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 ...

    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...

    It’s been another fantastic week in Central Wisconsin. With turkey season in full swing and fishing getting better and better daily it doesn’t get much better than this. The number one fishing topic this week has to be the OPENER.  With the 2015 open water fishing season upon us, anxious anglers will be headed to their f...

    By John Luthens I held my breath, lying in the cattails and watching through binoculars as the pair of loons dove around the point and glided into the bay. The nest arched from the water 50 yards in front of me and into a chilly April morning. As the sun cracked the horizon, I thought for a moment they might enter the nest. But the birds upended a...

    Hi Everyone, The 2015 Winnebago walleye tagging effort is in the books and the numbers are in.  Walleye tagging efforts took place from 03/24/2015-04/22/2015 and fish were primarily collected during electrofishing surveys, but we also tagged some walleye during some yellow perch and muskellunge fyke netting surveys.  In total, there were...

    Finally!  Accessibility will not be an issue for the opener, a first in the past couple years.  With ice out in the rear view, most all but a few large lakes are done with the walleye spawn and a gradual warming trend for the weekend means things look good for opener.  While cold nighttime temps and mild daytime temps saw surface w...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler We had enough rain to bring streams up to almost normal levels.  Catch and release is still in effect, so return the trout back into the creeks as quick as possible.  Spin casting or fly casting has had good success.  I prefer spinners in the small sizes.  Gold or silver Panther Martins work the best on sm...

    A week plus of June-like daytime temps took care of all ice (Trout out as of this weekend).  Many smaller lakes had temps shoot up so quickly as to have had the walleyes finish up spawning.  Sunday saw temps back down into April reality, but, with many lakes in the high 40’s already, spawning should continue, just not as quick...
