    If your venturing out on the lakes, make sure that you know where you are going if traveling with any wheeled vehicle. The heavy snow cover and pockets of slush have made it almost impossible for anything but foot and snowmobile travel. Hopefully warmer temps in the forecast will settle the snow down a little on the lakes and make travel a ...

    Steve Suman The forecast predicts more snow, cold, and wind, though with some slight improvement later in the week. Snowmobilers should take note: Riders report trail conditions across northwest Wisconsin are the best in years. “This will be a winter to remember,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “with wind chill advisor...

    Lots of snow in Central Wisconsin is making for difficult travel on area lakes.  But for the anglers still willing and able to get out the bite has been good for big walleyes, nice crappies, some dandy catfish, and a few nice perch and pike. The best action has been early and late in the day on all species except the pike which have b...

    Steve Suman The Hayward area enjoyed another short-lived break from the extreme cold Sunday as temperatures neared 30 degrees. However, this week’s forecast predicts single digit highs and lows dropping to double-digit subzero some nights. Pat at Happy Hooker says high and low pressure systems are making ice fishing a little confu...

    A combination of moon phase and weather conditions made for some slow fishing again this week, Fish are still being caught but the bite is slow and light. Ice conditions are making it pretty tough to get around as well, with all the cold weather there is plenty of ice but there is also a lot of snow piled on it and the weight of the snow is...
  • 1/22/2014 12:10:00 PM
    The area lakes are covered in snow. Deep snow to say the least. If you are venturing out off the beaten path, make sure to have a buddy on speed dial with a tow strap. Even full sized trucks are getting stuck with the depth of snow covering ice on the lakes. It seems like the fish are in the mid winter lull right now. They are able to be caught bu...
  • 1/22/2014 11:55:00 AM
    With the more seasonal and consistent weather this past week, ice thickness has been holding in the 15” to 17” range on most lakes across the Northwoods.  However, there is about 8 to 12 inches of snow on top of the ice and this has made vehicle travel rather tough in undisturbed areas.  Most ice traffic is sticki...

    The Butternut and Schnurs lake association held their annual fisheree this past Saturday. The weather was great and so was the turn out. The walleye action was good in the early morning and then late in the afternoon. Pike activity was good throughout the day. Walleyes were taken off the gravel bars in 6- 14 feet of water. The pike were locating of...

    By Jim Weix Hunting season is over and the endless gray cold days just keep dragging on. Looking for a change of scenery? Maybe it is time for a fishing trip and I’m not talking about standing on the ice. Instead of insulated boots, I’m thinking sunshine and flip flops. Forget your deer hunting outfit and wear shorts and a T-s...

    It was a great weekend to be outdoors with the warm temps, but the fish didn't cooperate quite as well as the weather. Fishermen were still able to catch fish but like most times the high pressure system bite was a tough one. We did have some good reports of Northern Pike action, Look for the pike near the shallow weedy...

    The brutally cold weather of the past week has really put a damper on both angling pressure and fish activity.  Sub-zero high temperatures and windy conditions have kept most anglers off of the ice, with a few of the coldest days seeing virtually no fishing activity on many lakes.  Some diehard panfish and walleye anglers did make...

    By Wayne Morgenthaler The weather has been nice and cold for making good ice.  The fish have been biting in most of the backwaters from Lone Rock to Boscobel.  Just make sure you have at least wax worms and red worms.  For some reason certain lakes one bait works better than others.  Small jigs of about any color seems ...
