Fishing Conditions Update
Spring Fishing Update from Door County, Wisconsin
May 1, 2018

We’ve had spring snow in Sturgeon Bay, but that’s not putting a damper on our excitement for the upcoming bass fishing season. While the ice is still receding in some parts of Door County, we’re busy getting equipment and boats ready.

If you didn’t see our last two blog posts, be sure to check them out. We posted an overview of our trophy walleye fishing, plus a look at fishing for brown trout on Lake Michigan. We think these big browns are one of the most underrated fishing opportunities in the area! On the other hand, it’s easy to see why the giant lake run brown trout tend to be overshadowed…

Why Door County is #1

The trophy walleye fishing and smallmouth bass fishing here is simply outstanding. For any bass fishing enthusiast, Door County should be a top destination. It’s no secret why Sturgeon Bay is a hub for tournaments and why it has been named the #1 bass fishery in the country!

Targeting Sturgeon Bay Smallmouth

Smallmouth fishing kicks off here at the beginning of May. This time of year, we fish shallow water less than 10 feet deep, and sometimes as little as two feet of water. In the spring we’re mostly fishing shorelines and along transitions, breaks and shallow drop-offs. In the mid-summer and fall we may spend more time fishing along reefs and humps.

What to Expect

Every day on the water here is different. But anglers visiting Door County, Wisconsin come to expect really nice size fish in the two to five pound range. Some days, we may be catching truly big bass, while other days we might be catching a whole bunch of two-pounders. No matter what the conditions dictate, having fun is our number one priority!
