With Spring Turkey season just around the corner, Henry USA sent us a video now posted on our homepage that I know you’ll get a kick out of. The point is though, young hunters and smaller hunters won’t get a kick out of it at all. The wait for a gobbler can be too long to question whether or not you’re packing the right turkey load when he does show up (Dick Ellis Photo) Henry wanted to test the viability of their beautiful ...

    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...

    Steve Suman This week’s forecast indicates more seasonal temperatures, with some wind and possible showers, but “sunshine” is the dominate term nearly every day.

    Close to peak colors and peak musky meet sucker time. Good fishing for many of our favorite fall species plus a beautiful show to be outdoors if not a bit cool and windy at times. Musky: Very Good. Personally not as excellent as last year but a very strong sucker bite. Winds letting anglers move bladed quick set rigs with 12-16” suckers. Act...

    Fall is upon us.  Cold nights and mild daytime temps have brought color to the trees and dropped the lake temps into the upper 50’s.  This high pressure system that allowed those cold nights (launch time temps at 32-34 degrees) also slowed fishing from the active bite it was.  Musky:  Fair-Good.  Action tailed off wi...

    With the cooler weather the fishing on Delavan has started to improve.  The only downfall is that because of the fall season, we had to deal with a very harsh east wind for most of the week.  The fish were stacked on main lake points that were wind blown.  It was hard to fish there due to the wind though. Largemouth bass have been s...

    With the cooling water temperature, the fish are starting to move into their fall patterns.  The main lake points seem to have been producing most of the fish.  Most of the fish are moving toward Cedar Point, Black Point and Maytag point. Smallmouth bass fishing has been a little slow with the strong east winds.  It has made fishing...
