  • Last weekend the 3rd annual Veterans on the Water bass tournament was held on the Minocqua chain. There were 23 boats in the tournament, each a two-person team.

  • In my last two weekly columns I reminisced about my youthful urge to locate small, back in the boonies lakes that were seldom fished, as additional options other than fishing a hand full of more popular lakes day after day, and week after week. As mentioned, my era of exploration spanned the second half of the 1950s through the very early 1970s.

  • As a tournament angler, I am big on catch and release fishing. We do it at every tournament. We want all of the fish caught on any given day to go back into the water healthy and happy. That allows someone else to have the same fun catching them another day. (subscriber access)
  • The sport of fishing is comprised of numerous puzzle parts, one being, an angler never knows what might accidently end up on the end of their line. Sportspersons who are out looking and hoping for a specific species are often shocked or surprised what ends up in the landing net.
  • Last weekend I had the opportunity to fish Lake Winneconne for the first time. Fishing in the southern part of the state, to me, is a lot different than fishing up here. I grew up with our clear northern lakes as well as the darker flow ages. (subscriber access)
  • Once upon a time, many thousands of years ago, a huge, slow moving bulldozer ground it way south out of what is now Canada. This bulldozer was made of ice, in some places over a mile thick, and as it nudged ever southward, it pushed or carried with it millions of tons of sand, gravel, rock and gigantic boulders that were scrapped off what is now called the Canadian Shield.
