Is Your Ride Rigged and Ready for Results?
Is Your Ride Rigged and Ready for Results?
By Dennis Foster
Posted March 17, 2015
The first trip of the season is most definitely not the best time to deal with all the little things that can and do go wrong in a boat. Common sense dictates that they can quickly become big things and will ruin a trip if you fail to address them. Foresight can not only salvage a trip for you, but should you experience equipment failures in extreme conditions…it might just save you and your occupants lives. This is just as true for maintaining a boat you may have owned for years as it is for a newly purchased boat. Proper rigging and scheduled maintenance is the key here and any corne...

The Spring Panfish Bonanza
The Spring Panfish Bonanza
By Jerry Carlson
Posted March 12, 2015
Every spring, I look forward to the days when I can drop a boat into open water and fish the shallow water panfish bite. For me, this is an enjoyable time that frequently offers some of the best crappie and bluegill angling of the year. Most anglers understand that this early season rush to shall... read more
Bobbing for Crappies
Bobbing for Crappies
By Israel Dunn
Posted March 2, 2015
Now before you ask, no I'm not talking about a fun game you can play at your next club meeting. I am talking about a great strategy to help you land more of these delicious little fillets with fins. Fishing the late ice/early open water season for crappies can yield some serious table fare. Howev... read more
Take a Kid Fishing, Ice Fishing That Is
Take a Kid Fishing, Ice Fishing That Is
By Dave Duwe
Posted March 1, 2015
With the internet it has been almost impossible to get any kids to play outside or enjoy the outdoors. Most kids are always "plugged in" to their phones or computers. This is a big factor in the decline of the fishing industry as a whole. Given that fact I take every opportunity to introduce some... read more
Dropshot Panfish
Dropshot Panfish
By Ted Pilgrim
Posted February 23, 2015
The Best Rig You've Never Fished? Written in conjnction with Brian "Bro" Brosdahl Amazing that such a versatile rig- this prefect presenter of soft plastics and livebait- would be so little employed by panfish fans. In reality, a dropshot rig can be as productive as a bobber and bait, or even a ... read more
North Country Walleyes, 'Meat' The Precision Jig
North Country Walleyes, 'Meat' The Precision Jig
By JP Bushey
Posted February 18, 2015
In two-line situations throughout North-Central Ontario - and much of the continental Ice Belt for that matter -- not much beats a jig and minnow combination for scraping extra walleye off the spots you jig. Spoons, rattle baits and other lures bring fish under you, and a lively dace, chub or golden... read more
Catching Suspended Basin Fish
Catching Suspended Basin Fish
By Scott Stankowski
Posted February 12, 2015
When it comes to fishing in a large basin like many of our flowages and reservoirs, electronics are a must. I spend a great deal of my time out on ole Lake Winnebago and she behaves in much the same way. I consider myself an above average fisherman in the open water on these bodies of water and ca... read more
Winter Perchin'
Winter Perchin'
By Kevin Fassbind
Posted February 9, 2015
Perch are unquestionably one of the most sought after panfish during the hardwater season. It would seem they have the perfect combination of scrappiness and delicious to put them near the top of any panfisherman's list. The habitat is vast in the northern tier of states. Farm ponds in the Dakotas, ... read more
