Wisconsin – Free Fishing Weekend: June 1 – 2, 2013

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Yes, it’s true over the weekend of June 1st through the 2nd you can fish anywhere in Wisconsin for free. Naturally, since we are a Wisconsin (and Michigan) vacation property real estate company we are encouraging people to head up north, look at a lake lot, lake access property, river acreage, river access land or wooded stream property that is for sale, and try out the fishing. You might land the big property deal at the same time you hook a trophy catch.

Here’s the Wisconsin DNR summary:

“Fish anywhere in Wisconsin without a license or trout stamp on Free Fishing Weekend. This includes all inland waters and Wisconsin’s side of the Great Lakes and Mississippi River. Other fishing rules apply, such as limits on the number and size of fish you can keep and any seasons when you must release certain fish species. So, pack up the family or call your friends and head to the water for fishing fun.”

Here’s the direct link to the Wisconsin DNR Free Fishing Weekend Web Page.

Wisconsin Fishing Season 2011

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

Opening day for Wisconsin fishing is traditionally the first Saturday in May, May 7th during 2011. Hook and line fishing for many species of fish on many Wisconsin waters begins the first Saturday in May. However, to better manage Wisconsin fisheries, season dates are often specific to the species of fish as well as the water body.

Here’s the link to the Wisconsin DNR 2011 Fishing Season Web Pages. Have a fun and safe time on enjoying Wisconsin’s beautiful lakes and rivers.

Heading Up North to Deer Camp

Friday, November 19th, 2010

Every year there’s a spectacular migration along the highways and byways of Wisconsin . . . it’s the annual migration of hunters heading north for Wisconsin’s nine day White-tail deer gun season.  Here’s a photo of what it looks like from the Loon Lake Realty office on the Friday evening before opening day.

200 Miles of Brats

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

You know summer has finally arrived in Wisconsin when the wind carries the fragrant smell of freshly cut lawns, and brats on the grill.  For those of you not familiar with this Wisconsin delicacy, a brat (rhymes with hot) is a German style sausage served on a bun, a bratwurst.

This past weekend at the World’s Largest Brat Fest, held annually in Madison,  189,432 bratwursts were consumed, a Brat Fest record.  That amounts to 37,886 pounds of brats, or over 200 miles of brats if ‘linked’ (pun intended) end to end.

On your next drive up north just imagine a line of brats strung down the center-line guiding you home.

Land Rush

We’re putting together a fall property sale and using this image as the web page header and on the real estate flier. It’s from a mural done for the government in the 1930′s depicting the great western land run. Look at that guy on the bike!

Update, October 27, 2007:  The Fall Land Rush is now on.
