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 ...

Musky action was also good, Water temps are in the mid to upper 40's on most area lakes and the fish are starting to move deep and put the feed bag on. Ross's Sport Shop Guide Boats have been finding Walleye and Crappies in th...

A guy like Tom is a patient watcher, studying the bre...

    The time is now for those fishing for Musky! Water temps have dropped into the upper 40's to low 50's. Most small to mid sized lakes have turned quickly thanks to overnight temps into the upper 20's. Mid fall patterns are here. Musky: Very Good- Excellent Hard to believe the rating is so high but great musky action has turned on. Multi fish days, ...

    Steve Suman Relatively mild temperatures continue through this week, though they come with a few chances for precipitation.

    Fishing has been great the last week in the Phillips Area, I have been mostly doing Musky trips this time of the year, Last week we put 8 of the 9 Veterans that attended the Wisconsin Veterans Fishing Camp on Musky with the Vets combining to catch 14 total Musky. On most of the days on the water this week we have had multiple Musky in the b...

    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...

    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...
