the lake where you live
Before moving to Birch Lake I usually quit fishing for the year after Labor Day and parked my boat in the garage for the winter. September and October weather could be fickle, I reasoned, and with the kids back in school there just wasn't much time for travel to the lakes. (subscriber access)

Fish like a GIRL
Sunday was the last stop of the Upper Midwest Bass Series Challenge (UMBCS) Wisconsin Lakes Division. The points title for the series was all but locked up, but one team was not out mathematically.

Fish like a girl
As an avid bass angler, I do not often pay terribly close attention to other species of fish - other than how bass relate to them, or they to bass. But, when I heard about the "Learn to Fish Musky" class being held in Boulder Junction in conjunction with Musky Daze, I thought it would be interesting to attend and fun to learn more about musky fishing. I was not disappointed. (subscriber access)

With the waterski nationals going on near Veterans' Park, anglers who opted to head up river found a longer slow, no wake near the bridge on Fourth Street, but it was not enough to hamper their spirits or slow down their fishing.
