    As we are closing in on July, I am wondering where the month of June went.  Next week is the 4th of July and we are full swing into summer!  With that said the month ended out on a good solid note.  Fishing was very good for all species with musky and walleye topping that list.  Water temperatures have come down a bit with the l...

    The weather didn’t follow the forecast exactly. Some rain, lots of wind, but overall, fishing remained good. Largemouth Bass: Very Good. Lots of numbers on a variety of lures and baits (makes them all the more fun to fish for). For plastics, YumDingers and Yamamoto Senkos fished wacky style and staple. Spinner baits by Boonie, Booyah and Nor...

    Steve Suman A strong storm rolled through the Hayward area Saturday evening, but this week the forecast is for moderate temperatures – mild days and cool nights – with possible rain Wednesday and Thursday. “Water levels are high,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “and weed growth is providing good cover for the fish. &ldqu...

    Lake Geneva fishing has been excellent.  The largemouth and smallmouth bass remain very accessible to the average angler.  The thermocline still has not formed but with the warmer weather, it should happen in the next week or so.     Largemouth bass action has been very good by Trinkes and just east of Cedar Point.&nb...

    Delavan Lake fishing is in the fantastic summer time pattern.  It has been awesome for fishing but there is excessive boat traffic, so plant to go early or late.  Strong winds this week have also made some locations difficult to fish. With the warmer weather of late, the northern pike have been pushing to the deep weedlines in 17-19 ft o...

    Bam… First “50” of the year!  Doug Aziz made it happen when he landed a GIANT musky this past week while fishing with me. The monster struck a topwater bait made by Lake X Lures called the Fat Bastard.  In addition to the great musky caught by Doug we have seen several other nice muskies this week along with some great ...

    Clint Ward from Cleveland Wisconsin sends this 49.5-inch musky caught June 14 on the Turtle Flambeau Flowage. Camping with his wife Sarah on one of the flowage many islands, the fish was taken on a misty and overcast morning fishing a small bay.  Attempts to release the fish failed.  Photo credit Sarah Ward.

    June 20, 2016 Steve Suman This week’s forecast looks promising, with mild temperatures and mostly “minimal” chances for rain throughout the week. Let’s hope it holds – it’s about time! “Musky action is rather slow,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “with many follows, but few hook-ups. “Use m...

    They are Heeerrree! The dreaded Hexagenia hatches have been going on for the past week at a lake near YOU! And there are still a few more to come. The larger lakes, with deeper, cooler waters are yet to see hatches. Mid-sized (1000 Acres and less) and the flowages have finished. Warm afternoons have pushed surface temps into the low 70’s; m...

    The weather is finally settling down.  We had quite a bit of rain and made for some tough trout fishing.  I noticed the big three trout streams (Willow, Pine River, and Mill Creek) are all starting to clear up.  The small streams are excellent for some good wading upstream for those brook and brown trout. The Wisconsin River is sl...

    Lake Geneva has been fantastic both for the smallmouth bass and the largemouth bass.  The fish are starting to get into their summer patterns.  The thermocline has yet to form but it should be forming within the next week or so driving the northern pike to their summer homes. Smallmouth bass are in the water depth of 10-12 ft.  My b...

    Fishing on Delavan Lake has been fantastic both in numbers and size.  The fish are in their summer patterns, which is the deep weed line bite.  Bluegill fishing has been excellent.  I’ve been catching most of my fish in 13-14 ft of water right on the weed line.  The best approach is a small split shot and a single hook fi...

    The past week ended with a huge storm, knocking out the power in much of the Lakeland area this past Friday night.  A week of very changing weather:  sun, clouds, cold (launched boat at 32 degrees on 6/7), wind, and flat calm.  Crazy ups, downs, and sideways so anglers had a lot of changes to deal with.

    Steve Suman Once again, the forecast calls for chances of showers nearly every day this week, but temperatures are warmer and more summer-like! Do not let “chances” of rain deter you from any outdoor activities – plan ahead and take it day by day! “Musky anglers should target shallow weeds and rock near spawning bluegills ...

    About that long wait; Wisconsin bear hunters can hunt bear in Canada every year and enjoy some great fishing too while waiting for their Wisconsin tags.  Through some outfitters, like Sturgeon Lake Lodge in Ontario, which is often visited by OWO writer Dick Henske, (in fact right now he’s fishing Canada) moose tags ...

The best location for the bluegills has been by Browns Channel or Assembly Park.  The fish have pulled ou...
