    Panfishing continues to be great in the shallows, both Crappie and Bluegill are shallow and hitting well. Walleye fishing is still ok, with a lot of 10 to 14 inch fish being caught, some are still shallow and some are sliding back into 10 to 15 feet water, minnows seem to be the choice bait yet but the leech bite is getting better fast. ...

    As long as the weather keeps warming, the fishing keeps improving daily.  This past week we had significant SW winds which made most of the lake unfishable. I’ve been catching most of my fish from the Abbey Springs area to the Military Academy. Rock bass are in the shallows in 10-15 ft of water.  The best approach is a split shot r...

    Fishing remains above average overall.  Most of the fish remain in the shallow waters, under 10 ft for the most part.  The best bite on the lake is Bluegills and Largemouth bass. Crappie fishing has been above average by Belvidere Park or by Brown Channel.  The best depth has been 7-10 ft of water on the weedline.  You want to ...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The backwaters of the Wisconsin River near Lone Rock are producing some nice bluegills. Fishing was great with the fly rod and a tantalizing rubber spider.   The northern pike action is picking up and a great time to find some nice size ones. I like spinners with buck tails in colors of orange or green. Trout acti...

    Good walleye bite on the Wisconsin River right now with anglers picking up nice fish in 8 to 12 feet of water associated with current breaks and downed timber. I run Rick Jaroch's weedless Rickee lead head jigs tipped with fathead minnows right on the bottom, and right in the wood for the best action. Nap Pozulp from Chicago with a n...

    Dear Winnebago Sturgeon Enthusiasts: Our busy spring field season has wound down and my staff and I have now had a chance to catch our breath and process some of the data we collected this spring.  As a result, I have drafted a synopsis outlining the results of our sturgeon spawning assessments.  In a nutshell: the spawning run was very ...

    Had to be on a Holiday Weekend when fishing shut down around here! After a few weeks of excellent walleye, very good pike, crappie fishing, east by southeast winds moved in bringing cold and dropping water temperatures by 6 to 8 degrees on average and pretty much shutting down most of our hot action. Musky: Good. The one bright spot. Reports of go...

    This has been one of the coldest springs I can recall.  The smallmouth bass are just starting to spawn and most years they would be totally done by now.  Overall fishing has been improving daily with the warmer weather. Rock bass are starting to show up everywhere around the lake in 7-12 ft of water.  The best approach is a split sh...

    Fishing is really very good and improving daily.  The bass and bluegills spawn is mere days away.  Most fish are starting to move into the shallows in 1-2 ft of water.  Boat traffic for this time of year is still very low due to the cool water temps. Bluegill fishing is improving daily.  The heavy spawn should happen within the...

    By John Luthens The lilacs were in fragrant bloom on the shoreline of Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  The first ducklings of the year paddled obediently behind a hen mallard on the placid surface of Asylum Bay.

    May 27, 2013 Steve Suman Cool, wet conditions continue in the North Woods, though the forecasts show a short, mid-week warming trend. Anglers: Forget basing fish locations on the calendar – concern yourself with the actual conditions. The DNR increased daily walleye bag limits on 442 northern Wisconsin lakes. Check signs at boat landings, ...
