Pete Maina On Triggering Muskie Strikes: I Like The SOUND Of That
You might say the legendary muskie angler, Pete Maina, has been around the watery-block a time or two. Whether it's his former life of guiding hundreds of esox anglers a year, to currently writing books, appearing on television, and filling seminar halls- this long-haired boisterous angler not only knows how to catch em', he knows how to teach other to do it too. But what more can be said about muskie fishing? Are there still strategies that have yet to been uncorked or have we exhausted the memory bank on new ways to get these dang things to bite? Maina says that there will always b...

Weedbed Bass
Weedbed Bass
By Dave Lorier
Posted July 9, 2015
Weedbeds offer shade, ambush points, and a smorgasboard of craws and panfish, making them one of the most reliable places to find bass. The most difficult task in fishing vast weedbeds for bass is to actually find the fish. Flipping is arguably the most effective way to catch bass in dense vegetat... read more

Hook, Line & Sinker: The Technique of Choice
By Dave Duwe
Posted July 6, 2015
Fishing is not always about the most expensive gear and tackle. Most of the time keeping it simple produces the most fish. Over the two decades that I have been guiding, I have chased the fishing trends trying to catch more and bigger fish. Out of all the products and methods I have fished, I hav... read more

Do Your Homework before Exploring New Water
Do Your Homework before Exploring New Water
By Jerry Carlson
Posted June 24, 2015
Every summer I make an effort to explore a few new lakes to see if there are bodies of water I am not familiar with that need some attention. I also make a concerted effort to spend time looking for new fishing spots on my list of regulars. Either way, there is some research that is done before I ge... read more
Walleyes On The Rock
Walleyes On The Rock
By Dan Durbin
Posted June 19, 2015
The Rock River in Jefferson County gets a ton of pressure. It does so because it is one of the closest rivers to the metro-Milwaukee area that has a fishable population of walleye AND because it can be pretty darn good too. One guy that has been fishing the Rock since he was barely in his te... read more
Variable Depths on Planer Boards
Variable Depths on Planer Boards
By Scott Stankowski
Posted June 17, 2015
Fishing with planer boards has become a popular technique over the past decade. It offers fisherman a way to cover a lot of ground in the hopes of getting a fish to strike.

Thoughts On Fish Sandwiches
By Ted Peck
Posted June 2, 2015
The older I get, the more Paul "Sprink" Hensal reminds me of King Solomon. Hensal was one of just four game wardens in wild and wooly northwest Illinois where I came of age in the 1960's. Hensal was tough, gruff-and fair. His only son and I were good buddies all through school. Before we were b... read more
