    Despite waking up to snow on the ground (5/19) and cold winds, mild temps look to return by the weekend. It just seems like a long way off when you are sitting in a boat now!The past few days of wind and cold temps have slowed fishing, pushing some species out of the shallows. With forecasted highs only reaching high 60’s to low 70’s ...

    Lake Geneva fishing is starting to improve.  By Memorial Day it should be getting very good.  The current water temperature is about 55 degrees so the fish are still a bit sluggish but with warmer weather the bite will improve every day. Smallmouth bass are still in pre-spawn.  They are cruising their spawning flats in 8-12 ft of wa...

    Delavan lake has been relatively slow for this time of year.  The warm weather during the day has been great, but the nights have remained cool slowing the bite a bit.  There has been extreme weed growth by north shore and by the dam. Largemouth bass has been best in 5-6 ft of water in front of Lake Lawn Lodge.   You can either...

    By John Luthens Come the month of May, my yard is prone to dandelions and violets. The neighbors are civil, never coming right out and voicing their disapproval, but I can feel their sideways glances. They are hardworking and wonderful gardeners, edging their shrubs just so, mulching in the right places and manicuring their grass until it looks li...

    By Mike Yurk bassinmajor@yahoo.com In the twenty years I have lived in northwestern Wisconsin I thought I had seen it all on the opening day of Wisconsin’s fishing season. The fishing season began last Saturday. Over the years I have seen sleet storms and rain on opening day. I remember one year the ice came off the lake, I was going to fi...

    ASHLAND, Wis. – Although the Chequamegon Bay area is certainly known for its world-class smallmouth bass fishing, there is plenty to experience and enjoy even if your particular passion in life isn’t hauling in a trophy fish. Ashland is home to a full-service, 121-slip marina, conveniently located in the center of town.  While the...

    A big swing in the weather from highs of near 80 deg. last week, to rain, sleet and even some snow (today 5-12). Daily changes in temps, wind and cloud cover meant anglers needed to be on the move to find their quarry, especially walleye.Walleye: Good. Day to day things are changing. The warmer days with cloud cover brings walleyes into shallow w...

    With the warming water, the fishing has started to improve.  Most of the lake last week was around 60 degrees on the surface.  Both the largemouth and walleyes have become active. Largemouth bass are positioned in 2-6 ft of water.  Most of my success last week came from the boat launch channel to Lake Lawn golf course.  I was f...

    The 2105 fishing season started off with a bang last week with anglers enjoying near perfect conditions.  In addition to the great fishing, turkey hunters also enjoyed another outstanding week of hunting. The walleye bite was on fire with lots of fish in the 15 to 20 inch range being caught along with some real dandies in the mid to upper 20i...

    Despite beautiful weather, the opener of the 2015 gamefish season was not as wonderful as we hoped. At least we had open water for the opener and some walleyes did get caught, just not in the overall numbers or by as many anglers as expected.Walleyes: Fair. Some anglers found good success, but as a whole a lot of time went into not a lot of fish fo...

    What a difference a year makes, Last season we were wondering if our favorite lake would be ice free for the fishing opener and this year some lakes have had open water for a month already and the walleye finished their spawn weeks ago. Most anglers that hit the water for last weekends opener were reporting some good fishing, Crappie and other Panf...

    Opening Day is finally here.  Delavan Lake was a complete a zoo on Saturday.  By 6:00 a.m. the boat launch was just about full.  The pressure on the lake appears to be continuing into 2015.  Overall fishing was rather slow, some people did have success once they found some active fish. Crappie action has been okay in the Lake L...

    Lake Geneva has an extremely cold water temperature this time of year and the water clarity is very high.  This is typical for Opening day of fishing season but it doesn’t always make for the best fishing. Largemouth bass are active in Abbey Harbor or in Trinkes Bay.  They can be caught on split shot rigged nightcrawlers or a green...

    Steve Suman Hayward hosted the 50th Annual Governors Fishing Opener this past weekend and sunny skies, warm temperatures, and cooperative fish all combined for an outstanding game fish opener – perhaps the best on record. Forecasts indicate warm temperatures continue this week, but include numerous chances for much-needed spring rains. &ldq...
