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 ...

    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...

    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. Be prepared to take advantage of warm, sunny days sure(?) to follow! “Water temperatures are dropping,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “and fishing continues to be fairly go...

    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...

    Dave Bohn 9-12-2013 A year ago I booked a fishing and bear hunting trip with Richard and Michelle Carpenter at Ten Mile Lake Camp. They run a drive-to     camp, one hour north of Ignace Ontario, Canada. They also have fly-in cabins available. I received a list from the Carpenters of items we should bring. I had most of...

I took the old South Bend bamboo with the Medalist reel.  Hooked a fresh king and handed the rod to her.  She l...

    Despite the warm water temps fall fishing continues to get better and better, The water temps are hanging around the 60 degree mark and that's not going to change as we roll into the middle of October with mid 70's forecasted for weeks end. Look for most species of fish to move a little shallower, We have been pulling panfish out ...

    Surface temps have yet to drop to levels usually seen at this time of year. Most lakes are seeing temps averaging 60-62 degrees- last year at this time the average was 49-50 degrees. This week’s air temp lows of the 40s will be working against highs in the low 70s. Pike:  Good.  Spinnerbaits over cabbage beds of 4-8’ producin...

    Steve Suman As happens nearly every year, as if on schedule, ‘inclement’ weather arrives during the first full weekend of October to coincide with the Stone Lake Cranberry Festival, Muskies, Inc. fall tournament, and Bayfield Apple Festival – and as happens every year, people shrug off the weather and have a good time! “Mu...

    As we move into October the Fall hunting season is well under way. Most archery hunters are getting ready for the rut which will begin in a few weeks as well as gun hunters sighting in their rifles and getting their stands situated well before season starts.  Duck and goose hunters are having a very good season with numbers of geese,...

    The Musky Sucker bite is on!!! Ross's Sport Shop guides and customers have been reporting a great sucker bite for Musky that should just get better as the water temps drop. We have been using suckers from 11 to 14 inches right now. My rig of choice is the Fuzzy Clip and Go witch quickly attaches to the sucker but breaks away from it easily upo...

    Overall the fishing on Delavan has been very slow.  The best bite has been bluegills and crappies in the deep water.  I think the fish are in their fall transition period and have become harder to catch.  After the lake turns over, fishing will improve.  Turnover should happen within the next two to three weeks, depending on the...
  • 10/3/2013 7:55:00 AM
    With the unseasonable warm weather fishing remains steady overall.  Most of the fish are still in deeper water, over 20 ft.  The best bite remains bluegills and smallmouth bass. Smallmouth bass fishing has been great.  They can be caught on anything from medium suckers, fat head minnows and nightcrawlers.  The best approach is ...

    Steve Suman The forecast looks good for the first part of this week, though cooler weather and rain chances keep increasing toward the weekend ... and the annual Muskies, Inc. fall tournament. Of course. At least for now, the only moisture mention is ‘rain’.  “As we slip into fall, water temperatures are in the low to mid 6...
