Reflecting on memories from the Northwest Sportshow with 2024 show this week in Minnesota

Three decades ago – three! – my dad, uncle, and I were at the Northwest Sportshow. This was a big deal to me because my family had just moved from Detroit Lakes, Minn., where we lived on a lake, to Bloomington, where we did not live on a lake.
The show was a highlight of the year for me. There was new fishing tackle to see and I had the opportunity to meet some of the people I watched on TV.

Joe Albert: There’s fishing… and then there’s fishing in Alaska

Aside from seeing “The Goonies” when it was still in theaters in Anchorage, I have pretty much no recollection of my family’s first trip to Alaska in 1985. But my dad caught a big king salmon, which he had mounted, and as the years went on and my love of fishing deepened, it stood as a constant reminder of what was possible in that faraway land.

Will 2024 be the year you go electric on the water?

You don’t have to look too far into the past to find a time when anglers who wanted to move their boats quietly on the water either drifted with the wind or used paddles to propel them.
The advent of the electric trolling motor, and then its widespread use, changed that, providing anglers the opportunity to quietly power their boats from the bow or stern. Perhaps it all makes sense, then, that the next step in the evolution of watercraft is electric-powered boats.

Interested in buying hunting land? Here’s how to locate your dream of a game-rich paradise

Among the many benefits of being a hunter in the United States is the ability to find public land relatively close to home on which to target deer, ducks, grouse, pheasants, and other game and non-game species.
But for some people, owning their own piece of hunting property is the dream. It may not be a simple proposition – simplicity, of course, is relative when it comes to buying any type of property – but people who plan ahead and know exactly what they’re looking for stand the best chance for success.

Previewing the nation’s biggest bass fishing tournaments in 2023

Open-water fishing for many anglers remains on the distant horizon, a dream tempered by frozen lakes, piles of snow, and bone-chilling cold. Some anglers, though, are leaving winter behind and heading south to chase bass and claim their part of the hundreds of thousands of dollars that are up for grabs.

Minnesota hunters, biologists seeking answers to lackluster ruffed grouse season

Grand Rapids, Minn. — When the DNR announced last July that spring ruffed grouse drumming counts had increased 57 percent statewide, hunters were understandably giddy at the prospects of what they’d encounter in the woods during the fall. The season began slowly, which isn’t unusual when there are a lot of leaves on the trees.
