    Steve Suman   According to this week’s forecast, every day following Monday should be sunny and somewhat mild, though cooler than in recent weeks. Perhaps most surprising is the lack of chances for rain and thunderstorms! This could be a GREAT week for outdoor recreation of all types – other than waterfowl hunting. Get out take a...

    Fall fishing is in full swing now that last week’s cold nights helped to put the turnover behind us for the most part.  You may see surface temps top out in the mid 50’s or higher early in the week due to a couple of warm days, but, that won’t recreate a turnover as sub-surface temps will remain in the low 50’s now.Musk...

    October 10, 2016 Steve Suman This week (according to forecasts) brings cooler temperatures, but with generally improved chances for sunshine, especially when compared with many (most?) forecasts throughout this past summer and fall! It is October – enjoy it! “We are in a very late fall,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “wi...

    Finally the look and feel of fall is here.  Trees peaked, cold nights, temperate days.  It’s musky time!Musky:  Good-Very good.  Could be better if not for some high sky days.  Water temps have fallen and the sucker bite is on!  Surface temps for the weekend were between 55-61 degrees.    That has prett...

    Lake Geneva’s water has been cooling slower than I can remember.  The water temperature is still 64-66 degrees.  The best bite has been largemouth bass.  They are in the medium depth rocks with weeds in 15-18 ft of water.  The best location has been by South Shore Club or by Trinkes.  They can either be caught while ...

    The exceptionally warm fall has the fall bite delayed a bit.  With the cooler water temperatures the fishing is starting to improve.  The walleyes I’ve been catching are in 20-25 ft of water.  They can be caught on chrome and blue jigging Rapalas or lindy rigging extra large fat head minnows.  The best location has been b...

    Well the fall changeover has started and it has started off with a bang.  The musky bite has been nothing short of phenomenal this past week and you will see from the photos just how good it was. The walleyes and crappies have moved to their tradition fall locations and are stacked up.  Activity in the woods has increased with hunters see...

    October 3, 2016 Hayward Lakes Area Outdoor Report Steve Suman Chances for rain continue to dominate the forecasts, though current predictions show mild temperatures and sunshine sandwiching-in showers through the mid-week. In general, nice weather compared to what it “could” be this time of year! “The Quiet Lakes are very high...

    Water temps are holding around the low 60's on Washburn County lakes this week.  As we move into October look for cooling waters to concentrate fish all the more.  Musky fishing remains strong here, as lots of fish are still up shallow and are catchable. We've had multiple fish days this week.  Topwaters, shallow running crankbaits, ...

    What a great week in the outdoors in central Wisconsin.  We have had some outstanding fishing trips followed up by another very successful bear hunt.  Fishing has been very good for all species this past week with several nice catches with mixed bags of walleyes, crappies, white bass and catfish. Water temperatures are in the mid 60&rs...

    Steve Suman Conflicting weather forecasts (there’s a shocker!) show sunshine very early in the week, followed by chances of showers nearly every day thereafter. Mild temperatures hold steady, however, and continue through the weekend. The fall season is far too good and far too short, so do not allow a bit of “inclement weather” ...

    By most reports, this September has not been a typical September.  Very high water and above average surface temps could be the culprit.  What is usually a great month for walleye, crappie, bass and the start of the musky fall bite has fallen well short of expectations.  Still 10 days to go, but, without a major change in weather or ...

    Cooler temperatures this week have led to water temperatures dropping to the mid 60 degree range which has in turn increased fishing activity.  Bear hunters are also finding the cooler temperatures more seasonable and welcoming when heading out to the woods.  The 2016 Wisconsin Archery season also begins this weekend with many archers tak...
