“NO FISH, NO PAY, GUARANTEED”. (excluding musky)

09-22-2017.
Heading out tomorrow afternoon on my home lake, Van Vliet, for a  day of Perch fishing.         We got in a few hours of good fishing before the rain came down.  This group of guys had a ball catching a few dozen Crappie from a brush pile. Also some fish were caught along a drop off. Minnows were best. About 10 ft deep was also best.  Thanks guys you were great. 

The whole family is coming up for a family reunion next week and laughing about  "The Big Surprise."   

Remember a prayer, for all of our Guiding Brothers and Guiding Sisters in all of Florida.

This September of 2017 is now completely booked for guiding. Openings in October and the first 15 days of November.

As always, stay positive, think clearly do not listen to negative talk and do not listen to negative people.


God Bless     John Andrew.

Wondering if anyone has a fishing spot I could try. I would love to catch anything that bite if you know what I mean. Eagle river area would be best. Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

All fish were caught in deep water and on minnows. A fast retrieve was best for us. This husband and wife are some of the finest Wisconsin has to offer, my hat goes off to these 2 public servants.

Awesome job Sharon, keep sending all info thru the mail.

As the humidity and heat bare down on top of us in the next 3 days, fishing will be good early and in the afternoon.  It may slow during down during the burning sunny conditions but, much cooler conditions are forecast starting Monday and the rest of next week.  Several fisherman are heading up north for the last "super warm" weekend of the season.

As the humidity and heat continue to bare down on top of us in the next few days, fishing will continue to be good. It may slow during down a little during the burning sunny conditions but, fishing will rapidly pick up as much cooler conditions are forecast starting Monday.  Walleye fishing has been picking up and we saw a 48in Musky released on L.S.G. TODAY, Awesome job you 2.

Our fish were caught over a wood pile around 12 ft deep and casting produced 90% of our fish. We also caught a few trolling.

Fishing has been solid lately. Including some periods of nonstop action. Got into nice walleye using ripnraps and live bait under slips. Walleye seem to be scattered all over depths, but for me the bigger fish seemed to be deeper. Targeting crappie as well has offered very productive windows. With many 13inch fish up to 14+inches. Ripnraps and fatheads under slips have been best.

Good luck out there!

A special day with good friends.   This happy couple caught many fish today as they enjoyed a beautiful Northern Wisconsin early fall day. All fish were caught on minnows. Most fish were hard hitting and some trolling was also used for the Walleye.  More great people supporting Nothtern Wisconsin.

Warm temps moved water temps on our area lakes from the 62-64 degree range up to the 70-72 degree range by Saturday (9/16). A short cool down brought temps back into the 60’s, but forecast for the coming weekend with highs in the lower 80’s will inevitably drive water temps back up!
Largemouth Bass: Good–Very Good – Possibly due to their wide spread populations, LMB’s found in shallow weed flats (6-10’ on spinner baits, chatter baits and pre-rigged plastic worms). Out in deeper weed beds/edges Wacky worming, Carolina rigging and Texas rigging Sweet Beaver/creature baits effective.
Bluegill: Good-Very Good – The flying ants were out, giving Bluegill anglers clues to where to find Gills. In calm bays Gills found slurping ants off the surface. Nice catches using dry flys or small jigs 1-2’ below the surface.
Smallmouth Bass: Good-Very Good – Real whoppers this past week, fish of 19-21”. Tubes, drop-shot rigs best along 14-18’ gravel humps. Some anglers took advantage of warming temps to get in on some great top-water action come evenings.
Musky: Good – Fish moving, but not always taking, on bucktails. Warm weather causing fish to move, investigate. Some reports of fish out away from weeds while some up shallow as pointed out by Walleye angler (C&R) a 48” from weedy shallows.
Crappie: Good – Maybe not the numbers expected in September, but BIG slabs, many 13-14” with some 15”. Use medium fatheads, jigs with flash around flooded timber in 14-18’. Deep coontail edges of similar depth also producing. Night time with lighted slip-bobbers up by docks, boathouses and pilings effective.
Walleye: Fair-Good – Working lots of locations, finding fish one day means looking somewhere else the next. Despite the spotty action for most anglers, guide Greg Bohn scored and incredible 33”, 13#+ Walleye (C&R) on a slip-bobber and fathead this week.
Northern Pike: Fair-Good – Like the water a little cooler. Still decent action on spinner baits and swim baits in slightly deeper water of 8-12’.
Yellow Perch: Good-Fair – Not as many reports. Nice fish of 10-11” but not the #s.
Unseasonably warm weather (avg 10-15 degrees above normal) in forecast. Will help the Bass and Bluegill anglers, may hurt the rest. Should be great time to be on water though.

Fished Three Lakes chain Wed-Fri.  Boated 5 muskies, biggest was dad's 39". All in 5' or less of water. All on bucktails. Tried jerk baits but nothing. Algae bloom made some spots a murky waste. Lost a musky that looked bigger than the 48 incher I boated years ago. Thought I was hooked in rocks til it started moving slowly. Still ill because I got a good look boatside. Nice to get my 79 year old dad out there. I really appreciate all your posts because while I've fished here for 50 years, I live in KY now and live vicariously through you all..

This happy customer enjoyed his day producing fish after fish, a great man with a desire to learn and replicate his experience on his own. These fish were caught on plastics and bobbers. Shallow water and working the bobber quickly.
