Hello friends, what a week it been! Filmed a killer show with Larry Smith Outdoors this last week rip jigging & trolling Sturgeon Bay, Wi. Let me tell you what a blast......! The rip jigging technique has been around for awhile developed by other guides that I was able to learn the last few year, just an incredible method of fishing walleyes to say the least!! Trolling for walleyes can be an effective tool in locating walleyes but once you zero in on a batch of active walleyes standby for thump pounding action hitting your rod!!

This Northeast wind can stop anytime now! and switch to something southerly! Geez fishing in 2-4 footers all week has taken a toll on my body. Fishing continues to go strong especially early in the week we had days with double & triples and big walleyes too! Many 26-28 inch walleyes and a few tipping that 30 inch mark! wooohoo! Berkley flicker minnows anything purple has been really good behind a offshore planner board trolling in 15-20 feet of water.

Rip jigging has been good as well not the numbers we get trolling but well worth the money of mr. walleye crushing that rod! Rapala ripping raps in #6 have been deadly working shoreline breaks targeting 18- 25 feet of water casting towards shore ripping the bait back towards you.

If you are interested in learning how to troll or rip jig, casting hard baits please set a fishing trip to learn some of these exciting techniques and catch some walleyes & bass Too!!

From the Green Bay Trophy Fishing Desk have a great week - tight lines!

Thank you to those that offered information on where the best spot to launch from would be to start our search for eyes in SB. Thanks to you we were able to dial in and get a few. Here is the biggest of the night. Weather on Friday was great as the winds died resulting in flat water, clear starry sky's and a comfortable temp.

Special thanks to Josh Berken, he spent 30 minutes on the phone with me talking Green Bay and all things walleye. Thanks again Josh.

20-25 fow Husky jerks and reef runners. All custom colors but dark profile head and tail with bright centers. Just fast enough to get action out of the lure, current made speeds different based on direction of the troll as there were zero waves.

Tight lines all.

Heh Rick James

Depending on stage of bass spawn, or spawned out , your best bet for spawning bass probably Little Sturgeon Bay Launch. After that I would prefer to launch out of Stone Quarry County Park launch, being farther north of Sturgeon Bay , and is a newer and more strategically placed launch with many options South or North for that time of year. Listen to the weekly fish reports from Howie's Bait Shop starting next week I believe . Monitor the reports during and after the Sturgeon Bay Bass tournament the weekend after Mother's Day . 200 boats with big money will be for the taking, but may not give out much info during the tournament, if you know what I mean !

I personally would stay at the Square Rigger lodge in JACKSONPORT ! Its very clean, has the best sand beach in Door Co. and is very reasonable ! Its on the Lake Michigan side across from Stone Quarry Park , but only 15 minutes away by county hwy that crosses over , I believe hwy A (CHECK MAP )

Mikes Tavern across from motel , has good food and friendly and affordable libations ! Private message me if you need more info .

Big walleyes hitting on large suckers being drug. Caught walleye while floating by bridge under construction and 2 other monsters at Lake Michigan Entrance. Not the best fishing with bite decreasing as rain started.

Hey guys, new here but certainly not new to fishing. I recently moved to the Midwest from upstate New York a couple years ago. Since getting here I've been dying for a chance to fish Sturgeon Bay small mouths, I'm primarily a bass guy.

I'm headed up with a buddy for a three-day weekend starting June 3rd for my first try at them. I'm guessing the fish will either be in the peak of the spawn or the tail end of it?

Anyone have suggestions on the best boat launch I should be using? Also I'd love to hear suggestions on a reasonably priced hotel that's close to decent food and/or a good bar?

Thanks for the help guys!!

Big fish bite continues on Green Bay. These post spawn fish are hungry and a blast to catch. Numerous fish in the 27-29 inch range with an occasional 30 plus inch fish. I have openings this week Tuesday through Friday. Also offering night trips. Capt.Scott

Strong Northeast winds the last few days made fishing difficult especially with boat control however we managed to find fish each day, today being really great! Many doubles and a few triples walleye were certainly taking advantage of the rough water to feed today! Our program was simple trolling flicker minnows and anything with purple in them worked, working 20 feet of water trolling south with the BIG WAVES!! We tried a drift rip jigging and just couldn't manage the boat to well with some rollers 4 feet plus. Bob 73 years young today caught a 29 1/2 inch walleye his biggest to date, the expressions he made and joy he felt was incredible, truly heartfelt! Bobs experience today and sharing stories today was awesome making wonderful memories that I certainly will never forget!

Henderson point is along way from the quarry launch! Its the first point to the south as you come out of Little Sturgeon Bay.About 12 miles south of the quarry launch. And Peninsula state park is 16 miles to the north of the quarry launch, are you referring to Potawatomi state park in Sawyer Harbor? If you want to fish Hendersons Little Sturgeon Bay launch is very close and protected.

If your dealing with NE winds then Stone Quarry Park is the place where u wanna launch from, as it is on the east side of the ship canal. The waves will be minimum along that shoreline, versus the west side by Pennisula Pk . You might want to pick up that book "Fishing The Door " , as it has good info, maps, suggestions etc., where to target the different species fish in Door County !

Again Good Luck
