    Fishing remains fantastic.  The fish are in their mid summer pattern and they have schooled up and can be caught if you find the schools.                 Northern Pike fishing has been relatively slow this week.  I think most of the problem is that the bluegills...

    The fishing in the central Wisconsin area has been very good this past week. The average water temperatures are now in the upper 70’s to low 80’s and yes you read that right low 80’s but the fishing remains very good. We had a great week catching good numbers of walleyes along with some good eating sized fish we also picked u...

    Lake Geneva fishing has been great even considering the hot weather.  Both smallmouth and largemouth can be readily caught in relatively shallow water.  Lake Trout fishing has been phenomenal.  You want to fish first light or in dusk conditions.               &nbs...

    The dry weather continues, and the good fishing continues as well.  Most of the fish are in their late summer pattern.  The fish are a bit deeper than most people are fishing.  Most of the fish are in 15-20 ft of water.  The boat traffic has been crazy, you want to get to the launch before 6 a.m. and off by 11 a.m.  The lak...

    July 8, 2019 Steve Suman   The forecast indicates Tuesday night through Wednesday night could be a bit rough and wet, but is somewhat encouraging from then through the weekend.

    With the temperatures stabilizing this past week we have seen a surge in activity from some really big fish. Not that we haven’t been catching big fish already this year but this past week some real giants have made their way to the boat. If you are into really big fresh water fishing the musky activity has gone through the roof and the bi...

    July 1, 2019 Steve Suman   According to forecasts, a moderately warm week lies ahead, with some rain possible. Rain chances after Monday night are about 30 percent – which is 70 percent against showers – so not bad odds! Whatever your plans for July 4th, have a safe and fun holiday celebration!   “Summer started slo...

    Water temperatures have shot up this past week and are now in the mid to upper 70 degree range. This recent swing in temperatures has really had an impact on the fishing and it has changed things quite a bit. Our walleye bite has been the most impacted this past week and it has transitioned to a much deeper bite with most of our fish now holding...

                Fishing on Lake Geneva is pretty good right now.  It’s tough to get out on Geneva since Delavan fishing is outstanding but plenty of fish can be caught on Geneva too and the boat launch is much more pleasant.           &n...

                Fishing remains excellent.  You need to go early to avoid the crowds.  Most days there are between 100-150 fishermen out on the lake.  The fishing has been awesome for bluegills and largemouth bass.             L...

    Fishing remains very good.  Most of the game fish are very active with the warmer water temp.  The water temps haven’t risen enough to make the fish go deep.  Most of the fish can be found in 15 ft of water or less.  Right now all the fish have completed spawning and are aggressively feeding. Largemouth bass can be caught...
