Hi, I'm new to this site and am hoping to get some good information on shore fishing. Right now I am mainly looking for some good spots to catch brook trout or brownies. I am using flooding spawn sacks, hook and line, no other attachments. Am I doing this right? Any information or help would be much appreciated. I am fishing in sturgeon bay to egg harbor. Bay or lake side.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Sherpa,

Are you taking the walk to the south pier or casting from the lighthouse pier?

I tried out by barge road without any luck. Hit or miss by train bridge.....

Maybe we can hook up for an outing. I'm a skip from the highway bridge.......

Splash, I'm talking about lake Michigan coast guard station, I casted a few times in last week, not doing good but catching 1 or two fish when I'm there, got a 25 inch eye , and a 27 ,this past week and got a 6 or 7 lb brown also, been seeing a lot of boats trolling both north and south of canal and did see a boat with 2 fish on while trolling just north of pier so browns must be in, still waiting for warmer weather

We close out the season in Sturgeon Bay with some beautiful walleyes the last few days on walkable ice we found ice fishing Sawyer harbor, Sherwood point area. Typical odd ball jigs tipped with minnows & jigging raps were the preferred choice on the menu, I believe we still have a few more days to walk off shore based on wind direction, ice is moving around on the Sherwood point side with south and east winds so please be careful!! We put a lot of eyes on the ice this winter actually one of our most consistent winters in terms of a steady walleye bite. Never big numbers of walleyes averaging 1-4 fish sits with clients but had some stellar days with 7-8 fish sits mornings and evenings. Our biggest eye this year hit the rapala scale at 12 pounds with several 9-10 pounders and many 6-7-8's pounders. Fishing on Green Bay were pretty spoiled in terms of many other walleye fisheries. (Except Lake Erie thats not fair) point being we have a great walleye fishery!

Whitefish started out hot first ice but once again making steady adjustments was the key to staying on whitefish, fishing pressure increased along with current changes, wind, and other variables.

Put together a short video of a few of our highlights this season

Thanks to many of you that supported us during the 2015 ice season!

You can cast of either north or south side of pier, try using swim baits, rippin rap, clacking rap or husky jerks, after casting there for a few years now the fish seem yo be concentrated in a few spots, I tried once a few days ago and had one walleye 26 inches, if your gonna cast at night try and get there a little earlier people are starting to catch on about this spot not to mention all the guide boats that have been goin there, it is a little early, some warm weather will for sure improve the bite, good luck

For the guy looking to update his Lowrance unit for connecting to the Xi5 using the Gateway, there is never any charge to update software and like stated you can do it at home by going to Lowrance.com and the support page and finding product downloads and loading the zip file to your computer and then extracting the software update and loading that on the SD card for your unit. There are instructions on the website on how to do this. Or take your unit to places like Gander mountain or Cabela's and they have an update chip ready to go. I will be at Cabela's in Green Bay Saturday from 9AM until about 4PM this coming Saturday the 21st doing updates and giving product demos for Lowrance if you would like to bring it in then.

FISHING REPORT
3/17/15 9:25 AM CST
Air Temp: 86° - 90° F Water Temp: Below 40° F
Went out Saturday and limited out when I got fish in about 20-30 mins. I started in 40 flow and marked fish all day no matter where I went, although there were plenty of fish they seem inactive while deep picked up 3. I moved to 12-5 flo in the afternoon and in 3' of water and 2' of ice I was on like donkey kong! Fish started to dart in and hit my jig ( gold dart jig with a waxie) like an 18 wheeler. Non stop action even had a doubble hook up but lost the one on the slider. Some fish comming from the shallows were side ways and still hit. The hole I was fishing started clear and by the time I was done it was caked in silt. A tip for the new guys move a lot, although you can find fish not all groups are active, stay away from crowds, the more people the less likely fish are gonna turn on. When all else fails go shallow and sight fish, it's amazing how a white fish can hit and move the bait 2' and I couldent even feel the bite.

You can go to the lowrance web site & download it to a sd card or I believe Scheels in Appleton does it for free. Cableas in Green Bay may also upgrade them. I just upgraded mine.

Ice Depth: 18" Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 41° - 45° F
Fishing for walleyes was slow this past Saturday, fished from 7-dark and caught 1 whitefish, saw the guides pick up 3 nice walleyes in the morning. In the afternoon there must of have been 50+ guys on the ice and no fish seen caught. Ice near shore was still decent, lots of 4 wheelers etc. still driving around.
