    June 18 started with 38 degrees, so what’s new? Guess we shouldn’t be surprised, but a cold front with high pressure in the middle of June has backed water temperatures down into the low 60’s again.  Temps yo-yo up with the sun in the afternoon, but overall are down for this time of year. Smallmouth Bass:  Excellent &nd...

    By Steve Suman Constantly changing weather patterns make it difficult to know what to expect, but the ‘current’ forecast predicts a warm week with (too many) chances for rain. June is peak nesting time for turtles and they are on the move near rivers and wetlands. Watch for them crossing roads, and if safe to do so, move them to the s...

    Walleye fishing is picking up, Leeches and Crawlers are the bait of choice right now. Walleye are slipping back to their summer haunts, that's wood in 10 to 18 feet of water in the Phillips Chain. Weedless jigs, Floating Lindy Rigs, or slip bobbers work well for walleye at this time of year. Crappie are moving off the shorelines and are now being ...

    Delavan Lake fishing is very good right now.  The lake is productive on multiple species.  As summer starts to heat up, the lake is getting very busy.  Prepare to get to the lake early if you want to get a parking spot as well as a vacant fishing spot.  Even though the fishing pressure is high, there are still plenty of good bit...

    “OWO fishing expert Ron Klimcke reports another day of great fishing on the Chippewa Flowage.  “The bite was light and we had to move to several spots to catch our limit,” Ron said Saturday.  “A jig and minnow was all we used.  We caught these fish in in 17 to 21 feet of water.”

    Fishing remains fantastic on Lake Geneva.  Most of the fish are located between 10 and 15 ft of water.  With the warming water temperature the bait of choice has switched from fat head minnows to nightcrawlers. Smallmouth bass remain on the spawning flats in 12-15 ft of water.  Look for the fish by Elgin Club, Knollwood and the Mili...

    Lots of Good Bites Hi Folks – That long extended cold front held up pretty good, but the bite slowed up towards the end. Water temps dropped to the mid-50’s and fish got very touchy.  MUSKY have been very good as the cold front hit.  Last Thursday the musky action went through the roof.  This continued through the weeken...

    My daughter and I have just enough common ground between us to come to a mutual understanding.  The mutual part is often up in the air.  Sometimes, even the understanding seems a stretch.

    The rainy weather finally broke on Monday and the water temps climbed from the low 60's to the mid to upper 60's in a matter of hours. With the warmer water temps the Bluegill, Crappie, and Bass all moved back super shallow and tight to wood. Walleye are scattered from shallow to deep and starting to eat Crawlers and Leeches. I had clients out for...

    Recent rains have water levels very high and dirty causing a lot of the river related fish to relocate to backwater areas. Walleyes have been very active in 4 to 8 feet of water following the recent rains. Jig and minnow combinations in non current areas has been the ticket this past week.  Bass action has been very good on the main lake areas...
