    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 ...

    Fishing on Lake Geneva has been improving since the formation of the thermocline.  Northern Pike and Smallmouth bass action has been very good.  Most of the fish are associating with deep water structure in 22-25 ft of water.  Smallmouth bass fishing has been excellent in 22-25 ft of water.  You want to key on deep water struct...

    Wow it’s been a crazy week in the Central Wisconsin area. Water temperatures have pushed up into the upper 70 degree range and the bite has taken a drastic turn. The walleye bite has been phenomenal this past week with several trips producing giant river walleyes in the 5 to 8 pound range.  The most productive bite...

    Steve Suman Forecasts indicate the string of warm days, mild nights – and thunderstorm chances – will continue in the North Woods.

    Fishing on Delavan Lake continues to be very good.  The only problem is the excessive fishing pressure.  For the best success, you want to be out very early in the a.m. or late in the afternoon.  The fish are holding in tight schools so when you catch one there are more to be had.  That is the reason you need to get out there ea...

    The fish are starting to come into their mid summer patterns.  The fish are moving deeper and are actively feeding.  The only problem has been the summer time boat traffic which has been excessive after 10 a.m. most days of the week. Smallmouth bass fishing is good if you can find the active school of feeding fish.  A few times last...

    I have distant but fond memories of being a Boy Scout. Now, in an older and supposedly wiser reality, I am still an active adult leader in our own local Boy Scout Troop. I believe there is inherent value in pitching a tent that will keep the rain out and building a fire that won’t burn down the forest. More importantly, there is value in prov...

    Fishing on Delavan continues to be very good.  The only limiting factor is an excess of anglers pursuing them.  With the difficult weather we’ve had, it has become clear that the days with rain & clouds have been producing the most action.  The walleye fishing has been the best it’s been in over 7 years, every trip I&...
