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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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.  Those ...

    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...

    Ice conditions in Central Wisconsin range from 7 to 16 inches depending on the body of water you are fishing.  With flowages and the river system you can never be too cautious when it comes to ice conditions. The action has been very good that past few weeks here in Central Wisconsin. We are mainly targeting walleyes, pike and panfish, and ...

    Following two consecutive very cold weekends, this past weekend was a nice change weather wise.  Unfortunately the fishing wasn’t as great as the weather for a lot of anglers.  Initial reports were slow, though as the weekend progressed into Monday, better reports came in from anglers who didn’t give up. Crappies:  ...

    By John Luthens I was forty feet above Sauk Creek, on the fringes of Port Washington, Wisconsin. It was shaping up to be a perfect, January stalk. The rocky banks were snow covered and the water swirled through ice flows below. The only tracks winding to the water below were made by deer and coyotes. I was working above a deep pool that I hoped mi...

    1/22/2016- Reported by Long Lake Bait, Tackle & C-Store The snowmobile/ATV lake trail was staked yesterday.  Thanks to all who helped with this! Crews were finding the ice depths anywhere from 6" to 10" and occasional 12". Very inconsistent.  Snowmobiles and ATV's should stay on the trail.  I received a call from Darle...

    Steve Suman The Hayward forecast shows moderate temperatures this week, with highs and lows primarily in the 20s and 30s. The trade-off is a chance of snow every day, though so far not much for accumulation. We have plenty of good ice and decent snow cover, so all winter recreation is a “go” at this time. “Severe cold the past c...

    A near mirror image of the previous week’s weather (nicer temps on Thursday and Friday, temps falling through the day Saturday followed by below zero and wind on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday) put participation levels on par with the week before, but, results were somewhat better. While ice thickness continues to b...
