Smokeys on the Bay Weekly Fishing Report 8/23/21

The walleye bite continues to be very good out on Vincent Reef, Bay Shore, Chaudoir Dock on the east shore and Saumico, Geanos, Oconto on the west shore. Fishermen are still trolling cranks, crawler harnesses and rip jiggn for the walleyes. Perch fishing is still going strong at the locations I mentioned for walleyes fishing in 10 to 22 feet of water on the east shore and fishing the reefs and weed beds on the west shore. Minnows, night crawlers and leeches are working the best. Reports of some nice muskies being caught last week is a good sign that the bite is picking up. Casting bucktails, rubber and trolling cranks are working well. Remember to pick up weed guards before you start trolling for your muskies to improve your chances for muskies. Shore fishing by metro is doing very well perch, walleye, bass and pike are being caught. For more information give us a call at 920 593 1749. Yah, only at smokeys!!!

Smokeys Weekly Guide Report 8/17/21

Walleye and perch fishing are excellent on Green Bay, with many limit catches in several places. Vincent Point, 2 mile reef, Macos reef, North South reef, Oconto Shoal, Geanos reef and Young’s reef are all putting out good catches of both species. Jigging Wapsie Ripper Minnows and trolling flicker minnows are the best presentation. For perch, night crawler pieces, red worms and minnows have been best. Musky fishermen are also doing well, with casting bucktails, Shadzillas, Medusa’s, shallow invaders, and similar baits. Charles Pond and the inside weed edge of Geanos have been best. In Door County waters, smallmouth and walleye have been active, with good catches of both species on deep reefs. If you go, be safe, and take a kid fishing.

Smokeys Weekly Fishing Guide Report 8/3/21

Walleye and perch fishing on Green Bay are very good, with several great bites going as long as the weather remains consistent.  Geanos Reef, Macos Reef, Chaudoirs Dock, North South Reef, Oconto Shoal, and Young’s Reef are all putting out catches of walleye, with perch fishermen also finding success in these areas.  Trolling crankbaits and crawler harnesses, and jigging ripper minnows or swim baits are popular and successful techniques.  For big fish, the waters of northern Door County are the place to be.  Chambers Island, Horseshoe Reef, Sister Bay, and Strawberry Island reefs are all producing big walleyes.  Trolling, casting, and jigging are putting these big fish in the boat.  If you go, please be safe, and take a kid fishing.

Smokeys Weekly Fishing Guide Report 7/14/21

The constantly changing weather has put fishing in a great one day, poor the next spin. Last week’s NE wind and cooler temps shut the bite down for a couple days, then the first warm day saw excellent fishing. By Saturday, things had stabilized back to normal, with good walleye fishing found at Deadhorse, Vincent Point, 2 Mile Reef, Geanos Reef and the mud off Geanos and Pensaukee. Crankbaits and jigs shallow, with crawler harnesses deep took the most fish. Perch fishing also has been good, with limit catches around Suamico, Geanos, and Dykesville. If you get out, be safe, and take a kid fishing.
