Complete fun and relaxation for you, your family and your friends. We offer one of the few places in the world that you can go from deep fresh water fishing to inland lake fishing without ever leaving your boat! The lakeside offers Chinook salmon, steelhead, lake trout and brown trout. The bay side is loaded with smallmouth bass, walleye, northern pike, musky and perch. Trophy sized fish of all species are caught every year. Our fantastic fishing is not limited to the open water, we also have an incredible ice fishing season. The city of Sturgeon Bay, Door County is open all year round for your enjoyment.
Bassmaster Magazine's third annual ranking of America's best bass fisheries has been announced, and there is a new champion! Sturgeon Bay beat out the hottest fisheries in the U.S. to take the No. 1 spot for 2014.
Although many rankings were debated by the panel, the top spot was not. "Sturgeon Bay is absolutely on fire right now. It is beautiful. The smallmouth here are giant - nobody even blinks at 6-pounders. And it's not unusual for an angler to catch 60 bass per day. That's what it takes to be named America's best bass fishery." says Bassmaster editor James Hall.
You can enhance your fishing excursion and take the guesswork out of finding the fish by chartering with one of our professional and yet personable, charter fishing guides. Our guides and charters can honestly boast generations of fishing these waters. This isn't a fish tale either. Their boats are clean, up to date, and dependable. The Sturgeon Bay docking facilities are welcoming and maintained. And of course, the fish are ALWAYS biting here... well almost always. Charter fishing, the perfect way to experience a fishing adventure while in Sturgeon Bay, Door County.
