Do the walleye migrate north at this time of year? Been searching for them for the last month and half. Found bass, trout, salmon and northern, but no walleye. Has anyone been catching any walleye up here lately? Would like to get out one more time before putting the boat away. Please pm me if you can offer any advice. Thank you.

Fishing for Smallmouth Bass continues to go strong fishing around the peninsula and also around the Islands. We have been fishing both live bait rigs along with throwing artificials at them. While the live bait rigs are catching many fish it has been so much fun catching fish on the artificials. We have been throwing blade baits along with the Rippin Rap from Rapala and it is a blast when they hit those baits. With November underway now I will soon be strictly fishing for Walleyes in Little Bay De Noc but not before I chase after the Bass here in Door County for a couple more weeks. Good Luck fishing and as always be safe.

Headed up to Egg Harbor last night with Oldnewbie. What a great time. We caught walleyes from 21"-28" with the average being around the 25" mark. Newbie broke his personally best landing the biggest fish of the evening just before sunset. Couple pics of a few doubles we picked up.

Put probably close to 30 miles on the boat last night finding active fish but once we did it was game on. All fish were caught and RELEASED working rock piles in and around 20-30 FOW. Only saw one other boat fishing yesterday. I will be making this trip again before the year is out, still looking to get that 30" in the boat this year. Cool

Door County is still offering fantastic opportunities for Walleyes targeting off shore structure. Some days we are catching good numbers of fish with other days having to work harder and move around to find active fish. I am still catching fish on both crawler harnesses and crank bait presentations some days the fish react better to crawlers other days no problem catching fish on cranks. Good Luck and as always be safe.

Decided to try the northern Door County reefs for walleyes on Tuesday. A change of pace from salmon. Caught a little of everything. Fished salmon yesterday out of Baileys Harbor. 4 for 6. No real pattern.

North /south reef is south of sturgeon bay.Its small reef but almost always holds eyes. You guys looking for BIG walleyes you need to head north of the canal/sturgeon bay and checkout hat island,green island,chamber island and horseshoe reef area,sister shoals. Typically run 1oz 40/40 spinners at 1.3mph in deeper water(20fow)I also vary weight up to 3oz if in 50fow or more. Dont overlook shallow water under 20fow such area as horshoe and sister. good luck

Oldnewbie: I was up that by Castaways the other day checking things out, and did notice that the water temps did go up about 3-4 degrees since the last time we were up there catching fish and that a lot of floating muck/weeds were present. Didn't mark as many fish as we did a week ago either

I think once the temps cool down again, the fish will move back in there. It'll be nice too when the floating debris is gone too so the boards run nicer.

I fished on Larsens on Sat & Sun . Didn't limit out but got some nice ones pulling spinners . Switched to cranks on & off . Only got sheep on cranks . Also tried North/South and got 3 on spinners . All smaller fish . Good 21 -22 " fish on north/south . The bigger ones came from Larsens . Was fishing all by myself til my net started flying . All of a suddeen I had 4 other boats on top of me . Talked to one of them (a guide) at the ramp (no names) .Was not very friendly at all . I didn't want your program pal , just wanted to compare notes . Next time I won't even say Hi. Plenty of fish in the bay for everyone . Don't knock me off the fish I found .

Dwombat,

You could try at Bayshore Park. There is a small breakwall around the launch.

woops, I din't see this was teh Dorrcounty - green bay thread.

ok how about the stone quarry park on the north side of Sturgeon Bay where it opens into Green Bay.

Spent a couple hours looking for fish on Larson's. Didnt mark much so went toward Oconto. About 10 minutes after getting set up,I had a fish on. Ended up being a 15#+ cat. When removing the hook from the fish, i ended up with the other hook in my thumb. At the ER now. Thinking about heading north after this. Hopefully find a couple walleye befote the day is over.

Hey guys I just moved here and am wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction for some shore fishing. Don't need your secret spot but just anywhere that I can pull in my car and relax for a bit.

I fished Monument shoals and larsens Saturday.. nothing but sheep and gobies. Tried harnesses and cranks. Shallow and deep. Where have all the fish gone ? Is anyone catching anything besides the guides ?

Fished Friday afternoon into dark out by Castaway's. Between 20-30 ft. of water. Marked fish all the way down the shore line but the only hungry fish seemed to be a lonely cat. Tried crawler harnesses in all different depths. Switched over to cranks then back to harnesses. I'm a little puzzled because for the 2 weeks prior we were catching some nice fat walleye with empty stomachs.

Is this normal for this time of year? Are they getting ready for the fall craziness, or are they just in deeper water? I'm seeing quite a few people that are having the same luck. Then I hear reports of people doing well in this area, but every time I've been up here in the last 2 weeks I get the same story from other fisherman.

Headed up to try Larsen's reef again tomorrow morning. Hoping to see a couple walleye. If anyone has any tips, I'm all ears. Thanks in advance.
