Is elegant fish a season-ender?
space
As far as weather is concerned, this is a very difficult time of year to predict.

Those with outdoor experience in the Langlade County area know there is no such thing as a dependable month of March.

While some sugar bush operations in this region are cooking sap, others haven’t even tapped trees it has been too cold. Today the 8 a.m. temperature was 18 degrees, but when the stiff wind was figured in, the chill reading hovered in the area of two or three degrees.

A check back to the pages of earlier editions of the Antigo Daily Journal show the readings have been all over the place.

On March 26, 2007, the temperature was a summery 72 degrees. But the very next year, the low reading on March 6 was a frigid 20 degrees below zero.

One of the more war mer spells came to the Antigo area in 2012, when the reading on March 12 was 50 degrees, moving to 54 the next day and 72 on the 14. After dipping into the 60s for a day, it was back in the middle 70s during a four-day spell.

With a reading of 20 at noon today, and the winds pushing the chill reading down to 5 degrees, the 75 of a mere six years ago seems very far away.

At least this area is missing the 12 to 18 inches of snow being predicted for areas of the East Coast in the next day or so. You simply cannot depend on the weather in March.

Marissa Hartman and Taylor Packard took advantage of some excellent packing snow to create a truly impressive walleye. The two love to fish and admit to a bit of spring fever. It took the two 4 1/2 hours to complete the behemoth.
