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...

    By John Luthens Like a plundering barbarian digging in his heels for an epic charge, I have stockpiled an arsenal for a year’s conquest of Wisconsin.  Over the span of nine days I made the rounds to three sporting shows and I am now fully armed.

    MADISON – Preliminary results from systematic monitoring of Wisconsin lakes for aquatic invasive species confirm that boaters, not ducks or other birds, are spreading the invaders around, state and University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers say.

    EDITOR'S ADVISORY: This news release was previously issued to agricultural media. MADISON – The bumper crop of smallmouth bass produced in southwestern Wisconsin in 2012 is one more reason for farmers to keep up their good work in carefully spreading manure on fields so that it doesn’t run off into streams and kill fish, state water re...

    By Darrel Pendergrass Most men of the outdoors are able to face danger without fear of injury or harm, mostly because they are intelligent and well versed in the ways of the wild. It comes with the territory. Should an outdoorsman be confronted with an edgy black bear our guy knows to hold his ground; he shouldn’t run around in circles flai...

    Crappie fishing has slowed but the Gill action has been great. We have been finding gills close to structure in 10 to 20 feet of water. Waxies or Spikes on small jigs have worked well. Walleye action is fair with most fish coming in the low light hours on shiners. Northern action is still great, Large Goldens on Tip-Ups are catching most of the p...

    I ran the last gasp of fuel from my ice fishing season, because like an ice-auger engine, that is what you do before you tuck it away for the season. My ice engine went out in a final roaring cloud of snow and ice. Monday night found me in Oshkosh, near the Lake Winnebago shores, with a truckload of jigs, poles, tip-ups, not to mention auger blade...

    Recent snows have hampered travel on area lakes but if you can get out the fishing has been outstanding. The crappie bite remains the bet I have seen in years.  We are catching not only numbers of fish but really nice big slab crappies as well. Most of the fish we are finding are suspended 2 to 6 feet off the bottom over  20 feet of wate...

    The 2013 sturgeon spear fishery on the Winnebago System is officially over, with very similar results to the 2012 fishery.  A total of 12 fish (0 juvenile females, 7 adult females, and 5 males) were harvested from Lake Winnebago today.  There were a total of 306 fish (30 juvenile females, 131 adult females, and 145 males) harvested from L...

    The 2013 sturgeon spearing season is really starting to wind down, only 3 more days left for spearers to pursue that fish of a lifetime!  That is until next February when it all starts over again, but that is a long ways off.   Harvest picked up slightly today, with a total of 14 fish (2 juvenile females, 6 adult females, and 6 mal...

    The recently completed NAFA auction in Toronto Feb 21-23 saw some dramatic price increases in wild fur pelts. This reflects a combination of reduced animal populations due to the summer drought, cold winter weather and promotion of fur garments in China. Some articles like raccoon, muskrat and red foxes almost doubled in price. Even less desirable ...

    Even with the snow and winds today, spearers were still able to get out on Lake Winnebago and harvest some fish.  There were 12 fish harvested from Lake Winnebago today, 8 of which were registered at Jerry’s Bar in Oshkosh.  Action in this area of the lake has really picked up over the last few days, and spearers are having success....

    By Professional Guide Kurt Justice With the exception of Saturday’s high pressure shut down, things have been picking up this past week out on the ice.   Gamefish are lagging from our long early ice season, but even with these fish, a pickup of action has occurred. Perch:  Good.  Some of the best reports surprisingly are...

    By John Luthens Mud Lake doesn’t sound like much when you look at it strictly on a first name basis.  Even reading its statistics doesn’t invoke much more than a yawn: 165 acres with a maximum depth of around four feet.  In the winter the dissolved oxygen content falls so low that the only fish to survive are mud minnows that...
