Smokeys Weekly Fishing Report 10/23/23

Finally there is some current in the Fox River sparking some walleyes to make their way to the dam. Fishing structure, deeper pockets, the warm water discharges are producing some nice fish. Walleyes are still being caught in U-Bay and the channel from Longtail to the mouth of the Fox. Fishermen are trolling crank baits, jigging hair jigs, jig and a minnow,Bink spoons, Ripper minnows and blade baits. Perch fishing is still going good out of Bay Shore, Saumico river and the Fox river using perch rigs with minnows or a piece of crawler. Musky fishing is hit and miss. With the current picking up the bait fish will be on the move to spawn in the river so trollling U-Bay, the edge of the channel and the 172 flats should be good places to start. Raz Shads, jointed cranks and casting rubber are working. Shore fishing has picked up by Metro and Voyager with pike, walleyes, perch, bass and a few musky’s being caught. Remember to take a kid fishing. Yah, only at Smokeys!!!
