Anybody have any tips for Walleye and Smallmouth this time of year? Anything would be helpful I have caught a few smallmouth around Horseshoe Island. Two years ago I went from Horseshoe Island out to Chambers and tried trolling boards but never had any luck. Also tried Horseshoe reef without any success. Is it just jumping from hump to hump and looking on the electronics for fish? Is there a target depth to look for? I'm staying in Gills Rock this year so might put the boat on the ferry and give Washington Island a try.
Door County Walleyes
Does anyone do any good on Whaleback shoal?
Heading up to Sister Bay 7/20 - 8/5 searching for Walleyes. Please PM if you plan to fish the area and are willing to share information.
Currently, there is still plenty of rotting ice moving around on Green Bay. (See satellite image from a couple days ago)
So, we are still a couple of weeks out before the waters of Door County will be ice free and fishable.
Here is a short video of some walleye fishing the Green Bay waters of Door County. Still have a few weekday dates available the end of April and May to have the opportunity at catching a walleye of a lifetime.

Tight lines and good fishing to all!
Fished Chambers island this past weekend. Caught a total of 4 walleyes with lots of fish lost too. All pigs, 22-26 inches. All fish came on crawler harnesses in 29-35 feet of water. When it was slow we jigged in 50ft of water and got a white fish!The walleyes have now moved deeper. Fished Chambers island 2 weeks ago also and got 5 walleyes and a big cat. All fish were caught on cranks in 20-28 feet of water. We got two 28’s two 29’s and one 22. Go catch out my YouTube video of that awesome trip!

I am looking at planning a large family vacation to Door County next year sometime. We are hoping to do both salmon and walleye fishing. None of us have ever fished Green Bay or that area of Lake Michigan, so I’m hoping you guys who are regulars to the area might be able to help me out. I am looking to find out some of the following information.
1. What would be the best month to go when we’d be able to catch both? My initial though is towards the end of June
2. Where would be the best place to stay? I’m thinking of Sturgeon Bay just because it looks like there would be easy access to both sides of the peninsula. But are there better areas with access to both sides.
3. Where are some good general areas for Walleyes and Salmon? I’m kind of making an assumption that we’d have to fish for Walleye in Green Bay and Salmon on the Lake Michigan side, but please let me know if that is not the case.
Thanks in advance for any information you're willing to provide.
