Milwaukee river

Spring Swinging

Hit the Milwaukee with Adam a few weeks back and we experienced something out of the ordinary…great fishing.  Even though the water was high, cold, and slowly rising all day from snow melt, the Steelhead were in and on the grab…bigly.  Water clarity was great and very few anglers were on the water giving us plenty of … Continue reading »

Boats & Beasts

I’ve been quiet on the blog front for awhile and a lot has happened since my last post.  I got married back in August and wedding planning took over my life for the better part of 3 months.  Truth be told, I probably spent more time planning my Bachelor’s Party.  I spent a lot of weekend … Continue reading »

The Early Spring Swing

With the early lock-up this Winter and late thaw this Spring, Cabin Fever has been all too real.  Not to mention, I’ve been stuck in mandatory training at work the last 6 weeks away from home due to my promotion, so I’ve been unable to sneak out and fish.  I was worried about the water … Continue reading »
