Smokeys on the Bay weekly fishing report by Captain Claus 6/4/24

With all the rain and massive amounts of bait fish down in Green Bay the Walleye activity  is slow at best.  Some of the best areas to locate a few Walleye have been the edges of shallow weeds to sand in the lower Bay.  Trolling crank baits or crawler harnesses around Kidney Island, Frying Pan Shoal, or the shoreline between Point Sable and Bay Shore are some of your best bets.  You will find a plethora of “other fish” around to keep you busy also.   Geanos Reel and the Pensaukee area also shallow have had a few Walleye .

The Perch bite both along the east Shore and West shore has continued to be decent. Minnows and crawlers suspended below bobbers or on a drop shot have worked well.  Chaudoir’s dock to Maccos on the east shore and around Pensaukee on the West shore have been good areas to target.  Hopefully the baitfish intrusion  will be over soon and activity will pick up.

The Fox River is giving up a few Walleye along with other fish so if you are looking to take a kid out fishing that is a great choice.  

Door County the Small Mouth Bass activity has been the best show in town for continued action.  The areas nirth of Sturgeon Bay have been the choice of most anglers.  Tossing Ned rigs, and jerk baits has been good.  Also Hair jigs and tubes have been productive.  Don’t overlook swim baits also as they catch Small Mouth everywhere!   Anything looking like an alewife or Goby will get bit.  

Musky bite has been tough, influx of alewife in the system is good for the fishery but not good for the fishermen at this time. Another 2 weeks and the bay will be on fire for all species.

As always, be safe on the water! Be safe and tight lines.
