Just a quick report for anyone thinking about trying to ice fish on Green Bay soon.  It looks to be about a couple weeks away before we get any sort of fishable ice.  I checked most popular spots on the East shore yesterday before the snow.  Down in the lower part of U bay the ice went all the way out to the channel in some spots.  I didn't check thickness, but spots I looked at were very rough and looked pretty sketchy yet.  North of that there was anywhere from 50 yards of ice from shore to maybe a quarter mile or so of ice off shore.  A lot of open water moving around out there yet.  Still have several days of relatively high winds in the extended forecast as well.  Not worth it right now as all it takes is one good gust of wind and you could be on a floating iceberg out to sea.  Praying for brutally cold windless nights in the near future!  I think I say it every year, but all I want for Christmas is good fishable ice.  Tight lines and happy holidays everyone.

I would like to say thanks to Lake-Link, their staff, the posters here and my sponsors for supporting me in 2017. It was truly a memorable year, with out of this world fishing and meeting many great people.  I am offering $50 off on a half day trip and $100 off on a full day trip to anyone who books a trip with me for 2018 through this site, effective until Dec 25th of this year.  A trip on the water for your loved one is a great Christmas gift.  The way the fish was this year on Green Bay, it is sure to create a special memory!  Bring on 2018, warm weather and spring!!  Merry Christmas and Happy New YEar everyone!!  Capt Jerry.

Fishing Report 


If you want to get out there walleye fishing has been great as evidenced by previous threads as well. The same techniques I use in my YarCraft in the spring are working now jigs and Plastic/ Minnow too. Just look down a few post for more details if needed. Hand warmers are more than worth the cost when it gets so cold! 

Warm weather windows are great. Cold forecasts- pick low wind days for sure .

Spring Trips begin as soon as I can get on the water and some years that is in February like this year!

Heated garages are really nice with getting out this time of year if you are lucky to have one for your boat once off water so the motor can drain. 

I will be at the Wisconsin Sport Show in March as a vendor and doing a clinic on walleye jigging and other non trolling techniques I love to teach my clients when we fish.  There are a lot of great fisherman out there that I meet. Everybody of water is different. Fishing with a guide is a very worth while opportunity. 

Ice Fishing:The shallow water white fish bite( near shore) will be starting soon and can score limits with short walks out on Green Bay. I love ice fishing!

I made the decision to put the boat away until April, with significantly colder temperatures moving in later this week.  The bite on the river is simply fantastic, as described by many here!!  Vertical jigging 3/8 oz jig/GULP or ringworm combos was good, as were vertical jigging spoons, Rippin' Raps, and jigging Rapalas.  I fished with friends Saturday and we had over 30 fish in a couple hours, releasing all.  We controlled drifted just south of the pack, as there were easily 30-40 boats there Saturday.  There are 1-2 more days of decent weather, so get out there and enjoy the bite!!  Capt Jerry.

The gate to get to the ramps is locked for the year. That was the report from my friend that walks his dog there.

I did a combination walleye/musky trip Monday, spending most of the time trolling cranks for musky.  We had had one solid rip, with a big musky that was on for about 15 seconds and then managed to throw the crank!  Tough break, as this type of fishing is like big game hunting where opportunities are at a premium with a shot at huge fish.  Later, we put the trolling gear down and pitched jig/ringworm combos and blade baits on structure.  We put 12 walleyes in the boat over a 2 hour period, calling it a day when the call of warm food won us over.  The bite is still good for walleyes, and the musky season ends Nov 30th, if anyone is looking for a trip.  Capt Jerry.
