All around Fishing Report – Wisconsin – Smokey’s on the Bay

As the temperatures are dipping the fishing is getting better. The perch bite is still going strong. Vincent Point has been on fire on the east shore and out of the Suamico River on the west shore is doing good. Minnows are working best but some fishermen are having luck with crawlers too. Some nice perch are also being caught in the Duck Creek River and by the 172 bridge on the Fox River.

Walleyes are still being caught on both the east and west shores trolling cranks, some are using harnesses and rip jiggn. The Fox River has been a tough bite during the day as the flood gates are closed by the dam causing the current to be real slow.

Night fishing has been more productive on the Fox using jig and minnows, blade baits, soft plastics and trolling cranks in the deeper channels. Reports of smallies being caught up by the dam casting floating rappalas.

Some nice pike are also being caught by the metro launch casting smaller crankbaits and spoons.

Muskies are going pretty good trolling cranks (RAZ SHADS) on frying pan shoal and in U-Bay. Some nice 50 inch plus fish have been being caught. They should start to migrate to the Fox River soon as the temps drop a little more. For more information give us a call at 920 593 1749. Yah, only at Smokeys!!!
