It has been an awesome ice fishing season here in Door County, Wisconsin, but it’s almost time to shift gears. Before we know it, we will be in the boat, fishing for trophy walleye and big brown trout!

We’d like to thank all of our guests who joined us this winter for ice fishing. We came away with lots of great memories and we hope you all did too. We’ve got a lot to keep us busy over the following months, but we hope to see many of you back again for ice fishing next winter here on Sturgeon Bay and Green Bay.

Up next though, we turn our attention to chasing big walleye and browns in shallow water along the shorelines of Sturgeon Bay, Green Bay and Lake Michigan. If you’re looking for that 10-pound trophy walleye, this is the best time of year to get it done!

Giant walleye begin moving into shallow water to spawn during these spring months, and this is when we target them along steep shoreline breaks and drop-offs. Until May 1st when the season opens and limits increase, this is strictly a trophy fishery. During the spawning months, we’re looking for that one, trophy fish.

These early spring months are also the perfect time to be going after giant brown trout. Big browns also work the shallow water this time of year, making it a great time to put some of these awesome fish in the boat.

Once the season opens up in May and we have a five walleye limit, it becomes a numbers game. It’s all about catching numbers of nice walleye and still locating some big fish. When the spawn tapers off though, our days become less about finding one big fish, and more about catching limits of great eating walleye!

Additionally, May is when we start fishing for big, trophy smallmouth bass. Bass fishing here is absolutely outstanding, evidenced by the many tournaments, including Bassmaster, which are held here. With so many great options and so many big fish to target, we are anxious for these spring fishing trips to begin!
