Fishing report~ Friday
Today I fished over 100 square miles of Green Bay with 2 men that wanted a guide to show them spots and how to target fish. They will be fishing in the Cabela’s tournament next weekend and live 12 hours away.
We fished North, South, East, West — caught fish every place.
Methods trolling cranks, casting cranks while drifting, casting jigs(Plastics)– while drifting.
Trolling out produced the other methods but sometimes there is more than one way to “skin a cat” or in this case “catch fish”. Fished from 15 to 4 fow today.
This is prime time for fishing and one of my favorite times to be out on the water. If you want to learn the area and catch fish give me a call and fish with me a local guide from Green Bay.
I will also be fishing lake Winnebago quite a bit now as well.

Walleye fishing started slow but didn’t end that way.
No wind and higher temperatures really but a damper to the last 3 days of my fishing in the morning.
I made a unilateral decision to make a major move for my client and it paid off.
I found fish again shallow 5-7 fow. Not sure if it was entirely my move or the wind and moderated chop on the water that improved the Walleye bite??
Crawler harnesses with small bladed did make a difference this afternoon we end ended up with 13 nice walleyes!! Pike, perch also made it into the boat that are not pictured here.
Great days on the water ahead Give me a call to book a trip with my guide service.

Windy and walleyes great fishing.
Fished the wind swept shore which today finging walleyes in 3 – 4 fow in 2- 3 waves breaking on shoals.
I had to use my 115 hrs power motor to keep us on fish and not come aground.
Tactics– casting cranks baits #7 # 5 jointed Parrot Rapala Shad raps and my favorite Black shad – Flicker shads. always produce they are the grey natural.
Safety is always my main concern on days like today with powerful winds. So my fishermen did not disappoint. We found a spot that held fish consistently–
we used St Croix 7 foot medium actions with Nano fill 10# We landed 10 fish and lost several nice fish. 18 to 26 1/2 inches.
Great fishing continues on this fabulous fishery ! !

Fished today on the Wind swept shore using crawler harnesses and jigs with plastic.
Half of the 16 fish landed today, 8 were on the jig combos. Rigs were the “Green & Gold Harnesses” with 1/4 oz inline sinkers. Jigs– Orange with dark plastics 4 inch tails. No live bait on the jigs. Very fun bite today!
Fish were from 15 inches to 26 inches.
I have openings this weekend if you want to get out on a great Walleye bite. Friday – Sunday
