I have loads of experience from hunting all over the world. I read the regulations around here and its sad. However, I want to get wet. Who wants to go?

There are several forum members in WI. Try browsing the Buddy/Regions of the forum under USA. Post a new thread there if you like.

It would also be worth searching the forum I tend to use Google, e.g. "DeeperBlue.com (Wisconsin,WI)".

I lived in north Illinois for several years and have happy memories of Wisconsin, which reminded me of my rural roots in England. My interests back then were rock climbing and triathlon rather than spearing tho'.

:) Lovely area. I swam in Lake Geneva 4 or 5 times, in the triathlon. It started & finished at Fontana , if I recall correctly. One the most aggressive/ physical swims because of the weird course shape, people swam into and over each other much more than normal, which made it tiring. The run, up around the hill top observatory felt a lot harder than the flat Chicago triathlon too. A good race to finish the season tho.

I don't the visibility being good but perhaps that's because of all the people splashing around.

I recall a discussion some years ago about spearing at Devil's Lake. A bit further to travel?
