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 ...

    Delavan Lake,WI largemouth caught with Dave Duwe's Guide Service Fishing on Delavan has been excellent.  Most of the fish have completed their spawn.  The largemouth bass and bluegills have moved out on the weed line. The best location for the bluegills has been by Browns Channel or Assembly Park.  The fish have pulled out of the...

     ~ Fishing guides from Anglers All, 715/682-5754, report the following: This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay.  “Well, we’ve still got the dirty water shoved into the head of the bay, but they’re getting walleye anyway,” noted Carolyn Swartz, co-owner of Anglers All. She said walleye fishe...

    Mike Yurk There was the slightest tick on my line when I set the hook. There wasn’t any movement at first, but I could feel thumping against the line. Then the fish exploded, tearing off. My spinning rod was bent double as the fish raced away. I yelled to Doug that I had a big fish. Dropping his spinning rod, he grabbed the net.  Mike ...

    A lot of rain this past week has the rivers and flowages in our area in central Wisconsin running high and dirty right now.  What that means is tough fishing but not impossible. When that water gets this high and dirty we usually give the river a day or two to start settling down or we spend a lot of our time on the main lake area.  We ge...

    Steve Suman This week’s forecast shows cool temperatures (frost possible Tuesday night in some areas!) early in the week and “chances for showers” nearly every day. It also says mostly sunny for many of those same days. (Really?) Temperatures turn much warmer toward the end of this week and weekend. “Check the regulations,...

    Delavan has been overall very good.  The only bite not really available yet is the northern pike.  There are loads of bluegills and perch in the shallows currently and they are heavily feeding.  Bluegill action has been great in 3-4 ft of water.  The fish are now spawning so be selective in harvesting the catch, avoid keeping t...

    By John Luthens My partner Tom Nigl and I staked out the bluegill ambush for weeks in advance. We traced the scene of the crime into a back bay of Lake Winnebago, just outside of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, to a place where a fallen willow tree had folded into the water over a sloping shoal. We made a vow that nothing would sneak into those sunken branche...

    Early June starting out a bit wet and windy. Water temps have settled into the mid 60’s and many species have settles into their late spring patterns. Walleye: Very Good. The cloud cover has benefitted day time walleye anglers. Casting diving cranks (ShadRaps, Flicker Shads, and Smash Shads) over and through cabbage beds of 8-12’ has p...

    Lake Geneva fishing is starting to pick up with the warming waters.  The smallmouth bass have almost completed their spawn and remain near their spawning flats.  Next to spawn will be the largemouth bass which will happen in the next week or so.  Smallmouth bass are near their spawning flats such as Elgin Club, South Shore Club and ...

    The 2016 northern Wisconsin musky opener started out with a bang.  If I could have written up a recipe for success I couldn’t have done much better than what actually happened.  My two clients for the opener were Nap and Mike Pozulp who have been fishing with me for the opener for 15 years now, and at the end of this trip they bo...

    Constantly changing weather in the last week has made for some challenging fishing conditions for most anglers across the Northwoods. Water temperatures seem to be holding in the mid-60’s on most lakes and this has extended the spawning activity for a lot of crappie, largemouth and smallmouth bass.  This has also gotten a few blue...

    Price County Fishing Report The bluegill bite continues to be strong and I think it will go good right into the weekend on some area lakes. My clients and I have been taking advantage of this hot bite and selective harvesting some nice 10 fish limits, we must really be careful on how many of these fish we harvest at this time of year because they ...

    A soggy Memorial weekend put a damper on what could have been a great opener, but, despite the forecast (and unfortunate reality), anglers who dodged the rain in many cases faired pretty well. Northern Pike:  Very good.  Many being caught by anglers targeting other species (bass, walleye and musky).  Big chubs and suckers of 5-7&rdq...

    May 30, 2016 Steve Suman This spring seems filled with “chances for rain,” but is that unusual? The forecast for this week lists mild temperatures and varied chances for thunderstorms. Do not let “chances” for rain impede your outdoor pursuits. Go expecting sunshine, but prepared for wet! “Once again, a chain of pas...

    Fishing on Delavan Lake has been very good overall, with largemouth bass and bluegills being both active and readily available.  Remember during spawning season, the future of our lakes depends on catch and release. Bluegills are in 3-5 ft of water in the sand pockets of the weeds.  They are not spawning yet but they are getting ready.&n...

    Overall the action on Lake Geneva has been hit or miss.  I haven’t had success catching the smallmouth bass near their spawning flats yet.  The best action has been the bluegills and largemouth bass.  Remember that during spawning season, the future of our lakes depend on catch and release. Largemouth bass has been best in Gen...

    5/24/16- Reported by Jim Stroede Guide Service Fishing this week around Washburn County has been a mixed bag of sorts.  Crappies are shallow for spawning and are bitting on a variety of soft plastics in 1-4 feet of water. Smallmouth Bass likewise are in the spawning mode. We've caught and released some nice ones the past f...
