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

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...

Re: Living the dream

Just a heads up two fishing tournaments will be taking place on Lake Mohawksin this Saturday, Sept. 7. Could get a bit crowded out on the water, as both a musky and bass contest are scheduled for the same day. Might want to check out a different body of water if you're planning to fish in the area t...

Re: Living the dream

The colder weather and home repairs have really cut into the amount of time this angler has been able to spend on the water in recent weeks. That is about to change, as the weather is forecasted to begin warming up next week, which will coincide with the August full moon. I suspect the musky fishing...

Re: Living the dream

Got out for a little while Saturday morning to chase musky on Mohawksin before the heat of this past weekend set in. Ended up hooking into a very nice mid to upper 40-inch fish that I lost boat side after a pretty long battle. I guess that is why they call it fishing and not catching. I was using my...

Re: Living the dream

Fished below a Tomahawk area dam yesterday afternoon and had some pretty good action. Catching walleyes and bluegills using leeches with slip bobbers. Also caught walleyes using hook and sinker on bottom, but this did result in a few more snags. Some nice size fish were caught and the action was pre...

Re: Living the dream

After cramming several weeks of house work into the condensed spring we have seen here in northern Wisconsin, we were finally able to get out after some muskies here in the Tomahawk area Saturday evening. Had two really nice fish follow using topwaters, but as often is the case with when it comes to...

Re: Living the dream

I have been hearing of muskies up below Tomahawk area dams for the past several weeks, so hopefully they are done spawning for the start of the 2013 musky season opener this weekend in northern Wisconsin. Look for warm water and any possible weeds to start off the season. Small bucktails, jerk baits...
