    The lake appears to be starting to turnover.  The water temperature has been right around 57-59 degrees.  As the fall moves on, the bigger fish will put on their feedbags and the biggest fish of the year will be available for catching. Walleye fishing has been very good.  I’ve been averaging 10-12 fish per day.  I’m...

    The fall fishing patterns have started to materialize.  The smallmouth bass and the perch are starting to bite.  The water temperature has been in the upper 50’s and I don’t believe the lake has turned over yet, but it should occur in the next week or so. Smallmouth bass fishing has been good.  They have been both in the...

    Well that gorgeous last weekend of September seems long ago... as the first weekend of October brought cold, wind and rain. Early morning temps in the low 30's barely hit 39-40 deg. for highs, lake temps fell from upper 50's /low 60's to lower to mid 50's. If there was a light to the cold weekend, its for those waiting for the musky/sucker bite to ...

    Water temps have fallen to 48 to 52 degrees on most area lakes and the fish are starting to bite very well, I have been doing mostly Musky trips and the action is good, we are having a lot of luck with lures like Suicks, and Jakes. A lot of our fish are also coming on suckers and quick set rigs. Crappie action has picked up again...

    Long- time friend Bill Radek and his son Jeff visited Jim Ellis and brothers at the cabin in Vilas County last week and had moderate fishing success despite turn-over slowing things down from recent weeks.  This 19-inch walleye was caught by Jeff Radek on Alder Lake. If you’re questioning the size of the fish, let’s give it some...

    The last week of September saw some beautiful, warm weather. Lake surface temps climbed, conditions were prime for several species of fish and fall colors closed in on peaking. Smallmouth Bass: Very good. Smallies moved in on many lakes to feed on bait fish that moved in to shallows. X-Raps, Spinnerbaits- even glidebaits meant for muskys score...

    Fishing on Delavan continues to be difficult compared to normal action this time of year.  The constant high pressure have the fish in a lull pattern.  There isn’t any rhyme or reason for the fish locations.  If you can find an active school, you can catch a few, but if you don’t locate one it’s a real struggle.&nbs...

    Even though this should be some of the best times to fish Lake Geneva, the water temperatures have not been consistent enough to get the fish in their normal early fall patterns.  The fishing has been overall very slow. Smallmouth bass action has been very difficult.   I’ve been working the fish in the 20-25 foot depth range.&...

    From the Pendergrass Library For the trout-chasing angler the most sought after trophy next to an actual fish on the wall is ‘the photograph.’ You’ve seen the picture before, it’s of an angler - usually a guy - he’s got on his waders, the ball cap perched atop his head is askew, and he’s down on one knee.
