FISHING REPORT

fished the past couple days with Lynn Niklasch, mostly trolling spinner rigs. My buddy Tom and i boated 34 eyes in two solid days of fishing. 30 of them were 27-29". all these were released. Caught several jigging Echotail blades. Hot bait was the Teddy Cat. Stayed at Motel 57 in SB. What a retro HOOT! Pink flamingos in the front yard, pink flamingos on the glasses in the room. disappointed to turn on the flat screen and see 50 channels, of course, having the Weather Channel is better than trying to dial the forecast on an AM radio or choose between two grainy channels on a 13" B/W TV Big Smile Great to get back to the Door again, educate some eyes and wolf a big burger at Beach Harbor. Highlight was having four boards go back at once and catch all four for quick CPR!

As a quick follow up on my lost board. Less than 12 hours after having it snapped off of my rod by a potential world record walleye, I received a call from none other than Dale Stroschein of Sandy Bay Resort and freshwater fishing hall of fame saying he had found my board and still attached to the board was....yes you guessed it, a catfish. Tounge Out Thanks again Dale, you are truly a stand up guy! Tony

Fished out of Rileys Bay last night. Picked up a mixed bag off of flicker shads 55-70 ft behind the boards in 15-25fow. To be honest, I never even paid any attention to water temps. Color didn't seem to matter as much as depth. Smallmouths, walleyes, a northern and plenty of goats. Ended up losing a board with my name and number on it. Would love to get it back! If you find it please message or call me. Tight lines!

I was wondering if the salmon started staging up yet in front of Algoma or Kewaunee? Thinking of coming up Sept 18th.

Fishmeister, Try Larsons Reef with jigs or bottom bouncers with spinner rigs. Too much structure change to really troll effectively. Hope this helps.

Hi I got a question for everyone. Labor Day weekend I'm gonna be fishing around the sturgeon bay area for the first time. Looking to get on some smallmouth. Does anyone have any advice on where to find them this time of year? In the channel, or little sturgeon bay? How deep are they now? Thanks alot in advance.

Fished this morning and it was our first time ever trolling the Sturgeon bay area. Wasn't sure where to go but settled on Henderson's pt and that whole north bank. Trolled from 6:15 ish-10 in 25-35 FOW. Caught a TON of sheeps, 2 catfish, some gobys, and 0 walleye. Had one fish take the board about a foot under and snapped right away. If anyone has and tips on locating these walleyes any time of year or catch walleye in the Stugeon bay area that would be most awesome!! Good luck and stay safe out there!!Smile

If your friend is fishing with him this weekend, he should be able to hook you up on where to go. Good Luck.

Thanks birddog. Trust me I wanted to get a guide but unfortunately finances right now just can't swing it. I talked with a buddy who is fishing with that guide this weekend. We plan to try again next summer / with him. This year is a budget trip. Thinking of trying Larson's reef trolling. We're limited where we can go. Only got a v hull 14 foot. Lead core rods and live bait gear. I'm a first mate on a salmon charter boat out of Racine so I got all the good gear but limited on where due to smaller boat. Any tips would be good for Henderson point Larson's reef area I guess. Thanks guys!! Good fishing

Fishmeister JR, you should just hire a guide for a half day. you will learn more in a half day with someone who knows whats going on then if you fished steady for a month. Lynn Niklasch from Fishinpal guide service stays in Door County for the entire month of August he usually has a good handle on what and where.

Good luck

Fishing Report 8-19-2015 Walleye fishing remains to be average to good with a mix of weather patterns to contend with lately hot, cold, south wind north wind? It's usually a new situation everyday scattering walleyes. We have been networking sharing info with our guides & other guides as well to try and stay on fish the best we can with the conditions in front of us. We are excited about fall being around the corner for some true trophy walleyes! Love those fat big belly toothy monsters who's appetite becomes fierce during fall transition time!! Berkley flicker minnows most colors 50-90 ft behind offshore planner boards have been getting it done lately trolling at a speed of 1.7-1.9 mph Special thanks to my groups this last past weekend we had a blast sharing stories and catching some beautiful eyes.
