Hunting the Rut     Oh the things we see during the rut. After watching these bucks clash during a North Dakota bird hunt in late October, Ellis snapped this shot of the victor looking for more as the half-rack headed for the hills. We believe the antler was lost in the fight. If you’re a bow hunter, you look forward to these precious but fleeting days of November, and late October, like no other. As a writer, I’ve alw...

    Well it looks like we are off to an early start on winter. What a crazy year. We went from winter to summer, then right back to winter. We had a very short fall if any really, and basically no spring this year whatsoever.  But now with the 2018 gun deer season only about a week away I know many hunters like myself are happy to see the snow on ...

    This week’s report is going to be short but sweet. The Big Musky bite has really heated up with several giants caught this past week. I had Jeff Widman and Steve Genson out, along with Andy Veitch for a couple of days of filming for Team Rhino Outdoors and we landed some giants. Steve had the largest one which was easily pushing the 40 pound...

    Fishing: 10/29/18 - The musky fishing is on fire with the larger fish eating, water temps range from 38 to 44 in much of the area. Swimbaits, big cranks and suckers have been on the menu this week. Pictured are just some of the fish that visited my boat this week. John Carlson Ross's Sport Shop & Guide Service  10/30/18 - ...

    I’d like to start this week’s report with a big thank you to Jason down at Amherst Marine.  I had a few issues going on with my boat and some desperately required maintenance that needed attending to and Jason dropped everything and got me taken care of in less than one day.  Now that’s great service!  If you are lo...

    With cooler water temps and this weekends Full Moon fast approaching look for the fish activity to be better then it has been the last few weeks. Cool nights and some rain have dropped water temps from the low to mid 80's to the mid 70's. Reports of Anglers catching Crappie and Panfish are coming in to Ross's Sport Shop and Guide Service, Crappie...

    High skies, hot weather and boat traffic was the talk last week.  Throw in some late Mayfly hatches on our favorite Walleye waters and for some anglers, it was a tough week of fishing.   Largemouth Bass:  Very Good – One of the few bright spots.  Largemouth fishing has been very good towards dusk on top-water lures such ...
  • 7/9/2018 9:40:00 PM
    The walleye bite continues to be very good in central Wisconsin along with a pretty good crappie bite as well.  We have also been picking up a few nice pike and bass.  Water temperatures continue to hover around that 80 degree mark making it tough for musky fishing but a few guys are targeting them early and late in the day and they are p...

    As I sit here writing this we just received about 3 inches of rain in central Wisconsin.  I can’t wait to see what it does to the conditions on the area lakes and rivers but it sure can’t hurt. We have been dry for quite a while and some much needed rain is a blessing.  Water temperatures as of this morning were right around 7...

    Here we go again with the up and down weather patterns that are disrupting the water temperatures and the fishing patterns. The water temperatures dropped 10 to 15 degrees in a period of two days this past weekend and it has created some very interesting fishing conditions. Most of the fish have shifted to deeper water as well as becoming quite a b...

    Anglers across our area are experiencing some good fishing for a variety of species. Walleye action has been steady at dusk. Jig and minnow combinations are working but leeches are also making up some nice catches. We are seeing mayflies on the water so the walleye bite might slow a bit but fish will still be catchable. Walleyes are found on weed e...

    Quite a few walleyes and bass have come across the bow of my boat this past week with several of them real dandies.  We have also seen some very good crappie and pike fishing this past week as well.  Water temperatures spiked last weekend and some areas were pushing the 80 degree mark, but it has toned down a bit and we are holding steady...

    Northern Wisconsin Musky Opener is this weekend!!!! With near perfect conditions musky anglers heading out for this weekend opener should see pretty good action. The area lakes and rivers are in the upper 60 to low 70 degree range and a variety of tactics should be working.  I would start out running a variety of smaller to medium bucktails a...

    Nearly limitless custom options and floor plans   While Angler Qwest pontoons are great for taking out friends and family all at once, for a sunset cruise, don’t let the pontoons fool you- these rigs fish!  The boats are available to target several species, including the Troll series, that comes in six models from the 820 ser...

    Carolyn from Anglers all reports: Everything is happening right now and fishing has been turned on in the Bay. Small Mouth are in pre-spawn primarily in the Sand Cut, Brush Point, Oak Point Area. Along with the Small Mouth you will find Walleyes, Northerns, and Perch. People are fishing for Northerns on the Ashland shoreline. Trout and Salmon troll...

    The past few weeks have been crazy with unstable weather patterns and temperature swings. These conditions have in turn made for very interesting hunting and fishing conditions. The turkey hunters are the positive part of this scenario, they have been having a banner year with a lot of hunters getting their birds. The numbers of mature birds tha...

    Not much to report!  Unusual amounts of mid-April snow and high winds have kept anglers off the lakes.  Access is tough right now as the snow depth makes getting around very difficult.   Crappie:  Bad-Poor! – No recent reports over the last five days, though a few anglers heading out as of this writing. Concentrate on ba...

    Great weather and improving conditions on the ice led to lots of angler participation over the weekend.   Crappie:  Very Good – The warm weather helped with the functioning tip-down bite.  Oddly, some reports on Crappies in 22-25’, some in 13-18’ and others up as shallow as 7-10’.  Rosies and small minn...

    Now’s the Time for Panfish        Soon is the inland lake season opens for fishing. Though the panfish season is open year-round, now is the time to target shallow water crappies and bluegills as soon as the ice is gone in shallow water. The water temperature in most area lakes is approaching 50 degrees which is...

    2/27/18- Reported by  Jim Stroede Guide Service Washburn County recently received a foot of new snow, this has been great for skiing and snowmobilers but has made getting out on the ice a little bit of a struggle for atv and truck traffic. Walking out to good crappie and bluegill fishing is still very good and easy on Long Lake. Multiple...
