Re: Living the dream

The Tomahawk area picked up around three to four inches of snow last night heading into the final weekend of the snowmobile season. 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

With all the recent cold and access problems due to the heavy snow and slush on the ice there hasn't been a lot to report on as far as fishing in the Tomahawk area is concerned as of late. The Team Slayer Ice Fishing Contest was held at the Pine Tree Supper Club this past Saturday to raise money for...

Re: Living the dream

Just a heads up for anyone planning to attend the annual Somo Fish and Game Club Ice Fishing Jamboree on Somo Lake tomorrow, Saturday, Feb. 22, the contest has been cancelled due to the weather. Just goes to show what kind of winter it has been, as I can't remember them ever having to cancel a jambo...

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...

Re: Living the dream

Just wanted to pass along to anyone who may be heating a cabin, or summer home, this winter in the Tomahawk area that city officials have called for an emergency meeting tomorrow morning to discuss issues being created by the deepening frost in the ground. Just like a number of other Northwoods comm...

Re: Living the dream

The good news is the slush that had enveloped the ice shack froze up over the past week. The bad news is temperatures have greatly reduced the amount of time on the ice as of late. Managed to get out for a few hours Sunday evening between arctic blasts and came across a few active panfish and walley...

Re: Living the dream

Those planning to take part in the Tomahawk Fishing Unlimited Family Fishing Contest this Saturday will want to dress appropriately and be prepared. Sounds like the better weather will be earlier in the day before temps drop once again heading into Saturday evening and Sunday. Might be a good idea t...

Re: Living the dream

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. Heard a report of a group of guys who got their vehicles stuck out on the Willow Flowage four days ago and still haven't been abl...

Re: Living the dream

Mother Nature can put a quick end to even the best laid plans, as was the case for our group over this past weekend. Started out with a slow walleye bite at the shack on the Spirit Saturday morning. After several hours soaking shiners, we ended up with two shorts that were put back. Tried Shantytown...

Re: Living the dream

Not much to report on the fishing bite here in the Tomahawk area as of late as anglers wait out this brutal arctic front that continues to impact the state. Saw on a local news station this morning the Tomahawk area was the coldest place in the United States. I had -31 degrees at the house and a wom...

Re: Living the dream

You know it has been cold when 5 degree high temps feel like a heat wave. Much like last weekend, this coming Saturday should provide the one decent day of the week to get out on the ice as highs are expected to top out around 20 degrees. A very brutal arctic blast is set to move in Sunday with lows...

Re: Living the dream

Continuing to see a strong walleye bite here in the Tomahawk area. Some nice 16" to 20" fish mixed in with a bunch of shorties caught Saturday evening and Sunday morning. Setting tip ups along channel edge in 5' to 8' and picking up fish all day long. Catching a few fish on tip ups set in ...

Re: Living the dream

Saw on the news last night this would be the sixth coldest December on record for the Northwoods if the month were to end today. The good news about that statement is we now have plenty of ice to venture out on and a slight warm up is on its way. Even before dropping to -24 in Tomahawk the other nig...

Re: Living the dream

What a difference a year can make. Last year we weren't consistently getting out on the ice until mid December. This year I'm planning to pull the shack out using the truck on Saturday. Not much to report on the Tomahawk area bite as it has been too cold for this angler and many of the others I have...

Re: Living the dream

Well, I guess the good thing is you shouldn't need to worry about the Kreepers anymore. Picked up several inches of snow here in the Tomahawk area over the past several days. About eight inches on the ground now where I live west of town. Yesterday saw mostly rain, so not quite sure what the ice wil...

Re: Living the dream

The Tomahawk area picked up an additional four to five inches of snow last night. The forecast shows a bigger dumping on the way over the next two days. Keep in mind this will create additional current on local flowages and could change ice conditions. The recent warming trend has opened back up the...

Re: Living the dream

Had about six inches of ice in the bay I was fishing on the Spirit Reservoir last evening. Spoke with a guy who was fishing the channel and he had about five inches. Ice thickness will very from lake to lake and even area to area so make sure to continue to use caution. Walleyes are the target now, ...

Re: Living the dream

While it might not have made for the best opener of the gun deer season, the recent stretch of frigid weather did help build the ice base on area lakes over the past few days. Got out for the first time this season Sunday evening and found between three and four inches of ice on the Spirit Flowage. ...

Re: Living the dream

Picked up close to 5 inches of snow out by the house near Spirit Falls last night. Tomahawk saw a little less, but with another inch or so expected for this evening, there should be plenty of tracking snow for hunters heading into the opener this weekend. Will be cold and making good ice starting Sa...

Re: Living the dream

Thoughts are quickly turning to the upcoming ice fishing season after a couple days of highs in the 20s and lows dipping into the single digits here in the Tomahawk area. Checked the Bradley Park boat landing this afternoon and measured around a good one inch of ice. Not enough to venture out on, es...

Re: Living the dream

Will be out over this weekend trying to track down a beefy musky in the Tomahawk area. Been hearing about ice forming on some of the back bays already. Water temperatures being reported are in the upper 40s. Forecasting wind to pick up today and into Saturday, which will see an air temp high of 40 d...

Re: Living the dream

Been out fishing several times since the last report and finding quite a bit of action on panfish and walleye here in the Tomahawk area. Fishing below dams and on flowages and finding aggressive feeding gills, perch and walleye. We've been using a simple Mini Mite and sinker tipped with a chunk of c...

Re: Living the dream

The only thing better than the relaxation the Willow Flowage provided over this past weekend was the fishing. Got out for an overnighter Saturday and found good crappie, perch and big bluegill action. First spot we tried, jigging the deeper channel, produced some nice perch. Then fished off some sho...
