    10/27/16 - Reported by Jim Stroede Guide Service I've been fishing muskie exclusively here in the month of October.  The bite has been good to very good most days.  One thing that has been working well is dragging live suckers and casting big minnow baits. We are catching more fish deeper rather than shallow this week, see...

    Sun danced off the river and the bright fall colors on shore as I flipped my crankbait towards the rocky bank. I got the bait half way back to the boat when it jolted to a stop, feeling a fish pulling back. The fish tore off as my spinning rod was doubled over. Dark blue water, bright fall colors and a cloudless sky make for a good day of fishing ...

    Steve Suman   According to this week’s forecast, every day following Monday should be sunny and somewhat mild, though cooler than in recent weeks. Perhaps most surprising is the lack of chances for rain and thunderstorms! This could be a GREAT week for outdoor recreation of all types – other than waterfowl hunting. Get out take a...

    Fall fishing is in full swing now that last week’s cold nights helped to put the turnover behind us for the most part.  You may see surface temps top out in the mid 50’s or higher early in the week due to a couple of warm days, but, that won’t recreate a turnover as sub-surface temps will remain in the low 50’s now.Musk...

    Wow, what an absolutely outstanding week for fishing. The musky bite was on-fire and action for walleyes and crappies was unbeatable.  We even picked up some very nice northern pike and a few nice bass.  Water temperatures are in the mid 50’s right now and it has really triggered a great fall feeding bonanza. For you musky guys n...

    Lake Geneva’s water has been cooling slower than I can remember.  The water temperature is still 64-66 degrees.  The best bite has been largemouth bass.  They are in the medium depth rocks with weeds in 15-18 ft of water.  The best location has been by South Shore Club or by Trinkes.  They can either be caught while ...

    The exceptionally warm fall has the fall bite delayed a bit.  With the cooler water temperatures the fishing is starting to improve.  The walleyes I’ve been catching are in 20-25 ft of water.  They can be caught on chrome and blue jigging Rapalas or lindy rigging extra large fat head minnows.  The best location has been b...

    Well the fall changeover has started and it has started off with a bang.  The musky bite has been nothing short of phenomenal this past week and you will see from the photos just how good it was. The walleyes and crappies have moved to their tradition fall locations and are stacked up.  Activity in the woods has increased with hunters see...
