CURRENT ICE FISHING REPORT – DOOR COUNTY, WI

Wisconsin Fishing Opener

In just a few days, May 2nd, Wisconsin's fishing season officially opens!  With forecasts in the 60's and 70's and not much wind, this could be one of the best fishing openers we've seen weather-wise!  The Walleye limit will go from 1 to 5 fish per person, and our world-renowned Smallmouth fishery officially opens as well!  (For complete listing of regulations, CLICK HERE) Water temps are in the mid-high 40's, and we have been having some AWESOME days catching big walleyes-this one pictured below (28.5") was just caught and released a few moments ago (4/28/15).  As we approach our busiest season of open water guiding the waters of Door County, we are optimistic for another successful fishing season.  Best of luck to you this spring fishing season, and remember to CPR-Catch, Photo, Release!  If you are looking for a great home-base to stay while fishing in our neck of the woods (Southern Door County) check out sandbaybeach.com.  Be sure to mention you are a fisherman to receive additional discounts! Hope to see you enjoying our spectacular Door County fishery this season!

Another Long Door County Ice Fishing Season?

Although this winter started off a mild one in Door County, it seems as though Jack Frost has blasted us with full force the last few weeks.  Listening to the news this morning, the weatherman stated this may be another record-setting year for the amount of ice coverage on the Great Lakes-now approaching over 85%.  That means our Door County Ice Fishing season will be another long one!  If you haven't had the opportunity to come up ice fishing this season, there's still time!  We also have one more event scheduled this season-our Ice Walleye School, March 13-15, 2015.  Hosted by Dale Stroschein at the Sand Bay Beach Resort, you will learn the tips, tactics and locations that have made Dale a successful and awarded (former World Record Holder for a Walleye caught through the Ice!!) ice walleye angler.  So, have no fear, there still is LOTS of time yet to get your Door County Ice Fishing trip in yet this season!  Image below was taken off the NOAA Coastwatch site (satellite imagery from 2/23/15) showing the amount of ice cover on the Bay of Green Bay, WI.

Door County Fishing Schools – Spring 2015

We have set the dates for our Door County Fishing schools this Spring!  Our Door County Walleye school will be held May 1-3, 2015 (opening weekend!!) and our Door County Bass school will be held May 29-31, 2015.  Come join in the fun and learning about this great fishery from USCG Captain and Fishing Hall of Famer, Dale Stroschein.

BASSMASTERS AOY Tournament to come to Sturgeon Bay

For many years, I have known about our outstanding Smallmouth Bass fishing in Door County, WI.  And, with recent local tournaments showcasing huge weights, it's only natural that eventually the spotlight would fall on Sturgeon Bay and the surrounding waters to host a major BASS Elite event.  So, next September, they chose my backyard-the waters of Door County-to host their end of year championship!  I am excited that they will be showcasing not only our phenomenal fishery, but the area in general.  Door County is a destination for the WHOLE family!  I hope to see you enjoying our fishery soon, and although the Bass may be all the buzz right now, remember, Door County is one of the ONLY fisheries where you have a chance at catching trophy-sized fish in several species: Smallmouth, Walleye, Musky, Pike, Brown Trout & Salmon!!! 

Tight Lines,
Capt. Dale Stroschein
