After taking a little time away from the walleyes the end of July to chase salmon and trout. I’ve been back chasing walleyes the last 10 days up and down the Door County Peninsula.

The first part of the month provided some consistent winds, which had the fish setting up on specific pieces of structure in 12-40 feet of water throughout Door County. The last 2-3 days the winds and currents have constantly been switching, setting up the best bite in the southern end of the county. Each day I’ve been marking fish on and off the structure, but they all haven’t been active. The key has been staying on the move to locate the active fish. Some days this requires a lot of traveling on the water. Jigging ripping raps, shiver minnows, and jig and plastics, along with trolling crawler harnesses and crankbaits, have all been putting fish in the boat.

Each day the fish seem to want a little something different, so being versatile and switching up your presentionns will help you be more successful.

As we work are way through the month of August and into September, this walleye bite will only get more consistent.

If you’re looking to get out and enjoy some of the great fishing Door County has to offer, now is a great time!

I still have a few openings available in August and September to get out on this world class fishery.

Contact me at the number below for details and availability. You can also follow us on Facebook at the link below for up to date reports.

Tight lines and good fishing to all!!!

Overall, the spring walleye bite in Door County this year has been fantastic, but the last 10-14 days has been a roller coaster ride. With all the easterly winds and drastic temperature changes the fish have scattered a bit. The key has been finding warmer pockets of water to find the most active fish, and focusing in on these areas.

The afternoon and evening bite will improve with the warmer stable temps in the forecast the next couple of weeks. I still have a few openings available during the week if you are looking to get in on some world class walleye fishing. 

I also still have a few prime dates available in August and September for trophy walleyes in Door County.  These dates traditionally fill fast. 

Please contact me at the number below, with any questions you might have regarding these trophy walleye trips.

As the ice continues to move around on Green Bay, the waters of Door County will soon be fully fishable.


The walleye bite has already started on the west shore, and it won’t be long before the Door Peninsula starts giving up giant Green Bay walleyes. I still have some prime dates available for April and May if anyone is looking to get in on this world class walleye fishing.

Tight lines and good fishing!!!


Attached are just a few giants caught last year.

 Hello everyone

Just wanted to take this time to do a fall fishing wrap up. The boat has been officially put to sleep, and is peacefully resting until 2017.


I’d like to start out by thanking everyone that fished with me this year. It was great getting out on the water with all the great friends, both new and old. Being able to educate, and put smiles on people faces is what has been so fulfilling to me each year. I’m already looking forward to next year.

The late summer, early fall put an exclamation point on the 2016 fishing season. Many fish were caught from the Fox River in Green Bay, north to Washington Island, and everywhere in between. I know I sound like a broken record when I say this, but playing the wind, locating bait fish, and finding active schools of fish, was the key to my success.

Finding bait fish was not much of a problem this year on the bay of Green Bay, but finding out what the fish wanted was a challenge some days. We jigged and/or trolled depending on the mood of the fish, the wind and the direction played a big part in presenting the baits properly.

Most days this fall we jigged and trolled in 12-40 feet of water. Each day the fish were in a little different area, around different pieces of structure. So, using the side scan, and down scan on my Lowrance electronics, helped me locate these fish quickly. Some areas we would only fish 10-15 minutes, and if we didn’t get any bites, we were off to the next spot. When we found the honey hole, you knew it! Hooking up with multiple fish while trolling crankbaits or crawler harnesses, and then going back and jigging for these fish with plastics like the Kalins jerk minnow, or Moonshine shiver minnow were just a couple of baits that worked for me and my clients.

It was nice that mother nature cooperated most of the fall. She did present a few windy days, but overall the weather was fantastic! I can’t remember the last time I fished in a t shirt the week of Thanksgiving.

I am currently booking for 2017, and some dates in the spring and late summer are starting to fill up, bit there are plenty of prime dates still available.

Also, I’m currently running a special until December 31,2016 that takes $100 off any trip booked with a paid deposit in 2017.

Lastly, if you’re looking for that stocking stuffer for the holidays, I do have gift certificates available. These gift certificates never expire, and that person will be able to book their trip when it’s convenient for them.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at the info below, and I will be more than happy to answer them for you.

I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday!

Ran a couple night excursions in DC last week Tuesday and Thursday.  Fishing was slow but we managed 5-6 bites and evening  (5 hours fishing) Biggest only 26" but it was Tammy's PB.  

The fall bite will improve as the water temps stabilize a bit.  I will be booking fo at least the next month yet. (Guy has to get some Deer Hunting in LOL)  Give me a call to set something up.
