On November 4, most of the country sensed that something was wrong. The previous day, Election Day, in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia vote counting was stopped late at night, poll watchers were told to go home, and vote counting was resumed. By morning the big lead that Donald Trump held in the evening had vanished under the cover of darkness.A few days later the media, not the people, declared Joe Biden the winner. Biden then beg...

    Summers over….  We are now entering the beginning stages of what I consider the best time of the year.  Fall…  Musky fishing heats up, deer and bear season are just about under way, guys have already started goose hunting and a whole lot more is coming up in the near future.  Water temperatures on the river syst...

    The cool August days have now turned into cool September days.  Fishing on Geneva has been a bit more challenging than normal.  Some days the fishing patterns are easily identified but with any weather or wind change the bite shuts down. Largemouth bass are in substantially more shallow water than is typical for this time of year.  ...

    Fishing on Delavan remains decent.  It’s not as good as a few weeks ago, but that’s to be expected with the cool temps and unstable weather.  As the lake continues to cool, the fish will transition from summer to fall patterns. Crappie fishing has been pretty good.  The fish are in the weeds in 13-14 ft of water.  T...

    By John Luthens I was 10 years old when my mind wrapped itself in the gentle outdoor towel surrounding me. It was bath time on the cusp of a falling summer night in my grandparent’s tarpaper cabin in the far northwestern corner of Wisconsin – the Brule River Valley, to be exact. Through a child’s eyes, the unending whisper of re...

    Fishing on Delavan Lake remains inconsistent.  One day its fantastic and the next its very challenging.  I believe this is caused by the inconsistent weather pattern and the cooler than normal temperatures, the lake is 5-10 degrees cooler than normal for late August.  The good news with the cooler water temperature is that the walle...

    Water levels are finally getting back to normal.  Trout streams are all producing with fly fishermen doing the best.  The backwaters of the Wisconsin River are showing great pan fishing action during the last couple of hours before sunset.  Bass and northern pike have slowed down and should improve towards the end of the month.&nbs...

    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...

    Fishing on Lake Geneva remains very consistent.  Most of the action is coming in water deeper than 20 ft which is typical for the month of August.  Lake Trout fishing has been fantastic in the early morning hours.  The best bite is between 5:30 and 8:30 a.m.  You want to fish the main lake basin 70-80 ft down in 108 -120 ft of ...

    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.&...
