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 ...

    09/02/15--Reported by Jim Stroede Guide Service Muskie fishing is very good on Washburn County lakes right now, lots of nice fish being caught.  Topwaters and bucktails are the main producers at this time, soon cooler temps will spark a live bait bite that will last until ice up/ close of season. Walleyes have continued to be a bi...

    Steve Suman If the forecast for this week holds true, we will experience a very warm start to September! There are chances for rain throughout the week, but most are less than 20 percent – and that is 80 percent against showers! Pat at Happy Hooker says musky anglers should fish muskies along weedlines and breaks in 18-25 feet. “Use ...

    Following the previous weekends cold, windy weather, it’s been great to see some warm temps move back into the area. Lake temps dropped a lot last week, but are climbing back up, seeing some high 60’s to even low 70’s, with forecasted highs in the 80’s through Labor Day weekend. We should see surface temps well into the 70&...

    Overall the fishing on Lake Geneva has slowed a bit.  With the change in weather conditions, the fish are starting to go from their deep water summer haunts to the shallow weedlines.  The best bite on the lake is largemouth bass. Largemouth bass can be caught by Trinkes or in Geneva Bay in 15-20 ft of water.  The best presentation i...

Northern Pike fishing has been above average.  The fish are being caught on Thill Big fish slip bobbers in 10-12 ft of ...

    With cooler than normal temperatures this past week the fishing has kind of jump started the fall feeding binge.  We had great success on musky, walleye, bass, and panfish.  In addition to the great fishing the action in the woods has spiked as well and we are seeing increased activity at our bear baiting stations. A lot of the fish we...

    8/26/15- Reported by AAA Sports It's been a little slow on the fishing side of business. The weather warmed up today, and we had a few guys in heading out to the area lakes. No big fish to report. The muskie fisherman are getting more active. We still do not have muskie suckers in, but as we approach Labor Day, we are hoping to have those big...

    Steve Suman Cool and rainy to start this week, but a warming trend develops by mid-week through the weekend – though a few “chances” continue for showers and thunderstorms. “This is the time musky anglers get serious,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “Depending on the lake, muskies are over weeds in 6-14 feet. ...

    By John Luthens A ragged mist rolled in with the waves from Lake Superior. The summer sun had been in full control an hour earlier, and an hour’s drive away from the lake into Bayfield County. Now, there was a biting wind coming in from the north and the sand dunes were wearing across the scattered driftwood like sand paper. It didn’...

    This past week with the cooler weather, the fishing improved from the prior week.  Though it was a cold front that came through, I find that any weather changes seem to improve fishing on Delavan after weeks of constant high pressure.  The best bite is still the largemouth bass and bluegill. Largemouth bass are being caught on a couple o...

    Lake Geneva remains in the summer patterns, although the bite throughout the lake has been off some.  There are still fish to be caught but the game fish bite has been reduced. Largemouth bass fishing has been spotty throughout the lake.  The best locations have been the weed line in Trinkes or Geneva Bay.  The best concentration of...

    It has been a rather cool week for August but that is not a bad thing especially with bear baiting and the start of bear season right around the corner.  The cooler weather has also jump started the fishing this past week and we are seeing more activity while on the water.
