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...

    By John Luthens I first discovered the lost pond after a fruitless, day-long, bush-whacking safari up a spring-fed trout stream that fed a bigger, Lake Superior river in the wilds of Douglas and Bayfield counties. I was fishless and unsteady on my feet when I stumbled out of the tributary brush and eyed the headwaters.  The rise of brook tro...

    Delavan Lake fishing remains a bit slower than in recent years, however the boat traffic is substantially lighter than in past years.  Bluegill fishing is fantastic.  The overall size of the fish is about 1 inch longer than in past years.  The fish are averaging about 8 inches.  The best water depth has been 13-16 ft on the out...

    Lake Geneva has been rather slow in the last week.  The lake has been full of 3-4 inch bluegills throughout the water column which makes the game fish tricky to fish.  I’ve caught these bluegills anywhere from 6 to28 ft of water.  With the warm summer, the water temperature is some of the highest I’ve seen on Lake Geneva....

    A good week of true summer has helped holster the success of anglers in the Lakeland area for those willing to fish early and late.Temps in the upper 80’s brought the surface temps into the upper 70’s, even on the bigger lakes. Warm water means higher metabolism for fish, the shallows (during low light conditions) filled up with schools...

    The dog days of summer have hit early.  We have had excessive heat and high humidity.  The fishing has been rather slow.  The biggest problem on the lake has been the 3 inch bluegills that seem to be everywhere throughout the water column.  The most consistent bite remains the largemouth bass. The largemouth bass have been conc...

    Steve Suman The forecast indicates another wet week is possible, yet most shower and thunderstorm chances are at less than 50 percent – and with little threat of severe storms.

    Delavan lake fishing has been slower than recent years for this particular time of year.  The best bite on the lake remains the bluegills.  They are starting to go deeper off the weedline. Bluegill action has been fantastic in 15-20 ft of water.  The bigger fish have been located off the main lake points, such as the Yacht Club or t...

    By John Luthens  I stumble down the July banks of the Milwaukee River and it’s not a pretty sight: camouflage shorts, stained fishing vest, tennis-shoe waders that are laced in double knots for extra stability. The odds are less than even that the worn soles still hold enough tread to cling to the swirling bottom.  Splashing throu...

    Mid-Summer has not been typical. Morning temps in the 40’s put the early bite off.

Several cracking 21” this weekend, moving the interest in these battlers. ...

    Lake Geneva has been mediocre for fishing.  The lake continues to be in the regular summer pattern.  The most consistent bite has been northern pike or largemouth bass.  The bigger fish are moving off the weedline to their deep summer haunts. Northern Pike action has been best in Fontana on the break line in 27-31 ft of water. ...

    Weather inconsistencies have made for interesting fishing conditions this past week but with that said the bite has been very good.

    With the high water temperatures and algae bloom, Delavan Lake has been rather difficult to fish.  The big schools of largemouth have been few and far between.  The best action on the lake remains the bluegills, which have been above average in size this summer. Largemouth bass fishing has been best in 15-17 ft of water.  I’ve...
