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...

    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 ...

    This incredibly mild November has given way for anglers to take advantage of increased opportunities out on the water.   Surface temps of 47-53 degrees are being reported throughout the Lakeland area.  Anglers finding good fishing for many species this weekend that typically by now they’ve given up on.Musky:  Very good.&nb...

    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 ...

    Anglers faced a variety of weather changes last week, from very high to extremely low barometer readings, lots of sun, to fog so thick it lasted into the afternoon on one day.  The weather affected the really good fishing anglers had been experiencing the previous week.Musky:  Good.  A few tough days due to weather, but, still some g...

    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...

    It has been another great week here in Central Wisconsin.  The fishing has been outstanding and the big bucks are starting to move.  Water temperatures are now in the upper 40’s to lower 50’s on area lakes and rivers. With the rut starting to get into full swing big central Wisconsin bucks are becoming less nocturnal and mo...

    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...
