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...

    The Lake Michigan and Green Bay Outdoor Fishing Report has been updated with current fishing information for Green Bay.  Please use extreme caution on the ice, as we have heard reports of 8 inches of ice in one area but 4 inches or less just 20 feet away.  Snow, rain, and strong winds today will also change condit...

    January 9, 2017 Steve Suman Snow continues to fall in the North Woods, though not in huge quantities. Still, accumulations will build if colder temperatures hold – more is on the way mid-week – but the forecast is for mid-20s on Sunday. “The ice is not yet safe enough for vehicles,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “b...

    Severe cold kept all but the hardiest (most foolish?) of anglers off the ice this past week.  Nighttime lows in the minus teens to twenties hurt participation for now.  Building ice though will help anglers from here on out.Along with the cold, high pressure hung over the area, compounding what was already tough fishing conditions.Yellow ...

    As I begin the first report of 2017 let me wish everyone a Happy New Year. Our 2017 ice fishing season has started off just like many fireworks, with a boom.  Walleye fishing is off the grid followed by great crappie, perch, bluegill, and pike fishing.  Ice conditions across central Wisconsin are getting better by the day. Most area lake...

    By John Luthens Native Americans burned ceremonial fires, dancing in forgotten places to dispel the past and welcome in the future. Many of Finnish descent prefer to sit in a wood burning smoke sauna, sweating the demons out and letting them curl into the wind. Call it superstition, call it mumbo jumbo, but I have come to believe there are healing...

Rick took them to se...

    Ice conditions in central Wisconsin are about as perfect as one could want.  Contrary to popular belief the rain last weekend did more good for ice fishing than bad. The rain knocked down the snow and slush on top of the ice allowing it to freeze solidly the following couple of days.  We now have an average of 4 to 8 inches of good solid ...

    January 2, 2017 Steve Suman It is winter in the North Woods and this week’s forecast reflects the season – cold, snow, and wind in various combinations. There is no winter recreation without winter, so get out and enjoy your favorite winter activity! “This year’s ice fishing season started a little late due to the slow bu...

    December 19, 2016 Steve Suman  This week’s forecast mentions snow on a few days – as well as chances for a winter storm that could affect Christmas weekend – but the temperatures should be MUCH milder than in the past week (so they say), though with strong winds. The recent snow and cold set the mood for winter recreation, ...

    Ice fishing season is here. With the recent cold snap area lakes and backwater locations off the river system have been forming ice.  A lot of locations have anywhere from 3 to 5 inches of good ice with some snow cover for good traction and walking.  We have been out catching walleyes, pike and panfish. The walleye bite has primarily b...

    Well I wasn’t sure we would have much to write about his week but Mother Nature took a turn and gave us a present.  Cold weather, and it looks like we are going to have safe fishable ice by this weekend.   With many area lakes now freezing over anglers should be able to get out on some of their favorite early ice hot-spots and ...

    12/8/16 - Reported by Stone Lake Bait & Tackle The Stone Lake area lakes are cooperating nicely with the forecast although there's not enough ice to venture out yet in my opinion. The wind we've had has been keeping the waves rolling pretty good. This should change a lot by this time next week. We'll be closed this weekend but we've got f...
