Sports Show

Just got back from the sports show. Amazing how much it has changed/gotten smaller over the years.

Didn't see much from the other local guides. There was some talk of heading up to the greener pastures of Green Bay, and I wonder how many guys have done that.

Stopped by to see the Viking Outpost booth. Viking is a fly-in outfitter in Red Lake, Ontario. I've been on multiple trips with Viking over the years. I recommend them if you're heading up that way.

Here's my son Shannon with Hugh. Check them out at

Open water!

Reports starting to appear on some of the forums from people fishing below the Dells Dam. Plenty of room to get the boat in there, but be careful, conditions can change very quickly this time of year.

Also hearing trickles of information about fishing at the Jefferson and Indianford Dams on the Rock River. Ice on the main river is still thick, but there's open water for shore fisherman below both dams.

John Gillespie filmed a show in the Milwaukee Harbor this week, imagine it will be a zoo out there this weekend.

Reminder: Gamefish season is closed on inland lakes until the first Saturday in May.

I'll have more for you next week as I hear back from the people who have been heading out.
