Northwoods Spotlight - Joe Bucher shares fishing tips - April 9Submitted: 04/09/2014
Story By Marisa Silvas


TOMAHAWK - He hosts a fishing show, is a hall of fame angler and has his own line of lures. Joe Bucher is the ultimate outdoorsman. Last weekend he held a free fishing seminar in Tomahawk.

"This is one of the things I enjoy the most," Bucher explains. "If I'm not fishing, it's fun talking fishing."

More than 40 anglers came to hear Bucher's fishing tips. It seems all of them were there for different reasons.

"I watch his show all the time ("Fishing with Joe Bucher") and use a lot of his lures," Mike Biever of Tomahawk said. "I'm a big musky fisherman so I like to come hear what he says about muskies."


"My husband and I live on a lake so we go fishing," Lynn Stangler of Tomahawk adds. "I have a problem setting my hook and he's always teasing me about it. So I thought I could learn a little bit about how to set the hook."

The long winter racked up the second highest snowfall in the history of the area, but Bucher says there is a silver lining - as far as fishing goes.

"I think the biggest thing we can look forward to is water levels are going to be better," Bucher explains.

Bucher has traveled the world to fish, but says there's no place like home.

"I live in Northern Wisconsin because I love the fishing here," Bucher adds. "I can go 25 miles in any direction and I can fish 10 different species of fish."

You can catch "Fishing with Joe Bucher" Sunday nights at midnight here on Newswatch 12.

Wisconsin's wolf hunt may soon come to an endSubmitted: 11/28/2014

MADISON - Wisconsin's wolf hunt may soon come to an end.

Hunters are four wolves shy of Wisconsin's statewide kill limit, throwing the prospect of using dogs in this year's hunt into doubt.

State tallies show hunters had taken 146 wolves as of Thursday, just short of the 150 wolf limit.

The 2012 Republican law that created Wisconsin's wolf hunt allows hunters to use dogs to trail wolves beginning the first day after the end of the nine-day gun deer season.
