September 10, 2019

Early September has not been the best for anglers of certain species so far.  Walleye and panfish anglers have struggles.  Bass fishing has been just so-so, Musky and Pike anglers are reporting good action though, lucky to have so many options!  When one doesn’t work o...

Summer vacation time is over, the next two months are for anglers!

Water temps for Labor Day a bit low (63-65 degrees avg).

Certain weeds dying back, but where good green narrow leaf cabbage and brown broad leaf cabbage found, so are fish.  A very nice weather weekend fo...

The cool down of late August has started!  Lake temps have fallen from mid-70’s to upper 60-70 degree marks.  Weeds are starting to pale up noticeable as they die back, marking the end of their growing season.  Fish patterns are changing as they usually do this time of...

Warm days, some cool nights, a few storms here and there…sort of typical mid-August.  Haven’t seen nights cold enough to turn a few sugar maples, but it will be here soon.

Largemouth Bass:  Very Good-Good – Lots of action relating to cabbage flats of 8-12’.  Wacky wormi...

Mid-August can be the start of a challenge for anglers.  Cool nights and the end of the growing season for some aquatic plants can cause a shift in location and feeding habits for some species.  As of now, there hasn’t been a drastic change but a cooling trend is somet...

Fishing in early August remains similar to most of July, a slight slow down for a few species, but an up tick for others.  A few fronts have made for some fish and dodge times on the water, but overall things good.

Largemouth Bass:  Very Good-Good – Can’t miss using Wac...

Summer patterns holding up well. Surface temps remaining consistent at 74-77 degree average.  Highs and lows most days not affecting temps yet.  Biggest effects are sunny days vs. cloudy.

Largemouth Bass:  Very Good – Daytime working cabbage flats of 8-12’.  Wacky...

Last week’s hot weather finally broke thanks to some storms.  The heat helped some, while others on the water struggled to find certain species.

Crappie:  Very Good – Staging in the upper portions of tall cabbage.  Small jigs (Bunny Butts, Gapen Freshwater Shrimp, VMC B...

Big heat for the Northwoods this week.  Temps forecasted in the high 80’s to low 90’s by weeks end.

Water temps climbing and early/late trips best, as well as moving out into deeper water for better action.

Largemouth Bass:  Very Good – Top-water evening action hot with...

July 9, 2019

Good, stable summer weather has allowed for some typical summer patterns to develop.  Late bug hatches are finishing up (some I thought were already done, sorry) and high water and high water temps are the norm for right now.

Largemouth Bass:  Very Good – A variety of t...
