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 ...

    The walleyes are biting. Plain and simple! Catching 35-45 walleyes is not out of the question. They are very grouped up right now so when you find a group of them, stay on them because you will catch several of them. I have been targeting deeper water in 25-30 feet. As the fall progresses the thermocline will drop, with that the fish can move ...

    Last week’s cold, clear, calm nights followed by sunny warm days cancelled each other out keeping surface temps on average around 61-65 degrees.  High winds over the weekend kept anglers off the water.  Chance of rain this Thursday and Friday may do the same, but this is the week to be out there. Pike:  Very good.  Filing...

    The trees are starting to turn colors around the area, the water temperatures are dropping, and the fish are really starting to put on the feed bags for the fall.  The walleyes are really going strong right now. The fish have shifted from all being on soft bottom chasing perch, to sitting right on the hard to soft bottom transition, or just...

    Terry Welch sends us a photo of another memory on the Wisconsin River this week. “My friends and I started canoe camping on the Wisconsin when we were in High School,” Terry writes.  “We’re 60 now, our kids have grown up and once or twice a year we grab our rods and tents and hit the sandbars. I was having coffee last ...

    By Dave Hraychuck It’s mid-September, leaves are starting to turn, traps are dyed, lure and bait is made or bought, and Wisconsin trappers eagerly wait for the opener! While coming back from a day of sturgeon fishing on Yellow Lake, I stopped and met with Greg Wade, owner of the Log Cabin Store, Eatery and Fur Shed, in Danbury, Wisconsin. G...

    As we enter the last days of September and move into October the water temperatures in our area have dropped to the low 60's and in some areas the upper 50's.  The bite for walleyes has been very good and a lot of nice fish are being taken.  Most of the action is coming by guys working the deeper areas of the river with jig and mi...

    Crappie action is still good, they are scattered over the deeper areas of the lakes, We have been drifting plastics or small jigs and minnows. Bluegill action has been good as well, we are finding the gills in 10 to 20 feet of water using small jigs and chunks of crawler or gulp. Walleye have been pretty tight lipped with the yo-yo like water temps...

    This past week we had some up and down weather, from hot and humid to unseasonably cold by the weekend.  Fishing was also like a roller coaster, some days they bit well in every location and other days it was tough to get a bite anywhere.  Overall fishing is still transitioning from a summer bite to a fall pattern.  Some days, fat he...

    After a late week hiccup, water temps are finally being forced down just a bit.  Water temps were dropping, but, Thursday’s high of 80 degrees rose surface temps back above the mid 60’s.  Sunday morning had low temps of 28 degrees.  Flowages and shallow lakes saw surface temps dip to 61-62 degrees, while larger lakes hove...

    Because Delavan Lake is a substantially shallower body of water than Lake Geneva, frontal patterns effect Delavan quite a bit more and cold fronts really make the fishing tough.  This past weeks 30 degree cold front shut the fish off and made the bite very tough.  With stable weather forecasted, we should see improvement throughout the ne...

    The big fall musky bite has begun and some real trophy class fish have already been taken.  Jerkbaits and double bladed bucktails, along with large rubber baits are going to be the main pattern from now-on until freeze up. Look for muskies to be suspending near deeper water along drop-offs and roaming deep weed edges in search of prey....

    Fencerows By John Luthens Come harvest time, I cruise the neighborhood with the abandon of a squirrel waiting for the first acorns to fall, waiting for the fruits of the tree and vine to give up their dividends.  An endless summer spent toiling under the hot summer sky (not me, I’m talking about the trees and vines and farmers) is laid...

    Friday I had the opportunity to take 12 year old Spencer out to try and catch him his first musky. The day started out cold and foggy, I gave Spencer a rod with a small surface bait on it, Spencer started casting it like a pro, as he was casting I set out a couple of suckers on quick strikes to give Spencer a better chance at landing...

    With the cooler weather, the fall fishing patterns are starting to take shape.  For live bait fishermen, it’s time to look to fat head minnows as the bait of choice over nightcrawlers.  Last week, I caught all species in the lake on fat head minnows from crappies to northern pike.  The fish have scattered from their tight summe...

    The week started with unseasonably warm temperatures and by the end of the week we had a massive cold front.  You would think that this would slow fishing down, but since the fish are still so deep it didn’t affect it at all.  The boat traffic has been very light though which makes fishing much more pleasurable. Smallmouth bass are...
