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 ...

    Fishing on Delavan Lake continues to be outstanding.  The bass, walleye and northern are all biting well.  This should continue as long as the stable weather continues. Walleyes are located in 22-24 ft of water off main lake points.  They are aggressively hitting jigging Rapala’s or ¼ oz Echo tails.  Fire Tiger and...

    It was another great week in central Wisconsin and with lots of upcoming outdoor activities a person just doesn’t know where to start.    I know for starters I am personally attending the Mercury Marine Summer Challenge Musky Tournament in Eagle River run by the P.M.T.T.  This should be a blast, and wit...

    Despite it being the beginning of summer (so says the calendar), weather conditions have not been very summer like.  Constantly changing weather, wind direction and some cold nights (one morning launched at 38 degrees) have made coming up with any type of productive pattern difficult. Musky:  Good-Very good.  Best in afternoons and ...

    Steve Suman The forecasts state (repeatedly) chances of rain and thunderstorms at 30-40 percent – which is 60 to 70 percent against rain and thunderstorms. Go with the odds! “We will endure what we receive,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “but a week of stable weather would improve fishing! “Muskies are near shallow weed...

    John Luthens  It didn’t hit us right away. We were almost home from the airport before it started to sink in.

Due to the four-letter word of work and the six-letter word...

    Fishing on Lake Geneva remains fantastic.  It has been the best it has been in 5-6 years.  Both numbers and large fish are being caught.  Usually the smallmouth bass have been long gone by this time of year, however they remain available for the catch in shallower water. Smallmouth bass fishing has been outstanding.  The fish h...

    Wind shifts and the random down pour have thrown a few curves at anglers this past week.  Steady temps though have brought some stability to our fishing.

    Fishing on Lake Geneva has been fantastic.  Both largemouth and smallmouth bass are in the shallows and biting aggressively.  When you include the pan fish, it has been fairly common to catch over 100 fish in a 4 hour trip.  This is the time of year where going through 10 dozen nightcrawlers in a trip occurs frequently. Smallmouth b...

    Fishing on Delavan Lake has been outstanding.  Most of the fish have moved to the outside weed line giving anglers the opportunity to fish without dealing with the green slimy weeds.  The fishing pressure has been a bit below average as well. Northern pike are being caught while slowly back trolling medium suckers in 17-19 ft of water.&n...

    There was an outstanding musky bite this past week with action on many varieties of baits. Top water baits were surprising for this early in the season but the action was very good running the Lake X Lures - Fat Bastard.  In addition to the top water baits doing so well traditional bucktails, twitchbaits and jerkbaits all...

    Steve Suman Following forecast “issues” the past two weeks, it appears this week the prognosticators covered all their bases! Let’s hope they are correct on the good predictions and (again) wrong on the remainder! “Warmer weather and a full moon improved fishing,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “Fish muskies a...
