Re: Living the dream

Just a heads up for anyone wondering if the warm weather put a halt to ice fishing here in the Tomahawk area, I was told this morning there were still trucks driving out on Nokomis Tuesday morning. We've picked up about two inches of snow with the dropping temperatures overnight and into this mornin...

Re: Living the dream

If last winter was about two weeks ahead of schedule, then the fast start to the winter of 2014 might be considered a full month ahead of where we typically might be this time of year. Those not taking to the woods for the final weekend of the gun deer season had plenty of ice fishing opportunity to...

Re: Living the dream

Those not taking to the woods for the start of the gun deer season this past weekend found plenty of fishable ice here in the Tomahawk area. In upwards of seven inches of ice or more was measured in areas without current. Things were melting heading into the Monday when we picked up a half foot of s...

Re: Living the dream

Spoke with an angler who was out this afternoon on a protected bay on Mohawksin who said he had about 3 inches of good ice. Conditions will only continue to improve heading into this weekend with lows forecasted to get down around zero tonight. Continue to use caution as ice conditions can vary grea...

Re: Living the dream

Here we go ice anglers. Dropping temperatures following 14 inches of snowfall over the past two days here in the Tomahawk area should lead to a very early start to the ice fishing season. Small lakes have already begun to freeze up and nighttime lows in the single digits means it won't be long befor...

Re: Living the dream

Time to get the ice fishing gear ready. If the current extended forecast holds, it looks like we could be ice fishing here in the Tomahawk area as early as mid November.Will once again be reporting on area ice conditions as the season gets closer. Time to find the creepers, touch up the ice chisel a...

Re: Living the dream

This past weekend provided some amazing weather to get out and enjoy the fall colors as well as an exceptional walleye bite that continues in the Tomahawk area. Local waters were surprisingly busy with the big Central Wisconsin River Bass Series taking place on Mohawksin and other area flowages fill...

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

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

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: 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

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...

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...

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...

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 ...
