Kevin Wallenfang and his tournament winning, 46-inch musky just prior to release Fishing has been as hot as the weather for our circle of family and friends, and anglers participating in the 16th Annual Bob Ellis Row Trolling Classic. The Classic was started in 2003 by fishing guide Patricia Strutz to memorialize Bob Ellis, a legendary northern Wisconsin row troller inducted into the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame in 2008 for his im...

    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...

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...

    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...
