August 22 2012 Target off shore structure for Door County Walleyes

Mid summer Walleye fishing generally finds us searching out the presence of walleyes on and around off shore structure. We are generally using one of two different techniques to to fish for the Walleyes. One technique is trolling crawler harnesses behind in-line weights and the other technique is trolling various different crank baits behind in-line planer boards. As August came in with unstable cooler weather the fishing was rather inconsistent but now with warmer more stable weather fishing has much improved. August and September are great times to target trophy Walleyes here in Door County so plenty of time left to come enjoy some late summer Walleye fishing.

August 1st-4th 2012 Door County Walleyes and Bass

With summer in full swing and water temps reaching close to there warmest peaks fishing for both walleyes and Smallmouth Bass have been going very strong. Having a number of different areas that we are fishing for Walleyes they are finally starting to take up residence in there summer locations in the northern reaches of Green Bay.

Catch of the Day


Our typical summer fishing techniques for fishing Walleyes on the bay consist of fishing both crawler harnesses behind inline weights or behind snap weights. Another option would be to fish crankbaits such as baits like Rapala Husky Jerks or Rapala Tail Dancers. Always remember to play around with different colors depending on weather you have lots of sun or cloud cover.

The Smallmouth Bass fishing has still been going very strong in shallow water and in deeper water. On days with windy conditions we are seeing great action in the shallow water areas with days of less wind we target both fish in shallow water and deeper water. We are getting fish on different soft plastic presentations along with catching fish on spinner baits.

With lots of time left for fantastic summer time action for both Smallmouth Bass and Walleyes we will continue to see increasing opportunities for the Walleyes in the northern portions of Green Bay along with lots of opportunities to catch some quality Smallmouth Bass
