Bassmaster's 100 Best Bass Lakes of 2014 Announced

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.

All of the Fun — None of the Work

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.
