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 ...

    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...

    Is there ice?  Yes.  Is it safe?  No.  Four nights of temps in the teens, with the last two very calm has forced water temps into the close to freezing ranges.  Some small ponds, edges of shallow lakes and bays of flowages have locked up.  The pond behind our shop froze yesterday (11/21) which typically means that Mino...

    Well it was a tough opener in Wisconsin for the 2016 gun deer season.  With winds gusting over 40 MPH and warm temperatures the deer were not moving well.  Despite the lack of movement hunters were surprisingly successful.  As the week progressed the weather got better and a number of big bucks were taken.  In addition to the nu...

    Well here we are, the start of the 2016 nine-day gun deer season.  In Wisconsin it’s busier than any official holiday as hunters get ready to travel across the state to their favorite hunting destinations.  With that said I hope everyone has a safe and memorable hunt.  Weather conditions across the state look to be in for a dra...

    As October seems to have slid into the second week of November, anglers are finding good reason to get the boats out for “one last shot” at landing a musky or putting some last minute fish in the freezer.  A few 20 degree mornings have helped push surface temps into the upper 40’s all throughout the Lakeland area.  Some ...

    It has been another fantastic week here in central Wisconsin for outdoor activities. The weather has been about as perfect as one could want for fall activities and the hunting and fishing have been very good.  Water temperatures are holding right around that 50 degree mark with good current flow on the Wisconsin River. The musky fishing ha...

    We just dropped the anchor and the current swung us around until the anchor finally held. The wind across the Mississippi River was gusting and the high water with resulting strong current tugged at our boat. We were in about sixteen feet of water.Bruce and his grandson, Jack baited their three way rigs, dropping them into the fast moving water. I ...

    What a change in weather this past week, and not for the better if you are an outdoorsmen.  At this time of the year, we as outdoorsmen are looking for cooler days and nights to not only bring down the water temperatures but to kick-star the fall rut.  Right now our water temperatures are holding right around the 50 degree mark but it doe...

    With the end of October, interest in fishing drops off.  Anglers are still in pursuit of Musky.   Some walleyes and a few crappie/perch fisherman can also be found.  With water temps a bit above average (reports of 47-53 degrees) there is still plenty of time to get out and pursue your favorite fish.Musky:  Very good. ...

    It has been a very exciting week here in Central Wisconsin.  We have had outstanding walleye and crappie fishing, along with a very good perch bite.  In addition to the previously mentioned species the musky bite has really come into its own.  Water temperatures are holding steady in the lower to mid-fifties which has some good fish ...

    10/27/16 - Reported by Jim Stroede Guide Service I've been fishing muskie exclusively here in the month of October.  The bite has been good to very good most days.  One thing that has been working well is dragging live suckers and casting big minnow baits. We are catching more fish deeper rather than shallow this week, see...
