The whole area will be great for SM bass. Bass south should be completed spawning. North bass should be still going. You have options. Fish shorelines tubes and drop shot rigs.

I fish you don't get info, try stopping at the bike shop near the entrance of the park.  Owner is or at least was a guy named Stretch.  He knows the bay and is an outstanding fisherman.  He may be able to help.

So I have read both threads :) for Peninsula State Park and am still need of some info for some fishing Memorial Day weekend.  We'll be there all weekend and really don't have any preference for a species, so whatever info anyone decides to throw my way we will add to the options list.  I do have a 16ft deep V w/90 hp so I can get to just about anywhere, though keeping track of the wind is always at the forefront.  Thanks.

Went on a boat ride where I got to fish for a while. Camped in the park and went out around 10am. Cruised the cliffs by the tower then crossed to the island. Pitched a minnow on a float rig and caught five perch between 6-9 inches, then had to go.I was tempted to keep the big one but let it go like the rest. Water temp was 62.

I've caught big numbers of smallmouth bass right off the public fishing pier in Fish Creek in the harbor. (a guy needs to do something while wifey is shopping) Great action, and several fish over 20', biggest being 23 1/2 ". Just make sure you have a long handled net, as it is a long way down to water. A 1/8 jig below a slip bobber with a wacky riggedGgulp leach has worked the best for me, with the bait about 8' down from the bobber. Try it, it's blast, and you will catch fish.

Fished around Strawberry Islands just out from the park. To rough to make the run to Sister Islands on Sat or Sunday. Caught a nice 17" Smally on Sat along with the customary sheaphead. Sunday caught 1 16" Smally on Sunday along with 3 undersized Smallys as well as a Red Sucker. All fish caught trolling Flicker Shads 25" - 50" back. Bigger fish were caught in 10 - 12 FOW. Only caught smaller fish in 3-8 FOW. Water temp was 54- 61 degrees. Still can't find a reliable productive spot out of Peninsula State Park. Maybe next year.

Headed up to Egg Harbor for my annual weekend with our now 7 year old daughter. I will be launching out of Peninsula State Park. Anyone have any suggestions other than the Northwest corner of Chambers Island, and Sister islands. Fell free to PM, any info appreciated

Depending on the wind you will find the water very clear. My advice would be to fish very early or later in the evening. Shore fishing can be very tough. I would use very light line and cast as far out as possible. A weighted bobber with a jig and crawler or gulp minnow may produce as well as anything. If you can move up and down the shore to try different spots that will help improve your chances. If you can get an idea of how deep a certain spot is a slip bobber rigged as previously described might well be the ticket. Reel in both rigs in a jigging motion. Good luck!

Hello

I'll be camping in the park this weekend and have a campsite that backs up against the beach in South Nicolet Bay. I was wondering if anyone knows how deep it is there and if there is any chance of catching any fish? I would be interested in casting a bobber with hopes of perch, and casting for small mouth or walley.

I've never fished around here and was wondering if there is a feasible chance of catching anything? Is it a waste of time to bring the poles? Whats the best bet for bait?

Went out to chamber island this morning. Marked fish out from the Northeastern corner of Chambers Island in 35 FOW. Caught a 21" smallmouth on a perch Taildancer 11 130' back. Caught a 19 1/2" smallmouth on a Deep Diving Husky Jerk 12 225' back. Caught a 24" catfish in 70 FOW water tuning the boat around on a Purpledescent Taildancer 11 180' back. No walleye but had some nice action. Fished from 7 - 9:30 and got caught in the downpour on the way back to harbor. Grandpa was a good sport saying it was quite an adventure. Water temp was 72 degrees
