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

Opened the season fishing for walleyes on the Chippewa Flowage.  We found lots of walleyes willing to snap up our jig and minnows.  Most of our fish were male walleyes that were still full of milt from the on going spawning process.  We released all of our fish, mostly because we know spring crappie fishing is right around the corner and we love those crappies!  Water temps on the Chip were 41.

Good Luck and good fishing,

Fishing Report for 10-27-13

Water temps have been dropping steadily on area waters. On the lakes I’ve been fishing we’re seeing 42 to 45 degrees. Muskies are bitting well most days, we got four today. Suckers are getting hit but the bites are light and they don’t always swim off with the sucker, but rather they just sort of hang around holding on to it. Because of this we’re missing on quite a few hook sets. Vertical jigging is working good, we three out of four today jigging. Let’s hope the weather holds and we can fish into late November this year.
Good luck and good fishing,

Musky fishing remains good in the area. We’ve been catching some nice fish in my boat, most fish are 34 to 44 inchers. Jerkbaits, minnowbaits, and suckers are all catching muskies right now. Water temps have fallen below 60 into the upper 50’s on the lakes I’ve been fishing.
Good luck and good fishing,

Musky fishing has been pretty good here lately. We’re boating lots of fish and getting lots of chances at them too. Bucktails, jerkbaits and live suckers have all boat fish this past week. Fall colors are beginning to start around here. Cooler nights have only dropped water temps into the low 60’s, a little cooler and the sucker bite will improve.
Good luck and good fishing,

I’ve been fishing muskies exclusively the past ten days. Fishing has been good too. We’ve boated fourteen muskies during this stretch, most of them have run in that 36″ to 42″ range. A wide variety of baits have been producing, bucktails, Twitchbaits, jerkbaits, topwaters and live bait have all caught fish recently.
We’ve been fishing weeds mostly but we did pull a few fish out of rocks too. Water temps are in the low 70’s still.
Good luck and good fishing,

Fishing Report for 8-32-13

Hot weather has made for tough fishing here. Today we fished muskies on the Chippewa Flowage with very tough conditions and not much in the way of results. Yesterday we boated about twelve walleyes, lots of smallmouth, some largemouth, and many , many bluegills and perch fishing a big clear lake. Jigs and live bait in 17 to 25 feet of water seemed to work best. Water temps at 80 today on the Flowage, a nice cool down is forecasted for this week though.
Good luck and good fishing,
