Have to post after talking with buddies who fished the west side. We got a late start out of Chaudoir's after finding out the launch at Bayshore was packed  Sat. am., so we  headed north. Dragged plugs for two hours in 12-22 feet of water marking fish but catching none. The 46 degree water meant my token crawler harness went untouched but I had to try. Turns out crawlers were the ticket in the lower Bay out of Suamico where the temps were 60. What a difference some chop with warmer temps were from the clear cold stuff to the north. They sorted thru smaller fish but found keepers while we got skunked.

The pic shows Perch king with a massive sheepshead he caught on the plug he dragged for a while. Small walleyes bit our crawler harnesses too from 8-12noon on Saturday north of the launch. The wind whipped up making the sledding tough, then the wind shifted back and calmed down a bit. Hand held bottom bouncers worked best in the bigger waves.

Out last night 6-8pm. Trolled north from shoemaker point in 16-20 fow. Went 1-1, 21" walleye. SR-7 Silver and Black. 50 feet behind board. 1.7mph SOG. Weather conditions on the bay were much better than I expected given the breeze on shore. Beautiful evening on the water. Surface temps were 58-60 degrees. I hope to be back out in the area soon!

As Slay n Em said, it was tough sleddin out there this past weekend.

This is a multi day report. We had to bounce around a bit to get what we got, and it was tough! Sorry no B.S, but no pictures.

Thurday 4/30/2015 launched at the Quarry Couny park on the North side of Sturgeon Bay. Fished all over Sturgeon Bay with two boats. The best location was right where the Bay necks down to the shipping channel at the green sign, you know where I am talking about right. In 25' of water between the two boats, we caugh 5 fish, ranging in size from 27" to 30". Yes nice fish, we were rigging 6" Sucker's on a short 3' leader.

Friday 5/1/2015 was about the same. Launched at the Quarry again. Couldn't get anything to happen in Sturgeon Bay, Fished Green Bay, fished the shoreline break from the Quarry north 2-3 miles, nothing. Then fished the shoreline break in 8-12' of water from Sherwood Point to Sand Bay. Pulling spinners with Crawlers, we again were able to boat 5 fish. 4 were between 20"-26", and again pulled another 30". We were a bit frustrated, really 10 fish.

Saturday 5/2/2-15, again we laucnhed at the Quarry. We headeed across the bay to the mouth of the Peshtigo. Targeted the same 8-12 of water, the water ont the west side of the bay was 54 degrees verse the 46 stuff on the east side. Pulled spinners with crawlers. Between Nay Shore COunty Park and hte mouth of the Peshtigo, we boated 6 fish, all under 22". By 11:00 AM it had shut down. Cruised the shoreline and fished from the Oconto River North to Bay SHore County Park, boated 5 more under 20 inches. Again pullign spinners.

Sunday 5/2/2015, only had a couple hours in the morning to fish. Launched at the Quarry, fished the 10' breakline from Sherwood Point to Sand Bay. Today I caught 3 nice 19 & 20 inch smallies.

Needless to say I was beginnign to question whether I knew what i was doing or not. Talked to a few others who werre having similar luck to what Iwas having. Some guys got fish most didn't. If you diod congrats to you it was tough.

I made some guys day, when I came in for the day Sunday, another guys was launching his boat, I asked if he wanted some Sucker Minnows, he said he just bought soem but sure. I bet he get 10 dozen nice 5-6" Sucker minnows from me. Have a great day buddy.
