    Don’t put those snow shovels away yet, folks. It’s a spring with both cold fronts and warm fronts. There was even a little snow in the air Sunday morning keeping the water temperatures in the upper 40s. 
    As long as May provides more

    The North Woods is still on that spring roller coaster of weather, having experienced almost summer-like weather and significant snow in the last week. 
    With the recent rain and wind, the ice is gone on all lakes. Pretty early for that, but certainly welcome to most of us. We never got to do a lot of that late-season crappie fishing we like so much because the ice went out so quickly.
    Right now the grass is
  • Perch first to be tested by North Woods anglers

    We certainly had some nicer weather late last week and on the weekend. The warmer weather got rid of a lot of the ice on lakes in the area, although not all are ice-free at this point. Nevertheless, spring is here for anglers. 
    The loons are back and we’ve seen some geese and ducks in the area. When you go outside, there are birds we haven’t heard since last year. 
    The North Woods will

    With our spring weather getting ever nicer, I have one piece of advice for everyone — don’t put those snow shovels away for the year just yet. The North Woods is just bound to have a big snow before May rolls around. 
    This nicer weather that many enjoyed over the weekend may 
  • Lakes have enough ice for those panfish anglers
    Tuesday, March 28, 2017 11:29 AM
    The waiting game before spring really arrives seems to be taunting us. It’s a tough time up here. The North Woods has had enough rain, wind and messy weather to last — it seems — a lifetime. 
    Lakes have

    The weather is ever so slowly warming as we head toward the end of March, but it has been a tough month for everyone. We had that false sense of spring in February when it got so warm, but it has been cold since then. 
    This part of spring — that last three to four weeks — can be really
  • Tuesday, March 14, 2017 11:13 AM
    For the past week, at least in the fishing world, we don’t have a lot to talk about. That absolutely miserable weather we had in the last week kept people from getting out and enjoying our late-season ice fishing.

  • Time to pursue panfish as game fishing ends
    Tuesday, March 7, 2017 3:17 PM
    The game fishing season is over and anglers are limited to panfish for the rest of the winter and spring.
    All in all, it was an OK game fish season, with 
  • Tuesday, February 28, 2017 11:59 AM
    Well, anglers have only a weekend left in the game fishing season before they are limited to just fishing for panfish. The game fishing season comes to an end this Sunday, March 5.
    It is

    The North Woods continues to have unusual winter weather, as we have lost much of our snow and some of our ice due to the unbelievably warm weather the past week.
    One can’t help but feel that we’ll

    The best way to describe the overall fishing at this point is to say that the fish are using feeding windows to the extreme right now. 
    Anglers can go out and see fish on their electronics or see fish on the bottom from their dark shacks, but the fish simply will not hit. Then, in a one-hour period they’ll hit like crazy, for reasons that most can’t understand. These feeding windows change daily, so anglers can’t get a good pattern on the fish. 
    What a winter it’s been weatherwise. It’s either raining/sleeting
  • Inconsistent weather leads to tough fishing
    Tuesday, February 7, 2017 2:18 PM
    Fishing remains somewhat inconsistent, as does the weather in the North Woods. We are looking at a week of temperatures varying from lows below zero all the way to highs into the 30s. 
    There is still a lot of winter left, regardless, and we might

    The dreaded midwinter blues are upon us, which means fishing is more inconsistent and many people are longing for spring. 
    Well, face the fact that there is a lot of winter left and we might as well make the best of it with ice fishing and other winter activities. 
    There is a lot of good ice fishing left

    A continuation of the absolutely weird winter weather has brought slush back into the picture on North Woods lakes.
    The warm temperatures did drop the snow level on the lakes significantly. When we get some colder weather later this week, it should be much easier to get around on the lakes. 
    We’re in the middle of that January
