Anybody been up to the fish creek area or the islands lately? Been up there a few times with alright success in the past couple years. Thinking about going again in a couple weeks usually only go in spring early summer. How is it up there this time of year?

Thanks for all the recommendations for Sturgeon Bay area. I definitely plan to take the advice and stop at Howies tomorrow on the way into town.  One last question, with my boat staying on the water all weekend, is there a good place in Sturgeon Bay to fill it up on the water or should I bring some portable gas cans?

Caught a few 20 inch walleyes and some smallmouth trolling around on Larson reef.lost a board last night if anyone finds one floating out near Larson reef.I don't remember if it was one with a phone # on it or not but if you find it I can describe it.the walleyes been hitting good on crankbaits at night.the bass were on wacky worms.big rapala shad raps for the eyes also try the big flicker minnows they been getting hit also.the fish are shallow as 4 feet or down to 15 ft.those big fish don't mind being in the skinny water at all.Warning for all boaters!!!!ATTN!!! Beware of floating trees and driftwood !!! We seen a pole 10 - 12 feet long and 8-10 inches around floating in open water this could seriously injure people if hit at speed at night.or tear off a motor keep your eyes on the water and be extra observant when in the sturgeon bay waters.please pass this warning along just to remind other boaters and fisherman.any thing that large can really do some very expensive damage or cause a bad accident .stay safe and keep your eyes open!!!!!!!!!

Lake trout..I've been fishing with a guide out of Kewanee for many years. We've picked up a lot of big lake trout in years past,but not many in the past 10 years. He told me a few years back that the water clarity has him finding more weeds at depths while dragging a ball off the bottom and thus it's a lot of work. I hear there are weeds down as far as 80 ft or more  ? So he catches them early in the year on planer boards.

As far as the flats are concerned ,this time of year,i like to work the deeper edges and cuts. Most of the bigger smallmouth hang in the 15 to 20 ft range which will put you some 3 to 400 yards offshore in the westward shores area. Cool breeze days in a hot summer season I work little harbor and pick up fish in the 10 to 12ft range. Splash Man mentioned tube jigs which is what I use primarily. Want to try that goby 2 inch tube they sell at Howie s ! Tipped with a half nightcrawler..can use slip bobber rigs too as long as there is a little chop, kids should have a blast! I don't think you need a guide for Smallies as there is plenty of structure to try,but it does make for a hassle free day if ya have the bucks. Pontoon boats can be rented at the old bridge for a good family outing. Just make sure to bring a heavy stern anchor like a barbell on a rope of 40ish pounds.
