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 ...

    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. Smallmouth Bass:  Good-Very good.  Post spawn action has increased.  Exceptional fish being caught and released as smallies putting on the feed bag after going without during ...

    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...

    Steve Suman This year, June 21 is both Father’s Day and the summer solstice – the day of the year providing the most sunlight. Forecasts show another wet week, but rain or shine this Sunday, show dad a good time! “Musky anglers should fish break and weed edges out to 10 feet with bucktails, topwaters, crankbaits, and gliders,&rd...

    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...

    Bay Lake Charters out of Algoma, Wisconsin is happy to report some good early action for salmon and trout.  In the past few days we have been able to work depths of 80 to 200 feet of water with success landing some large kings pushing that 20 pound mark, along with some rainbow trout and lake trout.   Being successful early in the seas...

    By John Luthens Horicon Marsh straddled the southeastern Wisconsin Counties of Dodge and Fond du Lac and sprawled before us. From the outer boundaries, it was hard to tell where the cattails ended and the horizon began. Puffball clouds swept across a soft June sky, and the birds of summer called from hidden waters inside the marsh. It was a tailor...

    The weather remains inconsistent so there hasn’t been much of a warm up in the water temperatures.  The fishing is above average for these temps, but we’re still waiting for the great improvement to occur.   The water temperature is hovering between 55 and 60 depending on location. Some smallmouth bass are starting to spa...

    It has been another great week in Central Wisconsin with very good fishing for all species.  Water temperatures are in the mid to upper 60 degree range and with this upcoming weeks forecasted warmer temperatures we should start seeing water temperatures well into the 70”s.  The musky bite has been very good with action co...

    Steve Suman This week’s forecast predicts moderate temperatures, though far too many chances for rain showers. Do not let a chance of getting wet stop you from enjoying any and all outdoor recreation the North Woods offers!

    After another week of cold mornings and mild afternoons, it looks like the coming week should level off to more moderate temps. A stretch of relatively stable weather with highs in the low to mid 70’s every day is coming this week. That stability should help anglers pattern their favorite species.Pike: Good. Action is picking up nicely, but...

    The weather patterns remain a constant battle.  The best bite on the lake is Northern Pike and largemouth bass.  The shallow bite is still the way to go.  The boat traffic on the warm days is increasing by the day.  The best day last week was Thursday and there were in excess of 150 boats on the water.  The key to fishing r...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The rains have settled down but most of the big trout streams are too dirty to fish unless you go to the headwaters.  The smaller streams have cleared out and still provide good action.  If I am fishing waters that let me keep trout, then I like to fish with night crawlers with a small split shot.  Panther Mart...
