Smokeys Weekly Fishing Report 11/1/21

Fall is here and the fish are biting. With the strong winds we have been having it is making it difficult to fish the lower bay, Use caution when venturing out, check with a guide or bait shop for conditions. Walleyes and perch are still being caught on the lower bay trolling and jigging on both the east and west shores. The Fox River has been improving for walleyes. The day bite is a little slow as the flood gates by the dam are closed so there is not a lot of current. It seems that the night bite is the best time to fish walleyes using jigs and minnows, soft plastics, blade baits and minnow baits. Some monster walleyes are being caught at night by the Metro warm water discharge. Trolling cranks on the 172 flats is working well. Small mouth bass are being caught by the dam casting floating rapalas. Perch fishing is still going strong out of Bay Shore, Vincent Point and the mouth of the Suamico River. Perch, Bluegills and crappie are still being caught by the 172 bridge and smaller harbors. Musky fishing on the bay has been tough because of the strong north winds we have been receiving. Muskies don’t like it when it gets too ruff on the shallow flats so try trolling the channel in deeper water. Some muskies are also being caught on the 172 flats trolling cranks.
