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...

    Attention Winnebago System Sturgeon Enthusiasts:   We've been running on a 1 fish/day harvest for the last 2 days, but today was zeros across the board.  There were no fish registered on the Upriver Lakes or Lake Winnebago, so harvest numbers remain the same as yesterday (552 on Lake Winnebago; 295 on Upriver Lakes; system total 847...

    Winnebago System Sturgeon Enthusiasts:  I’ve been talking in many of my reports about the reduction in spearing effort, and in turn harvest. Well, today the inevitable finally happened; we had a 0 fish harvest on Lake Winnebago.  I’m not sure when the last 0 was recorded for a day of spearing on Lake Winnebago, but I’m ...

    Steve Suman The combination of unseasonably warm weather and rain is making winter activities in the North Woods a challenge. It is affecting ice fishing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing – especially this weekend’s American Birkebeiner, for which organizers are making a number of schedule changes. For the most current infor...

    Big week for crappies and bluegills plus some nice walleyes and northern pike.  Ice conditions are very good with 14 to 20 inches of good ice on most area lakes but still use caution when you are near areas with current. Travel conditions are very good with little to no snow on the lakes either.  This weekend may change things though with...

    February 13, 2017 Steve Suman Following this week’s mild start, colder weather arrives for a few days, after which temperatures move to the 50s for the weekend and first part of next week. The good news for Birkie skiers, snowmobilers, and ice anglers is that temperatures then return to low-30s highs through the weekend! “Most area l...

    Attention Winnebago System Sturgeon Enthusiasts: We are now less than 24 hours away from the start of the 2017 lake sturgeon spearing season on Lake Winnebago and the Upriver Lakes.  I'm sure there will be many stories shared over the next few days of past spearing seasons, so I wanted to distribute a summary report from last speari...

    Our crew was out checking water clarity on Lake Winnebago yesterday and as anticipated clarity has changed since our last readings on January 30.  The average readings have dropped about a foot over the last week and a half (average 9.4' yesterday compared to 10.3' on January 30), but there appears ...

    Well a lot of things have changed in the past week.  Ice conditions have upgraded and travel on area lakes has improved drastically. Most lakes have anywhere from 14 to 18 inches of ice with little snow cover which makes for very good travel conditions. We have had consistent action on both walleyes and pike with some good numbers but even ...

    I am going to start this week’s report off with a warning.  Stay of the ice with your vehicles!!!  We have seen several vehicles plunge through the ice in the past few weeks and the ice is just not that safe this year. Not our vehicles but other anglers that took chances that they shouldn’t have!  Average ice thicknesses...

    February 6, 2017 Steve Suman   We can enjoy a cold, albeit typical, start to the week, with snow possible nearly every day. Look for sunshine and a slight warm-up after mid-week... and then more snow going into the weekend.   “The groundhog saw his shadow,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “so plenty of time remains for wi...
