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 ...

    Spawned from the Madison Fishing Expo Madison- WI: The Wisconsin Fishing Expo(WFE) was spawned from the Madison Fishing Expo(MFE) and will have all the things anglers have come to expect from the MFE, and bring a variety of new vendors, speakers, and attractions for 2016! There’s no question that anglers can be confident that they will see ...

    Two days in a row of rain has just about melted out most fishable ice. Another shot of rain / snow on Wed. should do in any thoughts of being on the ice till lateThursday. By then, lows in the teens, followed by highs in the teens Friday, should give us some new ice to work with. Due to present conditions, keep an eye on our shop web sit...

    ~ Fishing guides Roger LaPenter and Luke Kavajecz from Anglers All, 715/682-5754, report the following: This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay.  Because of the continued warm weather, ice fishing is still on hold. Very few people are going out fishing right now because they’ve already put their boats away for the...

    Fishing Report for Long Lake!Time to get your Fishing boats out of storage! The Fish are biting! Water temps are around 40 degrees. Reports of nice sized Crappie in 20' suspended at about 10' using crappie minnows. Bluegill are also liking the minnows over Waxies! Also Walleyes being caught off the edge of the weed beds fairly shallow using suckers...

    Mother Nature is not being kind to us ice anglers. She’s being a big tease. Some small lakes and bays have just enough ice (3-4”) to lure a few adventurous anglers out. Other lakes, due to highs in the upper 30’s to 40 degrees have become just iffy enough to keep anglers off. Several large / deep lakes are still open. Yellow Perc...

    ~ Fishing guides Roger LaPenter and Luke Kavajecz from Anglers All, 715/682-5754, report the following: This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay.  With so many sportsmen occupied with deer season recently, there hasn’t been much fishing going on, but trolling for brown trout and splake is still happening.  Water te...

    Finally enough cold to give ice anglers a preview of the coming ice fishing season. Not sure how long this will last, not a lot of real cold in the forecast, but for now most lakes are ice covered and some fishable with measurements of 3-4” available. Early reports of good Walleye and Crappie fishing from anglers able / willing to go out and...

    Steve Suman Deer hunters who differ on their favorite hunting weather should all be happy at least one day this week, as the forecast includes clear, cloudy, cold, calm, wind, mild, rain, and snow at various points throughout the week! Enjoy a safe and happy Thanksgiving Day! “Fishing in the Quiet Lakes area went into idle with deer seaso...

    Its gun deer season, so little going on over the water, but a few diehards still venturing out. Muskie: Good. Fewer anglers and a little less action, but fish still being caught – mostly on suckers. Last day to fish Musky is Nov 30th, so some time left. Crappies: Good. Gets the nod over Walleyes as good numbers and big fish (14 plus inches)...

    ~ Fishing guides Roger LaPenter and Luke Kavajecz from Anglers All, 715/682-5754, report the following: This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay.  Fishing has been pretty good again this past week for those who did venture out with walleye, brown trout, and coho salmon still being caught in the bay. There have been reports o...

    Windy weather and almost steady rain has kept us from fishing and hunting as much as we would have liked to this past week, but we did manage to get out and enjoy some time both in the woods and on the water.  Water temperatures are in the low 40’s but with the forecasted weekend temperatures dipping down into the low teens, don’...

    11/9/15- Reported by AAA Sports  The fall fishing has been spotty. Of course, there are not as many anglers out there, as many of them take to the woods this time of year. Muskie fishing is going well. This week looks pretty good for weather, so we suspect we will have a few guys headed out during the day. We'll keep you posted!

    Getting Aggressive at First Ice The first ice period can produce some of the best ice fishing opportunities of the entire season.  Some of the biggest fish of the season, and some of the greatest numbers show up at this time.  I believe that there are a couple of different reasons for this activity.  One being that these fish are at...

    Cool and wet! While the threat of an early snow was on last week’s forecast, few people saw the little snow we did get as it melted before dawn. Water temps have dropped this past week, low surface temps at 45 degrees to as high as 52 degrees. Could actually climb a little as forecast for low 60’s scheduled for Mon thru Wed. of this wee...

    What an outstanding week it has been. Big muskies, lots of walleyes and a few nice bucks. All taken right here in central Wisconsin. This past week we have soon an abundance of walleyes on our trips. Most of the fish have been in the 14 to 16 inch range but we have picked up a few nice fish in the mid to upper 20’s.  The best action is ...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The fall is a great time to take a trip to northern Wisconsin around the Hayward area.  Most small lakes and rivers do not get much fishing action.  Knowing what baits to use and what areas to target is key to being successful. I generally won’t head north until they have a good hard frost and most of the lea...
  • 10/28/2015 4:50:00 PM
    Despite some cold nights (temps dipping into frost time) daily average temperatures have been a few degrees above normal, leaving the lakes cool downs in a holding pattern. Almost daily changes in the wind direction, more so temperature change, have been the deciding factor in angler’s success. The consistent water temps have actually helped ...
  • 10/23/2015 1:35:00 PM
     Another week is in the books and it was another good one!  All signs point towards a great fall season.  Fishing has been good despite the warm-up we recently had causing a temporary slow-down in musky fishing.  There is no need for concern as cooler forecasted temperatures will turn those big fish back on.  Walleyes have...

    Steve Suman This week should bring warmer temperatures, though the trade-off might be rain showers (note they are rainshowers!) Fall is THE time to explore the North Woods and take part in the plethora of outdoor activities. Fishing, hunting, hiking, biking, golfing, sightseeing, attending various fall events – deciding “what&rdqu...
  • 10/23/2015 1:15:00 PM
    Cold nights with lows in the lower 30 degree range and some highs barely breaking 40 degrees last week pushed surface temps down. Some smaller shallower lakes saw surface water hit 47 degrees while mid – sized lakes 1,000 acre Big Arb for example) read 51-52 degrees and the largest lakes still about 54-55 degrees. Fishing pressure getting lig...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler Trout season is over and the stream water levels are very low.  The leaves are in full color and the hills and valleys are gorgeous at this time of year.  This is a great time to take photos and watch for migration of the birds as they head south. Backwater fishing along the Wisconsin River from Spring Green to B...

    10/14/15-Reported by Jim Stroede Guide Service We are still catching good numbers of quality sized Muskies in my boat, we've had fish up to 48 inches caught and released so far this fall. More and more fish are being caught on live suckers in the 14 to 18 inch range. The best artificial lures have been jerkbaits and minnow baits. Good luck ...

    Steve Suman This week’s forecast indicates more seasonal temperatures, with some wind and possible showers, but “sunshine” is the dominate term nearly every day. Grab your jacket and get outdoors! “Musky anglers are fishing weed edges in 8-12 feet with medium bucktails,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “and do n...
