All this in Wisconsin for only 20.00!

 For 20.00  US Dollars?

 Another season is about to start and  Wisconsin anglers need to buy a new licence starting  today if you haven't already. Are we lucky here or what! Twenty dollars and a ten dollar stamp and 
anglers can tromp 2,989 trout streams stretching more than 10,500 miles.. We have the most liberal wading law (keep your feet wet) and you can go anywhere.  If your fishing lakes you can choose more than 10,000 lakes to enjoy. Fishing the great lakes require  a 10.00 great lakes stamp. We do see boat  launch fees increase but for the most part they are reasonable across the state and some counties are still enjoying free  launch programs. Are we still producing great fishing in Wisconsin?   The answer is HELL Yes!
The new state record brown trout caught July 16, 2010 from Lake Michigan
The 41-pound, 8-ounce brown trout Roger Hellen of Franksville caught in Lake Michigan waters north of Racine is now a Wisconsin state record fish. Hellen caught the fish while competing in the Salmon-A-Rama tournament. The fish measured 40.6 inches long and weighed 41 pounds 8 ounces on a certified scale at a local meat market. The fish bettered the previous record by almost 5 pounds. The previous record was a 36 pounds 8.9 ounces, 40.5- inch fish caught August 23, 2004, in Lake Michigan near Kewaunee. 

 This year Wisconsin also went to a one license day license!  Take a buddy with you and see if he likes it. $10.00 for non resident $8.00 for residents. What a great deal for people visiting Wisconsin on business and only have  a day to spend. Tell me what is costs to fish in your state or country!
Come enjoy Wisconsin
