Door County smallmouth bass fishing has been going good lately until this inland hurricane moved across the great lakes bringing with it wind gusts reaching at times near 60mph for a couple of days. The weather has now moved out and we are now able to get back out on the water chasing after trophy smallmouth bass. We have been finding success lately fishing in water depths ranging anywhere from 15 to 30 feet of water depending on the day and weather conditions. Water temps are dropping each day and the smallmouth bass are really going to be feeding up before the long cold winter ahead so now until it is just too cold to be on the water is a great time to catch that true trophy.
We are finally going to be settling into a much warmer weather pattern and yes the spring bass fishing season is upon us finally. With water temperatures warming each day the big pre-spawn bass are beginning to show up in the shallows more every day and the fishing should really get fired up here quickly. Here is a picture of a 22 inch 7.75lb bass we caught yesterday.
We are finally getting into more of a seasonal weather pattern which has been taking way too long to get here. The door county walleye fishing has been great and is only improving every day with good numbers of walleyes being caught every trip. We have been casting for walleyes using snap jigging techniques to catch our fish in water depths ranging from 15 feet of water out to around 30 feet of water finding walleyes shallower one day and deeper the next depending on weather conditions. This spring pattern will continue to be good right through the month of May.
Door County walleye fishing has been going well over the past month or so. We have been finding good success both casting and trolling for the walleyes. Most of our action has been fishing water depths ranging from 20 to 30 feet of water finding fish a bit deeper on sunny days and a bit shallower on cloudy or windy days. Moving through the month of September we will be concentrating more on casting for the walleyes during the day and also doing some nighttime trolling for the fish.
