I am just getting back into soft water fishing. I grew up in oconto and used to go out with my dad out of county park 2 when I was a young kid. He has since passed and I am trying to take my boys out to give them the same experience. Roughly where out of county park 2 would I go to get on some perch. any advise would be great as i know guides and some people highly value their hot spots. thanks

Started the day jigging and nothing. We switched over to trolling and ran cranks in 9-13fow. Nothing but Perch, a Pike, and a Bass. Moved to a different area in 15-19fow and not even a hit. Switched to crawlers and ran to 4-6fow and started getting fish over the tops of the weeds. Had to constantly clear lines from weeds and Perch but it was well worth it considering how the day started!
The best piece of advice I can give you is follow the boats. That is where the fish are at.
There aren't any spots I can think of that are shallow concerns for your boat. But do watch out for floating logs and debris. We saw enough of it over the weekend and had to do evasive maneuvers at 30 mph a few times.
Heading up tomorrow morning and staying at north bay shore park. Anyone have some information on where would be a good place to start for some eyes? Some place to start looking and hazards and places to avoid. Any intel is greatly appreciated
Any recent reports in the Oconto area? Heading up tonight and we had struggled to find any eyes last weekend. TIA
The bite has been Great . Walleyes are in the rivers now.
All the rivers North, south and Mid Bay.
The bite is fintastic. Rain will only help . All forms of walleye lures are catching fish. (I have not used crawlers yet. )
Weather in April has rain, if you can get out and dress appropriately. Time is now. Cranks and plastics and minnows , jigging raps.
I have openings for 1-3 Thursday tomorrow and Saturday.
If anyone wants to go Walleye fishing for some giant fish.
text or email me
