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 ...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The rain has muddied some waters, especially the big three trout streams (Pine River, Willow Creek, and Mill Creek).  Small streams are the best and fish at the headwaters.  Best way to fish these small streams is to bring the waders and fish upstream with a gold panther martin size 3.  The Wisconsin River is ...

    ~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter and wife Carolyn from Anglers All, 715/682-5754 (http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com), report the following: This report is about the Ashland side of Chequamegon Bay. Fishing has been very good overall this past week with quite a bit of walleye activity along the Ashland shoreline. People are catching them in the earl...

    The fishing right now continues to be very good overall. Water temps are in the 70's depending on the lake, but the fish are active and it is a great time to be out catching fish.  Finding the walleyes right now seems to be more of a spot on spot situation. They are sitting on certain areas, but when you find them, you should be able to catch...

    Minocqua Area Fishing Report: At least all the wind has kept the mosquitos at bay. Wind has been the biggest hindrance to fishing for most species. Where possible and with proper boat control some of the best walleye fishing of the season came last week, but the wind made it work! Walleye: Excellent to Good. Action slowed some after the full moon....

    Happy Fathers Day!  Fishing on Delavan continues to be very good. The fly hatch of last week has disappeared and the fishing has been improving every day.  The largemouth bass and bluegills are post spawn and are migrating out to the weedlines.  This week, largemouth bass have been in two different locations one is the deep weedline...

    Happy Fathers Day to all you fishing dads out there.  Lake Geneva fishing remains really good.  The summer boat traffic has started however, so plan to be off the lake by about 10:30 a.m. to avoid the waves and chaos, especially on weekends.  I had a 8 hour guide trip planned for Saturday and the boat traffic drove us in after about ...

    Despite cooler temps this week, we seem to be in an early summer mode. Water temps have settled into the mid 60's range. Enough warmth seems to be working its way down to help push some bug hatches as a couple species of dragon flies, some types of midge and what looks like march brown mayflies have hatched. The thing to keep an eye out for is the ...

    By Mike Yurk The sky seemed to touch the water of Chequamegon Bay while a steady light rain dimpled the surface. Doug Hurd of Eagan, Minn., and I were drifting along a swampy shoreline flipping jerk baits into the shallow water. Doug’s boat was sitting in about four feet of water but we were casting to less than a foot. We caught our ...

    Outstanding fishing right now in central Wisconsin for all species.  The muskies are very active and we are seeing some very nice fish coming from shallow weedy areas.  Walleyes continue to be a pleasant catch and along with numbers, we are seeing some nice sized fish as well.  The crappies and bluegill bite is about as goo...

    Steve Suman This week’s temperatures looks to be more seasonal, with highs in the upper 70s and nighttime lows in the 40s and 50s ... and of course, the ever-present (but mostly low!) chances for rain and thunderstorms. “Inconsistent weather is always tough on fishing success,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “and we had so...
  • 6/12/2014 10:45:00 AM
    Lake Geneva fishing has been really good overall.  It’s a great time to take young kids fishing as the rock bass bite is almost constant.  Both the largemouth and smallmouth bass are active as well.  With the cooler than normal water temperatures, the pleasure boat traffic is still relatively light as well. Walleye fishing rem...
  • 6/12/2014 10:45:00 AM
    This past week started fast and was excellent but by the end of the week, we had another lake fly hatch that slowed the bite immensely.  That should dissipate by the early part of next week and then it will be back to good fishing. Walleye fishing has started to pick up.  Night anglers and even day time fishermen have been catching multi...

    Ted Poulos has a travel trailer in Triangle Farms in Fremont, Wisconsin and went fishing on the Wolf River on Memorial Day weekend.

    ASHLAND, Wis. – Lake Superior in summer means plenty of smallmouth bass in Chequamegon Bay.  The smallmouth bass fishing season runs from mid-May through late October, the latter considered to be “trophy month” for “smallies.” The 12-mile-long bay’s rock piles and breakwater structures make for ...

    Spring was short!Jumped right from late ice out to summer time temps in a matter of 2 1/2 weeks. Lake surface temps shot through the 60's on smaller lakes and flowages right into the mid 70's. Larger lakes recording temps of 64-69 deg. Recent rains bring temps down some,but warm temps of the past week have accelerated spawning of Crappies, Mus...

    This week, the North Woods should see cooler, more seasonal temperatures, along with a few rain showers. Mosquitoes and ticks are abundant this spring – remember to bring bug repellent! “Fishing season and is off to a good start,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “with anglers concentrating on shallow water. “Fish musk...

    The Weed Bite has Started Hi Folks – The weed bite has started on the walleye front.  We have seen spectacular fishing this past week and I see no reason for things to slow down in the near future. Water temps have ranged from 68 to 77 degrees and it was a very quick warm-up. This had little to no effect on the walleye activity.  W...
