    It has been a tough week with all the rain we received but we were able to get out and put together a pattern that worked.   Water conditions went from normal levels and clear to downright flood stage and muddy. In addition to the high muddy water as we moved to later in the week we were greeted with a high pressure system and a northeast...

    Mike Yurk Much is written and talked about by bass fishermen concerning natural structure and cover in lakes. But what about man-made objects that draw and hold fish to them? I would guess more bass are taken by anglers off docks, boat lifts and other items man has put in and on the water. Docks and boat lifts like this young fisherman is appro...

    Captain Dave Duwe How are your kids at Minecraft?  Do they watch a lot of Spongebob?  As adults it’s frustrating to watch our kids amuse themselves with electronics. We never had technology at our fingertips and had to go out and make our own fun. I don’t want to ponder about the good ole days for long, but I remember a time ...

    Steve Suman   Severe weather in the North Woods made for a rough weekend. This week’s forecast (should it hold true) shows a reprieve and some very pleasant weather, at least until possible showers Friday. If you plan to travel in the area this week, particularly north of Hayward, check ahead for road closures and detours.   &ld...

    As I sit here writing this we just received about 3 inches of rain in central Wisconsin.  I can’t wait to see what it does to the conditions on the area lakes and rivers but it sure can’t hurt. We have been dry for quite a while and some much needed rain is a blessing.  Water temperatures as of this morning were right around 7...

    Here we go again with the up and down weather patterns that are disrupting the water temperatures and the fishing patterns. The water temperatures dropped 10 to 15 degrees in a period of two days this past weekend and it has created some very interesting fishing conditions. Most of the fish have shifted to deeper water as well as becoming quite a b...

We have had reports that the trails are in good riding condition for the beginning of the season. As for the fishing side of things we continue to hear that walleye and p...

    Anglers across our area are experiencing some good fishing for a variety of species. Walleye action has been steady at dusk. Jig and minnow combinations are working but leeches are also making up some nice catches. We are seeing mayflies on the water so the walleye bite might slow a bit but fish will still be catchable. Walleyes are found on weed e...

    Quite a few walleyes and bass have come across the bow of my boat this past week with several of them real dandies.  We have also seen some very good crappie and pike fishing this past week as well.  Water temperatures spiked last weekend and some areas were pushing the 80 degree mark, but it has toned down a bit and we are holding steady...
