Now it starts.  Too much to keep up with in Wisconsin, and that is one nice problem for an outdoorsman.

    Even though we are having a cooler than normal August, fishing remains excellent.  The fish remain in their typical summer patterns. Bluegill fishing has greatly improved.  The fish are in two locations, one by Township Park in 12 ft of water and the other on main lake points in 15-17 ft of water.  The bigger fish have come out of t...

    Well after a warm couple of weeks the recent rain and accompanying cold front has dropped water temperature 10 degrees and the fish have responded accordingly. Walleyes have moved deeper and are now holding in 10 to 16 feet of water around drop-offs associated with any rock or gravel.  The musky bite has been good with action on large bucktail...

    This past week we had some very warm weather early and ended with the most severe cold front we’ve had all year.  Even with the 30 degree swing the fishing remained fairly consistent. Bluegills have again started to bite just off the weed line in 15-18 ft of water.  The best location has been by Assembly Park or by Browns Channel.&...

A shaft of sunlight broke free as I pulled ...
