Joe Fox of River Falls got this 22-inch brown trout to fall for a nightcrawler while fishing with his son, Don, and some friends on the banks of Lake George shortly before 6 a.m. Saturday during the statewide fishing opener.
A Florida man and his Wisconsin son won't be fishing for a few years and the pair will pay nearly $6,000 in fines for overbagging fish from Sawyer County's Lake Chetac. A DNR press release details the investigation.
Alyssa Ellefson of River Falls, left, holds up her first trophy flathead catfish after catching the beast on the Mississippi River near Red Wing, Minn., Friday night, Aug. 5 as her fiancé, River Falls firefighter Mike Nicholson, gives a thumbs-up. The couple (Ellefson and Nicholson) are planning a May 2012 wedding.
Many years ago a friend and I drove from home in Ohio to Wisconsin to look at colleges. Taking advantage of the week off for college exploration in our senior year of high school, we first went to the French River in Ontario, Canada, to do some fishing. We canoed into a nice lake and had a good time catching walleyes and northern pike.
Caddisflies are small insects that have fascinating adaptations to life in fresh water. Caddisflies belong to the order Trichoptera, closely related to butterflies and moths in the order Lepidoptera. Many species live in the Kinnickinnic and Rush Rivers, providing food for trout and excitement for trout fishers.
For good friends Randy Johnson and Jim Hunt, Monday morning was supposed to be spent floating on the St. Croix River and catching walleyes.
Instead, the two Farmington men escaped tragedy, then spent the new few hours watching from shore as crews fished their truck and trailer out of the water.
On Thursday evening, June 17, Brian Klawitter of Trophy Catfishing and Sturgeon Adventures, located in Lakeland, Minn., took Mike and Mallory McCarty of River Falls cat fishing on the Mississippi River. At 1 a.m. Friday, Mike held on as a 32-lb. "river monster" fought for its freedom and was eventually caught and released.
