Aquatic Nuisance Species spreading causing problems
It's been a rough summer; I could be complaining about the weather, but that matter is trivial in comparison to the recent reports showing that aquatic invaders, commonly grouped under the term Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS), continue to forge ahead into new territories. Month by...

Memories of college class still relevant
The passing years tend to dull memories somewhat. This is no less true with our schooling as well. I probably couldn't pass a statistics test...

The challenge of nighttime Muskie fishing
There's nothing more primal in our human psyche than fear - or at least a healthy level of cautious respect - for that which we cannot see when the light of day has faded. The haunting cry of a loon at sunset is quickly replaced by the hoot of an owl, filling the late summer night...

Muskie fishing proved to be unsuccesful venture
Just five casts into Saturday morning, I figured the weekend would have one of two outcomes: either bigger muskies would certainly follow the one in my hand, or I just pre-spent my next 995 casts on the 20-incher with the treble of my homemade pink-and-brass bucktail in its mouth....

Life jacket lesson, your most important piece of equipment
