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...

    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...

    Steve Suman On the heels of a cool, somewhat wet weekend, this week’s forecast indicates a weather roller coaster ride, with warm to cold, wet to dry, and all stops in between. “The transition from summer highs to fall temperatures is always an interesting period,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “Water levels remain good and w...

    Finally some good early fall weather.  Night time temps dipped to the low 30’s ((high 20’s in some low areas) and water temps are starting to drop along with air temp.  Thursday’s forecast is for a high of 80 degrees, but after that we are back to the highs of 60’s. Crappies:  Very good.  Depending on ba...

    September 17, 2013 Hi Folks Well, here we are in mid-September and have finally arrived in our early fall fishing patterns. Water temps are falling and seem to be hovering in the 64 to 67 degree mark. Things have also finally changed to a minnow bite when it comes to walleye. Fish have been holding in deep timber and rocks as primary spots, altho...

    MADISON – A draft proposal for a new, simplified strategy for how Wisconsin allocates stocked chinook salmon among its Lake Michigan counties would factor in charter boat trips and would provide counties a baseline level of stocking to support fall fishing runs, state fisheries officials say. The proposed draft stocking strategy, developed b...

    The North Woods was blessed with another week of summer like weather, the sunny warm conditions have held water temps in the low 70's and the fish are still in a summer pattern. Ross's Sport Shop Guides targeted a number of species of fish this week and did well on most of them. A lot of good reports of panfish are coming into the store right now a...

    By Steve Suman The weather forecast indicates an interesting week ahead, with more seasonal, cooler temperatures – including a few very cool nights – and some still much-needed rain showers. A warming (but mild) trend returns toward the end of the week. There is so much to do this time of year, from recreation to pre-winter projects, s...

    Warm weather has persisted for the second week of September. Surface temps ranging from 72-78 degrees. In some instances it has put the bite off. For some species things have picked up.
