Wolf River March 22 & 26




The walleye  bite was good before the snow storms. Dave and Carl caught 12 walleyes. Jigs casted and vertical presentations.


Saturday after more high  water and temps at 39 degrees. I had Brandon Gitter and Brandon Faber with a tough bite. 6 dandy fish For dinner!

Monday March 14 Wolf River

Tough bite on the Wolf. We boated 8 walleyes only 4 keepers . The females are not coming up the river yet.  Should be 1 to 2 weeks away from the “run”.

I finally made it out with David Gray and his friend Cal. Both from Antigo.  The sun came out and it was a beautiful day.! Water was 42 degrees.P1030102 P1030103 P1030104

3/11/16 Wolf River


Fishing report for Friday

Caught a 2 person limit and released small walleyes. Patience was needed with really cold water – 34 Degrees yet.
Green Bay rivers are 40 degrees and fish are more aggressive there. But on the Wolf they are really light. Slow down your presentation. More walleyes will be caught.

I recommend braided line for a number of reasons. What a fun Day on the Wolf River walleye fishing.

I have openings this Sunday and Monday.

Today I am giving a seminar at Cabelas Green Bay @ 230 Pm . Stop by and let’s talk spring walleye fishing!

2/29/16 Ice fishing Green Bay

Fishing report for 2/29/16.

Fishing was really good for white fish limits.

My group of 5 was catching and releasing fish for fun as they had there limits! We using Pimples, bell sinkers and slide through sinkers that bumped together and attracted fish. Double sliders worked well also.

Moreover line type made a differnce. Mono-filament out-fished braid by a wide margin as well. The floating action gives a action fish like. I fish both til I see what works best.

We had a lot of current and raps where not working this day. Wind hit 40 mph for a good part of the day. Drifting snow covered very large 24 inch crack in the ice about 2 miles out. So be very careful. One access point had a lot of water and others had none and that is due to springs in Sawyer Harbor area.

I had a great year on the ice; and Monday was my last day venturing way out in Green Bay.

Fishing for Walleyes is my passion. I am going to start fishing the Fox this week and up and down the Wolf river as soon as that opens up.

Spring fever is here–for me a real “medical condition”! Time to walleye fish from my boat and get into the grove again for 2016. 😛
