Was out all day. Not a single fish. Trolled for muskies. Tournament today. Lots of boats. Didnt see a single fish caught. Way to rough to head out in the bay.

Thursday afternoon I had a trip with new friend Dick S, as we searched for walleyes in the lower bay. With a couple passes in some of my favorite walleye areas we decided to head to the river. In the end, it was frustrating, as we marked many fish but simply couldn't get them to bite, netting only 2 walleyes. Friday I met Brian, Bill, and Bob at Metro launch to try the lower bay again. This time the fish were on, with 17 walleyes hitting the net along with 1 pike and several sheephead. We also had a couple musky bites which broke off. 3 walleyes were in the 23-26" range and were released. Hot cranks were Flicker Shad 5's and 7's, with green and gold patterns the best.
I have a couple openings for next week on Tuesday and Wedneday if anyone is looking for a trip. Capt Jerry

I only get up to the bay 2 times a year. Smaller boat and limited time doesn't leave all that much time to drive around and watch electronics for hours on end. You guys that get to fish this awesome fishery have it made. Whole trolling we have electronics blasting away. Down and side. This past weekend the wi d sucked for our little boats.

Took a long weekend up on the bay with limited success. We were targeting walleye 90% of the time. Got up on Friday early afternoon and went right to bay shore to start. 2 boats 4 guys. Both16 footers. Caught some eyes but not many. Ended up catching (so lucky) my first musky at or above 50" ???? ended the night just after dark. Humbled. Went to bay shore again on Saturday morning. Whole day was very slow no matter where we went in that area. 45 minutes before sunset the switch got flipped on MY side of the boat for some reason. Caught a few walleyes a dandy smallmouth and a big kitty. Others guys in other boat couldn't get them to bite. We trolled both days the entire time. Fished from 4- 18ish fow. Waves were a little big for us to get out much deeper and still have boat control. Went to oconto today and I caught a skunk. My partner got 1 walleye and other boat landed a few pike. I used mostly salmos, flickers and some different varieties of rapalas. Salmos took ALL fish on my side of the boat. Parter was all over the board with crankbaits. Biggest eye was 26. You guides sure make it look a heck of a lot easier than it is out there. This lure was our best lure by far.

fishing was good last night we ended up with 8 eyes in 3 hours. Running smaller cranks worked best.
We did loose a board last night, it was an orange walleye board it had a glowstick rubberbanded to it. If anyone finds it please call me (920)360-9850.

I had the pleasure of guiding John and Brad for two days on the Bay. We spent over 15 hours trolling for musky, with only 3 rips and no fish during that time. Both days, after limited action, the guys decided they wanted to chase walleyes. Great decision!! We put 12 walleyes in the boat in 80 minutes one day and 14 walleyes in 2.5 hours the next!! We released several big fish, including a couple in the 27-28" range. The guys were able to take home some great eaters.
I have a few days open in October and several in November. The walleye action is outstanding and the musky will improve with cooling water temperatures. Capt Jerry.
