Local Fishing Report

I had two parties in here over the weekend that did pretty well around the end of the day between 5:30-6:30 p.m. They caught some walleyes, but, besides that, it’s hard to give a true update because there weren’t that many people who were out over the weekend. Seems to be a lot of smaller walleyes coming off Lake Tomahawk yet, though. (Public access)

Following a chilly week, temps got nice enough over the weekend to get anglers out on the ice. Many experienced good (though not great) fishing, but after the way things were in mid-January, good is pretty darn nice. (Public access)

The Plaid Clad Rambler
Some of my earliest outdoor memories involve romping around in my grandparents’ big backyard in Oregon, Wis. Towering hardwoods rose out of a sea of waving grass that grew tall against my pudgy, clumsy legs. (Subscriber access)

The Lake Where You Live

Conventional wisdom has it that, from the time any lake forms, it is slowly dying. It receives nutrients that feed algae and plants that die and decompose; it steadily accumulates more nutrients until it gets choked with weeds and slowly fills in. (Public access)

Local fishing report
There were a few more fish caught this week than last week. Walleyes are being caught around 30 feet. Fishers using tip ups are using bigger bait now, trying to get along the deep weed lines where the drop off meets the flats. (Public access)

Ice conditions have been good. I haven’t heard of anyone falling through. We have a pretty good base out there with 12-16 inches of ice pretty much wherever you go. The problem right now is slush. (Public access)
