Now it starts.  Too much to keep up with in Wisconsin, and that is one nice problem for an outdoorsman. OWO Columnist Wayne Morgenthaler and his son Neal spelled double trouble for two Richland County gobblers after four days of not filling tags. We put the May-June issue of On Wisconsin Outdoors to bed last week with 100,000 copies being distributed statewide. Look for your copy at any Kwik Trip statewide…that’s 400 stores ...

    Wow how things can change… This past week we have seen a drastic drop in the water temperatures and the bite has really changed as far as technique over the past couple of days.  The big deer are on the move and plenty of beautiful bucks have been taken, myself included. With water temperatures now in the upper 30 degree range we hav...

    11/6/17- Reported by AAA Sports Well the weekend started out with some serious Muskie fishing people coming in. Tthey were dressed for the arctic! Not sure how well they did,  but they ordered more suckers for this weekend. Trapping season is underway: Beaver, mink, muskrat, raccoons, fox  and coyote. We've taken a lot of deer ...

    Lenny Young and Pete Limberatos hit the whitebass right during a recent trip to the Winnebago Chain. According to Young, the two used flies and minnows on ultralight.  “We caught many doubles using a bare fly 2 feet  out and a gold hook with a minnow at 4 feet out from a triple swivel and 18 inches of line with three-quarter ounce...

    Dropping water temperatures and an increase in water flow have made for a perfect combination for excellent fall fishing in the central Wisconsin area.  The fish are putting on the fall feedbag and it is only going to get better as we move forward.  We have had a great week of catching nice muskies, walleyes, crappies and even a few big b...

    Luke from Anglers All reports: Fall is definitely here. We have had a beautiful autumn week in the Chequamegon Bay Area.  Local rivers are coming down. There should also be some good mudlines forming up out in the lake for those looking to troll.  Fishing the edges of those mudlines can be very productive. Some of the best trolling o...
  • 10/20/2017 8:50:00 AM
    Looking at the forecast for this week, we can expect a sunny and dry week. Temperatures during the day will be in the high 50’s, but by the weekend, we will see daytime temperatures in the 70’s. The colors have reached their full peak, and with this week’s sunny forecast, now is an excellent time to get out and enjoy the weather! ...
  • 10/20/2017 8:50:00 AM
    Some real fall weather reached the Northwoods!  Cold nights, some wind, rain, as a result – some falling water temps.   Musky:  Good-Very Good – Not a great season for numbers, but some very nice fish.  While suckers have accounted for the majority of fish, artificials, especially jointed cranks (48”) and 8&r...
  • 10/13/2017 2:25:00 PM
    Well a little rain and some cooler temperatures really makes a difference.  The walleye bite is getting better and better by the day as well as the action for muskies really turning on.  Water temperatures have finally fallen to the mid 50 degree range and should continue that downward slope as we head further into fall.  Deer hunt...

    October 9, 2017 Steve Suman   Clear, cool (frost!), and mostly dry weather appears to be in store for the Hayward area this week. The forecasts make only slight mention of rain chances for late in the week and weekend. Get out now and enjoy these mostly mild temperatures while they exist – it will not last forever!   “Wea...
  • 10/10/2017 3:05:00 PM
    Cooler temperatures have definitely sparked the fall fishing.  Water temperatures are finally dropping and action has picked up for all species. Bear hunters are coming into their final week of bear season and hunters are still giving it their best to tag that bruin. The musky action has seen the most dramatic increase with a lot of success...
  • 10/6/2017 7:50:00 AM
    Following a weekend of record highs, temps mellowed out only to be rising by this past weekend.  After todays (10/3) highs of nearly 70 degrees, the next two weeks look to be in the 50’s – 60’s.  Good news for musky anglers. Walleye:  Very Good-Fair  – Early in week Walleye catches were great with lots o...

    Well it is finally over… Summer that is, but by the way Mother Nature is treating us you would never know it.  The past few days we have had the warmest temperatures of the year, and with that the fishing and hunting have felt it too.  We have seen a decrease in activity both on the water and in the woods Bear hunters especial...

    With the exceptionally cool August, September has been exceptionally warm which has caused surface temperature fluctuations of 10-15 degrees.  The fish don’t really know what pattern they should be following!  We have some fall patterns working well but some of the summer patterns are being re-established. Walleye fishing was impro...
  • 9/25/2017 11:05:00 AM
    We have had exceptionally warm weather in the past week so the summer pattern for fishing continues.  Those fish that had already moved to the fall patterns are very confused! Smallmouth bass have been on the main lake points like Black Point, Conference Point and Cedar Point.  They have been in a depth range of 20-25 ft.  They can ...

    What could go wrong? By Wayne Morgenthaler Trout season starts out in May for catch and keep.  This is a wonderful time to fish, as the weeds along the creeks are all knocked down.  Now fast forward to September.  My buddy says let’s go to one of his favorite holes, and we will try to get one of those big browns.  I am a...
  • 9/11/2017 2:35:00 PM
    We are starting a gradual warming trend which should improve the bite over the next week or so.  It’s a bit too early to get into the fall patterns and the summer bite has been slower than average with the cooler temps this warm up will help significantly.       Northern Pike action has been improving. ...
  • 9/11/2017 2:35:00 PM
    As the water has been cooling the fishing action has been improving almost daily.  The fish that weren’t biting last week are starting to feed.  The best bite on the lake remains smallmouth bass and rock bass. Smallmouth bass are being caught in 22-25 ft of water.  They are on deep water structure.  The best bait has been...
  • 9/8/2017 11:00:00 AM
    Cooler than normal temperatures combined with rain have hit us hard this past week, dropping water temperatures drastically. In addition to the cool temperatures we have had a full a moon phase going on.  The cooler temperatures and full moon have done wonders to the fishing but have really hurt the hunters.  With that said we have had ve...

    Despite one nice, warm, sunny day – Labor Day Sunday, water temps starting to drop.  Cooling temps a good thing as we get into fall mode. Musky:  Good – Still best on bucktails and big spinner baits.  Seven inch twitch baits, small jerks and top-water still effective.  Action down from last week, but still good...
  • 9/8/2017 10:15:00 AM
    Summers over….  We are now entering the beginning stages of what I consider the best time of the year.  Fall…  Musky fishing heats up, deer and bear season are just about under way, guys have already started goose hunting and a whole lot more is coming up in the near future.  Water temperatures on the river syst...

    Fishing on Delavan remains decent.  It’s not as good as a few weeks ago, but that’s to be expected with the cool temps and unstable weather.  As the lake continues to cool, the fish will transition from summer to fall patterns. Crappie fishing has been pretty good.  The fish are in the weeds in 13-14 ft of water.  T...
  • 9/8/2017 9:40:00 AM
    The cool August days have now turned into cool September days.  Fishing on Geneva has been a bit more challenging than normal.  Some days the fishing patterns are easily identified but with any weather or wind change the bite shuts down. Largemouth bass are in substantially more shallow water than is typical for this time of year.  ...
