Kevin Wallenfang and his tournament winning, 46-inch musky just prior to release Fishing has been as hot as the weather for our circle of family and friends, and anglers participating in the 16th Annual Bob Ellis Row Trolling Classic. The Classic was started in 2003 by fishing guide Patricia Strutz to memorialize Bob Ellis, a legendary northern Wisconsin row troller inducted into the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame in 2008 for his im...

    Day One Results — Saturday, July 20, 2013 What Kewaunee and Door County anglers are lacking in numbers of salmon reeled in this year, they’re making up for in size. Just a year after only one 20-pound-plus chinook was put to scale opening day — and 14 in the entire nine-day tournament — 33 20-pound-plus “kings” ...

    Summer Fishing Has Arrived Hi Folks – Well, we are most definitely in summer now.  Hot, humid temps the past couple of weeks have skyrocketed water temps into the 80 degree mark.  These temps have put fishing into full summer patterns.  MUSKY fishing has been pretty good as of late with a good early morning bite window.  ...

    My far-going fishing buddies laugh every time I tell them I am going to fish the Milwaukee River. They assume the worst- “Fishing for carp or floating garbage?” they ask. They chase the fish of summer in tranquil and spring-fed northern waters. I believe they picture a weed-choked and polluted piece of stagnant water when I tell of the...

    Written by Len Harris Article posted in the Richland Observer, Thursday, July 11, 2013 I was driving home and I saw a guy fishing in a trout FREE zone. It was nothing more than a ditch with some water in it. I saw he had Illinois plates and I decided he needed a little help. I stopped and talked to him. He was a beginner trout angler and this was...

    By Steve Suman Forecasters say the Hayward area is in for another warm week, and while hot and sunny is not the best for mid-day fishing, the weather is certainly inviting for various water sports! “The days of heat and humidity are now with us,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “Daytime temperatures can reach more than 80 degrees with...

    By, Dave Hraychuck Summer is in full swing. The panfish bite has been really hot.  Small jigs such as Shrimpos, Flu Flus, and Cubby Jigs have been producing lots of nice bluegills and crappies in 8 to 12 feet of water.  In deeper water lakes, the graphs have been lighting up in 20 to 30’ of water.  Bottom bouncers with small f...

    We are still doing very well on Panfish and Walleye in the Phillips Area. July is usually a time of year when the warm temps seem to slow the fishing down but this year things are really starting to heat up. Gills, Crappie, Perch, Walleye and Smallies are all being taken in the same areas. The magic water depth seems to be anywhere from 8 to 15 ...

    Denny Aaron from the Deer Run Resort on the Chippewa Flowage caught and released this thick, heavy 50" Muskie on Monday morning, according to OWO writer Ron Klimcke. “It hit a bucktail in shallow water near the edge of a bar, headed for deep water and took a fair amount of line off his drag which is very unusual,” Ron said. “It al...

    For this time of year, the fishing remains very consistent.  There are large numbers of fish to be caught.  The bass have not moved deep yet so they are still accessible on the mid range weedlines. Northern Pike have moved out of the shallows and are now on the thermocline in 30-32 ft of water.  They can be readily caught on lindy r...

    The fish are in their mid summer patterns.  The water temperatures have increased so most of the fish are in the deeper water and aggressively hitting.  With the excessive rains we had a couple of weeks ago, there is a severe algae bloom on the lake. Walleye fishing can be good given enough time.  The fish can be caught on leeches f...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The streams and lakes are back to normal levels.  I was out trout fishing and tried using night crawlers on the streams where you can keep trout.  I didn’t catch any trout but some nice white suckers.  I changed over to Panther Martin spinners and the action was excellent.  Right now it is good to fl...

    Don't Miss The Boat..... Shore Fishing Not every quality fishing opportunity needs to be from a boat. Factors like weather and amount of time can make all the trouble of loading and unloading a boat just not worth it. At these times I take my kids and friends shore fishing.

    Great bite from walleyes this past week by anglers long-lining crankbaits in 6 to 10 feet of water.  The action for crappies has been reliable and very consistent.  We have found most of the crappies suspended about 5 feet down over 10 to 16 feet of water. The bluegill bite has picked up the past few weeks and a lot of that is associate...

    Summer patterns, while still behind due to late ice, clouds, cool weather and rain are starting to set up.  With most signs of bug hatches over, that missing food source should help to concentrate the bites to the food sources remaining.  That doesn’t mean angling gets easier, there is still a lot of food out there, just fewer choic...

    The slow no-wake order has expired and the water clarity has been improving and the weedlines are starting to form nicely with the warmer weather and water.
