Most lakes are seeing active largemouth bass and pike in the 8-15 ft. weeds. On Sugar Lake, Maple Lake, Indian Lake, and Clearwater you’ll see sunfish in 6-10 ft. and suspended crappies off the deep weeds. Using crawlers and fathead minnows you’ll catch a few walleyes just off the weed edges at...
Hunting is popular throughout North America. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said that 40 percent of the population of the United States ages 16 and older participated in wildlife-related activities in 2016, the most recent year for data. Hunting also is popular in Canada, where it's difficult...
Hunters and non-hunters alike are familiar with bright orange coats, hats, vests, and other gear that is worn during hunting season.

Various activities, including hiking, fishing and kayaking, afford people a chance to experience the great outdoors. But there's just something about spending all day in nature and then sleeping under the stars that...
Most lakes are producing some nice pike and bass along the weedlines at 15-20 ft. Clearwater Lake, Lake Sylvia, Pleasant Lake, and Sugar Lake are providing a variety of panfish at a depth of 10-15 ft. There are reports of walleyes being caught using minnows or crawlers on Clearwater Lake at 15-24...

On Pleasant, Clearwater, Sylvia, Sugar, Maple, and Indian Lakes, you’ll find sunfish if you fish during the day and in the evening you should see some crappies, most of which are located in the 10-12 ft....
