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.

 Grover Cleveland Fishing

Calvin Coolidge Fishing

  • CALVIN COOLIDGE

Herbert Hoover Fishing

  • HERBERT HOOVER

Eisenhower Fishing

  • DWIGHT EISENHOWER

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.
