Now it starts.  Too much to keep up with in Wisconsin, and that is one nice problem for an outdoorsman. OWO Columnist Wayne Morgenthaler and his son Neal spelled double trouble for two Richland County gobblers after four days of not filling tags. We put the May-June issue of On Wisconsin Outdoors to bed last week with 100,000 copies being distributed statewide. Look for your copy at any Kwik Trip statewide…that’s 400 stores ...

    With the cooler weather, the water temperature has dropped 7-8 degrees in the course of a week.  The fish are starting to go into their fall patterns.  They are starting to feed on minnows instead of nightcrawlers. 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...

    Kurt’s Island Sport Shop 8/25/2015 Lots of wind, some rain and a cool down the past week put a kabosh on the areas fishing for most species. Surface temps of lakes dropped in to the mid-upper 60’s as daily high temps ran 10-15 degrees below our late August average. The recent weather seemed more Sept. / Oct.ish than what the calendar r...

    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. We are having a lot of activity right now at our bear baiting stations...

    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, 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.
