Smokeys weekly fishing report by Captain Claus and Ruffolo 6/10/24

Walleye action in some areas of Green Bay has started to pick up. The West Shore areas near the weeds
with warmer waters have begun producing some catches of Walleye. Dead Horse Bay, Suamico, Geanos
Beach Pensaukee have all had some increase in activity. Trolling spinners over the weeds has worked
well along with casting hair jigs and plastics and jigging spoons like Bink’s Spoons. The key is to be a
little agile and be willing to move round a bit to find active fish.
The lower Bay has seen catches o rough fish along with an occasion Walleye. The East shore Walleye
activity has been minimal, and your best bet would be an evening trip trolling the shorelines or structure
like Volks Reef.
The Perch bite continues to be good if you are willing to put in some time and search for them with your
electronics. Minnows suspended below slip bobbers or on a drop shot have been the best. Some
anglers are reporting success using small plastics like 2” Keitech Easy Shiners when they locate fish.
In Door County Small Mouth Bass activity has continued top be good. Getting out away from bedding
fish has been very good throwing Ned Rigs, swim baits, and spinner baits.
The little heat wave headed our way locally should do the trick to push out the remaining Alewife and
bring us better Walleye activity soon. Musky fishing has been tough due to the influx of alewives in the system, hopefully they will be gone in the next couple of weeks. Shore fishermen are reporting catches of sheephead, cats, perch, bass and a few walleye out of metro.

Yah, only at Smokeys!!!
As always, be safe on the water! Be safe and tight lines.
