    ~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter from Anglers All, (715)-682-5754, http://www.anglersallwisconsin.comReports: This time of year is a waiting game for the ice to freeze over and be safe enough to ice fish. There have been a few anglers ice fishing on the Inland Lakes but the new snow cover has made travel on the ice tough and conditions slushy. &...

    Fantastic start to the ice season!  Most lakes averaging 4-6”.  Fish active and biting.  Earliest fishable ice in the past few years.  Not everyone ready for it, but, those that are have been taking advantage of some great early ice fishing. Walleye:  Excellent.  Best reports at dusk and just after dark.  T...

    The nine day gun deer hunt is finished. Cold temperatures froze over the area lakes and people are starting to venture onto the ice in search of fish. Make sure to use extreme caution right now. One area can have good ice, while other areas might be thinner. One positive note for this year, is we had real cold temps to make good ice before we got t...

    With negative and single digit night time temps we have a solid 3 to 8 inches of ice on most Phillips area lakes with reports of limited ATV travel on some lakes, As with all ICE travel please take caution as ice thickness can change. Most of the early ice anglers are headed to the shallow areas of the lake for evening walleye or all day...

    Steve Suman Opening weekend of deer season brought cold temperatures and stiff winds to the North Woods. The Packer-Viking game Sunday afternoon provided some hunters an ‘excuse’ to exit the woods early in the day, though tie games offer little satisfaction and many hunters might have wished they had endured the day in the tree stand. ...

    ~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter from Anglers All, (715)-682-5754, http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com Reports: The winds have been too high and cold to encourage any anglers to try their hand at fishing the big lake. This time of year is a waiting game for the ice to freeze over and be safe enough to ice fish. The Inlands are usually the first waters...
  • 11/27/2013 8:35:00 PM
    Another open water fishing season is in the books for most area lakes. There still is some open water opportunity left on parts of the Flambeau and Elk rivers. Some real nice walleye are caught below the dams at this time of year for those of you that don't want to give up the open water rod and reel yet. A lot of ice fishing reports are comi...

    ~ Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter from Anglers All, (715)-682-5754, http://www.anglersallwisconsin.comReports: Trolling for Trout and Salmon is still good, if you can get out on the Lake. The Streams closed on November 15th. If you aren’t a deer hunter and you are looking for something to do…come to the Chequamegon Bay and catch some...

    With a lot of focus on the remaining early archery season and upcoming deer gun season, most sportsman have put fishing on the back burner.  Right now however can be the best time of the year to catch the largest musky of your life as well as catching plenty of walleyes and some big ones too.   The fishing in Central Wiscons...
  • 11/21/2013 10:45:00 AM
    It was looking like we would be on the ice for deer season for the first time in many years but warm temps and heavy rain cleared the local lakes of ice. We did have a couple of Ice Fishermen early last week as some of the bays on some local lakes were froze up for a few days and had about 3" of ice on them. The anglers head...

    Steve Suman Following a mild, wet, and windy weekend, some weather changes are in store and it appears likely deer hunters will have some snow on the ground for this weekend’s gun deer season opener. “As we approach Thanksgiving,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “many anglers are now thinking about other outdoor activities,...

    Our own little “forecaster” the pond behind our shop, froze last week, yet reopened with the warmer temps, wind and rain of the weekend.  Well, it’s on its way bay to locking up (about 40% covered as of 11/18). Surface temps on area lakes range from 35-40 degrees.  Some lakes as of Saturday were inaccessible due to ice ...

    November Wind By John Luthens  Leaves fell like heavy rain from the oak tree in my yard.  They swirled and flew horizontal in the November wind.  They warned me off the water, but I was restless.  There would be a storm riding the wind in from the northwest.  It was hard to tell if it would be rain or snow.  Novembe...

    Most of the fishermen have winterized their boats and put them away for the year but there are still a few die hard fishermen out there on the water. The fishermen that are still out there are mostly Walleye and Musky fishermen, The walleye are hitting very well, on deeper waters like the Phillips Chain look for them in 20 to 30 foot of water stac...

    Steve Suman Our North Wood’s week starts clear and cold, with a welcome warming bump for the weekend. So say the forecasters... “This is the time for serious muskie hunters and walleye anglers,” says Pat at Happy Hooker. “Water temperatures are in the upper 30s to lower 40s on many lakes, and it is a great time to be ...

    Fishing Guide Roger LaPenter from Anglers All, (715)-682-5754, http://www.anglersallwisconsin.com Reports: Trolling for Trout and Salmon is still good. Stream fishing is still good with Trout and Salmon biting, but keep in mind that the streams are only open until November 15th. Anglers that haven’t put their boats away or Anglers t...

    The 2013 open water season is winding down and there may only be a few weeks left to get out on area waters. Water Temps are hanging in the 38 to 44 degree range depending on what body of water your on. Fall fishing hasn't been a disappointment as most anglers are reporting good catches. The Walleye action has really picked up and some of ...
  • 11/7/2013 2:50:00 PM
    Fishing has been slow Water has been cooling down and the bass fishing has been slow.  We managed to find the fish in the backwaters on the east side of the lake in the afternoon.  The best bait was Lethal Weapons with blue brown plastic tube attached.  Northerns are biting on spinners but tough to locate.  Panfish are ...
  • 11/7/2013 2:45:00 PM
    Water temps are really dropping now. The fish are looking to follow the same pattern.  Walleyes are hitting the deeper water and will stay there, or head deeper until the ice covers the lakes. Not every walleye will be deep, but the majority of your fish will be. Best ways to catch these walleye are jig and minnow fishing vertically, or dragg...
  • 11/7/2013 2:45:00 PM
    With a lot of focus on deer hunting right now many anglers have taken to the woods instead of being on the water.  With that said the few anglers that are hitting the water are doing very well on both muskies and walleyes.  This is the best time of the year for that trophy of a lifetime and the die-hards that are out on the water...

    Steve Suman The North Wood’s weekend was a wet and windy one, and the forecast for this week predicts rain and/or snow nearly every day (with way too many mentions of snow for early November!) “Most area lakes have turned over or are in process of turning,” says Pat at Happy Hooker, “and water temperatures a...
  • 11/7/2013 2:25:00 PM
    Water temps have dropped since last report, now ranging from 36-42 degrees.  The musky action has picked up from slow start.   Many muskies caught in the last few days and while artificial lures may be bringing them in, most of the catches have been on suckers.  .  Musky Suckers have not been an issue to get in our area as ...
  • 10/31/2013 12:50:00 PM
    The fall musky bite is right now and big fish are being caught by anglers running large suckers run under bobbers and by guys throwing large jerkbaits like Suicks and Mantas.  Most of the action is in 8 to 14 feet of water but a few fish have been caught suspended over very deep water up to 30 feet deep. Walleyes have been very active...
