With summer in full swing action is going strong for multiple species including Walleye Smallmouth Bass and Salmon. Walleyes are taking up residence in there mid basin summer areas responding strongly to crawler harnesses trolled slowly behind planer boards. Smallmouth bass are chasing soft plastic presentations fished both shallow and in deeper water along with salmon taking advantage of low light periods both morning and evening eating both flasher fly combinations along with various spoon presentations. Summer time is a great time to take advantage of some fantastic fishing opportunities far many different species.
This is a fishing report for Monday July 16th. We fished for Walleyes today out of Sturgeon Bay for a few hours and we found some pretty good success. We spent some time casting in some shallow water catching only a couple of sheep heads and a couple of Bass before we began trolling crawlers and spinners. We began trolling in 15 to 25 FOW having some good success with 6 fish on our first pass with fish ranging from 20 to 24 inches along with a few sheeps. On our second trolling pass we caught a 28 inch fish right off the bat only to find the wind to let up along with the bite. We caught one more Walleye along with another sheep before we went in . Plenty of summer walleye action ahead of us with action to only get better. Good fishing and as always be safe.
