Will be coming up on 8-28-14 to do some camping and walleye fishing with wife. We will be at Potawatomi State Park. I lived in Sturgeon Bay in the 80s for 7 yrs and worked at Bay Ship but back then was only fishing smallies. Would like to try for walleye but could use some advise on possible areas this time of yr and techniques. Thank-you

for 3 to 4 lb. smallies this is a place u have to check out. their is a reason bassmaster ranked this #1 in the states. if u are out here u can throw a topwater in the morning over rock piles if it is windy u can use reaction baits (crankbaits,spinnerbaits)and if it is calm use your electronics to locate schools and throw a drop shot or tube jig. TIGHTLINES AND DONT LOSE YOUR LOWER UNIT ON A ROCKPILE

What kind of scale are you weighing those 5# smallies on? Seem big for this time of year in Little Sturgeon.

Not many reports here. I fish this occasionally, but coming over from the Shawano area makes it a bit of a drive. Was wondering how the bite has been for smallies and walleyes.

Not asking for techniques, hot lures, or secret spots. Just wondering if Little Sturgeon Bay has been producing. I have other spots to fish locally for other things if things haven't been good.

I have only a 14' boat with a 7 horse motor, so I do not wander out into big water. Just enjoy a trip up here about once a year to hit up some big smallies and maybe a couple walleye.

Planning to get out there tomorrow morning, so any new would be appreciated.

Thanks for the assist.

got out Saturday for a few hours. A little breezy! trolled along the shore from Henderson's south and got a big 24" sheephead. The wind was blowing right, so we drifted and casted spinnerbaits toward shore on our way back. Good decision on my part as on my third cast I hooked this beauty. Four good jumps including one at boatside! First time I've had a big one grab some air, so that was pretty cool.

I was up there Tuesday and Wednesday last week. Nothing but gobies while fishing along the shore past Hendersons with spinner rig/crawler and one sheep while trolling a stickbait. Wednesday was cool (to say the least) and windy, so we fished the shoreline near the boat launch and worked our way back into that little bay by squaw island casting spinner baits. Wound up with a few small pike and a few decent bass, including a surprise largemouth. A couple of our fish did come near docks.

Do the smallies hide under docks much

Smallmouth tips - I would say start shallow and work your way deeper until you find fish. Long casts. East side of Little Sturgeon is quite rocky. If you find the occasional weed even better. Use a slip bobber to suspend a leech or crawler off the bottom to keep away from gobies. Cast with dark senko wacky worms with no additional weight - working across bottom. Tube jigs worked along bottom, lighter jig heads avoid hangups. Try a top water or spinner bait to see if they are more active. Good luck!
