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

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
