Right now if your shore fishing, i would fish from the Old Stone Quarry Park for smallies ! Located on Cty Hwy. B about 6 miles north of Sturgeon bay on the ship canal . There is a fishing pier that is very long, and you can park right up to the water !Anything brown, Tubes, plastics, crawfish, etc. as they are eating gobies which are brown. My favorite is a weighted slip bobber with a nightcrawler set at about 6-8 ft, depending how far you can cast out ! Bring a long handled net, as its a 4 ft drop to the water. Small kids should wear life preservers, as there are boulders and strong currents right below edge of pier. If you stop by the Door Co. Chamber of Commerce on rte 57 coming into Sturgeon Bay, pick up that book "FIshing The Door", as its worth its weight in gold. Also stop by Howies Fishing and Tackle Shop a few blocks from Chamber of Commerce, and pick Lance Lavine's brains, as he puts out the daily Door Co. Fishing report on WDOR 94 FM? Spend some money in there ,he knows the score in Door ! In fact maybe buy that book from him !
If you have a boat, that Stone Quarry has excellent launch ramps, and that whole shoreline is a smallie heaven ! Right now the spawn is almost over, but i hear their still in pre-spawn and spawn up by Sister Bay yet .
