Smokeys weekly fishing report 12/05/23

Fishing on the lower bay and Fox River has been a little slow with the cold temperatures we had last week some of the boat landings and water ways had ice making it difficult to get to the hot spots. This week with the warmer temps fishing should pick up. Walleyes are being caught by the mouth of the Fox, the 172 flats and by the deeper pockets and where there is current. Trolling and jigging are catching fish. Also fishermen are having some luck with live bait using a slower presentation. Musky fishing was tough last week with ice conditions but again everything should open up this week with the warmer weather we are getting. Trolling the 172 flats and the mouth of the Fox with crank baits has been working the best. Casting rubber towards the shore by the mouth in front of Smokeys is also a good place to try. Last year on December 7th one of the larges muskies I have seen was caught casting rubber it was 55 by 29.5 a 60 pound fish. Shore fishing by Metro is picking up again. Walleye bite is better at night and the pike fishing has been real good. Some muskies are being caught too. There has been reports of perch, walleye and whitefish being caught out of Voyager. Remember to take a kid fishing. For more information give us a call at 920 593 1749. Yah, only at Smokey!!!!
