May 31 2016 Fishing report Green Bay

 

 

 

 

Walleye fishing has been very good this past week with water temps hitting the 70 degree mark.

Opening weekend of the Wisconsin opener had cold water and a cold front negative bite. Paul Below my client/ for the afternoon had a great time and we boated some great walleyes in 2 -3 foot waves fishing til dark.

Brandon Gitter prefished with me for the opener on Friday right before. We found 74 degree air temps and water temps in the low 50’s. We ¬†caught 15 nice walleyes up to 28 inches making Brandon’s 30 th birthday almost as exciting as the birth of his 1 month old son Hudson!!

Cold weather and cold fronts prevailed. I was finding walleyes active in deep water 14 to 20 fow. Catching some really great big fish in those depths.

Warm temps have now brought walleyes shallow and I am doing all jig / cast / non trolling trips on Green Bay with 35 fish days and lots of fun!

Green Bay is so much fun. If you ¬†haven’t become proficient catching walleyes with jigs you should spend some time with me out on the water. The investment is well worth the reward and knowledge in my opinion.

For example we trolled and caught 12 walleyes in 3 hours span. We then switched to jigs and caught another 20 fish in 1 hours time! we caught way more fish than trolling. That is common for me.

My advice is that you have to commit to this type of fishing for a day and put away the trolling gear. You will catch more fish and bigger fish too!
