Question about fishing Door County, Wisconsin

5 posts in this topic

I'd like to try fishing near shore on the bay side of Door county this July. I've never been there. A quick look at hotel rates shows that it's pretty expensive to stay there in July.

Is there a more economical approach to doing this? The area I'm interested in is about half way from Green Bay to the tip of the peninsula.

Thanks.

I think the further south you stay on the penisula the cheaper the rates. But you're right, it's still spendy out that way. You're paying Chicago vacation rates, that area is crawling with Chicagans spending dough on the weekends.

Thanks. I may have to see if there are some campgrounds. $175 a night is more that I'm willing to pay for a hotel. Either that or forget it.

There are some campgrounds up there. I go up with a group at the begining of August and we camp up near Ellison Bay. I can't remember the name of the place where we stay but reply to this post and put your email in it and I will get the info from my Buddy for you.

Heck for that rate you could get a Charter and Hotel in Algoma, go south my man. Check the chamber of commerce sites for campgrounds and hotels. I'll be in Algoma mid July, hotel rate of $55 per night. I'll spend the rest on gas for the boat. frown.gif

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger
