Sixgun Black Bear
The blasting bellow of the big .44 surprised me when my right index finger instinctively tightened on the trigger; the bear’s violent reaction and subsequent zero to 30 mph rush, while just a blur, clearly indicated I had connected. Straining to hear the tell-tale moan of a dying bear yielded only the cacophony of a yapping pack of distant coyotes. My black bear quest, which had been eight long years in the making, had boiled down to a few surreal seconds. Continue Reading

Lake Sturgeon Hook and Line Angling Opportunities in Wisconsin
Article authored by multitude of WDNR biologists
By: Ryan Koenigs
Lake sturgeon are the largest and longest lived fish species in the Great Lakes drainage and were historically abundant throughout their native range of the Great Lakes, Mississippi River and Hudson Bay drainages. However, overharvest, migration barriers, pollution, and habitat destruction have resulted in a significant decline in fish populations throughout their range and extirpation of many populations. Wisconsin is right in the heart of the lake sturgeon’s range and remains home to some of the species most successful management programs (http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/fishing/sturgeon/lakesturgeonidentification.html). In fact, Wisconsin boasts vibrant recreational hook and line fisheries and a spear fishery for lake sturgeon in many locations, while most populations in other states are protected from harvest to aid recovery programs.

How To Target Walleyes When The Bugs Are Hatching
For most of us, time on the water fishing for walleyes is limited, so we go fishing whenever we can. If you find yourself on a body of water in late May to mid-June that appears to have simply shut down, the bugs may be ready to hatch. Walleyes start feeding on bugs before and during the hatch. The walleyes use their noses to dig into the mud releasing millions of larvae. This is known as “rutting.” As the larvae start to rise in the water, the fish gorge themselves on this very simple meal. A lot of fish we catch this time of year actually have the skin worn right off their upper lips, and you can see the bugs inside of their mouths. Continue Reading

Merrill and I have been grilling as a team for 33 years now. We have seen, heard and grilled it all! We have seen many changes in the grilling industry and the way meats are harvested. Let’s go back to 1952 when gloriously colored, 22 ½ inch charcoal grills hit the scene. That’s how it all started. Continue Reading
Walleye By Foot
Conventional wisdom says that casting for walleye from shore is a game only for the fall or spring. However, with a little research and some exploring, big walleye can be caught consistently from shore during the hot summer months under the cover of darkness. During this past summer, I worked as a “camp jack” and as a musky guide. Due to the constraints of my job, I was only able to fish for my own enjoyment and solitude during the evenings.
