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...

    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...

    Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter from Anglers All, (715)-682-5754, http://www.anglersallwisconsin. The Ice is moving in and out by the Sioux and Onion Rivers on the Big Lake. There are a couple of places that are showing open water in the Bay but no Smelt yet! There is still ice on the shoreline that needs to move out and believe it or not…we ha...

    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.
  • 5/3/2013 9:10:00 AM
    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...

    Minong, Wis. (May 2, 2013) - What could be better than waking up in the morning and being able to head right out on the ATV trails for the day? The new Minong ATV Campground will allow you to do just that. The campground is scheduled to open on May 17th and is located at 802 S. Railroad St., along the Wild Rivers State Trail in Minong and feature...

    Sawyer County Ice Report:  These photos on the Chippewa Flowage were taken April 30.  Things are looking good.
  • 5/1/2013 1:35:00 PM
    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...

The warm, sunny weekend renewed spirits, and none too soon, since the May 4 game fish opener is this coming Saturday. The forecast indicates a few weather bumps in the road ahead, but it appears we are at last heading in the right direction. “...

    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 ...

    Dear Winnebago Sturgeon Enthusiasts: The 2013 sturgeon spawning migration is in full swing and sturgeon are now spawning throughout the Winnebago System.  Reports from this morning indicate that fish were spawning in Berlin and Princeton on the upper Fox River, the Manawa Dam on the Little Wolf River, and at various sites throughout the Wolf ...

The answer remains the same as it was during the 2012 season. It depends upon how you use these rigs. The Alabama Fi...

    The cooler than average temperatures this April have kept the water temperatures lower than normal.  Overall panfishing has been pretty good and a nice run of warm sunny days will help to improve the fishing.  Opening Day for game fish is this coming Saturday. Bluegill action seems to be the most consistent bite.  The fish I’v...
  • 4/30/2013 1:00:00 PM
    The water temperature remains cold.  The cool nights have made fishing tough this year.  The best bite on the lake remains yellow perch as they continue to be in the shallow waters.  Remember that Opening Day is the first Saturday in May. Perch fishing has been good in 3-4 ft of water.  The best location has been by Fontana Bea...

    I wish we had some good news for the opener, but, we don't! Despite a third day of 60+ weather, we aren't loosing ice fast enough to insure open water come May 4th.  On one measurement from Friday evening, April 26 until early Sunday morning April 28, we had lost only 1" of ice.  A measurement of 24" of ice as of today (4/29) on Lake Min...
