First time on a guided trip on Green bay. Fished with Green Bay Trophy Fishing on Saturday morning and had good results. Lonney was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area we were fishing even thought there was many boats fishing we were able to get on fish. It was nice that we didn't stay with the groups of other boats if we were not successful. He was able to take us to areas where there was no other fishing pressure, and get us on fish. Nice clean boat and nice equipment for us to use. Lonney was very accommodating when either my wife or I would need to use the bathroom. Facilities are close and he had no problem picking up and taking us in for a break.

We got hooked up early with a Sheeps head, then the Walleye started. We got 4 total, in a 4 hour trip. 2 between 18" and 20", 1 at 25" and a shorty at 14.5". Wish we would have booked more time as it seemed like we were starting to get more consistant fish. It was fun as the Walleyes only got bigger and bigger with each one we reeled in. All and all a fun morning to be on the water. Good chopped helped, but at times proved to be a challenge to navigate, but our guide really knew how to navigate the waters and kept us comfortable during our adventure, we will use Lonney and his services again next year!

Monster Monday- Green Bay continues to give up 30 inch class Walleyes! It seems every guide trip where in contention for a few 30 inch walleyes, the summer bite is definitely on for trophy Walleyes.

*Fishing report 7/27/2015- Night crawler harnesses have been dominating the field when fishing for Green Bay walleyes. Gold colorado blades and gold hatchet blades have both been working well with 1 ounce in line weights tipped with fat juicy nightcrawlers 15-30 ft back behind the offshore planer boards. Crank baits of all varieties have been working as long as there's a good chop. It's hard to maintain a good speed in rough water with crawler harnesses pulling 1 mph (to much surge), so crank baits can be effective with a 2 to 3 ft. chop and more.

*Please give us a call to experience Green Bay Fishing*

What a great day to be on the water walleye fishing legendary Green Bay! Fishing started out good this morning picking up a few eater walleyes out of the gate! Mid to late morning slowed down for us. There was a beautiful walleye chop this morning and the wind laid down as the morning progressed in turn our walleye chop laid down as well making our bite a little tough. Enjoyed the company of my Chicago customers/friends spending time in the boat.

**Fishing report 7/23/2015** Walleye fishing remains strong the key for me has been beating a bunch of spots up looking for active fish there's fish being caught all over lower Green Bay & upper Green Bay on shoals and reefs. Crank baits, husky jerks, flickr shads, flickr minnows, reef runner's, salmo hornets, all working when we have a 1 to 2 foot chop or better. Night crawler harnesses for light chop and flat calm water.

Looking to experience Green Bay fishing?

Fished 7-18-2015 in the Sturgeon Bay area looking for some trophy walleye. We started out on Larsons reef pulling crank baits due to the rough water in the am with the storms that had gone through, with no action! Soon after 10 am. the winds started to subside and we got busy with our in-line weights and crawler harness to be met with flat calm water with a grind it out style fishing. Honesty paid big dividends with a few trophy walleyes reaching 30 plus inches and some upper 20's. Once again not a lot of bites but good bites the ones we were looking for! Patients is key! Lots of grinding.... waiting for for a small window of opportunity. My stomach is still turning after we lost an incredible walleye yesterday at the motor! The kid I had in the boat was helping me set lines, after the board went back, my client (the kid & dad) fought the walleye text book, taking the board off, the fish made a head turn and went for the bottom when i tried to net the walleye, hook straightened out on a crawler harness losing the walleye!! Moral of the story check your drags!! Lol my fault. Ahhh........!!! We will get him next time!! ..... Still burns!

We have some openings to get out fishing on Green Bay!

We had a group fishing with us this week that had special needs exciting time catching walleyes and a few sheep. Really felt good to be able to work with these cool cats that very rarely ever get the opportunity to go fishing!

*Fishing report 7/17/2015*

Walleye fishing remains to improve each week! Eater size Walleyes (lower Green Bay) Trophy size walleyes (Sturgeon Bay) and north are available to catch. Smallmouth bass continue to improve with northern Door County being the most consistent, along with some fish being caught along the Sturgeon Bay Area.

Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July weekend! Been fishing the Sturgeon Bay area with mixed results? Beating a lot of real estate up of course conditions change every day it's great to have a few spots on your punchlist when you go out fishing . I had an incredible day walleye fishing on the fourth fished some deep water structure out of Sturgeon Bay and was able to put together an in-line weight crawler harness presentation. In search of big eyes putting several 30 inch walleyes along with some upper 20s in the boat, it was just a great day all in all!.... there's nothing like catching these prehistoric looking gold beasts! Gold blades seem to out fish the silver blades also had good luck using uncle Josh's pork crawlers, speed veried based on direction but 1 mph was the gold standard by avarage!

I will be guiding out of the Sturgeon Bay Area and lower Green Bay the rest of the summer into the fall! If you're looking to learn a few new spots or catch a few fish or search for a trophy! Check us out!

Pics of a few walleyes caught this weekend sorry some of them are terrible I was fishing alone hard to take photos of big fish were released

Hey guys Lonney here from Green Bay trophy fishing

I have been fishing north and south of Sturgeon Bay with good results for eater walleyes and trophy walleyes. Fishing deeper water and deep water structure seems to be the ticket for trophy walleyes pulling crawler harnesses and crank baits based on weather conditions gold & silver blades with in-line weight seems to be my favorite. Catching a few walleyes this last past week over 30 inches with a few 28 to 26 inch walleyes as well. I found a few spots where the walleyes are putting the feed bag on (some days we work just for a few bites) but it pays big dividends on big fish !!

Looking for a trophy walleye? give me a shout!

Coming up to Sturgeon Bay this week with my family for the first time. The resort we are staying at provides canoes, so I was wondering if this body of water provides decent canoe fishing or if it is too choppy to be safe in a canoe. Also, what can I expect to catch in the shallow water along shore and where should I target if it is safe? Any information would be great. PM me. Thanks!

I was planning on taking my son for some smallmouth in the morning and was wondering what a good bait to use would be.

I was up in the Sturgeon Bay area Saturday from 3:30 a.m. til noon and then went back out around 7:30 until 3:30 a.m. The daytime bite was pretty much non existent ,except for several gobies. Threw everything but the kitchen sink at them. Marked a lot of fish but not one decent bite.

The night bite was hot just as I suspected it would be. We caught several fish in 8-17 FOW on custom painted Deep Huskey Jerks from walleye wacker lures. Biggest fish of the night was 28". Most fish were between 19"and 24" The night bite definitely made up for the slow morning. If you wanna get out and get on the fantastic night bite, I do have some opening. Give me a shout.

For a full report and to keep up with us, check out the Walleye Mafia Facebook page.
