    Steve Suman The North Wood’s weekend was a wet and windy one, and the forecast for this week predicts rain and/or snow nearly every day (with way too many mentions of snow for early November!) “Most area lakes have turned over or are in process of turning,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “and water temperatures a...

    Water temps have dropped since last report, now ranging from 36-42 degrees.  The musky action has picked up from slow start.   Many muskies caught in the last few days and while artificial lures may be bringing them in, most of the catches have been on suckers.  .  Musky Suckers have not been an issue to get in our area as ...

    The fall musky bite is right now and big fish are being caught by anglers running large suckers run under bobbers and by guys throwing large jerkbaits like Suicks and Mantas.  Most of the action is in 8 to 14 feet of water but a few fish have been caught suspended over very deep water up to 30 feet deep. Walleyes have been very active...

    Fishing conditions were about as brutal as they get in Wisconsin last week with the combination of high winds, cold temps and rain/snow mix but the fish did bite. The water temps are ranging from 38 to 44 degrees in area lakes and the fish are moving into their traditional fall patterns. Walleye started to show themselves again, angle...

    SPOONER – Walleye stocking is still underway from the state hatchery producing the most of anglers’ favorite fish, with state crews trading the longtime bucket brigade for a mechanical method of moving fish from the ponds into stocking trucks. A new video shows staff at the Gov. Tommy G. Thompson State Fish Hatchery using a fis...

    By Terrell Boettcher News Editor Approximately 50 people attended and offered input at an Oct. 15 public forum in Hayward on the “Walleye Initiative” proposed by Governor Walker and put into effect this year. The initiative is providing funding to greatly expand the hatchery production of large walleye fingerlings to stock in ...

    Another weekend of wind, cold, rain, sleet and snow.  Big fall bites have just not developed well.  Blame could be on conditions being rough for boat control, but, even then fish should be being caught.  Musky:  Fair.  Not much for reports over the weekend.  Pressure put on smaller lakes as large lakes extremely tough...

    Steve Suman  The North Woods has an interesting week ahead, according to present prognostications, with milder temperatures and more chances for rain than snow.  Good news – you recoup an hour of sleep November 3 when (if!) you turn back your clocks at 2 a.m. for the end of Daylight Saving Time.  “Very cold conditions ...

    By Mike Yurk Snow driven, slanting down the river as twenty mile per hour winds lashed us. We huddled in jackets, hoods pulled up, snow pelting us. In so many ways it was a typical day of fall fishing on the Mississippi River. Tom yelled he had a fish. I looked out from under the hood of my jacket and saw his spinning rod, bent in half, t...

    Wind, rain, cold and snow.  Water temps in the Lakeland area continue to fall.  Fast dropping temps have put turn-over behind us, concentration will be deeper now. Musky:  Fair-Good.  Varying reports.  Some areas slow, probably due to turn-over, others that had been off saw a spike in activity.  Suckers have been king...

    Spending time with family North Dakota has a generous number of potholes within the confines of its boundaries - little pockets of water that offer the migrating waterfowl population opportunities to rest, relax and rejuvenate. By generous I mean that there’s a gazillion spits of water everywhere, give or take a few. Ponds range in size fro...

    By John Luthens “Off the Grid” The birch leaves were flaming gold.  They sifted through the high pine ridge from the hardwood acres beyond and fell noiselessly in the pooled water, curling around the bend and clinging wet to my waders.  Late October on the Brule River is like standing in a solemn outdoor cathedral. ...

    Musky and Crappie are talk of the store right now and both bites are heating up with the falling water temps! Water temps are between 42 and 49 degrees on most area lakes and water levels are good in the rivers. There is a drawdown on Musser Flowage of 6' that makes fishing the lake nearly impossible. There is also an emergency drawdown on ...

    Every September for about 30 days, the hook and llne season for sturgeon opens on numerous lakes here in Wisconsin. When that happens, the hardcore fisherman attempt “CPR” on these prehistoric fish. By the way, in this instance, “CPR” stands for Catch, Photorgraph, and Release!  One of the hardcore fishermen is...

    Today, Wisconsin DNR Wild Rose Fish Hatchery finished stocking large fingerling Northern Pike for 2013. A total of 55 lakes across the state received a total of  48,916  Pike fingerlings from Wild Rose in the last 9 weeks. That is on top of the 110,000 small fingerlings stocked from Wild Rose in June. Stocking this fall took longer than i...

    Steve Suman We had a good run while it lasted, but nearly every day in this week’s forecast shows chances for rain and temperatures sliding down the scale.

    With an extremely warm fall so far, Lake Geneva is far from turning over.  The coldest I’ve seen the water this year is 66 degrees.              Smallmouth bass fishing has been good.  The fish remain on deep main lake points in 22-28 ft of water.  The best approach i...

    Fall Musky fishing is in full swing and the bigger fish are starting to move. Suckers, Plastics, Suick's and slow rolling big bucktails are all working well right now. Slow your retrieve down and match the natural forage in the lakes with your color selections. For most Price County area lakes Sucker patterns with brown and white, Perch pat...

    Reading the internet, I saw quite a few complaints about the weed killing on Delavan Lake.  The harbor master at Delavan Lake said that there was no such project undertaken in recent weeks on the lake.  I believe that it’s just the time of year causing the fishing to be slow.  For the last 10 days, there has been a heavy algae ...

      Local anglers are having good luck on walleyes and muskies with consistent action from crappies and white bass. A lot of the action is taking place on the main lake along sharp breaking channel edges and in submerged structure.  The muskies have been taking large baits like Reef Hawgs, Suicks and Manta's along with rubber style...

    Cooler water temps now in the mid 50 degree range have all species bulking up for the ensuing winter months.  The musky bite has really turned up a notch with multiple fish days being the norm. A lot of activity on jerkbaits and rubber along with action from deep diving crankbaits.  The walleye bite is outstanding and it is only g...
