Walleye fishing here in Door County over the past few weeks has been very good with great catches of walleyes coming on most fishing trips. We have been finding our best success casting for walleyes along shoreline breaks during the morning and throughout the mid day with many quality size walleyes being caught each day. Over the past week we have also had a good trolling bite happening a bit south of Sturgeon Bay using crawler harnesses behind planer boards in water depths from 16 to 22 feet of water. As the weather continues to get warmer and water temps get warmer also the walleye fishing will only get better.
As I write this fishing report we are receiving record breaking amounts of snow along with dangerous wind gusts which is just so disappointing winter just will not let go this year. As far as the walleye fishing has been we have been catching good numbers of quality fish each day we can get on the water. One big challenge that we have had each day on the bay has been finding safe water to fish that does not have moving ice sheets around.Along with fishing on the Bay we have also been catching good walleyes in the rivers along the west shore and to the south. We have been finding success using Rapala ripping raps fished off bottom and also catching good fish on soft plastics such as B-fishin Moxies, Pulse Rs, and paddle tails.One key for us each day has been to experience with color and size throughout the day to maximize your catch that has been very important for us due to the fish not being very active with the cold water temperatures.
