Canada Trip 2019

Another bucket list item was checked off my list earlier this month as I traveled to Stanley’s Resort in the west arm of Eagle Lake located in Ontario, Canada. Let me tell ya, everything you hear about Canada and the fishing, is 100% true! I had an absolute blast spending a full week on the water chasing walleye, northern, smallmouth and lake trout. To give it to you best, I will breakdown day by day my 10 day excursion and experiences along the way. Continue Reading

River Magic

River Magic 

Who doesn’t love a good magic show? The music, the lights, and the awe of wondering how the magician made the trick happen. A great magician knows how to plan for a spectacular show. A good river angler knows where to be and what to use to get a bite. Both are masters of creating illusions.  Continue Reading

Summer Muskies

Sundown Summer Muskies

By: Kyle Sorensen

As the opener has come and gone and the temperatures begin to climb, the steady muskie action we have been accustomed to over the last month or so begins to slowly dissipate (for arguments sake).  While casting away at shorelines and structure throughout the day can surely produce, I hold out and save the effort and time for the magic of the evening bite.  If you are a muskie fisherman, you know of the magic I speak of.  The setting sun, the calling of the loons, the feeling of being the only one on the lake; the word “supernatural” doesn’t even do it justice.

Snow-Goose Heaven

Let It Snow

By Marc Drewek

Snow goose hunting was stopped in 1916 because of low population levels. Hunting was allowed again in 1975 after a long recovery. Since then, their numbers have escalated to the point where they are destroying their nesting habitat in the arctic tundra. Many of their areas are also used by other species of birds and wildlife. Snow geese are grazers and feed mainly on grasses and sedges. In and around many nesting colonies, grazing by geese is so intense that it kills the plants and leaves the ground void of plant life. This over grazing of plants leads to erosion of thin layers of topsoil needed to sustain plant life. As the geese destroy these prime areas they move on to less productive areas that are more delicate and easier to destroy. Once these areas are gone, the moisture in the soil evaporates and leads to salinization (buildup of salt). This then leads to areas totally void of plant life; ultimately destroying their own habitat. This habitat is fragile and cannot tolerate the ever increasing snow goose population. At some point, there will be an environmental disaster. This fragile habitat may take decades to recover, if it recovers at all. Continue Reading

Cane Pole Success

Cane Pole Success

By: Kyle Sorensen

We can all look back and remember that time we landed that big fish or that time we were out on the water and something unique transpired. Growing up, I was able to be a part of many fun and exciting fishing moments. One of these memories had recently been flashing into my mind more and more so I decided to relive it the best I could: cane pole fishing with gramps. Even though gramps passed away last year, I know he’s always out fishing with me. Continue Reading
