I had a solo trip Friday with a mysterious stranger!!  I say this because he wished to remain unknown.  I even had to rub his face out of the pictures!!  We did manage to put some walleyes in the boat trolling #7 flicker minnows over rocks.  We also landed a 40-42" musky.  Mainly this trip was to show the mystery man how we use electronics to find fish.  We started around 2 mile, worked towards the shipping channel and made our way to the mud off Geanos Reef.  We marked many fish, but in 2.5 hours of trolling spinners we never had a bite.  The move to the rocks put us on some nice eaters, and we also lost a couple.

8/19/18. We launched from Bayshore @6:30am.  Fished crawler harnesses around 2 Mile  and Vincent’s reef for the first 2 hours. Caught 3 keeper size eyes and 4 shorties.  We then went across the bay and fished north of Geano’s for the next 4 hours.  Used 1 oz inline weights at various depths.  The fish seemed to be scattered in the water column.  Caught 4 more keeper size eyes and released 2 big fish, 26” & 27”.  Also caught about 5 or 6 big catfish, & 2 sheep.  

It was a nice day to be out on the water.

A ridiculous statement....sure there is good fishing on chequamagon, no reason to make a statement like that though. Make him put his money where his mouth is...or trip is free

Had a guide from Woodruff tell me yesterday that he will match or beat any guide on Green Bay for size and quantity of walleyes on Chequamegon Bay near Ashland any day of the week....Is that hogwash or are there some fish up there?

Hi there folks..... Well it has been a crazy few weeks of fishing.  Lots of water time and lots of action.  A couple slower days here and there but overall it has been lights out.  I did take my first skunk on Green Bay for the season (I believe) a week ago Monday.  We worked hard trolling and jigging and ended up with 2 Sheep and 1 Cat for our 8 hours of effort.  The fish won that day but the very next day we put an old fashioned whooping on them.  

For the most part I am still working many hand to hand combat techniques jigging and rigging to put lots of eaters in the boat.  Then moving to some trolling and a little jigging for the bigger fish in other areas.  I did make a couple runs up to the Sturgeon Bay area over the last week and had great results.  It was a nice change of pace to look at some different water.  

FYI when I have been trolling I have stuck with Cranks ... and bigger cranks for the most part.  #11 Flicker Minnows and DHJ 12's both have a nice long profile and seem to be working for me.  

My tip of the week..... or month I guess since I missed a few weeks.... Be nice!  At the landing in the morning or coming off the water.... Be nice.  If a fellow boater is having issues loading and unloading don't "Go off on them" Be nice and give the a hand.   When you are on the water jigging or trolling etc... be nice.  Pay attention to your surroundings but if someone cuts you off don't "Go Off on them" just be nice and you make the adjustment.   We are all in this to share in and enjoy our time on the water so do just that don't get angry just be nice.  It will pay dividends later.  

I am pretty busy the next week again but have some openings the last week in August and several open dates in September.  I am going to begin looking to do some more fishing up in Northern Door county also and hopefully some night trips in September up there looking for big fish action.  Give me a call to pick a date!!  

I hope everyone gets out to enjoy the fishing!
