Then why are you asking on a link fir the bay?
Green Bay/Lower Bay, Brown County
Gk , we can hold your hand if need be.just check out the eagle river chamber of commerce website or boulder junction one.drive up to cty b and head west from land o lakes you will find everything you need within 30 minutes of that little town guranteed.meanwhile back to green bay fishing.
Would anyone care to share how the bite has been in the lower bay. Weather permitting I am going tomorrow morning. Particularly wanting to know if anyone is getting fish on Frying Pan, Dead Horse, or U-Bay. Only make it over a couple times per year at most, so hoping for a little insight to increase odds of success. PM is on and will gladly report back my results.

I did an afternoon trip yesterday on the lower bay with good friend Larry and his two son-in-laws. We started in 7-10', working #7 flicker shad and minnow cranks in various colors. The first hour, with little wind, we caught several drum, catfish and a couple pike up to 35", all of which were released. A breeze came up from the SE and the bite started. We put around 30 walleyes in the boat for the rest of the trip, but many were under 15". At around 5:30 the seas went flat again and the bite stopped. The guys took home 8 nice eaters and had a great trip.
I still have a couple of openings the 4th of July week if anyone is interested in a trip. Capt Jerry

6/11/18. Fished out of metro. Had strong, 10-15 mph easterly winds, so I stayed along the east shore. Trolled with flicker shads and minnows. Got one nice 33” northern (released), 3 eater walleye and a couple of cats & sheep. Had to clean lines often; lots and lots of cotton.

Sunday I spent the morning with new friends Pete and Andy cruising the lower bay, looking for eater-sized walleyes. We fished several areas before finding a nice school of eaters. We used flicker shad and minnows size 7, working the school for a nice bunch of 17-20" fish. With NE winds up to 15-20 mph we had difficulty working baits smoothly without surge through the area, so I tried to go sideways with the wind as much as possible to ease the surge. Had the guide not flipped #10 out of the net the guys would have taken their limit!! Nice move guide!! Either way, the Phillip and Andy had a great trip!!
I have a few openings 4th of July week and into July/August if anyone is looking for a trip. Capt Jerry.

Fishing seems to have slowed a bit from what it was but there are still fish around. Storms and winds seem to mess things up sometimes. Staying mobile and hitting differant areas until active fish are found has been key. Alot of sheapshead to contend with and getting enough cotton on the lines that you could make a pillow! Lol! Running cranks in 5-11 fow has still been working.
2 weekends ago I went out fishing and had great success trolling shads and minnows away from the packs of boats in 15 ft of water, baits down 7 feet or so. We launched from Bayshore. Color didn't seem to matter.
I had a question though. Of the 20+ eyes we boated, 3 still had eggs (we released them obviously). Is that normal? I never remember catching eyes with eggs that late in the season. I know things were delayed with the ice, but I would've expected all the fish to be spawned out. Thoughts?
