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 wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds

          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
