Re: Living the dream

The DNR just posted the new daily walleye bag limits that will go into effect starting tomorrow, May 23. Some of the local waters that saw numbers reduced to a one fish bag limit earlier this spring have seen bag limits restored to a more respectable numbers just in time for the Memorial Day weekend...

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

Wishing I had been out fishing for the opener but our yellow lab got into a fight with a porcupine Saturday morning and needed emergency surgery and 40 staples put into his leg and stomach. Vet said he should be fine, but Chuck from Chuck's Bait Shop informed me his old dog developed a hatred for th...

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 ...

Re: Living the dream

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 ...

Re: Living the dream

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...

Re: Solunar/Lunar peak fishing periods

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 ...

Re: Living the dream

We have finally been able to get out and do a little more fishing over the past few days with the warming temperatures here in the Tomahawk area. Between two guys, we iced around two dozen nice crappies yesterday evening on Lake Mohawksin with the biggest being a beautiful 14-inch fish. Fish were ca...

Re: Living the dream

Some warmer weather finally this weekend should bring a few more anglers out on the ice. I have heard anglers using snowmobiles have been getting around on some bodies ...

Re: Living the dream

After a couple week hiatus due to the continued cold and slush and snow on Tomahawk area lakes, we finally got the opportunity to get out over this past weekend. Travel was limited to foot, but getting around wasn't too bad as the snow was pretty well packed down on the trail we walked. Crappie acti...

Re: Living the dream

Snow is once again coming down here in the Tomahawk area with 3 to 6 inches forecasted for this Monday. Managed to get out a few times over the past week and found the crappie bite remains pretty good in the places we were able to fish. Fished Mohawksin mid-week and found crappies in 15 feet of wate...

Re: Living the dream

The panfish bite has picked up some on the Tomahawk area flowage we fished over the past week. Saturday produced some nice gills using tiny Tungston jigs tipped with waxies. You actually had to be careful fighting the big fish as they would straighten the hook if you were not careful. We lost more t...

Expect truck travel on Tomahawk area lakes and flowages to be difficult this weekend as the area picked up around a foot and a half of additional snow over the past week.
