Fish like a girl
Opinions, it is said, are like utility bills - everyone has one. Nowhere is that more evident than when it comes to topics related to the outdoors. Whether it's fishing, hunting, or trapping, it seems we all have an opinion and, at times, a rather strong one, related to what is right and wrong in the way of species management and which stakeholders' needs are more important than others.

Fish like a girl: Fishing Fitness
Fishing really doesn't seem that physically demanding, at least not on the surface. But in reality, there can be a lot more to it than meets the eye. Whether you're standing on the front of a bass boat all day, trolling for walleye through three footers on the big lake, or chucking a big musky bait for hours, it can take a toll on your body.

Fish like a girl: Using a fishing log
For me, winter is a great time to look back on past fishing seasons, get gear ready for next season, and, in general, just think about what went well and what went poorly last year. If I were smart, I'd be looking at my fishing logs from years past. Then again, if I were smart, I would have kept complete fishing logs from years past. It seems hard to do for some reason.

Free fishing weekend not just for summer anglers
Each year Wisconsin holds two free fishing weekends, one in June and one in January. Free fishing weekends are meant to help people learn about fishing and to get out and enjoy doing something outdoors. Anyone can participate in free fishing weekend because no license is needed. Regular bag limits, length limits, and seasons still apply, but those new to fishing don't have to go out and buy a license. (subscriber access)

Fish like a girl: Tackle organization
I'm no Aaron Martens, but I like there to be some semblance of order to my tackle. For those who don't follow professional bass fishing, Aaron Martens has, bar none, the most organized tackle in the history of bass fishing. I heard an interview with him once where he said he works on tackle 10 hours per day. 10 hours. That's amazing. (subscriber access)

Ice fishing and invasive species
Once the water freezes over and anglers head out ice fishing, many believe the chances of spreading invasive species are gone. Unfortunately, that is far from the truth. There are still aquatic plants and animals that can be transported by unsuspecting anglers from one lake to the next, according to the Department of Natural Resources. (subscriber access)
