Smokeys weekly fishing report by Captain Ruffolo 2/27/23

The weather is playing a huge factor on the accessibility of ice and open water around Green Bay. Early this week boat fishing was excellent, with anglers averaging 30 or more walleyes per trip on the Fox River. Hair jigs, blade baits, rippin raps, and jigging with minnows or plastics were all taking fish. A few of the 25” or bigger female walleyes were caught, but the majority of the fish are 17-22”. As of late Thursday, skim ice returned on the river, delaying boat fishing till it warms up. On the Bay, remnants of ice remain around Deadhorse Bay, Suamico, University Bay and Oconto, but great care needs to be taken on the ice. Wind plays a huge role here, and large floating sheets of ice shift with changing wind directions. Check with Smokey’s before going, and use caution. Fishermen are taking pike, perch, and whitefish on the ice. Be safe, and take a kid fishing.
