Re: Living the dream

With air temps only forecasted to reach the upper 20s for highs and teens for lows several days this week, it appears we could be on the verge of the "big freeze" here in the Tomahawk area. Of course, it very much depends on whether we can get a break from the seemingly nonstop wind that h...

Re: Living the dream

Jeff, The next time I lose a pole through a hole, I'll certainly have to give one of these rigs a try. They look like they'd be a lot of fun fighting a walleye or pike on, too. Well this looks like it might be the last weekend of open water fishing here in the Tomahawk area. If the weather forecasts...

Re: Living the dream

Jeff, Thanks for the information on these automatic rigs. It looks like the rod angle would be about the same as the tip-downs I'm currently using, and it would be a nice benefit to not have to worry about losing the rods anymore. I'm curious if you've tried using these rigs yet? I'd love to get som...

Re: Living the dream

Last fall shallow feeding muskies seemed abundant on the Wisconsin River in the Tomahawk area, which hasn't always been the case yet this fall. As musky anglers know, each new day often calls for a new plan. My new plan this weekend put my biggest musky of the season in the net. Due to the warmer te...

Re: Living the dream

A drug company probably owns the rights to part of this statement, but the best cure I found for the common cold is one part musky and a batch of nice perch. I'm not a doctor, but I have noticed sizable improvements in my health over the past few days after landing a 43-inch musky on the Wisconsin R...

Re: Water temps ?

Was out on Lake Alice yesterday and the water temp at mid-day was at 47 degrees. We received a good bit of early season snow this morning, and air temps today have yet to hit the 40 degree mark. Forecasters are calling for some warm weather heading into this coming weekend, but I suspect the water t...

Re: Living the dream

The irony with my first two musky evening since spring is that it didn't happen on Sunday. The conditions seemed ideal. The Packer game wasn't on as Fox was having troubles with a broadcasting tower. A major lunar period was taking place heading into dusk, a front was moving through producing clouds...

Re: Living the dream

Just a reminder. If you're going to use panfish for bait remember they must be counted as part of your daily bag limit, which is 25 on most inland lakes. I never really use panfish for bait, but when I have run out of minnows and tried small perch or bluegills, I've always noticed that they don't wo...

Re: Living the dream

It might not have felt like it over this past weekend, but signs that fall is upon us here in the Tomahawk area are beginning to emerge. A lot of vegetation was floating down the Wisconsin River yesterday morning, which is a good indicator the fall turnover is now underway. Warmer temps forecasted f...

Jeff, I hope the spots I mentioned in Point pay off. I know they kept me off the square in the downtown and on the water many days while in college. Although, I also spent my fare share of time patronizing the local pubs, too! Good talking with you ParroLocca while you were in town for the Fall Ride...

Re: Fly Fishing in the Tomahawk Area?

WPS provides hydro power in the area and therefore owns much of the property around the dams. If one of their maps isn't available at the chamber, stop by the Tomahawk Leader office in downtown and I'll gladly let you borrow the one I have. It gives pretty good details on how to get to the Spirit, J...

Re: Fly Fishing in the Tomahawk Area?

There's many areas in Tomahawk that offer great fishing from shore due to the number of dams located around town. I would recommend getting a map from the Tomahawk Regional Chamber of Commerce and trying several of these spots, including in particular the ones mentioned above. Wisconsin Public Servi...

Re: Living the dream

After a multitude of not so successful attempts at increasing my musky hook-up rate with suicks, by tweaking them slightly, I have concluded the best option I have found is to spend the money and buy a short rod. How I've come to this conclusion has been through trial and error, bloodied thumb nails...

Fishing cooled off a bit yesterday after a cold front pushed through Tomahawk Wednesday night. The Rico clan up visiting from Lakewood had a tough go at it trying a couple area lakes. We were able to end the day with some success as we found feeding walleyes and some nice sized smallmouths below Kin...

Thanks for reminding me Jeff. The pounder bulldawg should probably be left to the younger guys. I got about 15 casts in before I felt like I needed to go looking for spare parts for my elbow.

There may be some great musky fishing here in the Tomahawk area this Friday as a storm is expected to pass through in the evening and the peek lunar feeding period runs from 5:36 p.m. to 7:36 p.m. Be careful if heading out as some of the storms could be severe. I'll be looking to cover as much big-m...

I agree teams (as well as society) shouldn't rob Peter to pay Paul. One could easily see disposing of Rodgers, perhaps prematurely, to please and bring Favre back as such a move. However, bringing back a quarterback who is a proven winner while releasing a guy who appears might be injury prone, I fe...
