In Presque Isle, WI, the Alpine Resort is garnering some excitement of their own. National Geographic magazine featured the resort in its May/June issue as one of 10 American family resorts made for reconnecting. Of the resort, the article says:

Set in far northern Wisconsin on a pristine lake amid towering white pines, this down-home resort, with its collection of circa 1920s log cabins complete with knotty pine interiors, is a real throwback. These days, owners Kim and Tim Bowler and their ten-year-old daughter, Cameil, host angling lessons off the dock and stargazing around the campfire (look for the northern lights). It can be quiet in the North Woods. “The only sounds you hear in the morning are the loons,” notes Kim. For some, that’s exactly the type of alarm clock they want.

JacksFirstFishFull disclosure:  I don’t fish.

Putting the words Wisconsin & Fish into the same sentence to me means three things:
1.  Fish Creek (great place to vacation in Door County)
2.  Fish Fry (that Friday night dinner phenomenon)
3.  Fish Boil (again in Door County, but this time it’s great food)

However, I have family who adore the sport of fishing and so I try to remain open-minded.  For those of you anglers who’ve been awaiting the official start of the season, mark you calendars for May 2nd as the Governor’s Fishing Opener.  In anticipation we’ve assembled the following resources…

  3. That fish is too big, throw ‘em back!
  4. Take me to the shore, so that I may use the restroom.
  5. The one I caught was a lot smaller than yours.
  6. Sure, you can have the last nightcrawler!
  7. Fishing is so bad today, I’d rather be at work.
  8. I’ll ask my mother-in-law to go along fishing next week.
  9. I can’t make the tournament – I have tickets to the ballet!
