent.  The frozen crust from the earlier ice storm did protect some, but overall on the lakes it’s not bad.   The cold (29 below 2/9) kept more anglers off t...

    Well it looks like we are off to an early start on winter. What a crazy year. We went from winter to summer, then right back to winter. We had a very short fall if any really, and basically no spring this year whatsoever.  But now with the 2018 gun deer season only about a week away I know many hunters like myself are happy to see the snow on ...

Only a few days ago the morning low was 27 degrees below zero and now we have highs in the 50s for the entire week! We will see, but the month of March looks to be mild, according to long-term forecast. “Cold weather early last week...

    Up and down and up and down, that is how our winter is going so far. The good thing is that the fishing is consistent and very good for almost all species that we are targeting.  Walleye and pike are feeding aggressively and we are picking up some really nice fish. The panfish bite has been very good with some very large crappies and gills hit...

    It’s gotten plenty chilly outside.  Most days not seeing temps above 0 degrees, and wind chills in the 30-50 degrees below keeping anglers off the ice (and who can blame them!).   If there is a bright side to this (and you’ve got to look very hard) most of the heavy snow is south of the Northwoods.  The lack of snow cov...
