With Spring Turkey season just around the corner, Henry USA sent us a video now posted on our homepage that I know you’ll get a kick out of. The point is though, young hunters and smaller hunters won’t get a kick out of it at all. The wait for a gobbler can be too long to question whether or not you’re packing the right turkey load when he does show up (Dick Ellis Photo) Henry wanted to test the viability of their beautiful ...

    Day 8 and Day 9 Results — July 28-29, 2012 A breezy weekend made for a bumpy ride at times. There was a strong north current, swells and chop Saturday and a switch to the same from the south Sunday. That made finding the right speed challenging, but those who figured it out scored some nice catches. Some stuck in the 90- to 120-foot depths, ...

    Day 7 Results — Friday, July 27, 2012 A rough day wave-wise Friday kept fishing pressure down in many areas, and it showed in the weigh-ins. With fewer fishermen on the water, there were just three changes in the top 30. The day’s largest “king” went 19.6 pounds. Fish registration ends at 5 p.m. Sunday. Anglers can still g...

    Fishing Guide Scott Bretting from River Rock Inn and Bait Shop, 715-682-3232 reports: IT’S HOT.. That pretty much sums up the weather the past week here in our area. Also, sums up the fishing!! We have had almost a week of stable pressure and the fish have responded well, giving anglers all sorts of good times out here on the Bay and into th...

    Day 6 Results — Thursday, July 26, 2012 Two-thirds of the way through the 30th annual K/D Salmon Tournament — the largest summer salmon fishing contest in the Great Lakes — it appears there’s been some big fish movement into the waters most anglers have been trolling. Four new top 10 fish were recorded, including trophy chi...

    Day 5 Results — Wednesday, July 25, 2012 Second straight day without a 20-pounder coming to certified scales, but Day 5 of the 30th annual K/D Salmon Tournament — a day marred by strong southeast winds that kept boaters on shore in many areas — did see a pair of Washington Island fish move into the top 20. With more than $40,000...

    Day 4 Results — Tuesday, July 24, 2012 No 20-pounders were brought to the scales on Tuesday, Day 4 of the K/D Salmon Tournament, but there were four 19-pound-plus specimens. Deb Samuelson’s 19.63-pounder at Algoma was big enough to move into 12th spot. A small craft advisory was in the forecast for Wednesday. After that, outside of an...

    Day 3 Results — Monday, July 23, 2012 The Washington Island area continued to produce big fish Monday, Day 3 of the 9-day K/D Salmon Tournament. Two of the chinooks were larger than 21 pounds, giving the northern Door/island area five of the top 10 fish early on. Sam Siemenski said his 21.29-pounder grabbed a Moonshine spoon about 60 feet...

In addition, tentative information co...

    The local anglers have been catching some nice sized Northern’s at the Hot Pond. Fishing right off the docks has been good and the Smallies are biting all the time!!!Panfish have been plentiful on the inland waters. If you are coming into the Chequamegon Bay Area for the many upcoming events, take time to call the local fishing guides and giv...

    We left dock at 9:30 and returned at 12 with 15 fish, mostly 10-12 pound King Salmon with a few Cohos, and a few Rainbows mixed in.

Green, glow...

    By Bill Schultz During the past 16 years, I’ve spent over 160 days chasing smallmouth bass in Door County.  I’ve been rewarded with catching and releasing almost 5,000. Like many who fish Door County smallies or lake smallies in general, I’ve used many lures, but have also tried to keep it simple.  I believe I’ve...

    Fishing off of the port of Sheboygan has been good when the weather cooperates and lets us fish. There are two locations that are producing fish. The harbor mouth area in 20-40 feet of water and straight out and south of Sheboygan in 120-150 feet of water. Out in front of the harbor browns and kings are being caught on standard size stinger spoons ...

    No doubt, in most historical accounts, the Chinook is the undisputed King of the salmonoids. But, here on Lake Superior, another story is unfolding, and it looks as if the King has just been dethroned. That’s right, here on Chequamegon Bay the Coho is the new King on the block. And for good reasons - there are LOTS of them and the fishing for...

    By Dick Ellis Professional Guide Aron Kastern with an 80-pound lake sturgeon caught during the spawning season that continues into June on Chequamegon Bay near Ashland.  Kastern also expects trout, northern pike, walleye and any number of gamefish species when targeting sturgeon. Chequamegon Bay seemed tame enough as Pr...

    What a difference a few weeks make.  Tony Maniaci sent us a photo of a big brown taken from the Milwaukee Harbor by his buddy Ryan Kaltenbach March 3.  Not only is the fish awesome, the weather contrast is stark as we post the story on March 22. Kaltenbach and his fishing partner Todd Patke were throwing body baits behind the Marcus Amph...

    By Captain Brian Settele, Fish Chasers Guide Service What an awesome weekend of fishing Lake Michigan out of the Milwaukee harbor for Lake Trout. On the weekend from March 16 through the 18th we caught well over 70 lake trout. We caught most of our fish jigging and trolling outside the harbor. Most of the fish were in the 10 to 13 pound range wi...

    by Dick Ellis Ten minutes into our roadblock carefully set to bring in and personally question any brown trout or Great Lakes rainbows that might be traveling on the Root River, Dave Sura’s rod doubled over in a kind of silent scream; the first battle of the morning was on. Early indications said that the heavyweight fight could go the dista...
