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 ...

    By Steve Suman Forecasters say the Hayward area is in for another warm week, and while hot and sunny is not the best for mid-day fishing, the weather is certainly inviting for various water sports! “The days of heat and humidity are now with us,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “Daytime temperatures can reach more than 80 degrees with...

    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 ...

    For this time of year, the fishing remains very consistent.  There are large numbers of fish to be caught.  The bass have not moved deep yet so they are still accessible on the mid range weedlines. Northern Pike have moved out of the shallows and are now on the thermocline in 30-32 ft of water.  They can be readily caught on lindy r...

    The fish are in their mid summer patterns.  The water temperatures have increased so most of the fish are in the deeper water and aggressively hitting.  With the excessive rains we had a couple of weeks ago, there is a severe algae bloom on the lake. Walleye fishing can be good given enough time.  The fish can be caught on leeches f...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The streams and lakes are back to normal levels.  I was out trout fishing and tried using night crawlers on the streams where you can keep trout.  I didn’t catch any trout but some nice white suckers.  I changed over to Panther Martin spinners and the action was excellent.  Right now it is good to fl...

    Don't Miss The Boat..... Shore Fishing Not every quality fishing opportunity needs to be from a boat. Factors like weather and amount of time can make all the trouble of loading and unloading a boat just not worth it. At these times I take my kids and friends shore fishing. There are many small pot hole lakes that dot Wisconsin, add in the rivers...

    By Steve Suman The warm and humid weekend led into what is forecast to be a somewhat warm and humid week, with high temperatures in the 80s, lows in the 50s and 60s, and with the perspiration, a few ‘opportunities’ for precipitation. Turtles are still moving to and from their egg-laying sites so be on the lookout when driving through ...

    Great bite from walleyes this past week by anglers long-lining crankbaits in 6 to 10 feet of water.  The action for crappies has been reliable and very consistent.  We have found most of the crappies suspended about 5 feet down over 10 to 16 feet of water. The bluegill bite has picked up the past few weeks and a lot of that is associate...

    Summer patterns, while still behind due to late ice, clouds, cool weather and rain are starting to set up.  With most signs of bug hatches over, that missing food source should help to concentrate the bites to the food sources remaining.  That doesn’t mean angling gets easier, there is still a lot of food out there, just fewer choic...

    The slow no-wake order has expired and the water clarity has been improving and the weedlines are starting to form nicely with the warmer weather and water. Northern Pike fishing has been improving.  Lindy rigging the weedlines in 17-18 ft of water has been the best method.  Most of the fish are being caught on large suckers.  The s...

    I hope everyone had a great 4th of July.  We finally saw the rain move out and had some great weather.  The warm weather is increasing the water temperatures and they are hovering around 75 degrees.  The boat traffic was intense over the holiday weekend but with the holiday in the past, it should decrease making fishing more enjoyabl...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The streams and lakes are back to normal levels.  Fishing is average now but the mosquito population is above average.  I would strongly advise wearing netting if fishing for trout at this time.  The backwaters along Lone Rock are above level with a strong growth of a variety of weeds.  You need to look fo...

    Fishing continues to be good in the Phillips Area even through the 4th's heavy holiday boat traffic. The lakes were really rocking and rolling and so were the fish, at times it was hard to hold on your fishing spot but all the trouble is worth it. We were getting a nice "Mixed Bag" of fish including Perch, Crappie, Bluegills, Smallmouth Bass, and W...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler We have had very heavy rains in the past couple of weeks.  The high water flooded the backwaters.  Right now it is easy to kayak or canoe.  You can travel a long way before you are stopped by a beaver dam.  The fishing is very slow and the weeds cover most of the open water.  The streams were over the...
  • 7/9/2013 4:50:00 PM
    The fishing around the area is excellent right now. Pick a species that you want to catch and they are biting. Lots of traffic over the water for the rest of the week might slow that down a little bit as pressure on the fish will increase, both from fisherman, boats and watercraft enjoying the lakes. The Walleyes are still very concentrated in shal...
