    It has been another outstanding week in central Wisconsin for outdoor activities.  The fishing continues to get better and better with outstanding catches of walleyes, crappies and bass along with some nice muskies. Hunters are having success with deer, bears and waterfowl.    The cooler temperatures that we have been experiencing ...

    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...

    It has been another great week for outdoor activities in central Wisconsin. Cooler temperatures are starting to move into the area creating a dynamic ecosystem of activity.

    Continuing to make hay when the sun shines on the September Wisconsin hunting and fishing seasons, I landed on the Embarrass River Friday with Guide Gordy Pagel to target smallies during a 6-hour float trip. Gordy is a great guide and things went smoothly as expected on this beautiful Wolf River tributary despite post-rain high water giving the fis...

    By DICK HENSKE Canada has always has had an appeal that won’t quit.  The beauty of rugged and unspoiled wilderness humbles you.  The areas are vast and private; a place where you can travel for miles and miles and have your breath taken away by every glimpse you catch. There are hundreds of clear sparkling fresh water lakes and end...

By Max O’Neil I recently had a gigantic smallmouth bass in the net while fishing Pewaukee Lake with my girlfriend, Christy Goudy.

The small waxies are still popular...

    Fishing on Delavan Lake has been overall very spotty.  The best bite on the lake has been bluegills or northern pike.  If you happen to run into a concentration of largemouth or smallmouth bass you can catch quite a few but if you find the school consider yourself lucky. The largemouth bass have been in and around the piers on the north ...

    Lake Geneva has been mediocre lately.  One day they are biting and the next the large and smallmouth bass seem to have disappeared.  We’ve settled into a stable weather pattern with warmer than average temps and it seems to be making fishing just a bit more difficult.  The best action on the lake has been smallmouth bass when y...
