Fox River DePere Voyager
MOON PHASE (3%)
if you are talking about Fox Point Landing yes the sea wall is very usable for tying up a boat after launching. Metro is not. I believe the Fair Grounds also has a seawall but I have not used it so not sure how friendly it is.

Don't put your boats away yet... LOL The bite on the Fox is going strong for Walleye. The hungry fish for sure are in a little shallower water. we have been working areas from the mouth of the river all the way to the Dam. Most of my action has been from 14' up to as shallow as 3' of water. Live bait.... who needs it! :-) This last couple trips my hot baits have been hair jigs (no minnow) and jigs with plastics specifically ringworm styles. You may be surprised how aggressive the fish have been on the ringworms. It has been a challenge to get the jig and plastic back on about 70% of the fish! One little subtle thing I am doing different and against the grain with my Jig and plastic combinations right now is I am going to 3/8 oz jigs even in the shallow waters as keeping that jig still on the bottom at times during the retrieve has made all the difference in getting bit. With a fair amount of current in the river a lighter jig tends to drift more in the current resulting in less bites it seems.
Even though I will be hunting Gun Deer opener weekend I am hoping to keep fishing for another couple weeks but Mother Nature will be the judge of that! LOL
It has been cool seeing so many LL guys on the water still and a big thanks for all the LL'ers that have called me up and jumped in the boat for Guide trips the last few weeks! It has been a lot of fun fishing!
Oh - FYI all the docks are out at all landings now!
Good luck to all the Deer Hunters. :-)

Fished the river from 172 bridge up to the dam. Found walleye and whitebass along the river channel edge in 10-18’ of water. Caught a few walleyes casting cranks by the dam at sunset, all other fish were caught on jig and minnows.
Was a fun evening/night of fishing and as much as I love ice fishing and can’t wait to get the jig rods and vexilar out, I am hoping for just another couple of weeks of this fast action open water fishing. Water temp was 37.6 when we left.
