Sturgeon Bay’s rich fishing history goes back centuries. Both commercial and sport fishing have thrived ever since man arrived on the Door Peninsula. Its uniqueness completely evolves around its geological existence. When great glaciers carved out the Great Lakes, it formed a peninsula surrounded by two distinct bodies of water.
On the lake side of Sturgeon Bay’s shoreline lies one of only a handful of reefs along lake Michigan’s shoreline. Known to the Lake Angler as the Bank Reef, it holds the distinction as Lake Michigan’s most popular reef structure. Schools of bait-fish are attracted to the Bank and naturally the BIG fish follow. The Wisconsin State Record Chinook Salmon came from the Bank.
The bay side is known for its trophy Walleye, Small Mouth Bass, Northern Pike, Musky and an excellent Perch fishery. Couple this with access to Lake Michigan allows opportunities for some of the best King Salmon, Brown Trout, and Steelhead, as well as Lake Trout.
The same scenic shorelines that offer ideal habitat for all of the fish, also allows anglers to fish more in Sturgeon Bay. Both shorelines have bays and harbors that offer protection from wind and waves that no other area can provide. There is always a protected shoreline that’s waiting to be fished. And while your fishing you will be treated to the finest scenery found anywhere. With the best fishing on the planet, great scenery, loads of fish to catch, and an endless season….
