  1. The Professor and I fished the Wisconsin Opener on the big pond in two different boats. There was triple the number of boats that we typically see. Largely due to the late spring and inland lakes that are still frozen. This last weekend parts of northern Wisconsin had a foot and a half of snow.

    As it turned out, the weather was pleasant and the fish were cooperating for the most part. It will be interesting to think about the historical weather patterns and how this will impact fishing conditions. The professor and I are very much looking forward to “trout-o-rama” which should still be in full swing. We also look forward to harvesting some of those tasty bull perch that the perchmaster is going to leave for us this year.
