    Walleye seemed to be a little sluggish this week, My boat did catch them but we really had to work for them and downsize our lures even more then what I usually do. The Crawler bite is almost equal with leeches. Bluegill action is still strong, They have moved up a little more shallow to weed edges and fallen timber, almost like a post spawn patter...

    Steve Suman Mild days and cool nights continue – according to the forecast – with no mention of rain until Saturday.

    The overall bite on Lake Geneva has slowed a bit for the game fish.  Presently the bluegill bite has been phenomenal.  The water continues to be cooler than normal and the deep water schooling smallmouth bite hasn’t really started yet.  If you can find schools of minnows, the bass will be right behind them.  They are diffi...

    The action on Delavan Lake has improved from the previous weeks.  With the cooler summer, the bass haven’t moved out on the deep weedline very much.  The best action is in water depths of 6-13 ft of water.  You will find multiple species there. Largemouth bass fishing has been excellent in 6-8 ft of water.  The fish are a...

    It has been another great week in the Central Wisconsin area with some very nice catches of fish being caught.  The muskies bite continues to be very good with the best action early and late in the day.  Walleyes have been giving us a pretty good bite, but for constant action the crappies and bluegills are hard to beat.  Mos...

    The walleyes are being found in a variety of depths depending on the body of water. Once you find the depth, you are halfway done with the battle. Color, and speed are the next factor. Fish are falling victim to trolling right now. Cranks or spinners are working, so pick your poison and go after them. Fish are really following baitfish, and you wil...

    I fished the backwaters of the Wisconsin River near Lone Rock and found good action.  Northern Pike and Largemouth Bass were hitting on top water baits in the openings of lily pads.  Just before dark the bluegills and crappies picked up the action with white and pink plastic tubes.  The bug population is way down due to the cool even...

    By John Luthens The morning sun needled through a break in the peaks and dusted the bottom meadows as we broke base camp.  Wildflowers grew in bright clusters along the slopes and we took a deep breath of the scented wind coming down from above.  With a final tightening of straps and a rattling of carabineers, we shouldered our packs and...

    Fishing on Lake Geneva continues to be very good.  The one key to Lake Geneva is that the water is slowly warming and the thermocline is starting to form, which is adding a the deep water bite. Smallmouth bass are schooled in 20-25 ft of water.  Look for the fish by Fontana Beach or by Gage marine.  They can be caught using either a...

    Due to the colder than normal water temperatures, the fish are shallower than normal.  The best bite on the lake has been on a medium sucker fished on a lindy rig or Thill medium slip bobber.  Largemouth bass can be caught using 3 different methods.  They can be caught on black and blue jigs fished under the docks, a slip bobber rig...

    Hi Folks – We are in mid-summer and fishing has remained pretty good overall.  Fish have been active despite the cold fronts that have been battering the area. With walleye, we have been finding them in fairly shallow weeds, 5 to 13 feet depending on water clarity. When cold fronts hit they will move into 11 to 14 foot timber.  Wal...
