Anglers are finding outstanding fishing right now in central Wisconsin for all species.

The muskies are very active and we are seeing some very nice fish coming from shallow weedy areas. Walleyes continue to be a pleasant catch and along with numbers, we are seeing some nice-sized fish as well.

The crappies and bluegill bite is about as good as it could get with lots of great eating sized fish being caught. Smallmouth and largemouth bass have been very aggressive and right now top water baits are catching the most fish.

In addition to all the game fish we are seeing we are also catching a pile of white bass and catfish, which are not only fun to fight, but they are very plentiful and they will keep you entertained all day long.

Have a great week!
