    Wow, what a week for Ross's Sport Shop Guides and Clients! The Walleye bite was awesome with Guide Brandon Dunbar catching and Releasing 26" and 28" fish. The Walleye are in very different stages in every lake, some are still in a spawning pattern and some are post spawn. Most of the Walleye are being taken in shallow flats or close to shoreline st...

    By, Dave Hraychuck May 17, 2013 What a difference a week makes! Sunshine, increasing water temperatures, and weeds starting to green up are the main ingredients for a great fishing trip! Walleye fishing has been fair to good. Fishing rock bars and weed edges with a jig and minnow, small Rapplas, or Shad Raps seem to work best.  Anglers have...

The May 7 survey also showed that ...

    Good Fishing – Bad Weather Hi Folks.  We have entered out 2nd week of the fishing season and walleye fishing has been good, but we had a few speed bumps to deal with. The worst was our weather this past weekend. 2-1/2 inches of snow greeting us on Sunday morning. At times Saturday it looked like we were in a snow globe that was being sh...

    May 14, 2013 The lakes around the area are finally free of ice and anglers are finally able to try their luck fishing. Windy conditions over the weekend were brutal, but we have some gorgeous weather on the way and the fish should really put the chew on. I think things will happen rapidly this year, and the fishing should be good. The walleyes ar...

    Cold, wet and windy weather met many anglers this past weekend fishing in the northwoods. Weather conditions were more of mid-March instead of May. There were some hearty anglers who fought through these conditions. For those who did spend time on the water there were mixed results. The walleye action was sporadic. Anglers fishing jig and minnow c...

    Snow on May 11th!!! Woke up to white on the 12th. Fishing conditions have been terrible (cold, wind), but the fishing has been terrific! Not often we get to fish the walleye spawn and close post spawn. Lots of active fish. Walleye: Excellent. Despite cold, wind, sleet, rain and snow, the walleyes have been very active. Lots of lake limits (due to ...

    As I sit here at my computer on May 12th I am watching the wonderful snow turning the ground white once again.  It is driving me crazy.  On a better note, the ice has finally gone out on most of the lakes in the area and the walleye are finally spawning. The water has been so cold that the only placse we could find active fish were where...

    By Steve Suman This week’s weather forecasts indicate we might at last experience more spring-like, warmer temperatures. Yes, those forecasts include rain, but it will be a nice change to receive precipitation in the liquid form!

    With the up and down temperatures the lake remains pretty cold which is causing some inconsistent fishing.  The best bite on the lake is perch and largemouth bass.  Stable weather is predicted and that will help turn on the smallmouth bass and bluegills. Largemouth bass have been biting in the shallows in 3-4 ft of water.  The best ...

    The yo-yo weather has been a constant factor this past week, it looks like stable weather is coming this week which will help the fishing tremendously.  With frost warnings in the middle of May, it has been cooling the water temperature from where it should be this time of year.  When the weather is stable the fishing has been relatively ...

    After a late ice out the warm air temps last week  shot the water temps into the low 50's but another major cold front showed up just in time for the weekend. Air temps plunged and the water temps fell back into the upper 40's. High winds made navigation and fishing a chore and even dangerous for smaller boats. Those that did brave the weathe...
