ELTON - An afternoon of fishing might be your way of relaxing on a hot summer day.

But for brothers Terry and Tim Winkle, it's business, and their entire world revolves around fish.

Three generations of Winkel family have worked the ponds at Silver Moon Springs.

Brothers Tim and Terry took over the property in 1977.

The brothers sell trout all over the Wisconsin. Tim works mostly with fish on the farm. Terry takes their products off to farmers markets during the summer.

"I love dealing with people. I love meeting new people every day, and every day I meet somebody new," said Terry. "Then when the regulars come back and they tell you how much they enjoy it, it makes a guy feel real good."

Trout find happy habitats in the fresh water spring that flows into their property.

Tim says they're proud to have healthy trout.

"The last time we tested, our PCB level was almost nothing- down to zero. So, the fish are very healthy. They're raised in very clean, good water," said Tim.

You can visit Silver Moon Springs go fee fishing. They also sell smoked salmon and trout filets.
