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...

    Its gun deer season, so little going on over the water, but a few diehards still venturing out. Muskie: Good. Fewer anglers and a little less action, but fish still being caught – mostly on suckers. Last day to fish Musky is Nov 30th, so some time left. Crappies: Good. Gets the nod over Walleyes as good numbers and big fish (14 plus inches)...

    Windy weather and almost steady rain has kept us from fishing and hunting as much as we would have liked to this past week, but we did manage to get out and enjoy some time both in the woods and on the water.  Water temperatures are in the low 40’s but with the forecasted weekend temperatures dipping down into the low teens, don’...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler Water temperatures are dropping fast but so far no snow yet.  If you are fishing the backwaters, fishing is slow right now.  Cloudy days with little wind are preferred and live bait is the best.  If you are fishing for pan fish use wax worms on a small ice fishing jig with a bobber set at about a foot from the ...

    With the 2015 gun deer season only a week away most fishermen have put their boats and gear away for the season and are now preparing to take the woods.  But with that said there is still plenty of great fishing going on right now in the central Wisconsin area. Deer hunters are anxiously waiting for next weekend to arrive with over 600,000 pe...

    11/11/15-Reported by Jim Stroede Guide Service Muskie fishing remains strong in Washburn County. We are still catching good numbers of nice fish. Most of our action is coming on live suckers with quick strike rigs in 10 to 20 feet of water.  I've been hearing of nice crappie fishing on area waters but haven't had the opportunity to chec...

    Sometimes even fly fishers have to use other tactics Occasionally, how and when we fly fish is negatively influenced by the weather. That means if a fly fisherman like myself really wants to fish, he has to revert to other methods. A prime example is this past August. I was at our cottage in northeastern Wisconsin. It was after supper and the win...

    Unseasonably mild weather for the first third of November has kept plenty of fishing opportunities open, but few anglers out to enjoy it. Musky: Good. While suckers on quick set rigs accounting for over half the action, gliders and jerk baits as well as slow moving rubber baits also producing. Walleye: Good. Most over deep water humps and transit...

    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 ...

    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!
