Presidential Election 2008 & Fishing in Wisconsin

It’s often been said that one shouldn’t mix politics and real estate.  I couldn’t agree more.  However, there’s an issue that both parties can agree on: ‘Fishing in Wisconsin is fun.’  Here’s a look back on some of the former Presidents of the United States that have sought a break from the rigors of the office and found respite on the waters of northern Wisconsin: Grover Cleveland, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover and Dwight Eisenhower.

Herbert Hoover Fishing


Eisenhower Fishing


For the record, it’s well know that Ulysse S. Grant also fished in northern Wisconsin.  If anyone comes across an image of Grant holding a rod please let me know.

    Still haven’t found a photograph of U.S. Grant fishing, but did discover some facts that all anglers can appreciate: Fisheries conservation in the United States dates back 137 years when President Grant created the U.S. Fish Commission, the precursor of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Concerned about the decline of fisheries, President Grant and Congress created the Fish Commission in 1871.
