    Fishing has improved over previous weeks.  Like, Lake Geneva, I’m having a hard time with active Northern Pike but everything else is biting substantially better.  This past week with the cooler weather the largemouth bass moved tighter to shore.  My best depth was 6-8 ft of water.  I’ve been catching them on top wa...

    This past week seemed to be slow with summer vacationers, making Lake Geneva very pleasant to fish with very little boat traffic.  Due to the weather being cooler than normal, the fishing is good with the exception of the northern pike.  Northern Pike fishing has been slow due to the fact that the pike have not made it down to the thermo...

    Finally some summer like weather moved in over the weekend, bringing some typical mid-summer action as well as some non-typical mid July occurrences such as mayfly hatches! On just about any other summer, off shore gravel humps provide anglers plenty of opportunity for walleyes and small mouth bass action. Until the past week, this action has bee...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler I should have taken the family out for Friday night fish fry as it was windy out.  I decided that Friday night would be better spent fishing with my son and brand new daughter-in-law, Kali, fishing for northerns and bass near Hayward, Wisconsin.   A retired friend of mine let us use one of his old row boats on thi...

    Lake Geneva has been up and down with fishing success.  Some days are better than others due to the cooler water temperatures and the scattered bait fish.  If you can find the pods of minnows, you will have good success on the smallmouth bass in the deeper water. The best bite on the lake has been the smallmouth bass and bluegills. Blueg...

    Due to the cold front last week, fishing was tough for most of the week.  As the week went on and the warmer weather moved in the fishing improved immensely.  Bluegill action started to improve by later in the week.  They were in 11-14 ft of water off the weedline.  The best approach is a split shot rigged leaf worm.  Look...

    The cold fronts that moved thru last week slowed the bite down a bit, Fishing was picking up a little by the weekend but fish were hitting very lightly and you really needed to finesse them but they are still eating. Ross's sport shop guides are still doing well on Walleye, we are finding them scattered from 8 to 22 feet of water and catching th...

    For a 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 atop his head is askew, and he’s down on one knee. Across his arms and in his hands rests a trou...

    The weather this year seems to be getting a lot of conversation. Summer has been filled with plenty of warm and cold fronts, with several inches of rain mixed in. It's affecting the fish, but it's also making for good fishing on the warm sunny days.  The walleyes this summer seem to be a bit spooky. What I mean by that is if you're ...

    ASHLAND, Wis. – Lake Superior in summer means plenty of smallmouth bass in Chequamegon Bay.  The smallmouth bass fishing season runs from mid-May through late October, the latter considered to be “trophy month” for “smallies.” The 12-mile-long bay’s rock piles and breakwater structures make for ...

    “Here’s a fish,” Doug said. He extended his spinning rod, waited a moment and then yanked back. His rod was bent in half.      “It’s a good fish,” he added. The fish took off and the rod tip was lunging. Doug stopped the fish and turned it around but the fish took off again. A moment ...

    Lake Geneva has been producing a lot of fish.  The fish have moved from the shallow weed flats to the deep rocky points.  Smallmouth bass are starting to school.  The best location has been by the channel by Fontana Beach or by the Yacht Club in Fontana.  The best approach is lindy rigging nightcrawlers or medium suckers. ...

    The last week or so the best walleye bite has been on flats of 12 to 14ft with scattered wood.  The walleye that we have been catching have small leeches stuck to the roof of their mouths, so that can mean they are feeding in mud.  The mayfly larva that are down in the mud seem to be just starting to come out which is attracting all types...
