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...

    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...

    9/1/16 - Reported by Jim Stroede Guide Service Musky fishing around Washburn County has really been picking up this past week, we've been catching lots of nice sized fish across the area.  Muskies are hitting a wide range of baits, topwaters, bucktails, and minnow baits have worked best for us recently.  Most fish are ...

    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 ...
  • 9/21/2016 8:20:00 AM
    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...

    Overall, the fishing on Lake Geneva remains a bit slow.  The warm water this summer has made the fishing a lot slower than typical for this time of year.  The lake has seen less pressure with the kids back to school.  As the water cools the fishing should improve greatly.  The best bite remains the largemouth bass. The largemou...

    Most of the past week, the heat has been above average and the lake temperature has been 4-5 degrees higher than normal for this time of year, this is also making the fishing a bit slower than normal for this time of year.  The overall size of the fish has been relatively small but there are still some great  numbers. Largemouth bass hav...

    Steve Suman   Showers and thunderstorms moved through the area early in the weekend, but Sunday brought mild temperatures and sunny skies. This week will be a mix of rain, sunshine, and moderate temperatures. It is starting to feel (and in some areas look) like fall in the North Woods!   “Falling water temperatures are slowly ch...

    September 5, 2016 Hayward Lakes Area Outdoor Report Steve Suman   September’s start looks to be a continuation of August and the past summer, with far too many chances for rain and thunderstorms throughout this week. Keep in mind those are NOT guarantees! On the optimistic side, it appears rain chances dwindle after mid-week, with su...

    9/9/2016- Reported by AAA Sports    The cooler weather is when the true fishing enthusiast get out on the water. The lazy days of summer are over. Fish are moving more as they water temps start to lower. This makes them more of a challenge as they're probably not where you been finding  them all summer. For ...

    It has been another fantastic week for outdoor activities in the central Wisconsin area.  We didn’t have much time for fishing this past week with the start of the 2016 bear season under way as we have been very busy in the woods baiting and prepping for the hunt.  This year our prepping and scouting payed off big time with 3 nice b...

    It has been another really good week for fishing in the central Wisconsin area.  Water temperatures are in the upper 60’s to low 70”s and the action has been very good for all species. Walleyes continue to be very active early and late in the day. We have been finding most of our fish by working a jig and minnow or a jig and crawl...
