    Great story, great fish! Love the line about Mike Lazarus, a highly successful guide, saying the fish won't hit because of the boat grinding against ice and all the noise, yet it did just that. ...

    Where I am in Oneida County WI you can only have one sucker rod out if the boat is moving under power. If you anchor, then you can have up to three. And I believe if you simply drift, no trolling...

    Steve, as a volunteer who works the landing on the chain where I live, I can tell the absolute worst people to try and talk to about clean boats/clean water are musky fishermen. They also are the...

    Spring weather impacted weed growth on the lake where I live in northern WI, but some lakes have had there cabbage beds wiped out by rusty cray fish. Don't know if rustys have made it to Ontario.

    One box I really like is the pedestal box that goes around my butt seat pedestal up front. Keep 6 to 8 favorite lures there, plus it has pockets on the outside where I keep release tools and files. ...

    Coming back to Rhinelander from a wedding in the Fox Valley last Sunday, we must have seen well over a hundred fishing boats going south on Hwy 45 between Antigo and Hwy 8. I have to believe most...

    We have mid 70s in Oneida, on the lake where I live. Shallow and dark. Was in the water this morning, working on dock. Markedly cooler just a foot down.

    I think Steve's idea is correct. I live on a small chain/flowage near Rhinelander. At 6:00 AM today, I could still see the outline of the snow banks from the ice rink I shoveled out at Christmas. ...

    Maybe it would seem more like the end of the show's season if there wasn't still 2+ feet of ice on the lake in front of my house.

    What is the best tip up set for walleyes through the ice for the...

    I concur, enjoyed this year's shows. I think part of it is that Jim and his guests seem to be having fun. Including when things don't go quite as planned, they can still laugh and enjoy it.

    I bought the ones I have from Fleet Farm. Good warranty, good price. I am a long ways from the nearest Cabela's.

    LOL, Steve that is probably the most honest statement a magazine editor ever made about one of its writers!

    Thanks Steve. This sounds good, and I am only a fifteen minute drive from Nicolet. Will try and get a couple neighbors to come as well.

    Steve, do the two days have different topics or is the second Saturday a repeat of the first?

    It was originally in the bathroom. I apologize for the error, that was the story I had read, that it was a bar and grill.

    Steve, the folks that don't believe in the Spray record should at least find solace in knowing the photo is going to be rehung in the toilet of a dive bar. Certain poetic justice there.

    I fail to see how the line guide not engaging during the cast causes backlashes. I picked up a Revo Toro S last summer and it has the same feature. I love it, it has an easy to use adjustment and...

    Steve's point about always doing a figure 8 and building that muscle memory is a good one. Tonight I had a fish miss my top water about 30' from the boat. The lake is very dark and I didn't see it...
