New direction needed at DNR Dick Ellis Candidate for governor Tim Michels indicated in October that if elected he would break up the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to serve 1) business and 2 ) the hunting and fishing, or sporting community. “It’s not my opinion that the DNR is broken,” Michels said. “It’s what I hear everywhere I go.” Better days.

    Fishing has improved quite a bit over the last few weeks.  The only factor is the boat traffic which has also picked up.  Northern Pike fishing is still above average.  Most of the fish are in 30-38 ft of water.  The best approach remains lindy rigging medium suckers.  This summer more than most, you need to fish multiple ...

    Fishing continues to be very good.   Most anglers are having great success pan-fishing.  Perch and bluegill fishing has been the most consistent bite.  The best depth has been anywhere from 15-22 ft.  The only real way to fish them is to anchor and fish approximately 6 inches off bottom, depending on the weed growth. ...

    Fishing remains fantastic.  The fish are in their mid summer pattern and they have schooled up and can be caught if you find the schools. Northern Pike fishing has been relatively slow this week.  I think most of the problem is that the bluegills have slid off the weedline and are in 18-24 ft of water.  The few pike I’ve been ...
