Learn the Most Effective Wisconsin Salmon Egg Cure

By: Kyle Deavers Our river salmon season in Wisconsin has started earlier than we are used to this year. We already have salmon in harbors and rivers from Kenosha to Northern Wisconsin. These salmon have taken to the skein bite for the past few weeks and this pattern will continue through early October. This egg [...]

Learn to Use Fire Dye Worms To Catch Big Bluegill

By: Kyle Deavers We all know that catching bluegill isn’t difficult. Anyone can do it. I’ve been fun-fishing for bluegill my entire life and have never struggled to get bit. Meanwhile, catching hand-size bluegill can be a challenge. Recently, I’ve been venturing out and experimenting to find better ways to catch larger bluegill and have [...]

Wisconsin Salmon Fishing: Best in Many Years

By: Kyle Deavers This season has been a welcome sight to salmon anglers in Wisconsin. For the first time in many years we are catching large numbers of Chinook and they are much bigger than we’ve been seeing in previous years. This is the best bite we’ve had since 2010 and provides hope that our [...]

Learn Easy Late Winter Cure For Trout & Steelhead Eggs

By: Kyle Deavers It’s late winter in the Great Lakes and steelhead action is improving daily as temperatures warm. While I’ve been catching lots of trout and steelhead on BorX O Fire cured shrimp I’m also drifting spawn sacks daily. As early spring approaches and the water warm the spawn bite will only improve as [...]

Wisconsin Salmon Staging on the Lakefront

By: Kyle Deavers The skein bite has been hit or miss the past few weeks in Southeast Wisconsin. Some days we’re getting a few fish to bite in the harbors and rivers on skein. Meanwhile, warmer than normal river and harbor temperatures are keeping most of the salmon pinned to the lakefront. With the current [...]

Learn the Simplest Great Lakes Salmon Cure

By: Kyle Deavers We’re on the verge of egg curing season in the Great Lakes. In many areas it’s already started. However, it’s amazing to me how many people still used homemade and old school egg cures that aren’t effective. During our short river salmon season having good cured eggs is the difference between success [...]

Wisconsin Pike Lethargic In Midst of Arctic Blast

By: Chris Shaffer Wisconsin’s weather has fluctuated the past two weeks. It nearly reached the 50s two weeks ago, before dropping a few inches of rain and then cascading below zero only a few days later. The massive swings in temperature pumped dirty water into the rivers and harbors and nearly compromised ice conditions prior [...]

Great Lakes Pike Hammering Fire Dye & Fire Brine Live and Dead Bait

By: Kyle Deavers Due to late arriving ice Saturday was the first time I’d ice fished for pike this year. Meanwhile, upon arrival there were so many people already fishing I was contemplating heading back to the harbor to fish for browns and steelhead. Upon arrival we noticed more than 100 anglers already set up [...]

Fall Like Weather Greeting Wisconsin Steelhead & Brown Trout Anglers

By: Kyle Deavers The last two years we were ice fishing our harbors and the lower part of the rivers during Christmas season along the Wisconsin shoreline. This winter, however, we’ve been fishing in warmer weather than we are used to. There’s no ice around and we aren’t expecting ice to form anytime in the [...]

Southern Wisconsin Anglers Working Hard For Salmon

By: Kyle Deavers It’s been a struggle to catch salmon in our harbors and rivers in Southern Wisconsin. Don’t get me wrong you can catch fish. However, we have to work very hard to get bit. This is one of the lowest returns I’ve seen in at least a decade. I’m catching fish. I haven’t [...]
