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 ...

    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...

  • 12/18/2014 2:40:00 PM
    Warm temps over the weekend and early this week have melted all of the snow off the ice making ice conditions very slick, The lake ice is holding up fairly well to the warm temps with 8 to 15 inches being reported on most area lakes. Caution needs to be taken in current areas and high run off areas such as where drainage ditches enter the lakes and...
  • 12/18/2014 2:30:00 PM
    Most area lakes have between 6 and 10 inches of good solid ice with a few up to and near that 12 inch mark.  The snow cover is limited so travel and accessibility on the lakes has been very good. We had a great panfish bite in central Wisconsin this past week, with good numbers of both crappies and bluegills. Most of the fish are in 8 to 12 f...

    Well some very odd weather for mid-December, 40's, rain, fog, making for melting snow and ice! The story for the weekend... don't put tip-ups out more than 20' away, you'll never see the flags! Some anglers returned with tales of having a hard time finding their way off lakes due to the fog and no snow to follow their tracks back.Walleyes: Fair-V...

    Steve Suman According to forecasts, the rain, drizzle, and dense fog will soon give way to snow and temperatures that are “more seasonal.” We had a nice break, but ... we need colder weather and snow to thicken ice and pack snowmobile and cross-country ski trails. “Ice is 10-13 inches deep on the Quiet Lakes,” says Pat at ...

    More snow is in the short-term forecast, but it also predicts high temperatures in the 40s from Wednesday through Sunday! “Early ice is a good time for walleye anglers,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “Several anglers report limits of good size fish from deep weed edges on walleye suckers and fatheads under tip-ups. “Crap...

    Well, Its starting out to be a great ice fishing season! Enough ice to get around on... with not to much snow on the ice to worry about access or travel. Caution is still advised on some larger lakes (Trout, Fence, Big Crawling Stone) where ice thickness varies from 2-6" but overall averages of 10-12"+ cover most of our Lakeland area lakes.Walleyes...
  • 12/7/2014 9:05:00 PM
    This past week has been phenomenal for ice fishing.  With 5 to 10 inches of good ice and little snow on most lakes, travel conditions are about as perfect as you could want.  In addition to the great conditions the bite has been very good for all species.   Walleyes have been extremely active right before and after dark with some go...

    This week starts with subzero temperatures and wind chill advisories, but the forecast shows few chances for snow AND calls for a nice warming trend through the end of the week!   “Winter definitely set in early again this year,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “All Quiet Lakes waters iced up, with a few open spots only on the la...

    We had a slow start to the beginning of the 2014 gun deer season, but we did get off to a great start to our  ice fishing season with some phenomenal catches being made. Opening weekend starting off foggy and with high temperatures, deer movement was not only slower than normal but hunters visibility was drastically impeded.  With the fo...

    Steve Suman The welcome, though too brief, break from winter this past weekend is now history as winter weather again makes its mark. Forecasts call for another four to six inches of snow accumulation through Monday night, accompanied by up to 30 mph wind gusts. Not great – but it is also not Buffalo! Deer hunters enjoyed mild temperatures ...
  • 11/26/2014 11:35:00 AM
    With no doe tags and a lower then normal deer population many hunters decided to spend some or in cases most of opening weekend of the Wisconsin Deer Firearm season on the ice. Most area fishermen are reporting 5 to 7 inches of good ice on area lakes. Walleye and pike anglers have been hitting the ice for well over a week now and panfish anglers ar...

      With 3 to 6 inches of ice being reported on most area waters the Open Water fishing season has come to a screeching halt. There were mixed reviews on 2014 season, Walleye seemed to be a little tough but it was a great panfish season for most area anglers. Musky fishermen were torn, some reported a great season while other sad it was&nb...

    Steve Suman By now, most (though not all!) have accepted the reality that winter has arrived and it appears to be in for the long haul. Snow and cold remain in the forecast, however a warm-up is in the works for the end of the week! “Snow continued to pile up, temperatures continued to drop, and open water fishing season ended,” says ...

    Steve Suman According to the forecast (or a look out the window), our beautiful fall is coming to an ugly end, with considerable snow accumulation the first part of the week followed by COLD temperatures. Like it or not, ready for it or not, winter season is arriving in grand style. So be it – let the winter fun begin! “Fishing is goo...
