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 ...

      Steve Suman This week’s weather seems to slip and slide into a new season, with the “s” word used once or twice, and Saturday’s low in the teens. It was a great fall run! “Muskie anglers are on the water and the bigger fish are starting to feed,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “Best action is wit...

    Lots of different weather as of late and because of  these daily changes, patterns have been hard to set up. Musky:  Very good-good.  Daily action  is changing with the  weather.  Fish are not as active for the most part (though) one group of Boulder Junction anglers did report a 5 fish day),but, some nice fish have b...

    By John Luthens It seems only an eye blink removed from the waist-deep snow of March on the banks of the Bois Brule River. I peered through snow-draped pines at the cold and ropy mist hanging over the water. I stood on ice shelves that hung suspended and frail over the stained depths of the river. The late-winter sun shone promise onto sand banks...

    OWO Field Reporter Ron Klimcke reports walleye action picking up on the Chippewa Flowage. He caught a nice limit this afternoon but released this 23 ¼ inch fish taken on a Jig and sucker minnow.
  • 10/29/2014 11:00:00 AM
    We have had some great fall weather and some great area fishing to go with it. As I said in past weeks reports I'm doing mostly Musky trips right now and the bigger fish are starting to feed heavy. Clients are doing best in my boat on Suckers and Quick Set rigs but we are still getting a few fish casting. Jakes, Grandmas and larger rubber baits are...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler Trout season is closed but it was a very productive year.  Streams are at normal water level and getting ready for the trapping season.  The backwaters of the Wisconsin River are providing some action.  With the change in water temperature the bluegills are biting on wax worms near the weed edges.  I advi...

    Steve Suman Beautiful late fall weather continued through the weekend, but the forecast is calling for a noticeable change, including cooler highs and lows, as well as rain and “other” showers. “Quiet Lakes fishing continues to provide good to excellent opportunities,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “Muskies are in ...

    Heavy into a typical fall pattern now. Cold mornings, mild days, some wind, some clouds. Also, fewer anglers on the water.Musky: Very Good- Good. Not as hot as last week, but still nice fish in the nets. While it's typical for anglers to get the best action on suckers at this time (and they have by a 60/40 split) jerks, gliders and twitch baits hav...

    It was a good week of Fall Fishing in the Phillips area this week as reports of good Crappie and Walleye action poured in. Musky action was also good, Water temps are in the mid to upper 40's on most area lakes and the fish are starting to move deep and put the feed bag on. Ross's Sport Shop Guide Boats have been finding Walleye and Crappies in th...

    Steve Suman IF the forecast holds true, we should see a mild and comfortable week in the North Woods, with few chances of rain and sunshine on and off through next weekend! “Chippewa Flowage muskies are moving into their fall locations,” says guide Dave Dorazio at Outdoor Creations. “There are still some fis...

    The time is now for those fishing for Musky! Water temps have dropped into the upper 40's to low 50's. Most small to mid sized lakes have turned quickly thanks to overnight temps into the upper 20's. Mid fall patterns are here.Musky: Very Good- Excellent Hard to believe the rating is so high but great musky action has turned on. Multi fish days, eq...

    Fishing has been great the last week in the Phillips Area, I have been mostly doing Musky trips this time of the year, Last week we put 8 of the 9 Veterans that attended the Wisconsin Veterans Fishing Camp on Musky with the Vets combining to catch 14 total Musky. On most of the days on the water this week we have had multiple Musky in the b...

    Steve Suman Relatively mild temperatures continue through this week, though they come with a few chances for precipitation. If nothing else, at least this week, for the time being, none of the precipitation in the forecast starts with an “s”! “With the below normal temperatures and couple inches of snow,” says guide Dave D...
  • 10/15/2014 8:10:00 AM
    The lake appears to be starting to turnover.  The water temperature has been right around 57-59 degrees.  As the fall moves on, the bigger fish will put on their feedbags and the biggest fish of the year will be available for catching. Walleye fishing has been very good.  I’ve been averaging 10-12 fish per day.  I’m...
  • 10/15/2014 8:10:00 AM
    The fall fishing patterns have started to materialize.  The smallmouth bass and the perch are starting to bite.  The water temperature has been in the upper 50’s and I don’t believe the lake has turned over yet, but it should occur in the next week or so. Smallmouth bass fishing has been good.  They have been both in the...

    Well that gorgeous last weekend of September seems long ago... as the first weekend of October brought cold, wind and rain. Early morning temps in the low 30's barely hit 39-40 deg. for highs, lake temps fell from upper 50's /low 60's to lower to mid 50's. If there was a light to the cold weekend, its for those waiting for the musky/sucker bite to ...

    Water temps have fallen to 48 to 52 degrees on most area lakes and the fish are starting to bite very well, I have been doing mostly Musky trips and the action is good, we are having a lot of luck with lures like Suicks, and Jakes. A lot of our fish are also coming on suckers and quick set rigs. Crappie action has picked up again...

    Long- time friend Bill Radek and his son Jeff visited Jim Ellis and brothers at the cabin in Vilas County last week and had moderate fishing success despite turn-over slowing things down from recent weeks.  This 19-inch walleye was caught by Jeff Radek on Alder Lake. If you’re questioning the size of the fish, let’s give it some...
