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...

    Usually by mid-August, we will see a night or two cold enough to start just a few sugar maples turning- hasn’t happened yet. Still warm, although cooling down a bit. Surface temps averaging 75⁰ on most lakes.The heat has unfortunately brought about a cisco kill on the Minocqua Chain, as the thermocline deepens and these fragile, cool water fi...

    Steve Suman The 2016 summer weather is nothing if not consistent! Once again, forecasts call for warm and varied chances of wet, with a cooling trend for the weekend. Many rain and thunderstorm “chances” are (currently) low, so make your plans to enjoy outdoor activities!   “Our unusual weather patterns continue,” sa...

    The fishing on Delavan continues to be a good day/bad day proposition.  The weather has been pretty consistently hot and humid.  The best bite on the lake remains the bluegills.  They are constant throughout the lake.  Early in the week the largemouth bass were on the deep weedlines in 15-18 ft of water.  Because of the co...

    The summer heat wave is upon us.  The fishing remains pretty good as long as you get out early in the a.m. or late in the p.m.  The boat traffic on the lake makes fishing in the middle of the day pretty difficult.  Most of the fish are relating to deep water structure.  The best fishing is consistently the largemouth  or wa...

    Hey guys it has been another fantastic week here in central Wisconsin. The fishing has been outstanding and the bear baiting is going very well.  Water temperatures have gone up a bit and are now back in the upper 70”s but cooler weather is forecasted for this upcoming weekend and that should send it back down. The walleye fishing has...

    Carolyn from Angler All reported: This past weekend had really good reports coming in for fishing the Bay! The water is definitely starting to clear. Houghton Point to Pikes has clear water and the fishing continues to be good there. Long Island has cleared up considerably! Trolling for Trout has been great using spoons and spin-n-glows most common...

    8/11/16 - Reported by AAA Sports   If you don't mind the heat then the fish are still out there to catch. More anglers are using crankbaits, spoons, and spinners rather than minnows because the heat makes it difficult to keep the minnows fresh. Leeches are still being used in all sizes. Walleye on Shell lake have been...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler Currently water levels are excellent for all types of fishing.  The rain has finally stopped and the fishing has been great on the Wisconsin River for catfish.  The best baits are stink bait and night crawlers fished near the bottom near deep holes or dead trees along the shoreline.  Surface baits used during t...

    Steve Suman  This week’s numerous weather forecasts are about as fickle and inconsistent as... this summer’s weather! One predicts sunshine and blue skies as most likely, while another warns of possible severe storms (again) Wednesday night. Maybe the folks marketing weather rocks a “few” years ago were onto something ...

    On Wisconsin Outdoors sends a trophy-class thank you to everyone who hoofed their way to Deer Fest at the Washington County Fairgrounds last weekend. We had a fantastic time giving out copies of the paper and meeting a host of like-minded hunters.  There were more than enough displays and vendors on the grounds to make a tangled cedar swamp s...

         The drag was screaming. “There’s a fish,” Captain Scott yelled. The cabin and deck exploded in action as John lurched across the deck, the boat rocking back and forth as four-foot rollers slammed into the boat. Dave, the First Mate, pulled the rod out of the holder, handing it to John as he planted his legs int...

    Well this has been an interesting week.  Water temperatures have dropped about 10 degrees from where they were last week at this time and the bite has really picked up.  We are now seeing water temperatures in the low 70 degree range along with plenty of recent rain to help flush out the system. Musky action has been very good with a g...

    Complete DNR Outdoor Report (Reports from conservation wardens, wildlife and fisheries staff and property managers from around the state) While changes in temperature and moisture brought about a slight drop in angling pressure, it may have given the mosquito population a large upper hand once again.  Intermittent rain, followed by heat...

    With the consistent hot weather and no wind, Lake Geneva has been a bit slower than normal.  The water temperature is higher than it has been in recent years, at or around 82 degrees on the surface and this is causing the fish to deviate from their normal summer patterns. The largemouth bass I’ve been catching have been in 18-20 ft of w...

    Delavan lake fishing suffers with consistently hot and humid weather.  We had a few days of cooler weather and the fishing turned on a bit.  We are nearing the end of the summer so boat traffic is starting to increase while everyone gets out one more time before the end of summer. Bluegill fishing has been overall pretty strong.  Th...

    A mix of cooler weather and some high pressure systems took the edge off the hot bite for several species this past week. Still, for anglers willing to fish early and late in the day, good catches are still being reported.Largemouth Bass: Very Good. Maybe it’s due to sheer numbers, but the green bass just don’t seem to slow down. Wacky ...

    For those of you that have recently lost someone dear to you, I am sorry.  I have also lost a big part of my life as well. Just days ago, Lorraine Greene, my 92 year old mother passed away.

    While not as warm as the previous week, the continued warm weather meant some stable patterns and fairly consistent fishing.  A few high sky days meant the best times were early or late, but, overall the bite has remained good.Smallmouth Bass:  Very good.  Off-shore humps remain best.   Rock and gravel of 18-28’. ...
