Fishing Report August 20, 2019

Anglers All reports:  Fish in the Bay continue to be in their summer pattern and Fishing continues to be really good! Right now the water temp is in the low 70's. Small Mouth are now in 10 to 30 feet of water. However, certain times of day you can fish the shallows of the shoreline for Small Mouth. We are having a tremendous year for Walleye fishing in the Bay. Most anglers are working 10 to 30 feet of water over weed beds and drop offs with anglers having success using crawler harnesses and stick baits. There are always Northerns in the mix. Summer fishing has been successful.

Scott Bretting from River Rock Inn & Bait Shop reports: Nights are getting cooler and days are getting shorter. Fall is in the air and Autumn fishing is just around the corner so stay tuned! We have water temps in the mid to upper 70's. There are a lot of nice Walleyes being caught in the Chequamegon Bay. A good bait to use there are crawlers, leaches, shad rapps, crawler harnesses, and little cleos.  Bass are now in their summer pattern in 20 feet. We are starting to see some Rock Bass now. The weeds are starting to get thicker making it tougher to cast. Soaking minnows and crawlers are the bait to use. A good bait for the Creeks and Streams right now are night crawlers and spinners.  We have a great Chequamegon Bay Fishing Brochure/Map which shows some of our shoreline fishing spots. Shoreline fishing has been great in some of the local favorite spots to fish listed on the fishing brochure.  There have been some nice size Perch being caught at the Ashland Marina and the base of the Oredock.

Do not bring your boat to Country Boy auto detail in Washburn Wisconsin!! I brought my boat there for Marcus Warren to sell and he used it at his leisure!! He literally busted my prop fish finder broke off one of my rod holders put new scratches in my boat. I even found cigarette butts put out in my carpet, beer cans etc.  He sent me text to come get my pos out of his lot and 2 get fkd!! We are in court next month I will post the judgment!

I'm a night troller for Walleye. Is there someone night fishing for Walleye in the bay flats or islands who would be willing to share some info on that specific kind of fishing on the bay. You could email me at skorinek@me.com if you prefer. I mostly fish Sturgeon Bay and LBDN but have moved to Northern Wisconsin and would love to try this approach up in the islands!

Thanks,

Steve


Brad, Thanks for the info! I'd love to ask you a few more questions and buy you a beer! That's some great detail in very few words :-)  Can you send me your email address to above? That did not come through...just your message. And, thanks again!

Fishing Report July 25, 2019

Anglers All reports: Fishing really has been great! Right now the water temp has moved to the 70's. There are still fish in the upper water column as well as fish on the bottom. There have been Small Mouth being caught out by the Light House using live bait. Trollers are still using stick baits in the shallower water using spoons and spin n glows. Small Mouth Fishing is in full swing in Sandcut, Oak Point, and Brush Point, with some post spawn fish moving all over the Bay where ever there is structure. The flats off of Madeline Island have had reports of anglers catching Lake Trout and Coho's. Anglers have been successful using plastics on light jigs, crank-baits, hair-jigs, and live bait. They worked slowly in 15 feet of water or less. There have been some beautiful Small Mouth being caught. There have been reports of walleyes being caught. There are always Northerns in the mix.

Scott Bretting from River Rock Inn & Bait Shop reports We have good water clarity with water temps in the mid to upper 70's. There are a lot of nice Walleyes being caught in the Chequamegon Bay. A good bait to use there are crawlers, leaches, shad rapps, crawler harnesses, and little cleos. Bass are now in their summer pattern in 15 feet. Trolling has been great out in the flats. With warmer nights and warmer weather, it puts us in the midst of the May Fly (Green Bay Bugs) hatch. The Inlands have been having some really nice Crappies and Pan Fish being caught. A good bait for the Creeks and Streams right now are night crawlers and spinners. Inland Lake Musky fishing is getting better as the temps warm. We have a great Chequamegon Bay Fishing Brochure/Map which shows some of our shoreline fishing spots. Some of these key areas have been catching some nice Northern Pike using larger sucker minnows, spoons and dare devils. Shoreline fishing has been great in some of the local favorite spots to fish listed on the fishing brochure. There have been some nice size Perch being caught at the Ashland Marina and the base of the Oredock.

Looking for a good guide mid-August for our visit to the Apostle Islands. Species can vary. Just want my boys catching some fish. Any suggestions?
