A beautiful weekend with lots of happy (and sunburned) fishermen.
The water is warming up. Kate and company have been tubing, jetskiing, and swimming.
The forecast is gorgeous.

Thursday May 15
The good news is all the docks and boats are in and the fish are biting.
The bad news is it is snowing again.
The forecast beginning Saturday is awesome but today and tomorrow feels more like March than May.
Thursday, May 8
The ice is finally gone and the docks are going in this morning.
A beautiful weekend forecast. Come on up.
Tuesday, May 6
Good news the ice is finally BLACK and moving around and breaking up.
Outlet bay and Thunder Bay are pretty much ice free so in a day or two we will be putting in the docks
and be ready to roll for another season!!!!
The weather forecast is in our favor for the first time in months as well.
PHILS' FISHING, SNOWMOBILING, and SKIING REPORT
Some are catching fish and for others it has been tough going. The water temp has been slowly going down (weird for mid July) so the fish are a bit confused.
Fishing is great--panfish, northerns, bass......weeds are low and water is high.
Fishing has been very good. Walleye, Bass and Northern action is good.
Bluegill and Crappie have been biting as well.
The bluegills and bass are snapping in the shallows.
The Budz brothers (And Dan) had great luck on northerns, crappies, and muskies as well.
Dominic and Joe got whipped in softball by Team Fabulous Phil but
they have caught walleyes, northerns and smallies up to 6 pounds.
The best time to be fishing is NOW!
Fishing is awesome--catching is good too!
Nine 40 plus inch inch muskies this week headlined by a 48 incher.
Alex even caught one down by the Headwaters of the Wisconsin River.
Bass and gills are in the shallows and walleyes are even biting off the dock in the evenings.
Northern are snapping as usual. The pics below say it all!
The crappies are in spawning and the bass and bluegills are getting ready.
The walleye bag limit was raised to 3 on LVD.
Jeff Gould caught (and released) a 47 inch musky yesterday--awesome video.
Thursday May 15
Today is opening day of the musky season. Everything but smallmouth bass is open.
Perch and crappies have been biting pretty well.
Walleye action has been spotty and the northerns are feeding aggressively.
Water temp is closing in on 50 degrees and the lake level is perfect!
The forecast is excellent so join us the next 3 weeks or so for the best fishing of the season.
Thursday, May 8
The ice is gone, water level is normal, and walleyes are coming in to spawn.
The best fishing of the year is right around the corner.
SPRING, SUMMER, FALL & WINTER HAVE LOTS OF HAPPY FISHERMEN AT SUNRISE.
The 2014 fishing season is off to a great start.
Nice Bass are being caught too.
Northern and Musky aren't too shabby either.
John Brust has the start of a good fish fry with Crappies caught in June, 2014
PHIL'S WORDS OF WISDOM ???
What was the greatest thing before sliced bread?
PHIL'S PACKER REPORT
The Pack is looking good! The Bears are still tried for 1st. Everyone is happy.
Peppers a Packer and Allen a Bear---the Vikes cupboard still looks bare.
Snowmobiling for the Super Bowl! The trails were way better than the Bronco's!
NFL FOOTBALL IS AWESOME.....but not quite as good without the Pack and DaBears doing battle.
Another good season for the Pack....beating the Bears and making the playoffs on the last day of the season.
I don't think the Pack will do much in the playoffs but at least they made it. (sorry Bears fans)
Augie - Here is that picture of you wearing a Packer shirt....again and again!
It isn't easy being green. Looks like he'll be wearing this classy shirt again next summer.
Go Packers !
