Smokeys on the Bay Weekly Fishing Report 6/15/21

Again with this warmer weather the water is heating up fast. Most of the walleyes have moved to deeper water so fish the deeper breaks on both the east shore and west shore. Musky fishing is still slow right now but a few are being caught on the west shore in the weeds. Remember to handle these fish properly with this warmer than average weather. Perch fishing is still going strong on both shores of the bay and on the south side of Longtail fishermen have been catching some nice blue gills. To find out what to use give us a call 920 593 1749. Yah, only at Smokeys!!!

As the water temps heat up the walleye are moving off the flats to deeper cooler water. On the east shore Vincent Point, Vokes Reef, Bay Shore and Chaudoirs have been producing some nice walleyes. On the west shore fish the deeper breaks in Saumico and Geano’s. Fishermen are also catching some nice perch in the same spots. Musky fishing has been spotty, they have moved out of the Fox River. We have been getting reports that the muskies are starting to move into the weeds on the west shore. To find out what to use give us a call at 920 593 1749. Yah, only at Smokeys!!!

Walleye fishing continued its hot pace, despite the cold front with NE winds to 30 mph and air temps driving water temps down 8-12 degrees throughout Green Bay.  The bite slowed considerably Thursday thru Saturday, but by Sunday it rebounded nicely, with good catches of fish on Frying Pan Shoal, University Bay, Vokes Reef, Vincent Point and Point Comfort.  Big white bass were found in the shipping channel out by Grassy Island, and some good perch catches were observed by Geanos Reef and near Dykesville.  If you get out, be safe, and take a kid fishing.

Musky season is here but it was a slow opening. We had an early spawn and with Memorial Weekend later this year it looks like most of the big fish moved out to the bay. We had reports of numerous 50 inch plus being caught in U-Bay, so they are still out there. Walleyes are still going strong on both east and west shores trolling crank baits and crawler harness’s. Perch are still being caught on the Fox and both the east and west shore of the bay. For more details and to find out what to use give us a call at 920 593 1749. Yah, only at Smokeys!!!

Smokeys on the Bay Weekly Guide Report 5/26/21

Excellent walleye fishing continues, with hot bites going in University Bay, Suamico, Deadhorse, and Geanos Reef.  Crankbaits behind planer boards, crawler harnesses, jig/crawler, blade baits, and rippin raps are all taking fish.  White Bass are working their way out of the Fox River, with edges of the shipping channel being a good place to find them.  Jigging has taken the most fish.  To the north, a good walleye bite has been found around Pensaukee, Oconto, and Green Island.  If you go, be safe, and as always, take a kid fishing.

Walleye fishing on Green Bay can you continues to be good to excellent, with many limit catches of great eating 15-18” walleyes.  Popular colors are white, purple, and custom #7 flicker minnows in gold/purple and white/purple.  Hot walleye bites were found at College Reef, Kidney Island rocks, Suamico and Geanos Reef.  With the perch opener coming this week, finding perch will be a high priority for many anglers.  Structure found on Vincent Point, Geanos Reef, off Dykesville, and the rock/weed areas of Oconto are great places to start.  Remember, if you go, be safe, and take a kid fishing!

Give us a call at Smokeys for what bait and lure to use, Yah, Only at Smokeys!!!

Smokeys on the Bay Guide’s Weekly Fishing Report 5/11/21

Fishing over the last 7 days for walleyes has been good to excellent on Green Bay. While colder air temperatures and high winds have kept many off the water, those who have braved the waters have been rewarded with solid catches. Good eating size walleyes have been caught around the east shore of University Bay, Vokes Reef, Suamico, Geanos Reef and Bayshore. Trolling crankbaits and jigging with hair jigs and rippin raps have been the most successful presentations. Large white bass are now found in the mouth of the Fox River and are beginning to disperse into the Bay. To the north, an excellent bite around Oconto and Sturgeon Bay continues for both walleye and smallmouth bass. Casting jerk baits and tubes are taking the most fish. If you go, be safe, and take a kid fishing!

With these colder temperatures we are experiencing we are finding that the early morning bite is not as productive as late morning/afternoon. Once the sun has a chance to warm up the surface temps on the water it seems to make the fish more active. Walleyes are still being caught on the lower bay on the east and west shore. Vincent Point seems to be the hot spot right now either trolling or jigging. White Bass and crappies are still being caught in the Fox River and some nice northern pike are being caught by the warm water discharge by Metro Launch.
