This country is crazy about crappies! Did you know that crappies are second only to bass as the most sought-after fish in the United States? They are fun to catch, fight hard and are incredible table fare.
Wolf Pack Adventures' very own Jerrad Kalmerton and partner Brett Koenig took second place honors at the Cabela's Masters Walleye Circuit tournament event in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, May 8-9, 2015.
They weighed 39.00 pounds on Day 1 which put them in second place. Watch this video as Jerrad prepares to head out on the morning of Day 2 looking for another big bag.
Fishing out of the port of Sheboygan has been good! Captain Jerrad Kalmerton has been catching some brown trout, lake trout, and a few salmon as well from our 21' Lund. These fish are being caught in shallow water close to the river mouths. Finding warm water while trolling spoons, and crankbaits has been a good way to land some fish. Our two boats Wolf Pack I (a 38' Wellcraft) and Wolf Pack II (a 28' Baja Cruiser) are going to be launched next week and will be ready to fish!
With the 2015 Wisconsin opener coming this weekend, the walleye fishing has been nothing short of fantastic! Captains Jerrad Kalmerton and Tyler Chisholm have been hitting some hot action on both the Winnebago and Green Bay systems. Trolling and casting crankbaits, and jigging plastics, have been very productive ways to catch fish. Some true trophy walleye fishing is upon us these next weeks. Now is a great time to catch the fish of a lifetime, and add a few to the freezer as well.
Recently, Pat had the opportunity to visit Gaston's White River Resort and spend some time trout fishing with other outdoor communicators from throughout the country. He followed that up with turkey hunting in Holly Springs, Mississippi.
It's that time of year again. Turkey hunting! As I'm preparing my gear, I'm reminded of a handy item that hunters may overlook. Frabill shelter lights (model #1610) are perfect in the turkey blind!
I always have mine handy for early-morning set-up. It velcros snug to the frame of my blind and I can pivot the light pod in any direction so I'm able to get my equipment in order without fumbling around in darkness.
Walleyes have started their spawning as water temps are just getting to their low end spawning temperatures. The males are abundant and it won't be long before even more females will be caught.
The recent rains and warm weather have pushed some brown and rainbow trout into the rivers. These fish are preparing to spawn and are a lot of fun to catch on light spinning tackle. Finding the fish can be tough with the low water and lack of current but try floating spawn and casting crank baits and spinners to land a few of these trout.
With the ice melting off of lakes and rivers, the walleyes have started to make their move into spawn. Fishing the rivers gives you great access to open water this early in the year - and a great pre-spawn walleye bite!
There are five species of wild turkey targeted throughout the United States, and many hunters will tell you that turkey hunting adventures are some of the most heart-pumping, breathtaking moments in their memory banks. Where I live in Wisconsin, turkey hunting is an opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts to get back to what they live for after being cooped up all winter. Beyond that, the unique sights and sounds of watching the world come alive are never more evident that in the spring - get out there!
