Every destination has its one claim to fame. Ours is fishing, especially Walleye fishing off the western shore of the Bay of Green Bay in Oconto County. We describe it this way: there are two premier Walleye fisheries in the US: one is Lake Erie, and the other is right here on the Bay of Green Bay. We have testimonial after testimonial from pros and amateurs alike attesting to the "great" fishing here. Many Lake Michigan walleyes are absolutely huge, and when the summertime bite gets going, especially in the Bay of Green Bay, expect numbers of them.
