Re: Living the dream

Got to spend some time out on the water while on vacation with the family this week at the cabin on a clear, deep lake east of Tomahawk. Despite some less than desirable conditions with winds out of the east and northeast, we did manage to track down some pretty active perch on weed edges in depths ...

Re: Living the dream

Tomahawk missed out on the big rainstorm that moved across the central part of the state Thursday into this morning, so the area reservoirs should be in pretty decent shape heading into this weekend. We continued to target the shallow water last weekend catching bluegills and crappies up along shore...

Re: Living the dream

Aside from the rain that dampened the latter part of this past Memorial Day weekend, conditions were perfect to get out and experience the exceptional shallow bite that has been taking place on Tomahawk area waters of late. Early morning and afternoon outings produced pretty nice catches of panfish ...

Re: Living the dream

Woke up to a fresh coat of the white stuff covering the ground at home west of Tomahawk this morning. Hard to believe for this time of year, but at least it should be gone soon. Spent some time out on the water this past weekend and found a pretty decent overall bite. Everything from walleye and sma...

Re: Living the dream

I can't remember an opener that was as busy as this past Saturday was here in the Tomahawk area. Boat landings were packed on the Spirit Flowage, while I heard from others they were parked on CTH A on Lake Alice and things were awfully busy on the Willow as well. Good to see interest in the sport is...

Re: Living the dream

Good luck to everyone heading out for this weekend's opener. Expect plenty of activity on Tomahawk area waters as forecasters are calling for some really nice weather with highs in the 70s both Saturday and Sunday. Got out for a bit the other day looking for crappies and found the walleye on a Tomah...

Re: Living the dream

And just like that the snow has returned and it feels like we should be getting the tip ups ready for early ice here in the Tomahawk area. Got out a few times while the weather was still nice this past weekend and managed to find some active walleye and crappie. The crappie were caught in pre-spawn ...

Re: Living the dream

With the ice fishing season in the rear view mirror it is time to start targeting open water as well as below area dams here in the Tomahawk area. I've been hearing about some decent catches of walleyes below Wisconsin River dams (Kings Dam and Pride Dam) but haven't heard of too many legals being c...

Re: Living the dream

Went out on Lake Alice for a little while last evening and had about 18 inches of ice. Boot creepers are a must as the ice surface was very slippery. Picked up about five inches of snow last night, so expect things to be sloppy out there once again as it melts. Used the spud to open old holes off of...

Remember a daily or seasonal launch fee is needed to use that and other boat landing on Lake ...

You are correct. It is a bunch of wild turkeys in the background. They are pretty common around the bird feeders here during the winter.

Re: Living the dream

With high temperatures getting above 30 degrees for the first time in over a month this past weekend, we finally busted out the tip downs and targeted the Willow Flowage for panfish. Used rosy reds on small trebles and minnow style jigs in about 13 feet of water and found a decent crappie bite Satur...

It might feel down right balmy come this weekend as forecasters are calling for temperatures to reach 20 degrees ABOVE ZERO here in the Tomahawk area. Expect to see a good number of anglers out on the water come Saturday to take advantage of the nice weather and to take part in a pair of ice fishing...

Re: Living the dream

After a couple weeks of some pretty tough fishing, the action did start to pick up once again in the Northwoods over this past weekend. We targeted a Tomahawk area reservoir Saturday and found some nice perch and crappie in 10 feet of water. Fish were caught using fatheads on tip ups as well as on t...

Re: Living the dream

Tough conditions and minimal results pretty much summed up our weekend of fishing in the greater Tomahawk area over the past couple days. Did manage to locate some nice bluegills on a Tomahawk area reservoir Friday but the bite was short lived after a storm front moved through. That trip was also cu...

Brrrrr. Temps are rebounding nicely in the Tomahawk area today after starting the day out at minus 28 degrees. Thanks goodness there was no wind otherwise it would have been really brutal.Not much to report on the fishing side from the past week as frigid temps have greatly limited the amount of tim...

Re: Living the dream

A wet, heavy snow continues to fall in the Tomahawk area Tuesday morning as forecasters are predicting anywhere from 3 to 5 inches by the time it is done. The beauty of the Northwoods will be on full display come Christmas as just about everything from the treetops to the old piles of snow will be c...

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...

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...

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...

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...
