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...

    Fishing Report June 11, 2019 Anglers All reports: The water is starting to clear up but we are still a couple of weeks behind in water temps warming up but as soon as the temps warm up, the action will be picking up on the Bay and on the Inlands. Trollers continue flat lining stickbaits from Houghton Point to Long Island and out to the A...

    Delavan Lake fishing is very good right now.  The lake is productive on multiple species.  As summer starts to heat up, the lake is getting very busy.  Prepare to get to the lake early if you want to get a parking spot as well as a vacant fishing spot.  Even though the fishing pressure is high, there are still plenty of good b...

                Fishing remains fantastic on Lake Geneva.  Most of the fish are located between 10 and 15 ft of water.  With the warming water temperature the bait of choice has switched from fat head minnows to nightcrawlers.           ...

    What was building into a great week of fishing slowed by Sun/Mon as the area got hit with a couple cooler fronts.  Overall though, fishing was very good, and should return again by week’s end.   Smallmouth Bass:  Very Good-Excellent – Season is ALL catch and release, but lots of great reports as Smallies are b...

    This is going to be a short weekly report his week as I just blew a blood vessel in my right arm a couple of days ago and found out that I hand have bad tendinitis according to the doctor. I am supposed to lay off using my arm. With that said fishing has been very good for most species with walleyes and crappies topping out the list. If the wate...

                    Fishing is above average overall.  Most of the fish remain in the shallow waters, under 10 ft for the most part.  The best bite on the lake is Bluegills and Largemouth bass.                 Crappie fishing ha...

                As long as the weather keeps warming, the fishing keeps improving daily.  This past week we had significant SW winds which made most of the lake unfishable. I’ve been catching most of my fish from the Abbey Springs area to the Military Academy.     &n...

    Central Wisconsin Outdoor ReportThis has to be one of the most unpredictable springs that I can remember.  Between the constantly changing temperatures and weather conditions the spring fishing and hunting have been all over the map.  Currently we are at minor flood stage on the Wisconsin River with rain forecasted for all day Friday.&nbs...

                    This has been the hardest I have worked in May to catch fish I can remember.  I’m not sure if it’s the weather or the tremendous amount of fishing pressure but every trip has been a struggle.         &...

    With the weather patterns such that they are and the depth of Lake Geneva, the lake is still very cool.  The most consistent fishing is in the 3-4 ft water depth range.                 Smallmouth bass have been sporadic.  If you can find the bait fish, you will li...

Despite the dirty water Small Mouth Fishing has begun in Sandcut. Anglers have been successful using plastics on light jigs, crank-baits, hair...

    April 22, 2019 Steve Suman  A rainy Sunday night and Monday give way to a mostly warm, dry (possible exception Wednesday), and sunny remainder of the week (minor setback Friday night/Saturday). Less than two weeks from the fishing opener and in general the weather is trending in the right direction... can only hope it continues! Get out and ...

    Well things are turning around a little bit and we are finding a few locations to get on the ice.  With the recent warmer weather we have been seeing some of the ice is becoming accessible but it is sloppy. We also found some okay conditions further south in the state and we were able to get on some very good perch fishing.  Again acces...

    Gamefish seasons almost always seem to close rather quietly around here.  Late ice anglers tend to gear up for panfish.  But this may have been one of the quietest in a long time. The two feet plus of snow combined with the two feet of ice that is sandwiching, in some places, 8-10” of slush and water is making a work out of our spo...

    Panfish and Crappie action has been steady with some nice fish being caught. Jigs tipped with Spikes or P3 plastics have been doing well along with smaller spoons. The bite has been very lite and our guides have been relying on St Croix Legend Black series rods with the bite indicator built in to see the super light hits. Pictured is David Carlson ...

    The warm unseasonable air temps really brought out a lot of anglers over the weekend. Many anglers were putting out permanent ice shacks. Ice thickness ranged around 7 inches. Vehicle traffic is definitely not advised. Anyone traveling across lakes whether on foot or on ATV /sleds should be aware that ice thickness can change so be careful. Ang...

    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...
