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...

    April 2, 2019 Carolyn from Anglers All reports: The Rivers are high right now. Long Bridge and Short Bridge on the west side are open but have not met yet. People are still venturing out but the top layers of the ice are starting to candle so make sure to call ahead for ice conditions and safety. Trout have been coming into the shallows off the riv...

    Last week Thursday and Friday fishing started to get really good.  Crappies turned on and anglers were doing very well.  The weekends weather pattern with high winds and cold, though, slowed fishing down a bit.  Though the forecast this week looks to get warmer and warmer which will turn the pan fishing on again.  Ice conditions...

    Salmon and trout stocking in Lake Michigan is a critical management activity that state fisheries managers say has contributed to robust fishing in Lake Michigan for the past four decades. A three-year Lake Michigan management strategy was developed in 2017 following more than two years of discussion and input from more than 500 anglers, business ...

    March 25, 2019 Steve Suman   The forecast predicts somewhat warmer temperatures this week and Wednesday is the only day showing a slight chance of showers.

    Warmer temperatures and easier travel (by foot) has brought more anglers out to do some late season ice fishing.  Snow pack has gone down on lakes, with the exception of southern shores where the sun doesn’t hit the snow to melt it down as fast.  There is still plenty of ice, reports vary from 20” to 25”+. ...

    This past has been another one of many changes. We are starting to see a few guys hit the open water below area dams as well as a few brave souls still venturing out on the ice for some late ice fishing. The guys that are fishing the water below the dams are fishing from shore as well as getting out in some small boats and they are picking up so...

    March 18, 2019 Steve Suman   According to the current forecast, once we move past Tuesday night and Wednesday skies clear and temperatures turn mild (for awhile), with highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s. It was a big change in a short period! The down side is dealing with wet and sloppy conditions – but not too much to ask for warmer...

    Well things are turning around a little bit and we are finding a few locations to get on the ice.  With the recent warmer weather we have been seeing some of the ice is becoming accessible but it is sloppy. We also found some okay conditions further south in the state and we were able to get on some very good perch fishing.  Again acces...

    A new catfish rule establishes regulations for taking catfish by hand or with a bow and arrow or crossbow.  Legislation passed in 2017 allowed catfish to be taken with these methods for the first time, but this rule will set seasons, gear restrictions, length limits and bag limits to maintain sustainable harvest levels with these new methods.&...

    March 11, 2019 Steve Suman   Temperatures should show some improvement this week, though the current forecast calls for rain, fog, and some snow, and no sunshine until the weekend.

    Well a few local anglers have been trying to get out on the area lakes but it has been tough sledding.  Between the knee deep snow and slush it is almost more work than it is worth to get to many area ice fishing locations. But… The few adventurous guys that are getting out are having good success on both inland lakes and some backwater...

    Here we go again…. More snow and more cold, when is it going to end?  This past week has been another one for the books with record snowfalls and low temperatures and from the looks of it that trend is going to continue into March.  The lakes of central and north central Wisconsin are covered with several feet of snow and under tha...

    Gamefish seasons almost always seem to close rather quietly around here.  Late ice anglers tend to gear up for panfish.  But this may have been one of the quietest in a long time. The two feet plus of snow combined with the two feet of ice that is sandwiching, in some places, 8-10” of slush and water is making a work out of our spo...
