Silver Strike Fishing – Spring, Summer and Fall Seasons
Walleye: End of March – December
For Trophy Walleye the best fishing is the first couple months after the ice melts and at the end of the season before the ice forms. Ice out (March) until mid June and September 1 thru Mid December. Walleye do run throughout the summer as well! We will run the Walleye trips whenever the best time may be, which includes night trips. Typically we fish in the Fox River, Peshtigo and Oconto areas first right after Ice out. Our guides follow the first Walleye run in these ares. We then operate our guided fishing trips in the Sturgeon Bay area following the next Walleye bite. Once the summer hits we typically look for the trophy’s out of Sister Bay, Ephraim and Fish Creek. Then in the fall we will simply take our charters to the best areas during that time period. We do mix Jigging and trolling during all seasons depending what is working best. If you do a 6 or 8 hour trip we can do both!
Small Mouth Bass: May – December
Small Mouth Bass are pretty prominent through out the open water fishing season. Typically in May during their beginning of spawn is a great time to target trophy Bass and then again in the fall, Sept. – Dec. Summer provides nice consistent action for Smallies as well! For our guided trips we typically fish Sturgeon Bay, Fish Creek, Sister Bay, Ephraim and Rowley’s Bay. We run these guided fishing trips based on where the best fishing has been! We will accommodate you in any way possible as well!
Brown Trout: April, May, October, November, December
The best Brown Trout fishing is also the first couple months after the ice melts and at the end of the season before the ice forms. These are the typical Brown trout seasons: Ice out (March) thru mid May and Mid October until Mid December. We run These trips based on the best time of day and will let you know when that is. If you are looking for a guided fishing trip for the Brown Trout we typically fish either Sturgeon Bay, Egg Harbor or Northern Door County.
