Natashia, did you know that the Wisconsin River is open all year for all species except Muskie, Trout, and Sturgeon. There is a list of waters that are open all year on the DNR Web site. Some of them may be in your area.
Since I figured this out by actually reading the pamplets that they give you, my season has never closed. I'm not so ready anymore to go out on opening day and play bumper boats with everyone else.
