Smokeys weekly fishing report by Captain Jerry Ruffolo 9/26/22

Walleye fishing on Green Bay is good, with limit catches taking place in several locations. The Fox River at De Pere, Geanos reef, Vincent Point, Young’s reef, North-South reef, Bayshore, Kidney Island, and deep mud areas of the Sharkfin, Oconto Shoal, and Pensaukee Shoal are all putting out fish. Trolling Flicker Shads, flicker minnows, shad raps, Smithwick P10’s, and Salmo hornets have been best. Casting Ripper minnows and Binks spoons are also taking fish. As a reminder, currently the limit on walleye in the Fox River is 3 fish with no size limit. Perch fishing is good, with limit catches of great eating 10-12” fish being taken at Suamico, Oconto, Geanos, Vincent, Macos, Bayshore, and in front of Dykesville. Minnows, crawlers, and helgramites are the best baits for perch. Muskie fishing is good, as water temps cooling into the 62-65 degree range put these large predators on the feed. Crankbaits such as Super Shad Raps, Tyrant Raz Shads, Tyrant Czars, Shallow Invaders, and large Storm stickbaits are taking fish. Just a reminder, please handle these great fish with care when releasing them. Shore fishing is really improving as the temperatures drop and the bait fish are migrating to the river systems.
As always, please be safe on the water and take a kid fishing. Yah, only at Smokeys!!!
