The musky bite has been tough over roughly the last week with the incoming heavy winds and rapidly cooling water stalling the bait fish migration. The mouth of the Fox, lower bay and Fox River 172 flats continue to put out a few fish but the bite has been slow and inconsistent. Look for increased current in the Fox River with the weekend rains and more stable weather mid-week next week to help improve the bite. With the lack of current in the Fox River walleyes are being caught in the lower bay by fishermen targeting rock structure. Trolling, jigging and casting crankbaits are working. We heard that they are starting to lower the Winnebago system so with that water moving our way it should trigger the shad to move into the river with the predictor fish following them in. Shore fishing from Metro also has been hit and miss. For more information on where to fish give us a call at 920 593 1749. Yah, only at Smokeys!!!
