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.
