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 ...

    Action is heating up on the local river system with abundant walleyes being taken by area anglers. Most action is on jig and minnow combinations in the deeper pools, but some nice fish are moving up towards shallower water on sunny days and in the evening. Ice fishing is still going strong with good catches of crappies, bluegills and perch...

    Finally some relief from the cold! By weeks end, we saw temps soaring from morning lows of 10 below early in the week to highs of mid 50's by Sunday. Unfortunately the warm temps did make things very messy by Sunday. The amount of snow still on the ice turned very slushy, limiting most traffic to foot or snowmobile. As the snow/slush continues to c...

    This is one winter that is ready for the books, with the heavy snow and slush conditions on the lakes combined with the severe cold weather ice fishing and many other outdoor activities were put on hold for the last 3 months. But now it's time to enjoy the next couple of weeks of late ice fishing. As the weather warms and snow me...

    Open water has arrived and anglers are doing well on walleyes below area dams. Jig and minnow combinations are working in deeper water, and crankbaits are working in the shallower areas early and late in the day. Ice fishing continues to be good with outstanding catches of panfish.   All species are going strong with the best act...

    By John Luthens It was somewhere around midnight when I decided to go trout fishing.  It was either the first or second day of spring.  When I ripped my eyes from the television screen, it depended on which way I tilted my head to look at the clock.  It was also either the first or second day of the March college basketball ...

    With dawn temps running 6 to 10 degrees below 0 and nothing above freezing for a few days here in late March, doesn't look good for ice out by the may opener at this rate. Ice thickness averages 32 to 36"+ that's a lot of ice to lose in 30 some days. We should have a nice long, late ice panfish season though! Yellow Perch: Good- The most action be...

    Anglers are starting to hit open water below area dams in search of walleyes. The guys that are out are doing ok on fish from 14 to 24 inches by using jig and minnow combinations.

    It doesn't seem as though mother nature will let off her cold grip any time soon; we just can't get a break. Even though its mid-March, with plenty of hard snow cover and slush underneath, panfish are still relating to deeper water. However, catches have been good. Crappie: Good- Very Good. Anglers have reported good success over the weekend over ...

    I’m sure you have all heard about the historical events this last winter of the ice coverage on the Great Lakes.  For the first time since 1979 more than 90% of all of the Great Lakes are covered in ice. The satellite pictures are startling.  Small islands of open water appear in a moonscape of ice and snow, bereft of any lights, i...

There are a few dedicated fisherman that enjoy a completely different type of fishing.  They disdain the u...
