    A snowmobiler was cruising across Shawano Lake when he suddenly dropped into 100 yards of open and icy water, courtesy of a pressure crack. That was the first of three rescues that same February night by three WDNR conservation wardens. Read what happened next: https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/WardenWire/WardenWire_Lookup.asp?id=4...

    Lots of snow is making for tough conditions as ice anglers head out.  With that said the ice fishing has been very good. We had a great week catching some very nice crappies, bluegills, pike and walleyes.  The ice conditions are very good with most areas showing 16 or more inches of good ice.  Don’t let that completely fool you...

    Not surprisingly, this week's headline has been the cold weather. In all likelihood you noted some very active feeders, fluffed up birds huddled out of the wind and in the sun, and probably at least a few birds with ice-dappled feathers. No doubt it was a trying time for some species, including at least a few reports of compromised or dead birds. ...

    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...
