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 ...

    As of Saturday 6/29,  Delavan Lake remains under a slow/no wake order  in effect due to the excessive rain.  Walworth county received about 11 inches of rain in 2 days.  I was able to fish a bit this week dodging the rain drops.  The success was limited.  The water clarity is poor and there is a lot of floating debris ...

    This past week we had an exceptional amount of rainfall.  It didn’t bother the fish too much as the fishing continues to be very good.  With all the rain, the fish moved slightly shallower.   With the warm weather, the surface temperature of the lake is about 75 degrees. Largemouth bass are now post spawn the best depth i...

    By John Luthens The foundations of Wisconsin’s natural resources spiral deep back into the past like the cross section of an ancient tree. Rolling miles of rebuilt forest, grasses and streamside cover now stretch across the state, replenishing a nation built from northern lumber and the pocketbooks of the lumber barons who clear-cut endless...

    Good morning, here is the local fishing report from Kurt’s Island Sports.We knew it was coming! Wish it wasn’t! The big (hexagenia ) mayflies are hatching! This major hatch-coming to a Northwoods Lake near you- is a killer for the walleye bite on your favorite lake for 3-4 days after it happens. Usually finished by the 2nd-3rd week of J...

    No Bug Hatches Yet – Getting Close By Jeff Winters Hi Folks – I have not seen any big mayfly hatches yet, but they are very close now. I have noticed a few on the surface of some lakes and I can see them coming up on the graph. We are at a day-by-day scenario when it comes to fishing WALLEYES. We are finding most of our wal...

    There has been a long drawn out mayfly hatch but that doesn't seem to be hurting the Panfish or Walleye bite at all. Bluegills are still tight to shore, we are getting them on just about anything that we throw at them. They are pretty spooky and you almost have to hit the wood to get them. Walleye action it still going strong, size is a little on t...

    Heavy rains have many rivers at or near flood stage Heavy rains across much of the state in the last week have almost all major river systems and some lakes at very high levels. The southwestern portion of the state received the heaviest rain, with areas of Grant County reporting up to 15 inches of rain in the last week. The Mississippi, Lower Wis...

    By Steve Suman Warm temperatures continue, with highs in the 80s until a slight cooling occurs late in the week, and the forecast again includes too many ‘good’ chances for showers. “As we move more into summer, fishing patterns are beginning to change,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “With most species having completed ...

    By John Luthens Somewhere due north of Rhinelander, Wisconsin in Oneida County, we hiked up Tower Ridge, swatting mosquitoes and kicking our way though green summer ferns and beneath the swaying canopy of endless trees. We scrambled to the top, pitching tents before the darkest clouds dropped through the pines. Thunder shook the ridge top and lig...

    It's the end of June and the Mayflies are hatching, This hasn't shut down fishing but it does make it a harder bite because the Panfish, Walleye and Bass are gorging themselves on the easy meal. We have been finding Walleye in 8 to 12 feet of water, A piece of Night Crawler on a floating lindy rig has been a good bet, Walleye are also being taken o...

    Overall fishing remains very good.  With the warmer weather the water temperature has been getting warmer as well.  The largemouth bass are becoming very active with the Jumbo bluegills. Largemouth bass have been actively feeding.  They can be caught in Williams Bay or in Trinkes.  They are biting on wacky rigged green pumpkin ...

    The boat traffic has been extreme the past week.  The word is out that the fish are biting.  You need to go early to get a good spot.  The fishing has been very good.  The best success has been bluegills and crappies. Crappie fishing has been very good for the suspended fish in 12 ft of water about 8 ft down.  The best loc...

    Summer finally arrives on the calendar and in the woods and waters of Wisconsin It finally looks summer has arrived and not just on the calendar, but in the woods and on the waters of Wisconsin. For the most part, the state has enjoyed sunnier, warmer days in the past week and more of the same is in the forecast. Events are really picking up at s...

    June 18 started with 38 degrees, so what’s new? Guess we shouldn’t be surprised, but a cold front with high pressure in the middle of June has backed water temperatures down into the low 60’s again.  Temps yo-yo up with the sun in the afternoon, but overall are down for this time of year. Smallmouth Bass:  Excellent &nd...

    By Steve Suman Constantly changing weather patterns make it difficult to know what to expect, but the ‘current’ forecast predicts a warm week with (too many) chances for rain. June is peak nesting time for turtles and they are on the move near rivers and wetlands. Watch for them crossing roads, and if safe to do so, move them to the s...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The backwaters of the Wisconsin River near Gotham are producing good crappie action. They have been biting on pink and white jigs fished during early morning or evening hours. Cloudy days with a little wind are the best. The trout streams are producing nice fish. The smaller streams are clear now and the trout are surfacing t...

    By, Dave Hraychuck Summer is finally here for more than 24 hours...the fish and fishermen are really happy about it! The crappies and bluegills are biting on all area lakes. Small jigs, ice spoons, and small beetle spins tipped with waxies, Gulp Bait, or minnows are producing great catches all over the area. Fishing with Guide Dave Hraychuck, M...
