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.

"Land surveying in itself is a basis for a lot of things in our country," says Vilas County Land Information/Mapping Department GIS Technician Tony Jones. "It's a chance to work outside, it's a chance to work with your hands, it's also a professional level position. You get to work with mathematics, and architecture, and history, and law."
