Walleye fishing in Door county reefs and structure Sunday and Monday Heat and rain.
Sunday had 4 foot waves and almost mid 90 air temps and high winds. Monday had rain in the mix. We boated Trophy fish every day.
Deep water off structure targeting bait balls worked with both cranks and spinner rigs.
Shallow water structure fishing– We used both cranks and spinners. I found the bigger walleyes hit the cranks and smaller walleyes. I keep fish for eating 22 inches and under and release the fish over that size.
A tagged fished we caught was a male 29 inches and was estimated to be 22 years old by the DNR. Hard to believe they can live that long!
Jigging for walleyes has also been great. Sometimes the biggest fish are taken this way too but it is a technical bite too.
Walleyes are everywhere– and getting them to bite is always what the fisherman must figure out each day! That challenge is what I live for out on the water! — and that is what I love about fishing.
I am also targeting smaller fish 18-22 inches in the lower bay for a jig/casting/trolling trips as well. Some trips are non trolling on Green Bay.
I have some openings next week call, email or text me.

Fishing is still good.
I fished with Dan Nortman and his Daughter age 11 Mckayla and his good friend Captain Brad Eastman from Algoma– a salmon fishing Guru! Brad is always a easy going guy that really like to fish even on his days off!!
Give Kinns Charters of Algoma, Wi. a call and ask for Brad if you want some great salmon action!
We had no wind and bright sun and we still got walleyes with changing tacitics at noon. The key was finding the “magic Depth” were the feeding walleyes were active. Once we did this we changed are presentation up and increased speed to 1.7 mph to create a reaction bite.
We released trophies from 26-28 inches and kept eaters that were 18 to 22 inches.
Great guide day on Bay with the Janssen women Mother /daughter trip with me.
Kat age 12 caught 28,28, a pair 5 minutes a part! Kat’s arm was so tired from the fight she just set lines after that!
Jess caught 27,27,26 25 23, 22,21.
The only complaint was only 2 for dinner with all the GIANTS realesed. We lost a probable 30 PLUS

Late report for Last Thursday
Fishing has been the best ever and it has been disappointing depending on the day. Great days are there to be had too.
Last thursday we had clouds ALL DAY and wind. My boat only jigs, casts. We had a 27, 25,24,24, 22,22 and others 17-21 (kept 9).
Other days Dinks/ sheep and some nice perch and crappies. Wind or really lack of it; is tough to fish the way I do on lake Winnebago when not trolling.
I have been using crawlers and leeches and some days there is definitely a preference one way or another.
I have been fishing with a lot of the same guys I fished with last year or in previous years! Thanks everyone!
All I can say is try everything, drift, anchor, cast jigs, cranks and use slip bobbers. down size to 6# mono on some rods even. Fish weeds, rocks .
I have a few openings and am also doing very well on Green Bay. Call or email if you want to get with me.

Great Walleye fishing. Started out with a Strong NE wind and 3 footers . I had Dave and shane out and they got sea sick in 45 minutes so I took them in and their trip was over! I headed back out to rough seas and found fish everywhere.
I did quite a bit of moving and located a couple nice Pods of walleyes N of Oconto in 10- 22 fow. Some fish I graphed and others I did not mark. I fished the botom 2/3 rds of the water column with Harnesses. Purple was the hot color Small blades.
I ended up releasing most fish. I took a giant fish to the taxidermist. I couldn’t believe it was as big as it was this late?
I realeased 28s ,24s etc. I do not keep fish for the table bigger than 22 inches.
I have a opening for 1 -2 all day –on Friday if you are interested ? Call or email me.
