Lots of fishing and even preparations for fall hunting going on out there in Wisconsin’s Big Outside during the Dog Days of summer. Mike Martino with a 20" Coho taken on a silver and black trolling spoon in 150' of water. The Coho was tough...but Mike was tougher! My first revelation after talking to friends and family is that you don’t always need guides, or the biggest boat on the water to take advantage of Wisconsin’...

        July 10, 2018 Carolyn from Anglers All reports: The water in the Bay is clearing up greatly and the sediment is settling! Even in the dirty water the bite has been good inside the Bay. The water is really starting to clear up nicely! Walleye anglers are trolling over the shallow weed-beds using crawler harnesses or stick-baits. Fis...

    July 3, 2018Billy from Anglers All reports: The water in the Bay is slowly starting to clear up and fishing is good. The Sand Cut area continues to be clearing up nicely and anglers are catching Trout using trolling spoons and Walleye using Crawler Harnesses. Boat landings in Ashland are all open at this time!

    July 2, 2018 Steve Suman   The forecast for most of this week includes warm (to warmer) temperatures and clear skies – except for chances of showers Wednesday, July 4... Well, of course. That is only one day out of the week, however, and “sometimes” the forecasts are wrong. It is summer – get out ...

    The walleye bite continues to be very good in central Wisconsin along with a pretty good crappie bite as well.  We have also been picking up a few nice pike and bass.  Water temperatures continue to hover around that 80 degree mark making it tough for musky fishing but a few guys are targeting them early and late in the day and they are p...

    Fishing: Muskie fishing was excellent this past week. Our groups produced some nice muskies and first for 2 anglers. The action during the day has been on bucktails, suicks, and dawgs. Evening fish on top water and large crank baits. Muskies have been located in weed beds and weed edges. Stable conditions should continue to provide steady acti...

    The warm temperatures are really heating things up and not just for us but the fishing as well.  We have had a great week fishing for walleyes and crappies along with a few nice pike and bass. The water temperatures are in the upper 70 degree range but this upcoming weekend’s warm temperatures could very well push water temperatures into...

    June 25, 2018 Steve Suman Musky Fest weekend participants enjoyed nearly perfect weather, without a hint of rain or thunderstorms, which was quite a change from the previous weekend. This week, look for a mix of weather from wet to hot by the weekend, but with pleasant days intermixed.   “Thunderstorms a weekend ago raised lake level...

    By John Luthens For a beginner, the dainty art of fly fishing can rapidly degenerate into a tangled snarl of confusion before the first cast is even arched over the water. Leaders, tippets and knots; sinking line, floating line, wet flies, dry flies, nymphs, streamers and goofy-sounding insects – all of it running together into a tiny crossw...

    It has been a tough week with all the rain we received but we were able to get out and put together a pattern that worked.   Water conditions went from normal levels and clear to downright flood stage and muddy. In addition to the high muddy water as we moved to later in the week we were greeted with a high pressure system and a northeast...

    Mike Yurk Much is written and talked about by bass fishermen concerning natural structure and cover in lakes. But what about man-made objects that draw and hold fish to them? I would guess more bass are taken by anglers off docks, boat lifts and other items man has put in and on the water. Docks and boat lifts like this young fisherman is appro...

    Captain Dave Duwe How are your kids at Minecraft?  Do they watch a lot of Spongebob?  As adults it’s frustrating to watch our kids amuse themselves with electronics. We never had technology at our fingertips and had to go out and make our own fun. I don’t want to ponder about the good ole days for long, but I remember a time ...

    Steve Suman   Severe weather in the North Woods made for a rough weekend. This week’s forecast (should it hold true) shows a reprieve and some very pleasant weather, at least until possible showers Friday. If you plan to travel in the area this week, particularly north of Hayward, check ahead for road closures and detours.   &ld...

    As I sit here writing this we just received about 3 inches of rain in central Wisconsin.  I can’t wait to see what it does to the conditions on the area lakes and rivers but it sure can’t hurt. We have been dry for quite a while and some much needed rain is a blessing.  Water temperatures as of this morning were right around 7...
