Thinking of heading up on Friday was wondering if I should target the canal or bays. Looking to catch either bass or pike.

Bass fishing has been very Good! We have been doing well with wacky rigs, tubes, jerk baits, and flukes. Biggest yesterday was just shy of 6lbs!

Hey no picking on my buddy Gerbil.  Telling someone to leave the plug out of their boat is an awful thing to say.  I'm sure his bilge pumps faster than the water comes in.  Perfectly said riverratismyhero.

We had 45 Degree water temps in sister bay today. Didn't catch anything! Seems to be pretty shut down with the cold front. Worked hair jigs, plastics and some small crackle raps. 


But the beer was cold. So there's that.

Hey guys Lon from Green Bay Trophy Fishing Bass fishing in Sturgeon Bay/ south have been excellent with catches of big and small bass and day time walleyes as well! Today we boated a bunch of bass customers were happy beat a bunch of water up teaching a few newbies some spots techniques learning is part of the game and I love teaching and fishing with new clients who have never been to Door County before! Big water can be intimidating and not knowing where to go or start. Walleye fishing is on fire we are on a great eater bite and sunset rip-jig bite.

Fishing Report-

Walleye fishing for us has been 50/50 trolling and rip-jigging depending on the conditions wind ect. Sometimes you just have to put the planner boards on to get fish #9 flicker minnows with purple/pinks 30-50 feet back have been deadly for us! Howies plastics on a mushroom jig head, #6 ripping raps, 1/16 to 1/4 hair jigs working good for us in shallow water 5-13 feet has been deadly. Deeper water programs that are working for us are #6 - #7 ripping raps, Kietech 4" fat swings, 3/8 - 1/2  Howies Hair jigs working shoreline breaks 15 - 40 feet seems the calmer it is the deeper the fish slide with good wind and wind driven points fish seem to be more active during daylight especially around Sturgeon Bay or clear water situations! Smallmouth bass fishing inner bays, Sturgeon Bay shipping channel Larson's reef holding bass tossing plastics like Howies tubes, Malibu jigs, hair jigs, live bait rigs all good choices right now! Were spoiled living in such a great fishery! However catch and release is important to sustain an incredible fishery! We filmed a Larry Smith Outdoors show last Monday showcasing the Sturgeon Bay area catching walleye, pike, bass using a variety of baits and techniques. The show will air Sunday morning 5/21/2017 check it out! Larry is not only funny but fun to fish with always full of stories laughs makin fishing fun and a joy to be around! "It's a great day to be alive" as Larry would say.
