With Spring Turkey season just around the corner, Henry USA sent us a video now posted on our homepage that I know you’ll get a kick out of. The point is though, young hunters and smaller hunters won’t get a kick out of it at all. The wait for a gobbler can be too long to question whether or not you’re packing the right turkey load when he does show up (Dick Ellis Photo) Henry wanted to test the viability of their beautiful ...

    Wisconsin's record fish program will receive some changes in 2014 with the addition of two new categories: 1) Modern Day/Legacy records and 2) Live Release records. The addition of these two new categories should bring some excitement into Wisconsin fishing and provide more anglers with an opportunity to catch a verified record fish. Modern day/...

    Overall fishing remains above average, even considering the incredible fall weather we had this past weekend in July!  The only fish not biting well, is the northern pike, everything else is quite active. Northern pike has been spotty.  There are a few fish being caught in the shallower water, 22-23 ft.  Most of the success is comin...

    Fishing remains excellent on Delavan Lake.  The day after the initial cold front, the fish were inactive for only one day, but the numbers are increasing again.  The one good thing about the cooler weather is that the suckers live longer! Northern Pike fishing has been a bit slow.  The fish seem to be very particular about the size ...

    It’s not over until it’s over, and it’s over — almost. All that separates the more than 150 prizewinners from cashing in on the 31st annual Kewaunee/Door County Salmon Tournament is Monday’s wrap-up meeting. On the final day, Baileys Harbor weighed a dozen fish larger than 20 pounds, Sturgeon Bay 11, Kewaunee 10, Algo...

    We were lost within minutes of gearing up canoes and launching the fleet from a remote gravel landing.  Shortly we were plowing through marsh grass, high reeds and swarms of mating dragonflies. A heavy bass splashed from under a lily pad and swiped at a pair of the winged lovers. It took an hour of looking at the map, gauging the angle of the...

    Even with the major cold front moving thru early over the weekend fishing continued to be good for Walleye, Crappie and Panfish. They didn't bite as hard but they could be caught. Friday I had a cancelation because of the weather forecast so I woke my 6 year old up at 5 am and we hit the water. I gave him a limit of 12 fish witch he filled easily b...

    Day 8 Results — Saturday, July 27, 2013 A strong cold front didn’t hurt the fishing Saturday, Day 8 of the 31st annual Kewaunee/Door County Salmon Tournament. In fact, 59 20-pound-plus chinooks were weighed, eight of them big enough to move into the top 30. Baileys Harbor stayed hot, with sixteen 20-pound-plus fish, including a pair o...

    Day 7 Results — Friday, July 26, 2013 Bouncy seas, heavy downpours and threatening skies reduced fishing pressure Friday, but that didn’t stop K/D contestants from adding another 26 20-pound-plus fish the tournament scales. With the final weekend still to play out, 303 chinooks 20 pounds and larger had already been weighed. The heavie...

    Day 6 Results — Thursday, July 25, 2013 Despite some very rough water, 45 more 20-pound-plus chinooks were brought to the scale Thursday. The running total of “20s” now stands at 277 with three days to go. The largest fish of the day moved into third place, a 29.17-pounder caught by Troy VanderHeiden of Little Chute late Wednesd...

    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...
