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 ...

    Delavan Lake fishing has been very good.  With the holiday weekend and the nice weather, the fishing pressure has been extreme.  For the best success, you want to fish early in the day or after about 4 p.m.    The walleye fishing has been awesome which is unusual for this late in the summer. Walleye fishing has been excell...

    With the warmer weather, the patterns are starting to change.  The fish are starting to move to deeper water.  The thermocline is starting to form, however, the weather is cooler than normal so it may take some time to fully form. Northern Pike fishing has been spotty.  Most of the pike are being caught in 20-23 ft of water sporadic...

    By John Luthens There are fishing days that set your heart to fluttering. A hard won limit, figuring out the magic color and presentation when every other boats running into the landing holds nothing but frustrated anglers. Or maybe that fish of a lifetime that smashes your tackle in an epic battle. Then there are the typical small-fish days and,...

    With the holiday weekend fishing was a little tougher due to the heavy fishing pressure.  The boats can be stacked several deep in the best fishing spots so patience is required.   Go early for the best success.  The fishing overall has been consistent with this time of year with several species available for the catch. Largemo...

    Lake Geneva fishing continues to be the best it’s been in several years.  Even though the water has been warming daily, the smallmouth and largemouth have remained in the shallow water and are actively feeding.  The smallmouth bass fishing has been very good in 12-15 ft of water.  The best locations have been by Knollwood and ...

    Finally, area lakes are seeing temperatures in the low 70’s, giving Largemouth Bass and Bluegill anglers what they have been looking for!  A few mayfly hatches have been reported lately and when they have been, they are coming in small patches, not entire lakes worth.  With this food source out of the way, walleyes should be a bit e...

    Fishing on Lake Geneva has been the best it’s been in the last five years.  The bass, both largemouth and smallmouth are still shallow and available for the catch. Smallmouth bass are being caught on split shot rigged nightcrawlers or Texas rigged plastic worms in green pumpkin color.  Look for the fish in 10-12 ft of water.  ...
