Now it starts.  Too much to keep up with in Wisconsin, and that is one nice problem for an outdoorsman. OWO Columnist Wayne Morgenthaler and his son Neal spelled double trouble for two Richland County gobblers after four days of not filling tags. We put the May-June issue of On Wisconsin Outdoors to bed last week with 100,000 copies being distributed statewide. Look for your copy at any Kwik Trip statewide…that’s 400 stores ...

    Denny Murawska   Darting a fish with a blowgun is about as raw and primal as it gets. It is also challenging as can be. Catching too many fish lately? This game of ultra-close stalk and shoot will even the odds in favor of the fish. First of all, aiming is largely instinctual. There are no scopes or sights to aid you. At a five-...

    The summer patterns on Delavan Lake are in full swing.  The northern pike and largemouth bass are on the deep weedlines.  The walleyes have slowed quite a bit.  The one drawback for summer on Delavan Lake is the boat traffic.  Your best bet is early in the morning or in the evenings otherwise, it’s just too busy to fish. ...

    With the warm weather, the lake has been in a transition period.  There are still some fish to be caught shallow, however they are starting to push out to the deeper weedlines and become more scattered.  There is a bit more searching involved than fishing one small spot as we can when they are shallow. The best location for largemouth ba...

    Wow... Unbelievable fishing in Central Wisconsin for all species this past week.  With warmer water temperatures (now in the 70's) the fish are going on a feeding frenzy!  The musky bite is as good as it can get, with not only numbers of fish (which you don't often hear while talking about musky fishing ) but some real giants up...

    Hi Folks – Well, it’s been a little bit since my last report. The fishing has been so good it’s been hard finding time to get off the water.  When it comes to walleyes, the weed bite is going strong. Fish are relating to any new green weed and depth hasn’t been a factor. My customers have been boating quite a fe...

    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 ...

Smallmouth bass have been in a transition period.  They are done spawning and are now chasing...
