Finally a true cold snap to help make some safe ice!  Nothing has changed much fishing wise since last week nor will anglers see any true heavy changes in the next couple of weeks other than better ice conditions.  While most of the smaller lakes are walkable and even able to support smaller atvs, the […]

The small lakes are finally frozen over for the most part.  The ice is not consistent or what I would consider safe.  In a week or so, that should be a different story.  However, with a little scouting and some common sense, some decent ice for walking on and some active fish through the ice […]

As the small shallow lakes freeze I’m leaning towards the big lakes in the Boat. Ice under 5” is not a good idea. If your in a Boat concentrate on early ice locations and presentations. Just don’t tell the fish you are in a Boat. Lol. Fish the weed lines for walleyes and suspended panfish. […]

Fishing remains good if you can handle the weather. We’ve been catching huge bluegills and crappies in the 15-20 ft range with plastics or jig and Minnow combos.

Walleyes are going strong on rainbow chubs and even night crawlers. 3/8 oz glow in the dark jigs tipped with a minnow is working just about everywhere.  Concentrate on the 13-15 ft depths along the shorelines and or out in front of any current area like a river or creek coming in.  Large schools of […]

Wow, what a gorgeous week to be in the North woods! Leaves are colorful and falling quickly and so is the water temperatures around the area.  Look for water temps to be in the upper 40’s up to mid 50’s.  This is the sweet spot folks for fantastic fall fishing for everything from pan fish […]

Hello everyone, Fall fishing is here!  Between the awesome grouse hunting and fishing throughout the area, I’m not sure what to do.  I do know that when I’m catching crappies bigger than a bucket I’m in 30 ft of water fishing an 1/8 oz jig tipped with a Berkley Gulp white 2” grub.  And occasionally, […]
