Sturgeon Bay’s Great Fishing!

The month of May, to most fishermen, means the start of the open water season. Everyone knows that the fishing around Sturgeon Bay never ends, but May is a long-awaited month to the avid angler.

It means bass fishing is open, walleye limits expand to five (5), perch fishing starts, and the musky season is in full swing. It’s pretty easy to see why Sturgeon Bay, Door County is THE choice for today’s sport fisherman.

From trophy smallmouth, walleye, northern pike, perch and musky, they’re all here in May and ready to be caught. And as the weather warms up, you can bet the salmon season on Lake Michigan won’t be far behind.

Sturgeon Bay offers great fishing from bass and walleye to northern and perch!

Fishing tournaments occupy the weekends of local fishermen as well as out-of-town guests and that means that spouses and families have plenty of time to enjoy what Sturgeon Bay, Door County has to offer.

Fun shops, wineries, brew pubs, and unique tours can fill up one’s free time pretty quickly, so make sure to book a few extra days to see all that this waterfront community has to offer.

Make sure to request your 2018 Activity Guide and let your planning begin!
