    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...
