Fishing around the island well after the spawn can be tough.  I’ve been up there fishing 5-6 days over the past 2 years around this time.  Seems like the smallmouth go deep and offshore around the door county peninsula.  My buddy and out pounded shallower water our first ever trip there last year and only produced 2 fish.  We only fish artificial baits.  Went out of fish creek the following day and found them on offshore structure like saddles, humps shoals.  If your fishing Washington island be careful as they don’t call it Deaths Door for nothing.  Crazy shallow water out of nowhere.  Have a good gps fish finder with mapping.  Look for where others are fishing.  The shipping channel and outside of Detroit island seem to be more productive in the summer.

Heading up at the end of the week. First time ever fishing the area. Hope to catch smallies and then maybe some eyes. Any advice on lure selection and expectations would be appreciated.

Heading up to the island the first week of August for the first time in 10 years and was wondering how the salmon fishing was going these days.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Look for weed beds. I had my best luck the first small bay as you enter the main harbor. We mainly toss spinner baits and red eye spoons. Hope it helps.

Looks like you can get an occasional pike but walleye seem rare around the island.

Headed up to fish the island on Friday. We're going with a guide for smallies that day, but plan on trying our luck with my dad's boat on Saturday.  Hopefully the guide is willing to share some info, but does anyone have any tips for a pike or eye bite in the area?

We did get a few nice ones where the darker rock meets sandy bottom in about 15 fow.  I heard the bluff walls on the northwest side of island can be really good.  Anyone tried them?
