    Rising water temps have seemed to stall the fish bite a little, Customers were still reporting catching a good number of fish the last week but they did comment that the bite was a tough one. Ross's Sport Shop Guides were still putting clients on Musky, I had the pleasure to take a number of clients out the last week and we had at least one f...

    Steve Suman It was a good run while it lasted, but forecasts predict lower highs, lower lows, and chances for rain nearly every day this week (well, of course – it is Muskies, Inc. tournament weekend!) “Muskies are on shallow weedlines and deep drop-offs,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “hitting bucktails, plasti...

    Fishing on Delavan continues to be difficult compared to normal action this time of year.  The constant high pressure have the fish in a lull pattern.  There isn’t any rhyme or reason for the fish locations.  If you can find an active school, you can catch a few, but if you don’t locate one it’s a real struggle.&nbs...

    Even though this should be some of the best times to fish Lake Geneva, the water temperatures have not been consistent enough to get the fish in their normal early fall patterns.  The fishing has been overall very slow. Smallmouth bass action has been very difficult.   I’ve been working the fish in the 20-25 foot depth range.&...

    Well after enduring some brutal wind on Friday and Sunday...not to nice on Saturday either, looks like a gorgeous week of weather ahead. Lows only in the low 50's, highs in the 70's and lots of color to look at! Smallmouth Bass: Good-Very good.

    Delavan Lake remains pretty spotty.  The best bite on the lake remains the bluegills.  The smallmouth are starting to heat up though.  The boat traffic on the lake is almost non-existent. Bluegill fishing has been very good in the 13-15 ft depth range or suspended  the main lake basin 15 ft down in 40 ft of water.  The sus...

    Overall the fishing on Lake Geneva has been difficult.  The typical patterns on the lake are not available which makes the fish very scattered and hard to catch.  When you do get on the game fish, they are typically less than 15 inches. The smallmouth bass are in 15-22 ft of water.  They can be caught on lindy rigged nightcrawlers o...

    Central Wisconsin was the place to be if you were headed into the outdoors last week.  With that said it looks as though things are shaping up for another banner fall season on the water and in the woods.  Hunters had good success in the woods with the opener of the 2014 deer archery season. A few nice deer were taken like the ni...

    A very cold first half of September has lake temps dropping quickly from averages of 71-73 degrees just two weeks ago to surface temps plummeting to the 57-59 degree average.  Certain species are still active, while fishing for some others has nearly come to a complete halt. Crappies:  Fair-Good (and improving).  Big slabs of 12-14"...

    Delavan Lake is in a transition period from the summer pattern to the fall pattern.  Fishing has been slow due to the tremendous cold front that hit last week.  I’ve gone from double digit catches of game fish down to single digit and have been seeing only the smaller fish.  With some stable weather fishing will improve. The b...

    Due to the severe cold fronts this past week, fishing is pretty slow.  The best bite on the lake has been the bluegills in 15-20 ft of water.  The smallmouth bass and largemouth bass remain scattered throughout the water column and a consistent pattern is non-existent right now. Bluegill fishing has been average in 15-20 ft of water.&nbs...

    Due to the cool weather, fishing on Geneva has remained relatively slow.  Most of the action has been coming in shallow waters, 6-10 ft deep.  Largemouth bass have been biting in Geneva Bay, Trinkes and Abbey Harbor.  Most of the fish are coming in and around the boats.  Use a split shot rig nightcrawler or an All Terrain Stik ...
