Smokeys weekly fishing report by Captain Ruffolo5/1/23

More inconsistent weather continued over the past week, but big fish still were had by those in the right locations. The bite has slowed some in Oconto, as water temps have dropped into the 43-45 range. Some fish are still active by City Park, CP2 and the mouth of the Peshtigo River, with hair jigs and rippin raps taking fish. The trolling bite over the mud on the north shore has been good too, with flicker minnows in the 10-12’ deep areas holding walleyes. On the east shore, good walleyes are going near Henderson Point, the cup in Sand Bay, near Stone Quarry and the Chateau. Hair jigs or trolled crankbaits are dominating this catch. In the lower bay, decent catches are going near Bayshore, Geanos Reef and Suamico. Trolled crankbaits have been best. White Bass have started to show up in the Fox River, with good catches taken on minnows, hair jigs, and blade baits. Shore fishing by Metro is still doing very well, crappies, walleye and pike are being caught. If you go, please be safe, and take a kid fishing.

Yah, only at Smokeys!!!
