Fish like a GIRL
Last week I had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. TJ Dunn from Rhinelander. Many know him as a veterinarian, but he is also a scientist with a great deal of knowledge about a compound known as Triclosan. This antibacterial pesticide has been given a great deal of press in recent years for its detrimental effects, both to us and to the environment. Our discussion centered around environmental factors - more specifically, fish in our inland lakes. (subscriber access)

Upper Midwest Bass Challenge anglers take on a finicky Boom Lake
Neither the post-spawn, post-front conditions nor the wind and rain could keep over 70 anglers from the Upper Midwest Bass Challenge (UMBCS) from the water last Sunday as they took on Boom Lake, what is perennially known as a finicky fishery at best. For many, last weekend was the first time they had seen the fishery. The UMBCS has been held on the west side of the state for many years until tournament director Gregg Kizewski moved to St. Germain just last year. (subscriber access)

This will be the second annual Disabled Veterans tournament put on by Kris Hanes, a veteran himself and member of the Portage County Bass Anglers. Hanes held the inaugural tournament last year on Shawano Lake in Shawano and this year decided to move the tournament to the Northwoods. This is a team tournament with each veteran fishing with a boater partner.

The lake where you live
Fishing friends and I have a name for those slender, tube-shaped plants that spike up in clusters in shallow water along lakeshores. We call them pencil reeds. And we're wrong. They are really not reeds at all but rushes of various kinds, in many cases hardstem or softstem bulrushes.

Traveling trails less traveled
Let me begin by confessing I don't fish very often anymore, and when I do it's usually with someone very special, like family members or long-time friends and/or former clients. And I must add, I only fish when the weather is right, not so much right for catching fish, but right in the sense there is no rain, strong winds, cold temps or storm warnings in the forecast.(subscriber access)

Fish like a girl
Many people have heard of Snapshot Wisconsin. It is a form of citizen science where normal residents like you and me host trail cameras supplied by the DNR, and upload photos from those trail cameras to the DNR website. From there all of the photos go on to another website called Zooniverse. On that website, anyone can log on and see all of the photos from all of the trail cams across the state. (subscriber access)

The lake where you live
The Northwoods is special, and our lakes make it so. It's everyone's job to help keep the water clean, the ecosystems healthy and the scenery beautiful. Lake stewardship is about treating the entire lake as if it were a treasure we own, and thinking always on how our actions affect it. (subscriber access)

Fish like a girl
We all hear a great deal about aquatic invasive plants in the lakes and rivers. I know I talk about them often, but there are other invasive plants causing just as many problems on dry land. Luckily, there is an organization dedicated to dealing specifically with those plants and helping land owners to rid themselves of invasive pests. (subscriber access)

Traveling trails less traveled
One of my long-time friends and I spent this year's fishing "opener" doing a lots of reminiscing, which in recent years has become more common than catching lots of fish. Tom and I started fishing the opener together back in the mid-1980s, so it needs not to be said we've seen quite a bit of water pass under our boats and canoes while fishing in a wide variety of weather conditions.
