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 ...

    The summer heat wave is upon us.  The fishing remains pretty good as long as you get out early in the a.m. or late in the p.m.  The boat traffic on the lake makes fishing in the middle of the day pretty difficult.  Most of the fish are relating to deep water structure.  The best fishing is consistently the smallmouth or walleyes...

    By John Luthens The sun watched as I hurried up through central Wisconsin. It was high August and the ripening corn waved gently in the last glow of summer. My face felt flushed and itchy. Goldenrod along the road side was slowly working up a head of steam. In sloping fields beyond the ditches, round bales of hay were stacked as far as the eye cou...

    The fishing has slowed in recent day, it was still good early in the week but as the heat continued the fishing slowed tremendously.  The best bite on the lake remains the bluegills.  They are constant throughout the lake.  They are large and feisty. Early in the week the largemouth bass were on the deep weedlines in 18-20 ft of wat...

    With the 2015 bear seasononly a few weeks away we have been very busy getting bear baits attended to and stand locations set up.  The fishing has kind of taken a back seat to the continuous preparation of another busy season but we have still been able to put a few days a week on the water. Walleyes have been activ...

    08/12/2015-Reported by Jim Stroede  Fishing on Long Lake remains good. Walleyes, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, pike, and an assortment of panfish have made it into the boat with good regularity on recent trips.  Muskie action is beginning to heat up in Washburn County as well. Topwaters and bucktails are scoring the most fish....

    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...

    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 ...
