Re: Living the dream

We've been catching some pretty nice walleyes in the Tomahawk area as of late as the fish have been putting on the fall feedbags. Multiple 20+ inch fish were caught and released last evening using larger minnows worked in the current below a Tomahawk area dam. The presentation was a simple hook and ...

Re: Tomahawk Chamber of Commerce

I think the Tomahawk Historical Society does a fine job for a small community. Much larger communities have much worse historical societies or none at all. Thank you to all the Tomahawk Historical Society volunteers who work hard to preserve our community's history. I agree 100 percent with Old Scou...

Re: Living the dream

Dodged some raindrops here in the Tomahawk area Saturday afternoon to put a musky in the boat and have a shot at another. Caught a 38-incher using a Nimmer Swimmer Prop Dog that I was casting on the inside edge of a weed bed. I was trying the spot after reading about inside cuts in the latest issue ...

Re: Living the dream

Brrrrr… Temps pretty cold here in the Tomahawk area to start out the work week as highs not expected to get much above 60 degrees today. Feels a lot more like September than mid July. Temps are forecasted to warm heading into this weekend, which should improve the bite following this big cool down. ...

Re: Living the dream

Just wanted to make everyone aware Lake Mohawksin will be hosting three fishing tourneys this weekend and next. The first gets underway this Saturday, July 12, as the Musky Nutz host the 10th annual Tony Mayer Musky Nutz Memorial on Mohawksin from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Two additional tournaments are plan...

Re: Living the dream

Been hearing of some really excellent musky catch and releases as well as some big fish starting to show up here in the Tomahawk area over recent weeks. Jeff Frick of Slither Tackles in Tomahawk used a Slither Tackle Musky Rattler Dual-Armed Buzzbait to boat a beautiful 52 inch fish this past Sunday...

Re: Searching for Unique Wedding Reception Locations in Toma

Re: Living the dream

Got out earlier this week and found some pretty decent gills and perch still up in the shallows on Lake Mohawksin. You could really notice the weeds and lily pads coming up, which required a bit more accuracy with the cast to get to the fish. Still using just a simple slip bobber and hook and sinker...

Re: Living the dream

Spent Friday on Lake Mohawksin targeting a number of different species beginning with muskies to start the day. A couple hours spent casting the newly emerging cabbage p...

Re: Living the dream

The panfish bite was so exceptional this past weekend here in the Tomahawk area we actually put down the musky rods and went after a few for the frying pan Sunday. Walleyes as well as a mixed bag of perch, big gills and crappies can now be found in the newly emerging weeds in as little as 2 to 3 fee...

Re: Living the dream

The conditions were just right late Monday to start the 2014 musky season off with a fish in the boat as a front moved through the Tomahawk area right before dark. Unfortunately I had been out earlier in the day when the storm was forecasted to move in, so I missed out on what I heard was some prett...

Re: Living the dream

Re: Living the dream

Early summer conditions have arrived here in the Tomahawk area just in time for Memorial Day weekend and the start of the 2014 musky season. Hearing reports of a lot of post-spawn walleye being caught up in the shallow wood and on areas with structure where spawning recently took place. Anglers also...

Re: Living the dream

Good luck to everyone heading out for the opener tomorrow. Might be some rain to contend with here in the Tomahawk area but at least it won't be snowing and highs should be around 50 degrees. Heard this morning Nokomis is really opening up while ice will likely restrict access on the Willow. Other f...

Re: Living the dream

Took a ride around this Wednesday morning to check ice conditions in the Tomahawk area waters as just three days remain until the start of the 2014 opener. Found Half Moon Lake completely ice free and Clear and Crystal Lake still had some ice. The Spirit, Mohawksin, Alice and the Wisconsin River sys...

One fish walleye limit

Was shocked this past weekend to find out Lake Mohawksin - now including all the way to Kings Dam - is under the one fish walleye limit effective immediately as a result of the spearing quotas. It just isn't worth the time or price to pay for bait to go back out on this stretch until after spearing ...

Ice on the opener, not a big deal in the Tomahawk area as at least the Wisconsin River system will be open for anglers to get out on the water come next weekend. The SARA Park boat landing opened up this week providing another launch point on Mohawksin and the river. A lot of water moving on the str...

Re: Living the dream

Picked up about a foot of new snow at my house west of Tomahawk over the past 24 hours. Kinda wishing I pulled the boat out of storage when I had a chance because it is going to be a little while before this melts and things dry up. Suppose to be in the 50s by this weekend, so the good news is it wo...

Re: Living the dream

What a difference a day makes. The Tomahawk area and Northwoods is once again under a fresh layer of snow and lows last night dipped to near zero. A gradual warm up is forecasted heading into this weekend, although another storm expected tomorrow could bring additional accumulations to the area. Up ...

Re: Living the dream

Just a quick heads up for anyone planning to head out on the ice on Tomahawk area lakes this weekend. Make sure to pack the hip boots. We found ankle deep slush on Mohawksin yesterday. A buddy who had been fishing a smaller Lincoln County lake the day prior said he ran into much deeper slush to the ...

The forecast shows we will be making a run at 60 degrees today here in the Tomahawk area. Waterfowl and birds of all kinds have been returning over the past couple weeks adding to the experience of being out on the ice. The Wisconsin River has really started to open up and I believe we are well ahea...

Been seeing a few boats around town, but I'm not sure if they have been in the water yet. They usually start putting in at the boat landing at Herb Mitchell off Hwy. 107 to start out the year. Will be a little while yet until Kwahamot is usable, although some more 60 degree days like forecasted for ...
