Fishing Report / News



Overall Pike have been slow. Not a lot of information has been coming in on the Pike with this cold front.


Crappie have slowed up a bit with the massive cold front that has come in. Word from Deano, a local guide, is that some Crappies are hitting off the bottom in deeper water but most of the action is coming from suspended fish in 15-20 feet of water. Minnows and plastics have been working well and purple has been a good color.


The rest of this week will remain cold however come this weekend temperatures should rise to the mid to high 30s and remain that way all of next week. Expect some snow showers on Monday and some rain and snow on Tuesday.

Ice Depth

22 inches

CJ Grouse 2014
Eleven year old CJ from Illinois got a license and some good advice about hunting ruffed grouse from Jenk’s Bait & Tackle. On Saturday 10/4/2014, CJ got his first ever ruffed grouse while hunting on public land in Sawyer County Wisconsin. Thanks Jenks Bait & Tackle!!!!
