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 [...]

Learn The Simplest Wisconsin Bobber & Egg Salmon Cure

So far we haven’t seen many kings or coho in our harbors in Southeast Wisconsin. However, as temperatures cool and we get some rain I’m expecting a fresh batch of salmon to migrate into our harbors and river systems. I’ve been fortunate to catch a few salmon already and recently cured a batch of skein [...]

Multiple Species Available on Southeast Wisconsin Shoreline

By Kyle Deavers I’ve been fishing daily on the west shore of Lake Michigan since April and fortunately the trolling bite has improved this year from last year. We’ve had a very good Coho bite because the bait is staying in Southeast Wisconsin. We have a very good lake trout population on this part of [...]
