Woodland Trails: Catching that record-breaking fish
So you want to catch a Wisconsin state record fish, huh? Is it skill or just dumb luck that put those guys and gals in the record books? I've had chances but my luck was terrible so you won't be reading my name in any record books. At least not yet! The record largemouth tips the...

Woodland Trails: Fishing for sunfish is great
When I think of Norman Rockwell paintings I can see a couple of kids riding bikes with a red coffee can in one hand and a rod and reel in the other hand as they ride their bikes hurriedly down an old gravel road on their way to their secret spot. If you are an angler who grew up in...

Woodland Trails: Day of catching big fish
It was a big fish! The drag was squealing and the rod was doubled over. The way the fish was running and taking out line we figured it had to be a big pike. I'd caught big pike in little Lost Lake with no public boat launch before. I knew how pike like to run so I knew it had to be...

Woodland Trails: Bad weather for opener
I can only remember two previous fishing openers that had worse weather than the one we had last Saturday. The worst was when I opened up on Lake Wissota a few years back. It was cold. Did I say it was cold? How cold, you ask? By midmorning we had over 6 inches of snow in the bottom...

Woodland Trails: Panfish limit cut by DNR
I remember when I was a kid going fishing with family and catching lots of fish. I don't mean lots of fish. I mean LOTS of fish! Most of the people I know tell me the same stories. Lakes full of fish, and getting a limit was always as easy as 1-2-3! Crappies, sunfish, bass, pike --...
