RJ Waite and Steve Scofield became the Wisconsin River Series Championship winners last weekend, bringing over 27 pounds of fish to the scales in two days, including a 6.11-pound kicker on day one.
The Minocqua chain has built the reputation in the last few years of being a bass nursery. Anglers have waded through dozens of small fish for every tournament keeper they have been able to bring to the scales. This past weekend, however, showed a bit of its former glory as a fishery capable of producing good-sized bass. (subscriber access)

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)
