What is depth water near by shore since im gotta try wader fishing?
Little Sturgeon Bay, Door County
MOON PHASE (1%)
Went out this AM with a Sturgeon Bay Guide named Jon Sowl. We got our limit (10 walleyes) before noon-4 were perfect eaters around 18 " and the others were fat pigs 21-26 ". All were post spawn.
We planned on jigging a little but we got lazy and picked everything up trolling both flat line and side boards, mostly flicker shads, no particular color
Sowl is pretty knowledgeable and changed things around until we started hitting fish. He doesn't advertise much but has a Facebook page .
From Clafflin Point north out to the big bay it is all blown in pack ice as out as far as I could see. All points south to the bottom of LS the ice is "solid" as of Tuesday. I did not walk out so I don't know how good the ice is. Nobody was fishing.
50 yards to the left of the pic is the Hideaway bar just to give you the angle you are looking from.
Checked out ice conditions yesterday. Any ice that is left is unsafe. Its appears that the the wind cracked up the ice, and any that is remaining, is large kegs that froze together. It still looks like Little Sturgeon, Rileys and sand bay are frozen like this. But Unsafe. Deeper waters outside the bays,like Larsen reef, are wide open. Bring on open water!
