Wisconsin Outdoors: Fishing the Wisconsin River

With the ice all but gone on the river and waterways of Wisconsin I was finally able to head out to try and catch some fish.

With the help of professional guide Phil Schweik, I hit the Wisconsin River to go Walleye fishing.

While on the water Phil imparted many helpful hints, tips and tricks for better fishing, such as:

Jig slowly along the bottom in cold temperatures to attract fish that will be moving slower due to the cold.

Always throw against the current and allow it to carry your bait.

As water temperatures rise on cold days the fish will become more active, which means the best times to fish are closer to midday in winter and spring.

Those along with much more insight allowed for a successful day of fishing, which you can checkout in the video above.
