10/28/2022
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.

    This past week fishing was up and down.  The earlier half of the week the fish were very active and by mid-week fishing was slow.  Largemouth bass fishing has been the most consistent bite on the lake.  The fish are in the weeds or in the shallows spawning.  Most of the fish are being caught in 8-10 ft. of water.  The best...

    Walleye fishing has been very good this week.  There are two patterns that are effective.  The first pattern is casting crankbaits down the weed lines.  The other is fishing lindy rigs or split shot rigs using leeches or nightcrawlers.  Most of the success is during the first hour of daylight or the first few hours after sunset....

    This past week fishing has improved dramatically.  The fish are starting to go into their early summer patterns and the weather is also starting to act like early summer.  The largemouth bass are in the shallows and can be easily caught on either artificial lures or live nightcrawlers.  The best depth is in the 5-6 ft. range around ...

    Winter aromatherapy DENNY MURAWSKA On the most bitter days of cold, I watch birds at my feeder and cannot help but feel pity for them.
