Wind Shift Day on the Bay
Show Date: August 3rd & 4th, 2019
Location: Bay of Green Bay, Oconto, Wisconsin
Guide: Brett Jolly [715-581-5678 | captainjollycharters.com]
If you want to catch walleyes this time of year, the Bay of Green Bay is a great place to go whether you want eaters or trophies. Our guide, Captain Brett Jolly, called us there last-minute because of a good wind forecast. He says that if the wind is blowing, it pushes baitfish up onto the rock bars, and that’s where the walleyes are. We prefer to jig, and as long as there is wind, we will catch them jigging.
What is nice about the Bay this time of year is the versatility. If you want to concentrate on getting a personal best size, there are spots for that. If you want to fill a cooler, and have a nice fish fry, there are spots for that. Both of those spots can be jigged or trolled, depending on what the weather gives you the day you’re out. Nothing is guaranteed, but this time of year on the Bay is very close.
Brett has his son, Nash, along with us; we always love to see kids get into the sport of fishing, and Nash is certainly into it big time!
We have all sorts of weather while we’re out, including a full 180º wind switch, with rain and storms. With all that, we still manage a full and fantastic day of fishing.
