    With a few warm days Lake Geneva has started to produce some fish in the main portions of the lake.  The smallmouth bass should be spawning in the next two weeks with the largemouth bass and bluegills to follow.  The best time to fish Lake Geneva is Memorial Day through the second week of June. Largemouth bass are being caught in 3-4 ft ...

    My partner, Split, and I felt confident that this was a good beginning to an exciting day of fishing. We were fortunate to have already caught two keeper largemouth bass under a fallen tree at our first fishing spot. We were fishing the Northwestern Bass Tournament on Cauldron Falls. Cauldron Falls is a flowage of the Peshtigo River in the Crivitz,...

    January 3, 2019 Carolyn from Anglers All reports:  Some people have started ice fishing the S-Curve and Bono Creek but keep in mind this is new ice so check your way. They are walking and taking machines on the Ashland side of the Bay with reports of 8 to 12 inches of ice but ask ahead before venturing our with machines! The Washbur...

    It has been an interesting week in central Wisconsin with decent fishing and very good activity at our bear baiting locations. With about 2 ½ weeks until the start of the 2019 bear season I can already see people starting to get excited about the upcoming hunt.  Water temperatures on area lakes and rivers are still hovering in the mid...

    Fishing in early August remains similar to most of July, a slight slow down for a few species, but an up tick for others.  A few fronts have made for some fish and dodge times on the water, but overall things good.   Largemouth Bass:  Very Good-Good – Can’t miss using Wacky Worms in 8-12’ cabbage.  Top water ...

                    Fishing on Lake Geneva continues to be excellent.  I have not seen fishing this good in recent years.  I am consistently getting double digit catches of both smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The only species that is slower than normal for this time of year is the northern pike, ...

    Steve Suman   The North Woods can look forward to a very nice week, according to the forecast, with Tuesday currently showing the only chances for rain. Highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s offer great weather for recreation AND sleeping! Take advantage – we have already passed mid-August!   “Anglers using various presenta...

    Up and down and up and down, that is how our winter is going so far. The good thing is that the fishing is consistent and very good for almost all species that we are targeting.  Walleye and pike are feeding aggressively and we are picking up some really nice fish. The panfish bite has been very good with some very large crappies and gills hit...

    January 28, 2019 Steve Suman The forecast is not pretty for this week, with no temperatures above -4 degrees before Friday and dangerous wind chills. The cold spell breaks Friday, with highs in the mid 30s (above zero!) forecast for Saturday and Sunday!   “This frigid cold will help build ice,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, &l...

    It’s gotten plenty chilly outside.  Most days not seeing temps above 0 degrees, and wind chills in the 30-50 degrees below keeping anglers off the ice (and who can blame them!).   If there is a bright side to this (and you’ve got to look very hard) most of the heavy snow is south of the Northwoods.  The lack of snow cov...

    August 5, 2019 Steve Suman   Aside from a chance of thunderstorm Wednesday, the forecasts indicate a very nice week through the weekend. Daytime highs in the 70s are perfect for outdoor activities and nighttime lows around 50 degrees make for very good sleeping weather. If you are waiting for better conditions, well... good luck with that! ...

    Fishing on Delavan remains very consistent.  The only problem has been the excessive fishing pressure.  It isn’t too hard to get on the water, but getting off has been a constant battle.               Largemouth bass can be caught on the deep weed line.  They can be caught on either deep...
