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 ...

    Recent ice conditions in and around the central Wisconsin area are not good, most area lakes are wide open and the ones with remaining ice are unsafe.  If you travel further north you will find lakes with decent ice anywhere from 8 to 14 inches.  We are now looking at lakes in the Minocqua area and north of that.  But be careful this...

    Spring like conditions on the lake.  Check with the local bait shops before going out on the ice.  Call River Rock, 715-682-3232, Call Angler's All, 715-682-5754, for an update on the conditions. The ice is gone beyond Houghton Point.   Due to open water in some areas, it is strongly encouraged that anglers call the bait shops...

    Steve Suman Mild, wet, and windy weather that started the week will make way for colder temperatures and even some sunshine by mid-week and into the weekend. Along with the cooler temperatures come the chances of snow, though at this time there is no mention of accumulation. However... forecasts are always subject to change – quickly! While...

    The first of March is here and it is “In like a lion” with snow and wind, and blustery conditions. But hopefully that means out like a lamb, as the saying goes.  Ice conditions are deteriorating quickly across the state with a lot of open water in areas especially the flowages and river systems.  A few guys are trying their lu...

    Winter came back!  A week after the balmy 50’s were here, temps dropped back into the teens and 20’s.  Snow and wind made it feel even colder.  Wind had the most limiting effect on anglers, especially now that most have removed their permanent shacks.Despite the conditions, some surprisingly good reports came from the hea...

    With the milder temperature it feels like spring is in the air at Horicon Marsh!  Geese and cranes are starting mating rituals, the ice is breaking up and the sound of life is upon the marsh.  Make sure to visit here to learn about all of the upcoming events this March.  A Next Box Seminar will help you understand how to pl...

    February 27, 2017 Steve Suman Weather conditions leading up to this past weekend were far from conducive to winter recreational activities, culminating with cancellation of the 44th annual American Birkebeiner. However, the resulting new, non-weather-dependent BirkieFest celebration drew more than 10,000 skiers and spectators to pa...

    Big week for crappies and bluegills plus some nice walleyes and northern pike.  Ice conditions are very good with 14 to 20 inches of good ice on most area lakes but still use caution when you are near areas with current. Travel conditions are very good with little to no snow on the lakes either.  This weekend may change things though with...

    Well a lot of things have changed in the past week.  Ice conditions have upgraded and travel on area lakes has improved drastically. Most lakes have anywhere from 14 to 18 inches of ice with little snow cover which makes for very good travel conditions. We have had consistent action on both walleyes and pike with some good numbers but even ...

    Our crew was out checking water clarity on Lake Winnebago yesterday and as anticipated clarity has changed since our last readings on January 30.  The average readings have dropped about a foot over the last week and a half (average 9.4' yesterday compared to 10.3' on January 30), but there appears ...

    I am going to start this week’s report off with a warning.  Stay of the ice with your vehicles!!!  We have seen several vehicles plunge through the ice in the past few weeks and the ice is just not that safe this year. Not our vehicles but other anglers that took chances that they shouldn’t have!  Average ice thicknesses...

    2/9/2017- Reported by AAA Sports     Here's what's biting! This past weekend was windy and cold, but if you were persistent, you'd catch fish. The Spooner Lions club contest on Spooner had over 200 people and lots of fish were caught. We sold a record breaking amount of suckers and shiners. Everyday peo...

    Unfortunately, fishing didn’t quite match the optimistic forecast of last week’s prognosticator.  Most reports were of less action, though a few bright spots on the panfish front did come in.Yellow Perch:  Good-Fair – Better bites came from anglers fishing shallow lakes with healthy weeds.  Jigs shaped like small bl...

    January 30, 2017 Steve Suman   Winter temperatures return to the North Woods, along with some snow early in the week to please snowmobilers and skiers. Ice anglers have enjoyed generally good fishing conditions, though with some slush and slop during the mild periods. The forecast predicts sunny, clear, and cold from Wednesday into the week...

    Good news, the heavy accumulations off snow we recently received have all but about vanished on area lakes.  The recent warm snap has substantially dropped the snow cover thus leaving us with a mess of slush and a lot of water on top of the ice.  Despite the conditions the fishing has been really good for all species.  Ice thickness ...

    Temps hovering in the low to mid 30’s and short bouts of rain for the past five days have pushed snow down on the lakes but have made things slushy.  Fishing improved for the most part as we got some clouds and a drop in the barometer (a little too low Friday causing the bite to slow).Yellow Perch:  Good-Very good – ...

    Steve Suman  North Wood’s temperatures return to more normal readings this week, though with highs still in the 20s (and that is above zero!) There are chances of precipitation nearly every day, but as snow rather than rain after the first of the week.  “There were a lot of anglers out last week,” says Pat at...
