  • Central Wisconsin River Series takes on Lake Mohawksin
    Catching bass on Lake Mohawksin last weekend did not seem to be a big problem for most teams in the Central Wisconsin River Series, with 30 of 42 teams bringing in a limit. Finding the bigger fish, however, did prove to be problematic for many. Most teams reported catching well over their limits of fish, but all of them were “cookie cutters,” fish which might allow a team to cull up by an ounce or two, but not by much more, if at all.

While some lakes are more affected than others, it is an issue in which all lake stakeholders are interested.  (subscriber access)
  • To my surprise, the boat launch was empty when I arrived at Clear lake early last Saturday morning, and it was so quiet. There was not the slightest breeze to a cause a bit of noise or nudge a ripple across the water. The darkness and silence of outer space had settled upon the lake and, as I rowed my boat through the thin, misty haze hovering above the water, it could not have been more apparent that I was alone.
