I install and remove seasonal piers for a living in door county. I lived on rileys pt. for 7 yrs.  I have never seen a pier on the bay side of rileys pt. If you put a seasonal pier in off rileys make sure its set at least 5 feet off the water and only from memorial day to labor day.  Better yet rent a slip/dock on the rileys pt. channel  !

I'm located down in Little sturgeon facing Northeast and we have seen water rise 2 feet along with decent waves during storms.  An unprotected Riley's point is much worse.  Besides that the depth is shallow surrounding the point.  I've been up there since 1983 and have rarely if ever seen a dock out on the point.  Henderson's point on south has a few docks but they are big docks and 5-6 feet above the water line.  Even at that height they are playing with fire.  Keep in mind the points face north.

I hope anyone on Riley's point is able to chime in.

Hi not a report just a question. My wife and I are looking at moving to Riley’s point. My question is are you able to have a pier/dock on it or not. When I look at the satellite view the only piers/docks I see are all in the channel inside the point. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Slow day yesterday.  My son and I caught 4 bass from 13 - 18 inches, a 18 inch walleye and some sheephead.  Most fish came on a leech under a slip bobber.  8 -13 ft. of water

In my experience, you can do alright without a guide but given the situation and limitations that you have described, get a guide. You don't want to grind it out for hours looking for fish. Make it easy on yourself and enjoy the experience. Mrt.

Thanks for the post on where to stay... im gonna check it out. Im taking my grandfather up here in a couple weeks. Ive never been but need to get him out of town because grandma is planning a suprise remission party for him when we get back. 

My question is am I able to locate fish with my lake chip based on reading structure or is this real hard to fish?

Also is this a place where I can fish realitvely easy rigs like texas rigs and drift and such so that its easy for gramps. Just looking for some advice. And you can p.m. me and I appreciate any tips. If anyone has a reasonable guide rate to maybe ill leave the boat home and pay to have us hop on with someone.

Thanks again

Just want to recommend a great place to stay if you are from out of the area and fishing Little Sturgeon, Sturgeon Bay, or the Bayshore area of Green Bay. It is called the Countryside Motel 920-824-5309. It also has RV sites. It is located very close to Little Sturgeon and just a couple of blocks from a country store that sells groceries, beer, and bait and tackle.

It has a nice indoor fish cleaning station, is quiet and kept very clean. I stayed here for a month and was given a special rate that was very reasonable. The couple who own the motel do the cleaning so you can feel your possessions are secure when you are away and they clean your room.

Most of all the couple who own this facility are very nice and accomodating. Highly recommend it.

Any day out on the water is great. But all I can say is today was awesome!! We were dragging crawler harness's for walleye but lol hit Catfish. Not small cats were talking 8 to 14 pounders. We landed 7 and lost probably another 5 or 6. Never seen anything like it. Can't wait to go back. Btw all fish were released

Went out this AM with a Sturgeon Bay Guide named Jon Sowl.  We got our limit (10 walleyes) before noon-4 were perfect eaters around 18 " and the others were fat pigs 21-26 ".  All were post spawn.

We planned on jigging a little but we got lazy and picked everything up trolling both flat line and side boards, mostly flicker shads, no particular color 

Sowl is pretty knowledgeable and changed things around until we started hitting fish.  He doesn't advertise much but has a Facebook page .
