Green Bay Area
The fishing has been really good over the past couple weeks in the Green Bay Area. The walleye action is really heating up in the southern end of Green Bay.
Walleyes have been scattered across that deeper water and the best way to target these fish has been trolling. My personal favorite bait to use is the Berkley Flicker Shad, but we are also have a lot of success pulling crawler harnesses.
If you are fishing down in the lower bay you can get on a pretty good jig bite. Hair jigs, jigging raps and jig and plastics will all produce fish. For the best bite look for cooler and cleaner water.
The fishing in Sturgeon Bay has been really good. Anglers will find walleyes trolling anywhere from Snake Island and East towards Sand Bay.
Similar to Green Bay, crankbaits and crawler harnesses have been the ticket.
Focus your efforts anywhere from fifteen to twenty-two feet of water.
There has also been a good smallmouth bass bite on Sturgeon Bay on finesse presentations. Drop shots, ned rigs, tubes, and wacky worms have been the best methods.
If the wind is blowing and there is some chop on the water you can catch a few fish on crankbaits, but on those flat calm days, slower finesse presentations should be your go to choice.
Thats my latest report for the Green Bay Area. If you guys are looking to get out you can reach me through my website Wacky Walleye guide service. Good luck out there on the water!
