    Wow; can't believe so many people have read your post and not responded. Obviously your trip is long past. If you're going back, it's hard to beat Bay Shore just south Dyckesville. It's a Brown County ramp. If you're looking for local information in the future, call the guys at Howies Tackle in Sturgeon Bay. They always know what's going on for walleyes, smallies, and salmon.

    Not a hotspot in my mind. Most of the fish in the lower bay are going to spawn in the adjacent rivers, especially the Fox. Anytime now the Fox river near DePere will be loaded with walleyes and fishermen. You could fish the fox river itself, or wait for the spawn to end and the fish to disperse back into the bay. As the water warms, the fish will push north onto adjacent flats, humps and reefs and then out over the "mud".

    The lower bay in general is normally very good by May. This year could be a little earlier depending on what happens over the next couple weeks. Last night the water temp in the river was 41.3, so it is definitely on the way up.. We always tell our customers that May is typically the best month. The lower bay warms up and is loaded with hungry fish. Once you figure them out, it is a blast.. Typical trolling is starting with sticks- mainly flicker shads for us, and eventually going to harnesses.. Good luck.

    Keep an eye on the water temp and clarity. University Bay can be great early on if it isn't more like chocolate milk.
    If you can't see your prop, the eyes can't see your bait. Move in and out of the stained water and you will do fine.

    If you're jigging, frying pan was good tonight. If you're trolling, it was a tough day.. This saturday should be brutal winds, be safe..
