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...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The ice is a lot safer now with the cold weather.  The ice fishing on the backwaters of the Wisconsin River for pan fish has been slow.  The bite has been early in the morning and only a couple of feet below the ice.  Now that the water temperature is changing the fish should be more towards the bottom.  T...

    1/14/16- Reported by- Long Lake Bait, Tackle & C-Store Ice condition reports on Long Lake are coming in at around 6"-8"  with a few 10" spots.  Crappies have started to bite.  Folks this week have been catching Crappie, Bluegill, Perch, Bass, Walleye & Northern.  Most folks have been using Waxies & spikes ...

    Well we are finally seeing some safe ice on most of our area lakes and guys are getting out to their favorite hot spots. That doesn’t mean it’s safe everywhere but there is a few good locations for anglers to head out.  Always use caution when heading out on the ice. The bite has been very good for all species of panfish as well...

    ASHLAND , Wis. - An emergency rule governing the lake trout harvest in Lake Superior takes effect today (Monday, Jan. 11) following a series of public input opportunities and administration approvals. The rule, which includes a daily bag limit of three lake trout in key recreational areas, was developed through extensive public input includin...

    Steve Suman For people who wondered if winter weather would ever arrive this year – it is here! The sub-zero lows forecast for this week, combined with (at this time) no “major” snow events, should build good ice on the lakes and freeze the swamps so snowmobile trail crews can stake the entire system. Conditions should then be ex...

     ~ 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.  Winter is here, folks!  The Ashland area has received 3-4 more inches of fresh snow over the last couple of days with more on the way.  And despite temperature...
  • 1/12/2016 10:45:00 AM
    Finally some true cold winter like weather to help make the ice we need to be able to safely venture out. Air temps shot down into the negative degree marks, enough to expect a good inch plus of ice to be made per day over the next five plus days. Once some lakes become safe for vehicle travel by next weekend, dispersing the fishing pressure and a...

    First report of the new year…  Happy New Year everyone!!!! Finally we are starting to see some safe ice in the central Wisconsin area. Lakes in central Wisconsin are averaging 3 to 6 inches of ice depending on their size. The larger flowages are still unpredictable and have just started to freeze up.  I wouldn’t suggest h...

    1/6/2016- Reported by Jim Stroede Guide Service Ice fishing is in full swing here in Washburn County. Ice thickness varies from lake to lake, however, the places I've been out on had 5 1/2 inches of good ice over this past weekend.  Generally walk out access is good in most places, ATV or driving trucks out onto the ice is not ...

    It’s difficult predicting what to expect for ice conditions this week when you can’t rely on weather forecast to be very reliable about snow. That said…… here goes! Christmas Day the wind laid down long enough to put a skim on a lot of lakes. On lakes that already had some fishable ice, things got better as ice thickness ...

    ~ 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.  Well, we sure could use a blast of that polar vortex right about now!  Even though shoreline ice has finally started to form in the bay during the last few days, anyone wh...

    These reports are hard to write when given the conditions we have here. Just enough (3-5”) ice to get out on in some areas, while most lakes remain open. Our one chance of real ice making cold (6 degrees on 12-19) was mixed with just enough wind to keep new ice from forming. Places that did have ice made more, but most lakes don’t have ...

    ~ 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. Many anglers are getting anxious and tired of playing the waiting game. Some folks have even wondered if t...

    This past week has seen some drastic changes.  We started the week out with just enough ice to allow for some foot travel and then bam it was gone. Warm temperatures and rain quickly diminished any future hopes of getting out ice fishing.  With that happening I decided to pull the boat out of storage and head back out on the river. Wow wh...

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 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...

    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)...

There have been reports o...
