Now it starts.  Too much to keep up with in Wisconsin, and that is one nice problem for an outdoorsman. OWO Columnist Wayne Morgenthaler and his son Neal spelled double trouble for two Richland County gobblers after four days of not filling tags. We put the May-June issue of On Wisconsin Outdoors to bed last week with 100,000 copies being distributed statewide. Look for your copy at any Kwik Trip statewide…that’s 400 stores ...

    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...
  • 10/31/2016 10:00:00 AM
    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...

    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!

    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...

    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, ...
