Musky bite for the past few days here in Hayward, Wisconsin has been excellent! We put 12 fish in the bag in the last 3 days of fishing including a couple 20 pounders. We've been using suckers on my newly developed quick-strike rigs (which will be available for musky show season) along with Medussas & Bulldawgs.

My client Chris along with his 2 sons Gary & Caleb did an excellent job putting fish in the boat on the Chippewa Flowage! Both Gary & Caleb got their first ever sucker fish! Congrats to the boys!

I have the 1st & 2nd of November (this Saturday & Sunday) open for guide trips if you're looking to get in on a hot bite! Cool

FISHING REPORT October 27, 2014 Steve Suman

Muskie: The muskie bite is very good and getting better! Target weed beds (green if you can find them), breaks, drop-offs, channels, and steep shorelines in 5-22 feet of water. There is a good bite on large suckers on quick-strike rigs – and suckers are available. Other productive baits include Bull Dawgs, big bucktails, and crank, jerk, and twitch baits.

Walleye: Walleye action is good to very good on most lakes. Late afternoon until dark offers the best success. Fish green weeds, rock/gravel bars, mud flats, humps, brush, stumps, and drop-offs in 10-30 feet and deeper. Live bait choices include large walleye suckers, fatheads, and crawlers on jigs, under slip bobbers, or plain hook split-shot rigs. Crankbaits are also productive.

Northern Pike: Northern fishing is good on weeds in 4-18 feet. Best baits include northern suckers, bucktails, minnow baits, crankbaits, spinners, spinnerbaits, and spoons. For trophy pike, go deeper with bigger baits.

Largemouth Bass: Bass anglers report catching some nice largemouth around structure in depths to 12 feet, fishing plastic worms in various configurations, topwaters, spinners, crankbaits, and live bait.

Smallmouth Bass: Smallmouth fishing is very good on the deep, clear lakes. Work weeds, woods, rock humps, hard bottoms, and cribs in 10-22 feet of water with walleye suckers, jigs/minnows, plastics, tubes, X-Raps, and Flicker Shads.

Crappie: Crappie action continues to be good in the usual fall spots – Moore’s Bay, Blueberry Flats, Crane Lake, and Pine Point. Work weed edges, green weeds, wood, cribs, and brush in 12-30 feet with crappie minnows, fatheads, waxies, plastics, Gulp! baits, Tattle-Tails, Mini-Mites, and tube jigs.

Bluegill: Though few people fish for bluegills in late fall, this is a good time to catch big fish. Look for cribs, rock bars, and weedlines in 15 feet and deeper, and check the entire water column, top to bottom, for fish hugging bottom or suspending anywhere in it. Waxies, leaf worms, and small plastics work well. Try small minnows for bigger ‘gills.

Upcoming Events Oct. 25: Seasons opened: Muskrat; Mink. Nov. 1: Wild ginseng season closes. Nov. 2: Seasons open (see regs): Beaver trapping; Otter trapping; Non-resident raccoon season. Nov. 3: Woodcock season closes. Nov. 9: Mourning dove season closes. Nov.15: Trout and salmon fishing closes on downstream Lake Superior tributaries (see regs).

Musky bite here in Hayward, WI has been very good for the past number of days. Water Temps are 47-53 depending on what body of water you're fishing. Suckers & bulldawgs are what we've gotten all of our fish on in the past week.

In our last 3 days of fishing we put 11 fish in the boat. 7 were on suckers using my newly developed quick-strike rig (which will be available for musky show season). The other 4 fish were on bulldawgs. Musky's are continuing to move to deeper water. Areas surrounding/leading into deep water have been extremely productive. Baitfish on this type of structure has been the key to finding active fish.

My client Brian and I had a musky double header yesterday with 2 fish in the net at the same time. My other client Hambone got his personal best fish (heavy 46") on Monday. Congrats to Hambone!

If you're looking to get out and chase down some big girls I still have the 29th-31st of October available along with a few days in early to mid November. Cool

FISHING REPORT October 20, 2014 Steve Suman Muskie: Muskie fishing is good to excellent around weeds, weedlines, channel edges, brush, and cribs in depths to 22 feet, though some fish are still holding near shallow cover. Top baits include large suckers on quick-set rigs, bucktails, Bull Dawgs/plastics, and crank, glide, minnow, and jerk baits.

Walleye: Walleye action is fair to good, depending on the day – anglers are catching fish during daytime on overcast days. Look for fish in deeper water (to 30 feet) with walleye suckers and fatheads on jigs and under slip bobbers.

Northern Pike: Northern pike are active on points and weedlines out to about 17 feet of water, with northern suckers, crankbaits, spinners, and spoons the baits of choice. Fish deeper water with bigger baits for trophy pike.

Bass: Bass fishing interest seems to wane with dropping water temperatures and the decrease in shallow weed cover. The fish are still there and eating, however! For largemouth, try plastics such as plastic worms and tubes, crank and stick baits, and live bait. For smallmouth, work mid-depth wood, rock, and cribs with walleyes suckers and crawlers on jigs, drop-shot, and live bait rigs.

Crappie: Crappie anglers continue to have very good success once they locate the fish that are primarily suspending over deeper water cover. Moore’s Bay, Blueberry Flats, and Pine Point are all prime fall destinations. Use crappie minnows, waxies, and Gulp! baits on small jigs or plain hooks fished under slip bobbers.

Bluegill: Bluegill fishing is not a top draw this time of year, but anglers who target ‘gills are catching some good fish. Work rock bars and weedlines in depths to 22 feet with waxies, leaf worms, crawler chunks, and plastics on small jigs or plain hooks, with or without bobbers.

Perch: Perch anglers are catching some nice perch on the deep, clear lakes (Round, Grindstone, LCO), though action is inconsistent. Fish jigs and fatheads in deeper water areas as well as mid-depth mud flats

Awesome smallmouth bite going on everywhere in Hayward. Focusing on deepwater cribs and and rock. 20-35 feet. Suckers and bulky crayfish jigs take the cake for best lures. Musky action has been good as well. Good Luck.

Musky bite here in Hayward, WI continues to be great! Over the past few days we've put a good number of fish in the bag on suckers & bulldawgs. Neckdown areas with bait on them have been holding fish along with some deep water spots.

I guided husband and wife Matt & Vanessa for a part of their honeymoon (3 days on the water) and we put a total of 7 fish in the bag. I was honored to be a part of their marriage celebration and we had a great time on the water together!

We were 3 for 4 on suckers using my newly developed quick-strike rig which will be in stores before next season.

I am booked solid through the 28th of October but do have the 29th-31st available if you're looking to get out and chase some pigs. Cool
