    The action for all species has been very good this past week.  With the cooler temperatures that we have been receiving the water temperatures have gone down about 10 degrees and the fish have been very active. We have had great catches of panfish from crappies and bluegills by working deeper structure in both the river sections and the main ...

    Day 5 Results — Wednesday, July 24, 2013 A day after strong winds limited participation, anglers were back out in force and quickly made up for lost time with the most big fish in any single day yet this tournament — 63 20-pound and larger chinooks. Baileys Harbor led the way with an incredible 25 fish between 20 and 25.78 pounds. St...

    Day 4 Results — Tuesday, July 23, 2013 Strong winds roughed up Lake Michigan and limited action at most ports. Washington Island took the hardest hit; only one fish was weighed, and it was caught the night before. There was only one top 20 change in the leader board Tuesday, a 26-pounder at Sturgeon Bay moving into the 14th spot. The whoppe...

    By Steve Suman The forecast for this week indicates a dandy week ahead, with warm (not HOT) highs, mild nights excellent for sleeping, a few rain showers, and a warming trend for the weekend. We are good to go! “Fishing is generally good in recent days,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “though anglers are limiting their time on the wa...

    The walleye action is still fairly good with a peak bite in the morning and at dark. Leeches and Crawlers are still leading the pack in bait choices for local fishermen. Trolling or casting Flicker Shads have been getting some better sized fish. Bluegill action is still good on the deeper drops near wood. Small jigs,  slip bobbers, or just a ...

    Even with the oppressive heat and humidity, fishing remains very good.  The best bite on the lake is deep water smallmouth or walleye bite at night. Largemouth Bass are on the deep weedline.  The best weedlines are the ones with hard rock or hard sand scattered with the weeds.  The best location is by Trinkes or in Williams Bay.&nbs...

    Fishing was excellent during our hot and humid week, by Sunday the temperatures cooled a bit but the fishing didn’t cool at all.  Both the bluegills and largemouth bass remain in their mid summer patterns. Bluegill fishing has been some of the finest in recent memory.  The best depth is 12-15 ft of water.  The fish can be easi...

    Day One Results — Saturday, July 20, 2013 What Kewaunee and Door County anglers are lacking in numbers of salmon reeled in this year, they’re making up for in size. Just a year after only one 20-pound-plus chinook was put to scale opening day — and 14 in the entire nine-day tournament — 33 20-pound-plus “kings” ...

    Summer Fishing Has Arrived Hi Folks – Well, we are most definitely in summer now.  Hot, humid temps the past couple of weeks have skyrocketed water temps into the 80 degree mark.  These temps have put fishing into full summer patterns.  MUSKY fishing has been pretty good as of late with a good early morning bite window.  ...

    My far-going fishing buddies laugh every time I tell them I am going to fish the Milwaukee River. They assume the worst- “Fishing for carp or floating garbage?” they ask. They chase the fish of summer in tranquil and spring-fed northern waters. I believe they picture a weed-choked and polluted piece of stagnant water when I tell of the...

    Written by Len Harris Article posted in the Richland Observer, Thursday, July 11, 2013 I was driving home and I saw a guy fishing in a trout FREE zone. It was nothing more than a ditch with some water in it. I saw he had Illinois plates and I decided he needed a little help. I stopped and talked to him. He was a beginner trout angler and this was...

    By, Dave Hraychuck Summer is in full swing. The panfish bite has been really hot.  Small jigs such as Shrimpos, Flu Flus, and Cubby Jigs have been producing lots of nice bluegills and crappies in 8 to 12 feet of water.  In deeper water lakes, the graphs have been lighting up in 20 to 30’ of water.  Bottom bouncers with small f...

    We are still doing very well on Panfish and Walleye in the Phillips Area. July is usually a time of year when the warm temps seem to slow the fishing down but this year things are really starting to heat up. Gills, Crappie, Perch, Walleye and Smallies are all being taken in the same areas. The magic water depth seems to be anywhere from 8 to 15 ...
