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.
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!!
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

St. Croix Kid nice report, glad you had some action on the river, that is a very intriguing fishery. People might be interested if you care to reveal, did you go in your own boat? or trip with Shane at Midway? I've heard a lot of good things about the river trips both fishing and especially the scenery.
WalleyeFollower767, really nice report, thank you, I fish every day but I also pay attention to other peoples reports.
Fished a delayed start today after the rumbling and lightening then a shorted day due to the deluge of late day rain, even my hat had a puddle underneath it after being home and hanging for a short time. 6 hours of musky fishing in today, caught three muskies, all smaller fish, also caught 4 pike, saw one good ski, hit the bait, no hook up, and a couple unidentified fish pike or musky?
Think weather conditions were favorable but would conclude the musky are getting active, last two days,12 hours of fishing: caught 4, seen 8 for sure skis and a couple unknowns .
Been catching the fish on bucktails, today spent our time mostly fishing shallow weeds, had a father and young son who held up pretty good in the adverse conditions. Have had pretty good success on bucktails from Man Cave Bait Co. In fact looking to place an order.
Had a cancellation for Monday if anyone is interested.
My family and I just got back from the TFF. It was our first time up there. What a beautiful body of water. We caught fish everyday, mostly smallies, perch and smaller walleyes. The highlight was going out on Weds with Jeff Robl. 730 pick up at the dock, lines in the water by 745, fish on by 746......then the rain started. It rained all morning and my wife called it quits around 10 and Jeff was nice enough to drive her back to our place. She was a trooper! Jeff took me and my 2 boys out for more wet fun and we caught smallies, walleyes, perch and a bunch of pesky rock bass the rest of the day. He said he counted 18 smallies that day, all but 2 or 3 were in the slot. Had a double on once and a couple other potential doubles that one shook off near the boat. Got a few bigger walleyes and some nice perch in the box for a fish fry. Jeff is a great guy we had a blast catching fish and laughing all day long. The conditions were horrible and I dont know if we even saw another boat out there, but Jeff kept putting us on fish! Thanks again Jeff!
nice report. A 3’ muskie is a doggone nice fish.
the river was really great. We caught bass this year and a lot of them. They were in the typical spots. Behind rocks in the current and on the banks around wood and rock. No other species this year. All on crayfish imitation plastic. Nothing on spinners which are typically good. Maybe the population is coming back?
caught a couple of 16 to 17” fish.
lots of 13” and smaller. Bodes well for future. Great trip. Good flow in river. Water level perfect. Mosquitoes were off the chart bad. Flies too
