Sturgeon Bay Smallmouth Bass Fishing – Door County Wisconsin

Click here to SUBSCRIBE to my channel:

In this video my buddy Ryoji and I head out to Sturgeon Bay looking for some big smallmouth bass. Ryogi and I have had some great fishing days together so of course when I go back home I have to schedule a day or two to fish with him!

We started in Little Sturgeon Bay and worked are way around the area. We hit places like Rileys Bay, Sand Bay, Sawyer Harbor and of course the Sturgeon Bay Flats. Fishing was a bit tough for us but we did manage to catch a few good smallies. The fish were just starting to move up and the next few days would have been epic out here! Lots of good pre spawn fish roaming and plenty of fish up on beds as well. Sturgeon Bay is such a great fishery and has so many fish it is unreal at times.

Who is SmallmouthCrush?

Travis Manson was born and raised where the giant Smallmouth Bass of the north live…WISCONSIN. He started fishing from the bank at a young age and spent most of his childhood with a rod in his hand. Travis is primarily a self-taught angler that is always learning and experiencing this amazing sport of fishing. He started out fishing for walleyes and fishing in local walleye tournaments, but then in his mid 20’s, he caught the BASS BUG and has been hooked every since. He competed at the highest level in bass fishing on the Bassmaster Elite Series for a number of years. He is a fishing guide offering trips on the Chesapeake Bay for largemouth bass(year round), guided trips for smallmouth back in Wisconsin (during select times) and trophy smallmouth bass guided trips in Upstate New York (May-November) His Youtube Channel is named after his passion for the smallmouth bass and will be used as a platform for “how-to” videos, on the water instruction, crazy on and off the water topics and vlogs on the day in the life of a fishing addict! Hope you enjoy!
