Smokeys weekly fishing report by Capatin Ruffolo 9/19/23

Walleye fishing over the last week could best be described as inconsistent, with periods of multiple fish and other times of few to zero fish. The one truth I’ve found was fish on rocks, with a good bite going if we had wind. University Bay, Vincent, Point Comfort, Macos, Geanos, Deadhorse and the shipping channel edges all put out fish for us last week, with no area far dominant over another. Trolling crankbaits and casting ripper minnows were our 2 best presentations, with most fish coming on perch or fire tiger patterns. To the north, guys are still getting a few fish off Chaudoirs Dock, North-South reef, Little Sturgeon, Young’s Reef, and Oconto shoal. Trolled crankbaits and casting Ripper minnows worked best. Perch fishing was also inconsistent, with great days and others with a few to no fish. When they were active, minnows and crawlers both took fish. Musky have been very active, with quite a few fish taken both trolling and casting. Big fish activity has been good near Geanos reef and the gravel humps near the county line on the west side, with good action on the east side near Vokes reef and between Vincent and Pt Comfort. Tyrant Raz Shads, Rapala Super shad, Hunsytails, Spanky Bucktails and Madussa’s are all taking fish. If you go, please be safe, and take a kid fishing!
