Here is a link to a WDNR PDF dated April 2016 that speaks directly to the firewood issue on the TFF.

under Rules for State property -

As of June 1, 2014, if you are bringing wood to a state property it must meet all of the following criteria:

be from within 10 miles of the state property; and

If you are bringing firewood to a state property, it must originate within 10 miles of the state property in consideration. Firewood from another state that is quarantined for emerald ash borer is not allowed. DATCP-certified firewood may be brought onto state properties – their certification guarantees that firewood has been properly treated to kill pests and disease-carrying organisms.

Sawduster you can move the wood within the county. In fact you can in many cases move it from one county to another. All 72 counties in Wi. are now quarantined for the emerald ash borer which means you can transport wood from one quarantined county to another. However there are 22 counties not quarantined for the gypsy moth, therefore you cannot bring any wood into those counties without being inspected or purchased from a Wi. licensed dealer. Many campgrounds have set their own regulations, they may or may not let you bring in your own wood.

Is intra-county firewood transport still banned? I would like to know if I can haul in firewood to a remote TFF campsite.

Tight lines everyone!

couple more pics with the gang.

It is very challenging fishing with 3 young boys, but Jeff was very patient and gave us a great time. Also taught us a few things to put us on fish the rest of the week which was successful as you can see by the stringer of the few we decided to keep the next day.  Released most, but some were hooked too deep.

Thank you Jeff!!!

Had a GREAT time fishing with Jeff Robl on Tues.  Thank you so much!  The boys had a great time.  Highlight was all 3 boys with consecutive 3+ pound smallmouth in the boat at virtually the same time.  Bite was slow at first, but you can rest assured that Jeff will work hard to find active fish.  We hammered them after we found them.  Memories for a life time!

Also wanted to put a shout out to Tom who was extremely generous and helpful as well!!

We rent canoes and pitch tents at 9 Mile tavern. Float from there to Deadmans Slough or Oxbo. I’ve done Shane’s trip a bunch of times also.

FISHING REPORT

MOON PHASE
Last Quarter

Fished fishermans landing area the past week.   Caught some nice perch, a few real nice crappies 8 walleye a few walleye we kept to eat that were 14 to 15 inches. Also caught some gills, smallies, a pike and 2 snapping turtles that let go by the boat thank goodness.   Fished mostly shallow wood and cribs with slip bobbers.  My family had a blast on the tff once again. Crazy how u become a dad and truly seeing your kids catch fish matters more than catching them yourself.  If i had a dollar for every snag i could of retired today.  But if ur not getting snags on the tff u arent fishing close to where the fish are. Til next year.      -beckman.    Thanks to all for posting reports, every report i read is like a piece of the up north atmosphere i take in

P'TownPig194  just saw your post, thank you for the good words, was a fun day on the water . First spot very enjoyable to hear the SWOOSH! of a good hookset from your sons Matt and John, they were taught well. John ought to try to get up here first week in June with his fly rod for the shallow smallmouth. Have him call me for any advice. 

Thanks again Jeff
