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
