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 ...

    East wind and lots of it along with cooler than usual temperatures postponed several events that have usually transpired by now. On the larger lakes, largemouth bass, bluegills and pumpkinseeds have not started bedding yet. Plump females of all three of these species are being caught by anglers targeting walleyes and smallmouth bass along outside ...

    Steve Suman The week ahead looks to include mild highs and cooler nights, with a warming trend developing late in the week. As always, the forecast includes rain and thunderstorms chances, but with most showing low percentages. There are many events scheduled this summer – check the Upcoming Events calendar (below) for a brief list with hot...

    It's getting warm out and live bait is becoming tricky to keep alive right now, One reason is that todays live bait comes from longer distances then it did in the past, When I first started working at Ross's Sport Shop I ran minnow trap lines daily, those minnows were coming from stream to the stores tanks to sell fresh to customers. Now DNR regula...

    The water has been warming.  Like Lake Geneva, Delavan fish are in the early summer patterns about a week or two later than normal.  Boat traffic is intense, so get to the lake early for the best fishing and plan to be off the water by late morning. I had my first northern pike fishing trip of the season.  The fish are not in great ...

    The fish are starting to be in their summer patterns.  We are in the window where the largemouth bass are located on the major weed flats in Trinkes Bay and Williams Bay.  You can get large numbers of quality fish in a short period of time. Smallmouth bass have been in a transition period.  They are done spawning and are now chasing...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The rain has muddied some waters, especially the big three trout streams (Pine River, Willow Creek, and Mill Creek).  Small streams are the best and fish at the headwaters.  Best way to fish these small streams is to bring the waders and fish upstream with a gold panther martin size 3.  The Wisconsin River is ...

    There has been a bit of a mayfly hatch going on witch is screwing up fishing a little. The bigger Gills and Walleye have been a little tight lipped but with a little work they can be caught. Smallmouth Bass are on the beds and hitting hard on most area lakes. We have been getting most of our smallies on larger lures while Musky fishing but I have ...

    By John Luthens The afternoon trees sank with humidity and the path to the golden cove was thick.  Tall grasses fought for the sun’s rays with growing strands of nettle.  The stinging vines were just tall enough to bite unseen at the ankles.  I could smell lilacs blooming but I couldn’t see the flowering bushes in the ju...

    The fishing right now continues to be very good overall. Water temps are in the 70's depending on the lake, but the fish are active and it is a great time to be out catching fish.  Finding the walleyes right now seems to be more of a spot on spot situation. They are sitting on certain areas, but when you find them, you should be able to catch...

    Minocqua Area Fishing Report: At least all the wind has kept the mosquitos at bay. Wind has been the biggest hindrance to fishing for most species. Where possible and with proper boat control some of the best walleye fishing of the season came last week, but the wind made it work! Walleye: Excellent to Good. Action slowed some after the full moon....

    Happy Fathers Day!  Fishing on Delavan continues to be very good. The fly hatch of last week has disappeared and the fishing has been improving every day.  The largemouth bass and bluegills are post spawn and are migrating out to the weedlines.  This week, largemouth bass have been in two different locations one is the deep weedline...

    Happy Fathers Day to all you fishing dads out there.  Lake Geneva fishing remains really good.  The summer boat traffic has started however, so plan to be off the lake by about 10:30 a.m. to avoid the waves and chaos, especially on weekends.  I had a 8 hour guide trip planned for Saturday and the boat traffic drove us in after about ...

    BY BILL THORNLEY SPOONER– It poured on Saturday, June 7, the day scheduled for the Chuck Revak Memorial Kids Fishing Day in Spooner. There would be no canoe rides, or even fishing as the dark skies offered a blustery mix of driving rain, thunder and lightning. Even a family of Canada geese huddled together on the shores of the Yellow River F...

    Despite cooler temps this week, we seem to be in an early summer mode. Water temps have settled into the mid 60's range. Enough warmth seems to be working its way down to help push some bug hatches as a couple species of dragon flies, some types of midge and what looks like march brown mayflies have hatched. The thing to keep an eye out for is the ...

    Outstanding fishing right now in central Wisconsin for all species.  The muskies are very active and we are seeing some very nice fish coming from shallow weedy areas.  Walleyes continue to be a pleasant catch and along with numbers, we are seeing some nice sized fish as well.  The crappies and bluegill bite is about as ...

    By Mike Yurk The sky seemed to touch the water of Chequamegon Bay while a steady light rain dimpled the surface. Doug Hurd of Eagan, Minn., and I were drifting along a swampy shoreline flipping jerk baits into the shallow water. Doug’s boat was sitting in about four feet of water but we were casting to less than a foot. We caught our fir...

    This past week started fast and was excellent but by the end of the week, we had another lake fly hatch that slowed the bite immensely.  That should dissipate by the early part of next week and then it will be back to good fishing. Walleye fishing has started to pick up.  Night anglers and even day time fishermen have been catching multi...
