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...

    Lake Geneva fishing has been very good.  The fish still remain in relatively shallow water.  The best bite is in 12-16 ft of water.  The thermocline is forming but is not yet complete. Northern Pike action has been good in the 30-32 ft depth range.  Look for them near the Fontana Beach or in Williams Bay.  The best bait is...

    Delavan Lake fishing has been great.  The algae bloom that was all encompassing the lake subsided with last weeks rain.  The water clarity is above average for this time of year. Walleye fishing has slowed with the warmer water temperatures.  The walleyes I’ve been catching have been while fishing for something else in 15-16 f...

    Beautiful day to get out on the area lakes. Spawn is pretty much over and the fish are going deeper. We had 2 couples in this week that nick-named  Rick , the" fishing magician". They caught northern, bass, perch, crappies and sunnies. Mostly on Spooner with the traditional jig and waxie for the panfish and crankbaits for the la...

    Things really heated up this past week with virtually non-stop action from all species.  Water temperatures have steadied out in the mid-70  degree range and the fish have really been putting on the feed bag. Musky fishing has been really good with early mornings and late afternoon/evening being the best time to be on the water.  ...

    Nice days, but, cold mornings have been the past week’s biggest drawback.  Morning temps in the 40’s dropping surface temps on some lakes back into the 60’s.  Afternoons and evening have been the best times to fish overall.  Largemouth Bass:  Good – Very good.  Even this species has been affected by...

    Steve Suman This summer is one for the Scouts – “Be prepared!” While the forecast does indicate some sunshine this next week, it shows more chances for rain and thunderstorms. Do not allow weather predictions to deter you from enjoying outdoor activities. Make plans, follow them, and be a good Scout and go prepared! “Unsta...

    Fishing on Lake Geneva remains excellent.  The best success remains in the 12-14 ft water depth.  The fish have been very active with the warmer water. Largemouth bass action has been very good by Trinkes and by piers 1-20.  The best approach is Senkos fished Wacky style or split shot rigged nightcrawlers.  The fish appear to b...

    Even though you’ve read reports about the blue-green algae, the fishing remains very good.  All the species are in their summer patterns and biting aggressively.  Because of the algae, pleasure boat traffic has been substantially less than normal this time of year.  I’m not an expert on the algae, but I don’t think ...

    I have always had a respect for and a fear of fire.  I have stared into a blazing fire and I have caught myself nearing a hypnotic state.  At our onetime property up in Phelps, I did enjoy a good marshmallow roasting, stone rimmed campfire and creating s’mores on the beach. Also, my wife and I really do savor a glowing fire in our f...

    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...

    Captain Todd Lensing Being a professional waterfowl guide for nearly 15 years, I’ve tried many products on the market and often find myself going back to keeping it simple and basic. When I got bit by the bass fishing bug 10 years ago, you would think I would apply the same logic I’ve learned from my waterfowling experience to my fishi...

    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...

    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 ...
