FISHING REPORT
8/19/14 7:57 AM CST
Conditions: Sunny
I sandwiched the weekend with a couple very fun guide trips. Saturday and Sunday I had other activities already planned so no fishing. Crying

Friday we pulled cranks on and around the rocks south of Bay Shore. Had no problem getting bit on Flickers. Even a few Perch liked the Flickers. Started the AM on the rocks then as boat traffic increased we moved out deeper to 15-17 fow and drove the cranks down to about 10-12 deep and found more fish. Friday was a full day trip so we left our selves a couple fish short of a limit (Cool and ran out to the mud to see if we could get a couple personal Best Walleye. Ran harnesses out on inlines and were greeted by a PB 27" fish right out of the gate. Cool Managed a few more 23" to 25" and then were able to get a couple smaller to finish off the limit by the end of the trip.

Monday was a split 1/2 day trip... split by the heavy rain. LOL Ran out to fish rocks and had 5 in the boat and lost a few by the time the rain had reached us. I had a customer without any rain gear so we ran back to the dock and got there just ahead of the down pour!! Sat it out for about an hour maybe more until she cleared up then ran back out and drug the Flicker Shads around again to finish off the limit. We tossed back 3 over 23" and a couple shorts and unfortunately had to keep one that was 24" due to it literally swallowing a Flicker Shad!!!

We did encounter some floating weeds, I run a weed guard made by Teamwalleyebite that works AWESOME, go check it out. FYI I am not sponsored by them I just love the product and it works. If you want to try another little trick that works to keep your baits from fouling with floating weeds try putting an Offshore pinch pad form a snap weight (no weight) on your line about 8-10' in front of your crank. :-)

I will be heading up to fish the Northern Bay the next couple days but have openings for trips over the weekend. Cool

Heading out on the bay for the first time with my sister on saturday. Is it best to go off the west or east shore? I don't need anyones hot spots but being pointed to the right side of the bay would be helpful. We are going to be in a 14' aluminum boat so it will be weather/wave dependent.

Thanks

Boated 12 walleyes yesterday and lost 3 others in 5 hrs. Had a triple and 2 doubles fish ranged from 16 to 25 inches. With the water temps dropping with the cooler weather the bite was a little slow at first. Every day the fish reposition and once you get back on them they are hungry. Most fish are coming on harnesses but the bigger bites are coming on cranks. My last pass I switched to cranks and had a double 25 and 24 with another 24 coming later. Green and gold's have been a go to color working structure around deeper water. Pay attention to wind and current as the fish relate to it, as to where they position themselves. Good Luck

Ventured out with Kurt and Nate early Sunday Morning we were greeted with a strong Northwest wind. We slogged out to our first spot and setup with flicker shads in 19FOW 70' to 90' behind the boards. Our Efforts paid off as we landed 4 fish on our first pass. We wrapped it up at 11am after landing 10 fish and missing a few others. Great morning on the water, you can tell fall is in the air already.

My wife and kids and i took 15 walleye on friday night in 2 hours. We lost almost that many cuz my 6 year old would rather net than reel. He was pretty excited to say the least. He deserves it after the many trips of only getting a few fish this year. There werent any boats close to us, all came on flicker shads my 6 year old picked, 6 to 13 fow. We were out from 3 to 5 pm and my 19 month old daughter got fussy so we called it a day with 15 in the livewell. It rivals the best day ever for me on the bay. Speed didnt matter 1.3 to 2.5 caught fish 15 feet behind the board to 45 feet caught fish, they were stacked, doubles and triples almost constantly.

So "Lower" means "south". Geologically incorrect, in my estimation, but hey, no one is pinning a tin star on my vest and telling me to make the rules Big Smile Big Smile

Thank You for the clarification Scott. BTW, the local news uses the same terminology so it must be a local thing.

Looking to get out fishing on the bay this week, this is my first time trolling on the bay. Any info or tips would help a ton.

River-Chaser, That is what most people call from about Pensaukee Point east to Red River and south is kind of the line that people call the southern bay from the northern bay. Some may disagree but that is kind of the division of the shallow basin stained water down south from the northern deep, rocky, clear water of the northern bay. Hope this helps. Good Luck and HAVE FUN!!!!

This may be a stupid question, What exactly is considered the Lower Bay?

If we think of the lower Fox River is that portion between Winnebago and Green Bay; the upper Fox is that portion southwest of Puckaway. If I think of the Bay as an extension of the Fox River that flows northeast and out into Lk Mich then the Lower Bay should be the northeast portion between Door Couny and Upper Penninsula Michigan.

The Upper Penninsula, by the way is not called such because it is north of Lower michigan. The term Upper comes from the fact that the UP is situated in the upper portion of the natural water flow of the Great Lakes beginning with Lk Superior; while Lower Mich is situated down river along Lk Huron and Erie.

I am confused why Brown County is considered to be in the Lower Bay.

Spent a couple days fishing the oconto area. I anticipated a little better fishing for this area and time of year. Tried all different baits and presentations. Marked a fair amount of fish but only had a couple walleye for our efforts. Is anyone else fishing the area with any results?

Very bumpy out there this morning. We set up just west of the reef and pulled flickers 60-100' back. Caught one before a little sea sickness made us head in. Weeds were bad and hard to tell when baits were fouled. Good Luck out there and HAVE FUN Capt. Scott

I, would like to thank the guides for their posts. I didn't realize there was such controversy.

I guess I am a "Weekend Warrior" by your description. If I didn't have their updates weekly I would be much less successful and probably given up!

So, a sincere "Thank You".

We had a great day out on Friday. Had my youngest son and nephew out. Using cranks, we caught quite a few fish. Kept 7 good eaters for fish fry that night. Water was busy. People seemed to catch fish on crawler harness' too. Seems like these fish are setting up in smaller pods already. I could be wrong, but seemed that way as we had some doubles and a triple. Looked that way on the sonar too.

Good luck to all this week with some weather fronts coming through. Smile
