    ~ Fishing guides from Anglers All, 715/682-5754, report the following: This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay.  With daytime highs in the 40s and even some 50s, ice conditions are changing very rapidly now.   “Can you get out there (on the ice) is one question,” noted Carolyn Swartz, co-owner of Angler...

    Most of the area rivers and streams have opened up with the recent runoff during our abnormal warm temps. All of the dams on the Elk river system have good amounts of water moving thru them and high current areas of the areas flowages like the Phillips Chain, Musser and Soo lakes have started to open. The South Fork of the Flambeau river is wide op...

    After a week of watching the fishing plummet right along with the air temperature (20 below on Valentine’s Day) some fresh reports from Monday (2/15) are going to help add a little better outlook on this week’s report.  The sub-zero temps and winds kept most anglers looking for other things to do this past weekend.  ...

    It has been another fantastic week for ice fishing here in Central Wisconsin.  With the warm temperatures this past week the ice conditions have started to diminish but we still have good safe ice on a lot of area lakes. Ice thicknesses range from 13 to 18 inches on most area lakes, but the river systems are opening up and bodies of water that...

    Thanks to high winds last Monday (2/29) that blew most of the remaining snow off the lakes, followed by nights in the single digits, we started the weekend with the best ice/travel conditions of the season.  It’s going to go downhill from here.  While forecast can’t always be trusted (didn’t rain last night), the call i...

    ~ Fishing guides from Anglers All, 715/682-5754, report the following: This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay.  Fishing continues to be pretty good for those who are venturing out.  A wide variety of fish are being caught in the area, including brown trout, whitefish, perch, northern pike and splake. The wind and ...

    Holy smokes was it ever a great week to be out on the ice.  The flags were flying and the fish were going crazy.  We had one of the best weeks I can possibly remember. The northern pike bite was just crazy this past week, with not only numbers but some big fish too.  Most of the action came on tip-ups baited up with large golden s...

    Steve Suman  Following a beautiful, sunny Saturday with a high in the 50s and a colder, windy Sunday, this week will be more winter-like until the weekend – when the highs (so “they” say) will be in the upper 30s to mid-40s.  “Ice conditions are still good,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “but there are al...
  • 3/4/2016 1:10:00 PM
    A February record temperature for Saturday (52 degrees) unfortunately did not set any records for fish catching. As been the case on most of our nicer weekends, great weather did not equate to great fishing. Maybe it was the number of anglers, maybe the high barometer at times. While certain lakes produced well, others that had been imp...

    February 22, 2016 Steve Suman The weekend’s mild, wet weather was far from perfect for Birkie skiers, snowmobilers, and ice anglers, but all went forward and (most) enjoyed a good time following their favorite pursuits. This week, nights turn colder with temperatures in the teens (that should firm up things!), highs fluctuate from teens to ...
  • 2/24/2016 12:10:00 PM
    Finally something to write a report about! Fishing picked up across the board over the weekend, with Saturdays west winds and above freezing temps bringing the best of the weeks fishing. Yellow Perch: Very Good. Deep water anglers plying the mud flats of 20-30’ of water had good success using Halis, Pimples, Perch Talkers and VMC Chandelier...

    2/19/2016- Reported by AAA Sports  The past 2 days we have had some good reports. Crappies, perch and walleye around the area have been good early morning on Spooner Lake and Lipsie Lake. Early evening has been good on Shell Lake.  A guy was in with his limit of panfish off of Dilly Lake.  They are using mostly...

    By John Luthens  I rolled into the Wendt’s marina sturgeon registration station in Van Dyne, Wisconsin on the western shore of Lake Winnebago, tentatively poking my head out of the truck to test the weather. The zero-degree marker of the Fahrenheit scale seemed to be the center of an election year struggle. The sun voted in favor of an ...

    ~ Fishing guides from Anglers All, 715/682-5754, report the following: This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay.  Although the ice on the bay is definitely not as thick as most years, the majority of ice fishermen are just glad to have the chance to get out and drop a line. Strong winds have broken up and blown away the ...

    Once again our area missed the heavy snow that was predicted, a narrow band of only 4-5” when both east and west of our area got 9-10” last Tuesday. Also the snow was light and dry. High winds pushed most of it off the lakes, maintaining good travel for A.T.V’s as well as snowmobiles and some truck travel where ice thickness allow...

    It has been another great week in Central Wisconsin. Ice conditions remain in the 7 to 16 inch range depending on the lake or flowage.   The fishing has been outstanding with some really nice catches of all species. Walleyes have been very active as well as pike during the daylight hours.  Most of the action has been in shallow water al...

    A second weekend in a row of fishing success not meeting the expectations of us anglers, what with all the great weather we had. Warm temps cresting 40 degrees, a little sunshine, made for a great time to be on the ice., just not as much under the ice. Reports from Fri / Sat were slow, with things picking up by Sun/ Monday as the fishing...

    Steve Suman Sunshine and temperatures in the 40s (some recorded 50s!) last weekend brought thoughts of spring. This week’s forecast, with single-digit lows, 20-degree highs, and snow, should quickly bring back the reality of winter. “The bite is good for all species,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “with panfish leading th...
