frdcs1209,

There are both walleyes and musky in the lower bay.  Launch from Metro and work the shipping channel edge, the area just north of Grassy Island and the humps in the lower bay all the way down to Sable Point.  There are fish there, along with plenty along the west shore and between the points off Suamico.  If the wind is bad, work the area in front of Kidney Island down towards the UWGB.  Capt Jerry

Check all the areas mentioned. No one will know where those fish are on Monday they are continually moving and so should you.

I did a 6 hour musky charter this morning with Chris and Kory.  They are musky veterans, both hoping to top the elusive 50" mark.  Unfortunately the fish won today, as we trolled Green Bay's best musky water without a strike.  Lots of green to brown coloring in the water.  The rain we've been dealing with for several weeks is playing havoc with our water clarity, but in my opinion, its not all due to runoff.  With the constant addition of more water the Bay is seeing more algae bloom than I can recall.  When the wind picks up it breaks up the algae, it turns to a brownish color, and sinks in the water column.  I notice clarity in the first 4-6" below the surface, then staining down further.  The walleyes and musky are in their normal haunts, we just need the rain to subside and let Mother Nature bring us back our clearer water.  Capt Jerry.

JPlass,

When trolling for musky, I generall use 1 or 2 oz inline weights.  These weights serve two purposes:  they catch weeds that are floating in the water and they get the baits to the desired depth.  I usually run 18-25' leads in water less than 8' and make the lead out to 35' in 8-12'.  Good luck!!

I spent the last 4 days fishing walleyes in the lower bay.  I can say the bite is tough, but walleyes can still be had!!  Thursday I took brothers Larry and Ed out, as they were in town for the weekend to chase walleyes and learn locations.  We fished 5 hours in the morning, with a good crankbait bite found among rocks in 10-15'.  #7 flicker minnows and flicker shads did the damage, with 18 beautiful walleyes coming to the net.  We released several in the 21-25" range, with the guys keeping a bunch of nice 16-19" eaters and a couple jumbo perch. 

Friday I spent a full day with Mark and crew, working the same areas that were successful Thursday, only to find water temps had dropped a few degrees and the bite not nearly as good as Thursday.  In 8 hours we caught 4 walleyes and 1 pike, along with some drum and kitties.  Very tough indeed!!

Saturday I spent the afternoon with new friends Brian and John, as we fished several spots.  We managed 5 walleyes and 1 jumbo perch.  Jigging shiver minnows in the rocks was our best approach.  Sunday was an instant replay, as Brian and John took home 5 more walleyes and 1 more perch.

I believe one of the factors which is making fishing tough is the constant algae bloom along with the staining from the algae as it breaks up.  The leftover brownish tint to the water is cutting visibility down to a foot or less.  Hopefull we'll get the typical fall conditions soon!!  Capt Jerry.
