Fishing Report for 5-1-17

Saturday is the opener for us here in northwest Wisconsin. I’m looking forward to another fantastic fishing season! Ice out was early April this year, so walleyes should be all finish spawning by the weekend. Crappies have been moving shallow already and some nice catches have been reported. The forecast for the opener looks good with temps in the low 60’s. I’d like to wish everyone a safe and successful fishing season.

This has been a great fall for muskie fishing so far. we’ve caught lots of nice fish. Right now the best bait is live suckers. The Clip-N-Go quick strike rig has been the go to rig for me, this rig teamed up with 14 to 18 inch suckers has been dynamite on fall muskies. Depending on the day the fish are hanging out anywhere from 8 to 24 feet of water.
Good luck and good fishing,

I’ve been focusing on muskies exclusively since Labor Day, and we’ve been doing pretty good on size and numbers of fish. We caught a 48 incher the other day. Most outings we have had more multiple fish days than not. Bucktails, top waters, jerk baits and live suckers are all catching muskies. This is shaping up to be a great fall.
Good luck and good fishing,

Fishing has been very good around here lately. Nice sized muskies are hitting bucktails, early and late in the day have been best. Trolling crank baits has worked well for a mixed bag of pike, walleyes and bass. Jigging has produced some nice panfish along with the occasional walleye.
Good luck and good fishing,

We’ve been fishing some of everything here lately, adding to the fun of summer!
Walleyes have slowed down just bait from a real nice early summer bite. They are still catchable on jigs and leeches or trolling crank baits.
Smallmouth Bass are going real good. Lots of nice fish have come into my net the past two weeks. Mornings have been best.
Muskies are hitting buck tails and top waters in the evenings. covering water to locate fish during the day and coming back on them late is working.

Good luck and good fishing,

Walleye fishing has been good. We are catching nice numbers of good fish on most lakes we fish. Leeches are the best bait right now too.

Good luck and good fishing,

We’ve been having a great time fishing for crappies lately. Most lakes in our area have crappies up shallow and bitting well. Bobbers and small soft plastics are catching lots of fish. We also have had a nice number of jumbo perch show up as well. Looking forward to the musky season starting this weekend.

Good luck and good fishing,

Fishing Report for 5-4-15

Opening day went well for us on Saturday, we had a blast fishing for walleyes on a lake near Hayward.  The bite was good in 6 to 10 feet of water in new cabbage weeds.  Our best luck came on jigs and fatheads or walleye suckers.  Most fish appeared to be post spawn, size was good at 16 to 20 inches.

Good Luck and Good Fishing,

Jim Stroede

Ice fishing is about done around here for the season. We got out and caught a fair amount of bluegills and crappies this winter. Now the open water season is just ahead, I’m really looking forward to getting the new Ranger 175t out and catch some crappies.

Ice fishing is in full swing here, ice thickness is running around 10 to 18 inches on most lakes. Walleyes have been bitting real good late in the day, shiners or walleye suckers under tip ups are working very well. I haven’t heard much about panfish yet, they should start going good soon.

Good luck and good fishing
