It’s deja vu in Wisconsin as fishing opener nears

The Wisconsin fishing opener is six days away, and people were still ice-fishing this past week. Many anglers think most lakes will remain ice-covered when the season opens Saturday. That was the case last year, too. “Everyone around here — we’re all grumpy and gloomy,” said Steve Genson at Hayward Bait and Tackle in Hayward. “Last year was pretty good. Tourism here was good. We just lost a whole month.”
