Salmon (Chinook) Fishing in Sturgeon Bay

Salmon fishing in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin has had a solid reputation across the country since the '70s. That was when Chinook and Coho Salmon were introduced to the Great Lakes and this sport fishery took swing.
 
Today, these silvery fighters make the Bay their playground from April to October and anglers from all over the US come to chase them. The size of the fish fluctuates as they grow and prepare for the spawning season, when you can catch big 20- and 30-pounders. You will mostly be trolling for them in the deeper waters using an assortment of lures, though live bait is popular as well, depending on the season.
 
Sturgeon Bay is familiar to freshwater anglers who come here to get their groove on, and Salmon season is as productive as it is exciting. Very few fish fight as fiercely as Salmon, and even fewer taste as good, so it’s a no-brainer why they’re such a popular catch.
 
Booking a fishing trip with a charter captain will significantly improve your chances of having a successful and fun day on the water. You will have all the necessary fishing equipment on board, and you only need to buy a valid Wisconsin fishing license with a Salmon stamp.
 
If you’ve never had the chance to go Salmon fishing in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, this is a great chance to expand your fishing horizons.
