The finest clients any Guide could ask for. Polite, friendly, always asking fishing questions, sharing there stories and wanting to learn more about fishing.

 My hat goes off to these 3 individual groups of clients. Catching up on posts. 

Wisconsin's Finest. 

All fish on plastic.

Terrible cold weather including rain, hail and wind disrupted the normal spawning cycle this spring, depending on where you were fishing in Vilas County Wisconsin. 

 Most of the bigger lakes are now getting back on spawning for the Gills and Crappie.

The bite is aggressive for us. 

 A few openings in September and October.

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

God Bless

Went to a lake in the Mercer area today and did well on gills lots of smaller ones with a nice meal of 7 to 8 inches several were looked to be pregnant and full of eggs with this warm weather coming they should really get going and bigger ones will move in more . All fish were shallow in a couple feet of water crawlers and bobbers with a small wire hook were the ticket.  Also had a deer swim across this lake in front of me today had to wait for it to cross before I could continue to my spot. Beautiful day on the lake again!!

Despite some very cold mornings to end the month of May, (temps in the upper 20’s at dawn and some snow), fishing remained pretty strong!

Walleye:  Very Good – Had to play peek-a-boo for a while, as Walleyes moved out of the shallows with cold, but bit well over deeper mud and wood before returning to shallower cover as waters warmed in afternoons.  Mornings did better on minnows and crawlers but leeches much preferred in afternoons towards dusk.

Smallmouth Bass:  Very Good – All catch and release as Bass filling shallows and hitting top-water lures, as well as tubes, with gusto!  Twitch baits and smaller Wacky Worms or Ned Worms also producing, as are plastic craws and plastic minnow imitations.

Musky:  Very Good – Lots of great reports from anglers catching fish in shallows on smaller bucktails (500’s), rubber tailed spinners (Wizards), and 6” twitch baits.   No monsters reported here, but one father/son duo reported 9 boated Sunday along with 4 on Saturday.

Largemouth Bass:  Very Good – Lots of action as LMB staging in weeds outside of spawning habitat waiting for Smallies to finish.  Pitching Wacky Worms tough to beat (Minnow Mike caught a 20 ½ on a Wacky) while spinner baits and chatter baits, as well as swim jigs dressed with twisters, scoring well!

Northern Pike:  Very Good-Good – Most on Mepps #4 and spinner baits.  Though Pike seem to think at times that anything that swims by them is fair game.

Crappies:  Good – Moved off beds, out to tall small leafed cabbage.  Tiny jigs with hair, tinsel or plastics working, as are minnows under small float.

Bluegills:  Good – Should improve with coming heat this weekend.  Thunderbugs, small leeches, even small minnows working.  Fly fisher people reporting success towards evening on poppers and dry flys!

Yellow Perch:  Fair – Not a lot of reports, but most likely due to lack of effort.

At the time of this writing, forecast of temps in the low-high 80’s this weekend should get the Largemouth Bass and Bluegills into shallows to spawn.  Weed growth should improve and more bug hatches will be on the way.

Was out Saturday in Oneida County. Kind of slow fishing. Some pike action. Largemouth and panfish weren't biting for us. 

Today, on a small Vilas Co. Lake the largemouth were hitting extremely well after dinner.  Various sizes. Smallmouth could not be located.

The fishing sucks. Not even gonna bother today and beat the traffic home.

Cold front killed the bite and the storms today will keep it that way.

Fished a lake that starts with A in afternoon and a flowage early. Only 3, 4 inch bass caught in the flowage.

FISHING REPORTS:

Well this will be a short one.  Too busy fishing and then working in the shop.  Even with the hard cold front that came thru here a couple of days ago the walleye fishing has stayed strong.  But our best bait has been 1/2 a crawler dragged on the bottom on green weed edges.


Depending on the lake the crappie bite has picked up also.  Wait for the end of the day in the warmest water for your best bite.  Plastics have been supreme.

Smallmouth bass have been chasing baits still away from their future beds.  They'll be going on soon, depending on the lake.

Bluegills are just starting the stage to get ready to prepare their beds.  You can't beat a crawler chunk on a 1/32 oz jig.  

Northern pike, they're everywhere right now.

So get out there.  This should be the week you should have been up here for when you came the week after!



Our store hours are M-T-W-Th 6am to 7pm, Fr 6am to 10pm, Sat 6am to 7pm and Sunday 6am to 5pm.

Our minnows all come direct from trappers in central Wisconsin. Right now we just have crappie minnows, large fatheads, XL fatheads (Tuffys), Redtail chubs, Blacktail chubs, River Shiners, Northern minnows and Walleye Suckers.  We have plenty of jumbo night crawlers from Canada, along with Jumbo panfish worms and wax worms.  As always, crawlers are available in 1dz, 2dz, 100ct and by the flat (500 ct) in dirt or bedding.  And we sell waxies in bulk tubs, too.  And of course we got lbs and lbs of leeches, mostly large and jumbo right now.

MUSKY OPENER TOMORROW 5/29: Well a long waited day comes tomorrow, THE MUSKY OPENNER UP NORTH. The problem is you are going to start the day in your LONGJOHNS... that's right. Early morning temps will be mid to lower 20's. Last few nights I have already lost some garden plants and tonight will be the coldest, this night plans are ready. So early morning has a major but you might see some ice on the line. Be ready.

Good Luck & Good Fish'n
