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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...
