    Not a  noteworthy week in many respects. The wind finally laid down enough for better boat control, but some storms (and threat of storms), changed plans and patterns. Musky baits and top water tail baits (Whopper Ploppers and Pace Makers) have worked well over thick weed mats, especially pre – front conditions. Big bladed buck tails / ...

    Steve Suman This week’s forecast indicates a rather erratic mix of sun and showers, with – much like fishing for some species – no consistent pattern. Keep an eye on the sky, but do not allow weather “maybes” to affect your activity plans! “Musky action is good,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “but ...

    Water temps have dropped from the mid 80’s down to the high 60s through the mid- 70’s on most area waters. This temp drop has kick started the bite again and most anglers are reporting a moderate Panfish bite and a slow walleye bite on Phillips Area Lakes. Ross’s Sport Shop guides are finding crappie scattered from 8 to 25 feet o...

    Wow it’s been another crazy week in the Central Wisconsin area. Cool nights dipping down into the 40’s whoever heard of that in August? Oh well the fish don’t seem to mind too much they still have to eat, right?  I will tell you this; the cooler temperatures have been a pleasant surprise for the bear baiters! The wal...

    Ian with a Delavan Lake largemouth Delavan Lake fishing has been a little hit or miss.  There are still plenty of fish to be had, but the concentrations of recent weeks have dissipated a bit.  The warmer water has slowed down the action.  The best time has been the early morning hours or later in the afternoon.  The best bite...

    Ann with a Lake Geneva smallmouth Lake Geneva is now in it’s mid summer pattern.  Most of the quality fish have retreated to their deep water haunts to avoid the summer heat and excessive boat traffic.  Northern Pike fishing has been good.  The pike are in 30-33 ft of water.  They are biting on lindy rigged medium suck...

    Wisconsin experienced a fairly dry week, with some localized rains, especially in the north and northeast. Most rivers are running low and sandbars are open on many portions of the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway and ready for any late-summer campers. The dry conditions have caused fire danger levels to increase, especially in central Wisconsin whe...

    08/6/2015-Reported by Jim Stroede  Entering late summer the fishing remains good overall.  In my boat we've been picking up some nice walleyes, bass, and northern pike. Early morning has been the key time here lately.  Musky action is picking up too, some good fish have been caught locally. Good luck and good fishing,&nb...

    It was a warm, but very windy week, making boat positioning and fishing more than a little difficult. The high winds didn’t keep fish from biting, in some cases it brought action up, but the good bites were tough to access. Walleyes: Very Good. Yeah ok, not as good as Largemouth Bass, but it was a very good week of walleye fishing if you cou...

    Delavan Lake fishing has been excellent.  The only problem is you need to find a time to go when the boat traffic isn’t too bad.  Even during the week, there are between 100-200 boats fishing at any given time. Walleye fishing has been the best it has been in the past 5-10 years.  Both numbers and size are good.  Most of ...

    Fishing on Lake Geneva has been improving since the formation of the thermocline.  Northern Pike and Smallmouth bass action has been very good.  Most of the fish are associating with deep water structure in 22-25 ft of water.  Smallmouth bass fishing has been excellent in 22-25 ft of water.  You want to key on deep water struct...

    Wow it’s been a crazy week in the Central Wisconsin area. Water temperatures have pushed up into the upper 70 degree range and the bite has taken a drastic turn. The walleye bite has been phenomenal this past week with several trips producing giant river walleyes in the 5 to 8 pound range.  The most productive bite...

    Lots of hot weather for the Northwoods, raising temps on the water and putting fish in some very typical bite patterns. Large Mouth Bass: Very good.

    Fishing on Delavan Lake continues to be very good.  The only problem is the excessive fishing pressure.  For the best success, you want to be out very early in the a.m. or late in the afternoon.  The fish are holding in tight schools so when you catch one there are more to be had.  That is the reason you need to get out there ea...
