    John Luthens The eight-point buck charged from the darkened field. I shot a quick glance up at the digital clock. It blinked 4:52 a.m. The temperature readout next to the overhead clock said 34 degrees, and when I looked back down I was close enough to see frost tingeing the field grass and envision steam rolling from the brute’s nostrils. I...

    Warm temperatures are sticking around this fall encouraging outdoor participation.  With that said the fishing and hunting continue to be hot.  Fishing remains very good with musky and walleyes taking the center stage.  Most of the action has come from deeper water in the 8 to 12 foot range with some fish holding even deeper. The ...

    Big saugers like the one Mike Yurk is holding are too big to keep but they are fun to catch. Mike Yurk bassinmajor@yahoo.com The fish slammed my bait. It hit hard enough I probably didn’t need to set the hook but I did anyway out of instinct. My spinning rod was doubled over as the fish took off.  “I’m going to need the n...

    11/9/15- Reported by AAA Sports  The fall fishing has been spotty. Of course, there are not as many anglers out there, as many of them take to the woods this time of year. Muskie fishing is going well. This week looks pretty good for weather, so we suspect we will have a few guys headed out during the day. We'll keep you posted!

    Getting Aggressive at First Ice The first ice period can produce some of the best ice fishing opportunities of the entire season.  Some of the biggest fish of the season, and some of the greatest numbers show up at this time.  I believe that there are a couple of different reasons for this activity.  One being that these fish are at...

    November 2, 2015 Hayward Lakes Area Outdoor Report Steve Suman While the forecast mentions chances of rain (and snow) throughout the week, this IS November in the North Woods so it is hard to complain about highs in the 60s (at least through mid-week)! Many hunting seasons are now underway, but fall also offers excellent fishing for anglers who ...

    Cool and wet! While the threat of an early snow was on last week’s forecast, few people saw the little snow we did get as it melted before dawn. Water temps have dropped this past week, low surface temps at 45 degrees to as high as 52 degrees. Could actually climb a little as forecast for low 60’s scheduled for Mon thru Wed. of this wee...

      The late-season warm weather the northland experienced this year provided for some noteworthy stream fishing, according to guide Luke Kavajecz with Anglers All in Ashland.

    What an outstanding week it has been. Big muskies, lots of walleyes and a few nice bucks. All taken right here in central Wisconsin. This past week we have soon an abundance of walleyes on our trips. Most of the fish have been in the 14 to 16 inch range but we have picked up a few nice fish in the mid to upper 20’s.  The best action is ...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The fall is a great time to take a trip to northern Wisconsin around the Hayward area.  Most small lakes and rivers do not get much fishing action.  Knowing what baits to use and what areas to target is key to being successful. I generally won’t head north until they have a good hard frost and most of the lea...

    Despite some cold nights (temps dipping into frost time) daily average temperatures have been a few degrees above normal, leaving the lakes cool downs in a holding pattern. Almost daily changes in the wind direction, more so temperature change, have been the deciding factor in angler’s success. The consistent water temps have actually helped ...

    Steve Suman The North Woods enjoyed a very nice, long fall, and even with this week’s forecast including rain and “other” forms of precipitation, conditions are still relatively comfortable for this time of year. Regardless of the weather, one bright spot to end this week is an extra hour of sleep – IF you remember to turn...

    By John Luthens It was time for me and Tom to go to confession in the cathedral of October. I needed to reflect on the wanton neglect of my civil duties that had festered like weeds from a trout fishing addiction. I needed to beg forgiveness for the awful state of my torn waders and fly lines, and I needed an exorcism to absolve the smell of a sum...
