Wondering if anyone has been out fishing for muskies? Going out Saturday, wondering if I should start at Geano or suamico? Thanks

Hey everyone. I'm planning a trip to GB in late summer/early fall and I've never fished this area. I'm wondering if anyone here can recommend a good guide for ski's as I'm not familiar with the bay at all. I have done some searching but I'd appreciate some feedback. Thank you!

To answer your question, out yesterday saw 3 other boats. 2 docks are still in at the metro, but I would check the camera. I was surprised they were in yesterday.
1 possible rip (board slid back/and to the side, no fish when we got to the rod), no fish in the boat yesterday. Hit U-bay and the river.
Ice will be early this year from what I saw. Highest water temp was 33.8, 32.3 to 32.8 most places. Any serious cold snap now will ice up U-bay and the edges of the river.
Best part was trolling the wake of a 300' coal ship. My partner mentioned they fish the wakes of the big boats on St Claire so I thought I would try it. The power of the prop is insane. They yelled at my partner to sit down just before we hit the wake because it would jerk the boat and throw him overboard. It moved the boat like it was a cork. Any musky around would have had easy pickings, the shad were pushed all over the place. Gulls were picking them off behind the boat at will.
Anyone still fishing, bay still boat accessible? Thanks in advance!

Hey folks, I have a cabin up north and fish muskies primarily up in the Hayward area and do some trolling on various lakes. I do fish the bay a lot for walleyes, browns etc. since I live in Door County so I understand most things about running boards etc.
My question is this time of year (water temp low 40's) can you tell me a "goto" starting speed on trolling for muskies, fully understanding that some days adjustments need to be made. Also if you would share any of your favorite fall baits. I have some success with Jakes and Shallow Raiders, bucktails work decent as well. Most of my trolling is done in under 10-12 FOW. I figured I would ask the guys who seriously know the trolling scene for muskies. BTW we can only run a max of 2 rods in the boat. Also, some of the lakes I fish are more numbers lakes with biggest fish maybe in the mid 40s, but lots of smaller fish. Thanks for any advice. I read about a huge range of speeds that people swear by. Hard to decipher.
This was on windshield at Fox Pointe launch.
If you are out or know someone, pass the word.
