Small Craft Advisory - Green Bay

Small Craft Advisory Guide Service specializes in introducing anglers of all skill levels to the beautiful waters of Green Bay and its tributaries.

The season begins in spring, when hungry Walleye run up the Fox, Peshtigo, Menominee, and Oconto rivers in search of the ideal spawning grounds. This time of year gives you plenty of chances to land double digits and land a trophy at almost every hookset by jigging, along with casting and trolling crankbaits.

Later in spring, you can check the bite in the Bay, working along the shallow water reefs and humps or warmer shorelines. There, you will most likely be trolling crankbaits or jigging.

If you want to search for Walleye in summer, you will be heading to the deeper water, also referred to as “the mud.” Good “eater” fish and trophies can be found by trolling crankbaits or harnesses or maybe even jigging. Later in summer, your guide will be concentrating on jigging the numerous shoals and reefs.

And finally, if you are planning a Walleye trip in the fall months, you can head to the Fox River for a trolling session and enjoy a relaxing day on the water.

All this magic will take place on one of the driest boats around, a 22’ Nitro. Its single 350 HP Mercury engine will power you to the hottest grounds around. Your guide usually calls them the “Lamborghini” of Walleye boats. It will be equipped with all the necessary gear, bait, and lures for you to make a great catch possible.
