Fishing Tips for Chequamegon Bay

on February 17th

The fishing is decent right now. There are fish being caught but don’t expect too much. The best areas are in 15+ feet of water. If you go out be super carful; between the wind and the heat the ice is getting treacherous. Good luck fishing!

The fishing has not been the best lately but you can catch a good mixed bag of fish (trout, pike, perch, and walleye) if you work at it. Try starting out in 6-10 feet of water and moving out or in from there. The ice is about 5 inches in most spots but there are still thin areas so be careful. Good luck fishing!

Ice thick enough to ice fish on does not cover the bay (yet). However I recommend taking advantage of the fantastic inland fishing until the bay firms up. Good luck fishing and have a Merry Christmas.


Fishing Tips for Chequamegon Bay

on October 26th

Casting deep running crankbaits, soft plastics, and live bait in 28-8 feet of water has been producing good numbers of trout, salmon, big pike, and smallmouth bass lately. The best areas to fish are flats, rocks, any weeds, and drop offs. Good luck fishing! All most every angler that comes off the lake after a day of musky fishing is saying the same thing; the fishing is hard but there are fish biting and some of those fish are big enough to make you pee your pants. The best baits are suckers and big soft plastics. The best spots change day to day depending on conditions so I recommend stopping at a bait shop and asking where they are biting. Good luck fishing!

The smallmouth fishing has been good lately with a good number of nice fish caught. The only down side is the fish are found everywhere from weeds up shallow to rocks out deep and everything in between. Once you find them you should be able to get them to bite crankbaits, tubes, and live bait. The salmon are still being caught near the creeks two. The best part is the fishing is only going to get better as the weather gets colder. Try fishing with spoons, crank baits, jigs, spinners, and live bait. Good luck fishing!

Since the cool almost cold weather has really dropped the water temps the salmon are moving near the streams. There are salmon and trout being caught as shallow as 30 feet already. Good luck fishing!


Fishing Tips for Chequamegon Bay

on August 15th

While the fishing inland cools off with the warmer water temps the fishing in the bay just keeps going on hot as ever. Smallmouth bass: You can find smallmouth bass throughout the bay but they are primarily found near weeds in 5-12 feet of water. I would consider using heavy spinner baits, deep diving cranks, jerk baits, swimming tubes, or using jig combos as well. You can also find nice fish near places like the Rock Pile, the Breakwall, Long Island, and the Hot Pond. Walleyes: For best results try trolling weightless spinners near weeds in 5-15 feet of water early in the morning. Pike: Most of the big fish 35+ inches have moved out deep but you can still catch tons of nice fish by fishing spinner baits, cranks baits, and bigger suckers near weeds. Good luck fishing!
