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)

the lake where you live
Just across the road from Birch Lake where I live lies Sand Lake, less than 1/4 the size of Birch at 40 acres, much clearer and, unlike Birch, free of autumn algae blooms. On the other hand, Sand Lake contains mainly largemouth bass and bluegills, while Birch Lake hosts bluegills, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, walleyes, northern pike and muskies. (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)

Traveling trails less traveled
Boat (bot) n. 1. A small, open watercraft propelled by oars, sails or an engine. (Collier's dictionary, 1961)

Not having access to a more recent dictionary, I'm not sure what the current primary definition of "boat" might be presently, and I'm sure it's much different than the one I quoted. (subscriber access)

The lake where you live
A flower grows at the base of our pier that would look right at home in a botanical garden, in the hair of a wedding flower girl, or in the corsage of a prom queen. It's better, though, exactly where it is, blooming in splendor on the shore of Birch Lake, where I see it every time I go down to the boat. (subscriber access)
