Smokeys weekly fishing report 10/2/23

Captain Ruffolo was not able to give a report this week. I talked to him and he advised me the report is basically like last week. With this warmer weather we are having the bait fish are still in the lower bay thus walleye fishing is tough. Fishermen are catching walleye trolling and jigging College Reef in U- Bay using flicker minnows, ripper minnows and hair jigs. Out of Bay Shore trolling and jigging the reefs are producing some nice eyes just not the quantities that we are used too. Perch fishing has been really good on the east shore using Smokey’s perch rigs jigging by Point Vincent, Vokes Reef and 2 mile reef tipped with a minnow and crawlers. Musky fishing has been pretty good, the hot spot has been the Frying Pan Shoal trolling Tyrant Raz Shads, Super Shads, Tyrant Czars and jointed lures. Shore fishing by metro is so so, we need colder weather to trigger the fish. As always take a kid fishing. Yah, only at Smokeys!!!
