Sport Fishing Charter

Earlier this summer, we had the opportunity to go on a fishing charter with Gary Nault of Gary’s Guide Service and founder of the Sturgeon Bay Sport Fishing Association. Gary’s Guide Service has been fishing in Sturgeon Bay for over the past 25 years and offers many opportunities for you and your family to go out on the water. His years of fishing experience show as he discusses his favorite reefs, successful weigh-ins, and his overall love for Sturgeon Bay. 

The Sturgeon Bay Sport Fishing Association combines nine of the largest and most successful fishing charters in the area. Many of the captains are local and have spent most of their lives here in Sturgeon Bay.  All year-round charters include fish cleaning, equipment, experienced captains, fishing coaching, and much more. 

On the Bay of Green Bay, you can expect to catch walleye, northern pike, perch, and smallmouth bass. Fun Fact: In 2014, Sturgeon Bay was ranked #1 by Bassmaster Magazine as the top bass lake. 

Lake Michigan offers a different variety of fish due to its deep waters and cooler temperatures. You can find King Salmon, Brown Trout, Lake Trout, and SteelHead.
