Just planned a trip to Sturgeon Bay it's gonna be a long drive but I can't wait to get there.

Who's been there? What should I expect? Are those Smallies easy to catch? What pound test and what kinda baits?

I don't know if it is or not my wife and boy are in Illinois visiting her parents and I'm going up there to join them. I got to looking at the map trying to find a place to fish when I get there and Sturgeon Bay is 6 hours north. I talked my wife into taking a 3 day trip up to the Bay while we are there. I hope it's on Big Time!!!

Forget the 12 hour round trip, some of the best small mouth fishing is on the south end of Lake Michigan.

I would suggest the following:
- Drop shot Berkley Gulp 3" Fry Worm (6 lb floro leader)
- Keitech Sing Impact 4" (Smallmouth Magic / Green P.) 6lb or 8lb Floro. 1/4oz.
- Green Pumpkin Coffee Tube 1/4 oz.
- Top Water / jerk baits

Find offshore breaks close to deep water this time of year. YouTube is your friend and don't be afraid to go north. It is a blast!

The Classic had light weights there 15 years ago.
