December Holiday Cheer And Ice
December is a great month! Everyone seems to be full of holiday cheer and ice starts to accumulate on our lakes. I love Christmas, but it's the hard water part that fills me with excitement! Early ice is a great time for catching panfish, but should certainly be approached with caution. Most years there is fishable ice somewhere in southern Wisconsin by the week after Thanksgiving.

Everyone has caught the occasional stick bass or weed bass, but the real thrill is catching the non-native exotic species.

One of the greatest fisheries in the Midwest and especially Northeastern Wisconsin is Green Bay. With 1,626 squares miles of water to fish it is a huge and sometimes intimidating body of water to tackle. Green Bay is well known f... read more
Ice Fishing Over the Edge
Surface irregularities serve as a template for pinpoint hole drilling during early-ice Landing a limit of fish through a hole is a lot like running a flourishing retail business - no matter what you're offering, success ultimately boils down to location, location... location. "Close enough" won't cut it with fish or commerce. In hardwater angling, the exact position of your hole must often be reduced to mere inches rather than "somewhere within sight."
