Oconto Fishing Reports - Walleyes

8 posts in this topic

We're heading up to try some of the river mouths in the bay around the Oconto area. Has anyone heard any reports? I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question but any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

The ice is out and they are getting walleyes now. There is some ice still floating around depending on wind direction. Water temps in the mid 40's depending how shallow you are. They are doing really well in University Bay just NE of the mouth of the Fox river in Green Bay. Good luck!

I've heard that the fox river and the Bay outside the mouth of the river can be gang busters. Thanks for the reply. We'll be headed up to Oconto on the 23rd. I'll try to post and let you know how we do.

The bay didn't disappoint us but the weather sure did. We ended the day Saturday with 17 walleyes, the biggest was 24" and the smallest was 21" Nice solid fish but nothing huge. Sunday was a little too rough for my blood so we headed up North to the border and tried the river, ended the day with 21 fish. The first fish of the day was a beaut!!! 30"!!! Most came on spinners but we picked up a few with shallow running sticks about 40' behing the boards in the bay. That's it for me on Green bay for this year, we'll be coming back in July to Baily's harbor for Salmon. Good luck to all.

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.

      Edit: Sounds like the 2nd moves to a 1st in the ducks clear the 2nd round of the playoffs. Not sure I would have paid that price.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
