Re: Living the dream

I'm also familiar with the Kings Dam musky and the one that got away. Last fall, I had a strike from what I believed to be a very large musky I had just seen submarine below the dam. After casting every plug in my musky tackle box, I decided to call it a night. The next morning, I returned to Kings ...

Re: louis

I will contest that the word attest would have better served to describe the prosecution's challenge of proving Louis is guilty. I used the word contest because I personally cannot comprehend that someone would kill over $200. As to contest a controversial question. I've found that eating crow is of...

Re: louis

Hello Tomahawk_Marine, As a reporter for the Tomahawk Leader, I've been covering this homicide from the beginning. It's senseless, horrifying and above all, its a real tragedy for the Tomahawk community and Maurer family. As the Lincoln County District Attorney's office will contest, this murder was...

Re: Living the dream

Two nice smallmouth bass and a small walleye. Not bad for a quick lunch. As are the many reasons I enjoy living in Tomahawk, having quick, excellent fishing at my hands is a real treat. I have a 15-minute break coming up in a few hours. Hmmm. Fishing this Labor Day weekend should be a blast. The pro...

Re: Living the dream

Hmmm. I have an hour for lunch. It takes me five minutes one way to get to one of three dams nearby in the city. That means I would have 50 minutes to see how many bass and walleyes I can catch. The thing about fishing is, once its in my head, it supersedes nearly all other priorities. Lunch can wai...

Re: Living the dream

Jeff, Good to read you had success and were able to put some fish in the boat. A 18.5 inch smallie puts up a pretty nice fight, and some walleyes for the frying pan is always a nice treat. Congrats! Did you end up floating the river down? I've been meaning to make the trip, but I've been focusing my...

Re: Living the dream

Drought conditions have kept me out of area trout streams over the past few weeks. Hopefully this fall will bring rain and the rivers will return to regular flow. While the dry conditions have kept me away from the Prairie River, it hasn't kept me from catching fish. In fact, it has actually worked ...

Re: Living the dream

Hello Jeff, If I was fishing Lake Alice this weekend, the first place I would try is an area known as Menard Island. First, I should let you know I haven't done this canoe trip yet, but from what I've been told, it can be very rewarding. However, you should also know I've fished the Menard Island ar...

Re: Living the dream

Hello fellow anglers, I had the biggest swirl behind a top raider of my entire life while fishing Lake Mohawksin last night. The fish were very active and I spotted this one feeding as it chased bait fish along a weed line. I didn't see the incoming musky, however, after doing a figure eight boat si...

Re: Living the dream

As some of you may have read in this week's issue of the Tomahawk Leader, I believe checkpoints at both ends of U.S. Hwy. 51 could help slow the spread of VHS into our waterways. As an angler, I feel it's important to protect the very resource I've come to love. In case you missed it, here's the edi...

Re: Living the dream

So that's fishing. Sometimes, as Sir Izaak Walton so eloquently once put it," "For that time I was lifted above earth; And possest things not promis'd in my birth." Fishing the Spirit and again Seven Island this past weekend was much different than the euphoric experience Walton descr...

Re: Living the dream

Catfish, Thank you Catfish. I can now chalk another of life's mysteries off the list. Like many others, I'm sure, I counted the number of islands while floating around Seven Island Lake and only came up with five, if I don't recall. I've never claimed to be good at math, but I do have two hands that...

Re: Living the dream

I ask my sister to post one memorable fishing experience she had with me and she flat comes out and shows me up! Couldn't mention the clinic I put on with the steelhead on the Sheboygan River? Or the thousands of walleyes that have died by these hands? Sister, you are on the verge of facing my senso...

Re: Correction

Re: Living the dream

Good point Ken, I think how I came to call Tomahawk home is in itself a testament to the draw this area has. Growing up in Clintonville, which is approximately one hour southeast of Wausau, I spent much of my time learning from my father, brother and friends the sport of angling. After graduation, I...

Living the dream

One of the greatest joys of my job as a reporter for the Tomahawk Leader is hearing the amazing fishing stories anglers throughout the Northwoods have to share. Whether it's a grandfather taking his grandson fishing for the first time or a musky angler doing something strange to catch a fish, these ...
