Results of the 2017 Bob Ellis Row Trolling Classic will be shared in this space next week. We’re waiting on a photo of the winning fish. The Classic was total fun, with several fish caught and released during the one-day event, and several stories (lies) ‘released’ by fisherman at the awards dinner afterward. Until next week, the Ellis Family wishes to thank Master of Ceremonies Kevin Wallenfang, Geoff Crandall, Steve Reinstra...

    Spring is over. It is now summer. The weather is turning hot and humid. We have been looking forward to this ever since winter started some six months ago.Especially for us who live in the far north, summers are short so we need to make the most of them. Get out the grill and turn on Brewers baseball. Bratwurst and baseball. What could be more summ...

      It has been a fantastic week here in central Wisconsin.  Water temperatures are in the mid 70 degree range and the fishing has been phenomenal.  Walleye action has topped the list with not only numbers of nice fish but some real dandies taken too. The crappie bite has been running a close second with bass, bluegills, pike and musk...

    The mid summer patterns are in full swing.  The bite on Lake Geneva has been very good.  The best bites on the lake are Lake Trout and Largemouth bass.  After the 4th of July weekend, the boat traffic has dropped off a bit. As consistent with summer patterns on Lake Geneva, the largemouth bass have slid to the outside edge of the we...

    Scott Bretting from River Rock reports: Small Mouth are now done spawning and getting into their “Summer warm weather mode”.  As we see the temps getting warmer, we will see more fish on top water. Fishing for Smallies could be a little tough now because of the hatches of natural bait. Trolling for Walleye's in Chequamegon Bay at ...

    As most people already know, Delavan Lake received a tremendous amount of rain over the past week and all public access to the lake has been closed.  This really limited the fishing for all but shore anglers or those lucky enough to live on the lake.  The water level  is the highest I have seen in 25 years.  This amount of rain ...

    Lake Geneva is in its standard mid-summer patterns.  All the rain last week slowed the fishing slightly, however the water clarity on the lake remains very good. Largemouth bass are in the deep weedline.  The best depth is 15-18 ft of water.  This is slightly shallower than normal.  The best approach has been drop shotting 4 in...

    Hopefully this is the start to a real summer for our anglers.  Some stable, summer-like weather will hopefully start putting fish more into their typical summer patterns. Crappie:  Good-Very Good – Anglers finding good numbers and very good sized Crappies (a 15”er topped the charts this weekend) using 2” ripple shad on ...

    The summer patterns are in full swing on Delavan lake.  Over the course of the last week, the fishing has been consistently very good.   The best bites on the lake continue to be bluegills, largemouth bass and crappies. Largemouth bass have finally moved out of the shallow weeds and are now positioned on the deep weed lines in 15-19...

    It has been a banner week in Wisconsin for big muskies with several over the 50 inch mark!  The rains have succeeded and the water conditions have leveled out. Water temperatures have finally reached the mid-70 degree mark and the fish are liking it a lot. We had several encounters with big Muskie this past week including Scott Lewandowsky ...

    By John Luthens:  I was first led astray to No Man’s Pond in that in-between season when the promise of magic water floats around the edges of a fly fisherman’s vision like a hidden diamond, but there are still enough slushy patches beneath the pines to dampen the spirits.  Peering from the morning window of my suburban home...

    Fishing has been very steady on Lake Geneva over the last week.  I’ve consistently caught both largemouth and smallmouth in the same water depth, plus there is an ample supply of pan fish and rock bass to be caught. Largemouth bass have been very active.  They can be caught using two different methods.  The first is a drop sho...

    Delavan Lake continues to be a go-to lake in SE Wisconsin.  Fishing has been fantastic.  With the 4th of July holiday, the lake saw an extreme amount of fishing pressure.  The best suggestion is to fish early in the morning as the boat ramp gets really busy by about 6:30 a.m. and fishing is almost by 11:00 a.m.  with the activit...

    After another week of cold and at times rainy weather we’re finally getting some sun and warmth.  Following an end to June that felt like October, afternoon highs in the upper 70’s to low 80’s are starting to draw water temps up to closer to summer time norms   Largemouth Bass:  Poor-Good – Cold clear mornin...

    Here we go again… It has been another week full of rain and below normal temperatures.  Water levels are still very high and fast which are creating unseasonable conditions.  Water temperatures continue to remain in the upper 60 degree range triggering fish into what I would normally consider an early fall pattern.  Despite...
