The spring walleye fishing has started early here in door county due to the unusually warm weather we have received the past couple of weeks. With water temps in the mid 40s fish are beginning to move shallow and feed up in preparation for there spawn. Here are a few pics from the other nights fishing trip fishing should continue to stay strong for a while here.Now is the time to really catch a true trophy walleye so dress warm,prepare to fish late and be prepared to catch a fish of a life time.
We put a full day in yesterday fishing for Northern Pike and what a fun day it was. With things being early yet for the bigger numbers of large pike, our action for numbers of fish was pretty steady and consistent through out the day. Water temps were right around 38 to 39 degrees but with the weather forecast things are going to be warming up every day. We used both live bait on three way rigs and also jigged for them. We caught fish on both presentations but the jigs produced more bites for us.Spring time offers fantastic fishing opportunities for multiple species but don’t overlook the Pike fishing it can be the hottest fishing of the season with a chance at a true trophy.
We fished for Northern Pike today from 8am till around 2pm finding pretty consistent success through out the day. We used a few different presentations today one being jigs and soft plastics, also used hair jigs, and also used live bait on three way rigs. With water clarity being a little dirty and the wind blowing strong out of the west our best presentation was our live bait rigs. Most of our fish ran on the small to medium size but we were fortunate to land one nicer female Pike that we took photos of and released. Water temps were around 38 to 39 degrees. Good luck fishing and as always be safe.
Well, the 2012 ice fishing season has come to an end. It was the most unusual season with the warm temps and lack of snow. Despite that, the ice fishing season was productive. Starting next week, open water fishing begins! The boat is ready to go and all of the ice fishing equipment is put away til December, hopefully.
