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 ...

    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...

    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...
