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...

    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...

    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.&...
