    The largemouth bass have been in pre-spawn and spawn patterns for the past week.  They can be caught while sight fishing or casting the shallow flats where there is a hard sand bottom.  A lot of the fish are being caught on tube baits or All Terrain Sticks.  The best location has been by the outlet or on the west end by the island.&n...

    Due to the cool spring, fishing on Geneva has remained relatively slow.  Most of the action has been coming in shallow waters, 3-4 ft deep. Largemouth bass have been biting in Geneva Bay, Trinkes and Abbey Harbor.  Most of the fish are coming in and around the boats.  Use a split shot rig nightcrawler or an All Terrain Stik in Green...

    By Darrell Pendergrass Like many people who live here in northern Wisconsin I’m waiting patiently for warmer weather to arrive. However, my patience is wearing thin as this is quickly becoming the slowest arriving spring I’ve ever known; which is quite an accomplishment as I spent four years in Fairbanks, Alaska as a child. In fact, i...

    By Darrell Pendergrass There is a skunk living in my garage. It would be nice to be to say there WAS a skunk living in there – as in the past tense - but that would be premature at this point. I hope to evict the skunk in short order, but as of yet I have not devised an effective plan to achieve my goal. I would have to say the skunk has be...

    Dear Winnebago Sturgeon Enthusiasts: It has been a wild and crazy spring, and the weather has affected the spring sturgeon spawn.  The warm weather late last week and early this week activated fish at numerous spawning sites throughout the Winnebago System and fish were spawning at numerous sites simultaneously during the early part of this w...

    MADISON - Ice cover and road conditions mean that some lakes in northern Wisconsin will not be stocked with catchable size trout before the May 4 opening day of the inland fishing season. Department of Natural Resources fisheries crews had hoped to have the stocking done in time for the opener but continuing ice cover on the lakes and difficult co...

    A true fish story about the one that didn't get away The case of the wrong-way sturgeon started with a citizen phone call and ended with a happy sturgeon and true fish story about the one that didn't get away -- and that's good! A resident of Seymour first saw the stranded sturgeon and knew something wasn't right about where it was -- which was i...

    If you haven’t had a chance to break away to catch Lake Winnebago system sturgeon spawning this week, we’ve got a video that gives you a front row seat to the action.

    Dear Winnebago Sturgeon Enthusiasts: The sturgeon started spawning at the Shawano Dam yesterday and our crews worked hard to handle over 350 fish on Wednesday!  The spawn was just getting underway, in fact most of the females that we handled were still hard and not actively laying eggs.  If this year holds true to form, these fish will h...

    With the warm weather we had last week the water temperatures really shot up. The temperatures went from 33 degrees on Friday to 53 degrees on Tuesday creating an outstanding walleye bite on the Wisconsin River.  With that happening the fishing exploded and we caught lots of eater sized fish in the 15 to 20 inch range, along with several fish ...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler Trout season is just about upon us.  The waters in Richland County are a little bit on the high side.  There is still great fishing if you head to the start of streams.  The water is clear and brookies are aggressive.  On the three big streams:  Willow, Pine, and Mill Creek look for spots that tend t...

    Conditions for this weekend have NOT improved.  Ice has melted down and out, but not enough to launch boats and in some cases, too far to get on the ice. I checked the Willow Flowage (4/30).  The road to Cedar Falls Campground is closed (don’t know why).  At the dam, ice out from shore 3-10’, but ice as far as you can se...

    Hard to believe it’s April 30th and our lakes are still covered with an average of 24” of ice.  The pond behind our shop is approximately 15% ice free.  We use this as an indicator as once the pond is out, typically Lake Minocqua follows in 7-10 days.  The rains forecasted for the past couple of days never materialized in...

    Please help us spread the word, not all of Northern Wisconsin is froze solid. The Phillips Chain of Lakes will be mostly ice free for the 2013 fishing opener this Saturday. The Flambeau River in Price County is also virtually ice free. John Carlsons picture is from the Phillips Chain of Lakes in Phillips, WI. This is the latest ice out in memory...

    A spark of warm weather, added with some rain and a little wind is starting to weaken some ice around the area. However, the fishing opener this weekend will find several lakes still ice covered, or possibly partially ice covered. Lakes with some type of water flow running into them, are the bodies of water opening up. With some lakes being locked ...
