Follow your plan, go prepared, watch the sky – and remember that “sometimes” forecasts miss the mark.   “Fall col...

    What could go wrong? By Wayne Morgenthaler Trout season starts out in May for catch and keep.  This is a wonderful time to fish, as the weeds along the creeks are all knocked down.  Now fast forward to September.  My buddy says let’s go to one of his favorite holes, and we will try to get one of those big browns.  I am a...

    We are starting a gradual warming trend which should improve the bite over the next week or so.  It’s a bit too early to get into the fall patterns and the summer bite has been slower than average with the cooler temps this warm up will help significantly.       Northern Pike action has been improving. ...

    As the water has been cooling the fishing action has been improving almost daily.  The fish that weren’t biting last week are starting to feed.  The best bite on the lake remains smallmouth bass and rock bass. Smallmouth bass are being caught in 22-25 ft of water.  They are on deep water structure.  The best bait has been...

    Rarely talked about in walleye world, fluorocarbon line can make or break a limit By David A. Rose Look up the definition of “fickle” and you’ll find: likely to change, especially due to caprice, irresolution, or instability; casually changeable. And this makes that one word the perfect depiction for walleyes. Despite their pic...

    Cooler than normal temperatures combined with rain have hit us hard this past week, dropping water temperatures drastically. In addition to the cool temperatures we have had a full a moon phase going on.  The cooler temperatures and full moon have done wonders to the fishing but have really hurt the hunters.  With that said we have had ve...

    Despite one nice, warm, sunny day – Labor Day Sunday, water temps starting to drop.  Cooling temps a good thing as we get into fall mode. Musky:  Good – Still best on bucktails and big spinner baits.  Seven inch twitch baits, small jerks and top-water still effective.  Action down from last week, but still good...

    The cool August days have now turned into cool September days.  Fishing on Geneva has been a bit more challenging than normal.  Some days the fishing patterns are easily identified but with any weather or wind change the bite shuts down. Largemouth bass are in substantially more shallow water than is typical for this time of year.  ...

    Fishing on Delavan remains decent.  It’s not as good as a few weeks ago, but that’s to be expected with the cool temps and unstable weather.  As the lake continues to cool, the fish will transition from summer to fall patterns. Crappie fishing has been pretty good.  The fish are in the weeds in 13-14 ft of water.  T...

    By John Luthens I was 10 years old when my mind wrapped itself in the gentle outdoor towel surrounding me. It was bath time on the cusp of a falling summer night in my grandparent’s tarpaper cabin in the far northwestern corner of Wisconsin – the Brule River Valley, to be exact. Through a child’s eyes, the unending whisper of re...

    Fishing on Delavan Lake remains inconsistent.  One day its fantastic and the next its very challenging.  I believe this is caused by the inconsistent weather pattern and the cooler than normal temperatures, the lake is 5-10 degrees cooler than normal for late August.  The good news with the cooler water temperature is that the walle...
