A crowd of spectators and anglers gathered to watch the Northern Lakes Bassmasters Lake Tomahawk Open last Saturday.
Saturday marked the 13th annual Northern Lakes Bassmasters Lake Tomahawk Open. While the sun was shining, making it a warm day on the water, the wind was also blowing, making certain places, especially on Lake Tomahawk itself, difficult to fish. (subscriber access)

Traveling trails less traveled
If we could revisit northern Wisconsin, let's say about 1880 when the first trickle of tourism began, we'd see very few females out on the water trying to secure the main course for a shore lunch. (subscriber access)

Fish like a girl
Anyone who has read my column with regularity (thank you to both of you!) knows I love to fish, and that love of fishing was fostered very early on. My dad took me hunting and fishing quite a bit when I was young. My grandma also took me fishing. I was fortunate they both had the time, and the inclination, to do that. I was lucky neither one of them threw me in the lake as well, but that is a story for another day. Suffice it to say I was a fairly hyper kid and not always the most focused. (subscriber access)

Questions regarding the sustainability issues for walleye and other game fish in Vilas and Oneida counties
Since the 1960s there has been a well-documented drop off in the numbers of several species of game fish in many of the Vilas and Oneida county lakes. Some species of fish, such as ciscos, walleye, and some minnows, are far less numerous and/or are no longer present in water bodies which historically held large numbers of sustained populations.

Central Wisconsin River Series anglers take on Lake Nokomis
Weather conditions last Saturday were more reminiscent of September than mid-June as the field of 45 teams in the Central Wisconsin River Series took off shortly before 6:30 that morning for the second stop of the series. There was hope the rain, at least, would hold off until after weigh-in, but wind and cool temperatures did little to increase creature comforts for those out in search of brown and green bass.

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)
