Late Spring Fishing Report on Sturgeon Bay

Early Spring Fishing Report on Sturgeon Bay

Big Walleye in the Sturgeon Bay Area…

Elite Guide Team Captain Caleb Zorn, got an incredible surprise earlier this week.  After chasing giant smallmouth for a few hours, he and his clients decided to try for some Walleye in a new location.  Well…it paid off!  Caleb landed this not-so-typical-this-time-of-year GIANT WALLEYE! 30.5 inches and 10 pound 7 oz fish! Way to go, Caleb!! And isn’t it a cool looking fish??


Mercury Does It Again!

Hats off to Mercury Marine for not only making the number one selling outboard motor, but for always backing the angler and constantly wanting to give back to the community in so many different ways to touch peoples lives in a positive way! So with a number of conference calls with with Mercury’s marketing/social media department and fishing pro’s it finally all came together today very smoothly with the three lucky winners from the Midwest. We all met at our Resort, Sand Bay Beach Resort & Suites, in Sturgeon Bay (On May 30th, 2018)     and after each Pro met their angler who won the fishing outing, we headed over to Sunset Grill for a complimentary dinner provided by Mercury-a great opportunity to get to know each other! We shared some great fishing stories and put together a strong strategy on how we were going to put our winners on some great Walleye action the next day that hopefully they’ll never forget, an experience of a lifetime! As soon as we finished up with dinner, and of course everybody with full bellies, we left Sunset and headed back to the resort so everyone could get a good night sleep in, even with all of the anticipation of what tomorrow had in store for them as they got to spend a day with their favorite Walleye Pro! In the morning after a restless evening waiting to get up to go chase Walleye, everybody met in the parking lot and then we all caravanned to Bay Shore Park to launch our boats. We launched the boats and headed out for a fun day of Walleye fishing and to share our wisdom/techniques with our anglers, so they hopefully learn a few things to have a better experience for them in the future when they go out on their own! Weather was pretty cooperative with south, southeast winds most of the day with a perfect wave for the Walleye to be very cooperative for each of the boats. Mercury Walleye Pro’s, Korey Sprengel, Marianne Pfister Huskey and myself put our anglers, who won the day in the boat with their favorite Pro angler, on all kinds of walleyes throughout the entire day. Korey Sprengel fished with Kevin Wachholz from Oshkosh, Marianne fished with Bradley W. Richardson’s two beautiful young daughters from Roscoe, IL area and I fished with Dylan Knoespel, a student from Brillion, Wisconsin. The overall day couldn’t have gone any more perfect. Every boat caught lots of fish, everyone had a great time and more importantly each lucky winner learned a few tricks to help them catch more Walleye their next time out. Thanks again to Mercury Marine for all you do, and here are a few pics from Dylan’s and my day! #goboldly

Kids Fishing Day

Spring Walleye Fishing in Door County

Spring is well underway in Door County.  We have one Spring Walleye School under our belt and one more coming up next weekend.  Water temperatures are starting to come around and hover around the mid 40 degree mark.  We have been having some sunny and warm days, which has warmed that temp up almost 10 degrees plus in the last week!  We have been focusing a lot of our time on the West shore, but as that bite starts to become more sporadic, we will transition to our backyard on the East side of the Bay of Green Bay.  We are starting to see some post-spawn fish, so if you're still in the market for a big, fat Door County walleye, it's best to focus your efforts in the northern part of the county.  We still have some openings this month with Captain Caleb Zorn or Captain Marc Jackson.  And, don't forget to book your prime May trip as all three of our captains, Dale, Caleb and Marc are starting to fill up!  Tight Lines!
