    ~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter and wife Carolyn Swartz from Anglers All, 715/682-5754 (http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com), report the following: This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay.  The mid-season ice fishing is really great with plenty of opportunities to haul in just about everything that swims out ther...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler I have been watching the weather on days I like to fish and partly cloudy are the best.  The mornings during the first three hours have produced very good fishing.  Ice is thick in most places with a few springs along the shoreline keeping water open if you’re fishing the backwaters of the Wisconsin River.&nb...

    Following a chilly week, temps got nice enough over the weekend to get anglers out on the ice. Many experienced good, though not great fishing- but after the way things were in mid-January, good is pretty darn nice.Northern Pike: Good. Action is picking up. Fish of all sizes doing well on large baits (suckers & shiners) in weeds of 6-12', wit...

    Steve Suman Mild temperatures to start this week give way to a brief “cooling” spell through from mid-week through the weekend, with (at this time) light snow with no major accumulation. Get out and enjoy winter – it is winding down already! “Walleye anglers continue to do well,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “Fis...

    What a difference a year makes. Last year at this time, travel on the ice was almost impossible with the amount of snow and slush we had. Right now, travel is very easy on the ice which is a good thing when wanting to chase finicky mid-winter fish. I always like to say, stay mobile and always continue to look for the right fish you want to catch. S...

    February is one of those months that can make for some tough fishing. Fish are settled in their winter haunts, and some are not to overly aggressive. Location is a big factor to help get bites  The walleyes are sitting in deep water at this time of year. Some are suspended chasing open water baitfish, while some are still cruising the bo...

    Down to just four weekends of the gamefish season left! Luckily things did improve some this past week, not great, but definitely better than that two week "dead zone" we had a couple of weeks ago.Walleye: Good. The bite is improving, especially for the after dark crowd. Sandgrass flats or humps of 18-28' producing #'s of nice eaters for anglers ...

    One of the most frustrating things about ice fishing is seeing the fish on your electronics and the best you can do is get them to follow your bait around a little. What do most of us do when this happens? We down size, Size 16 and 18 micro jigs with one spike or a micro sized plastic should do the trick, right? Well.... Maybe your going the wrong ...

    By John Luthens Cedar Creek conducts its winding business through Ozaukee County. It loafs across the western county line in a family-run affair, smaller, and evenly-split between farmland and private residence. Further to the east, it incorporates the towns of Grafton and Cedarburg, where the breed of housing and business along the banks becomes ...

    Do you have what it takes to be the “Last Angler Standing? Ice Duels is a competitive ice fishing tournament that pits anglers in head to head, 30 minute matches in a double elimination format. Sitting back to back, you have 30 minutes to outfish your opponent while a scorekeeper scores your fish before you release it.  Bluegill and cra...

    Steve Suman This week looks to be somewhat mild and with light snow, though a cooling trend develops by next weekend. While there is still plenty of time to enjoy winter activities, we are already (almost) into February! “Anglers report 18-20 inches of ice on Quiet Lakes area lakes,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “and walleye a...

    Mild weather last week gave anglers plenty of reason to head out onto the ice. But sloppy conditions kept many from venturing out to far away from the usual haunts.While ice thickness continues to average in the 14-18" range, some areas of heavy use or early freezes have reports of 22"+. Despite this we have gotten two reports this past week of lar...

    Cold temps the first part of January have made ice conditions great in the Price County Area, Some Lakes like Musser have a heavy layer of slush but for most part the lakes aren't too bad to get around on. Walleye action has been ok, most anglers are reporting an early morning first light and late afternoon last light bite. Tip ups tipped with a m...

    It has been another great week to be in Central Wisconsin but it has been a cold one.  With temperatures barely getting above zero, we have been basically banished to stay in our homes and off the ice.  Speaking of ice the conditions are getting better by the day.. average ice thickness in the central Wisconsin area is anywhere from 8 to ...

    Steve Suman The New Year is starting with a chill in the air! The forecast calls for single-digit highs through most of the week, with subzero lows and brutal wind chills.

    Arctic air has moved into the Lakeland area, dropping temperatures and anglers enthusiasm rather quickly. Not wanting to push their luck against temps 20deg+ below zero, there is little to report over the past couple of days.Crappie: Fair / Poor. A few brave anglers found crappies relating to wood on the flowages. Bite was fairly decent on crappi...

    Steve Suman Winter returned to the North Woods, if not with a vengeance, at least with a chip on its shoulder. The long-range forecast shows a few milder days in the near future, with somewhat of a warming trend from mid-January to the end. Not that that can’t change between now and then! Best wishes for a safe, sane, and Happy Ne...

    A week of stable weather meant no ice loss, but little gain. A heavy fresh snow on Sunday afternoon (12/21) will mean you can leave the cleats at home. New snow accumulation was about 1.5 to 2", forecast is for sporadic snows over the next week, but fairly mild temps in the low to mid 30's. New moon period this week should provide daytime...
