Re: Living the dream

Jeff, God's Country just seems to be getting better each day this fall, if possible. I have to keep this short because I'm heading out on Lake Alice as soon as I get done with work. I'll keep you posted on the Lake Alice bite, as well as other bodies of water in the area, until next summer. Sunny, A...

Re: Living the dream

Not too bad for my first time musky fishing on Lake Alice last night. The water was calm after the evening rain, so I decided to head out in my row boat and flip a top raider before darkness fell. Earlier, I had stopped by Chuck's to pick up some supplies and decided to grab a couple musky suckers. ...

Re: Living the dream

ToddC, Thanks for your insight on moon phases and weather fronts. When faced with fishing after a cold front, say opening weekend or when friends are visiting, I normally try to stay pretty broad with the species I intend to catch. I'll normally start off by fishing for game fish, but I don't hesita...

Re: Living the dream

Ah yes. I see Fishing Unlimited stocked Lake Alice with 6,000 channel catfish a few years back, which means by now those fish would be pretty big. I'll have to throw a gob of worms off the dock this weekend and see if I can't come across one of those nighttime prowlers. Fishing before the storm last...

Re: Living the dream

Mullin17, I haven't done it yet, but your post may have just pushed me over the edge. I've been talking about going catfishing this entire summer and have yet to do so. I think your shock of catching a very, very nice channel cat (I presume) would have come as a shock to many local anglers. I'm not ...

Re: Living the dream

Kingrdlk,
Four muskies off your dock sounds like a pretty good deal. Just wondering if any of those fish looked like the alligators you've seen?
Tuesday night I saw several suckers come to the surface while I was fishing. The next few days might be the time to get number five.

Re: Living the dream

The beauty of first ice is you don't have a lot of people on the lake and snowmobiles are too heavy to be out. I'm talking two to four inches when I refer to early ice. The best years are when you can get out around or before Thanksgiving. Bays are always the first to freeze. I always make sure to c...

Re: Living the dream

Jeff, A few weeks ago you were asking about Lake Alice and where to fish. Well, in the future I'll be able to share very up to date information with you because I'm moving to the lake at the end of this month. I LOVE first ice fishing. I love the silence, the thrill it gives me, and above all, I lov...

Re: Living the dream

Jeff, It is legal to use panfish as bait as long as you count them as part of your daily slot limit. Just as concerning as the line in the water at Kings Dam, I find the line on the shoreline to be another potential hazard. Small mammals and waterfowl are known casualties of this often careless disr...

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 ...

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...

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 ...

Hello fellow anglers, I had the biggest swirl behind a top raider of my entire life while fishing Lake Mohawksin last night.

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.
