    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 ...

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...
