As good as the fishing is, you’ll get the most enjoyment and success fishing with an experienced guide.  When it comes to experience, equipment and tackle,  nobody beats Reel Action Charters.

Reel Action is set up to fish by whatever tactics are producing the hottest bite.  Sometimes, we’ll fish two or three different methods in a single trip.  That’s another big advantage we offer with the right tackle ready to go at all times.

Smallmouth Bass Fishing

Green Bay & Sturgeon Bay Recognized as Number One Bass Fishery

There's more than just walleye fishing on Green Bay.If there’s one fish Door County anglers have come to rely on over the years it’s the smallie.

These bass might be the toughest freshwater fish pound-for-pound and they’re extremely plentiful in Green Bay.

Action starts in May when the bronzebacks move shallow to spawn, and the fishing doesn’t slow down until ice-up. You’ll  run into some 6 or 7 pounders here, and you will find hoards of 2s and 3s, along with a good number of 4s. This is non-stop fun!

Green Bay is recognized as one of the finest smallmouth fisheries in North America. And that isn’t just guide talk! BassMaster could take its prestigious tournaments anywhere, but they choose to frequently bring them to Green Bay, Wisconsin because they can count on big catches of huge smallmouth bass.  In fact, the BassMaster 1 Million Dollar Toyota BassMaster Angler of the Year Championship will be held in Green Bay and based out of Sturgeon Bay in September of 2015.  

“It seems only appropriate that the 2015 Angler of the Year Championship will be crowned on the best bass fishery in the country,” says James Hall, editor of Bassmaster Magazine. “Sturgeon Bay was ranked No. 1 on BassmasterMagazine’s 100 Best Bass Lakes list this year for two reasons.When you're walleye fishing on Green Bay and they aren't biting -- the smallies probably are!

“One, the population of smallmouth in Sturgeon Bay is second to none. But perhaps more importantly, the average size of the smallies here is world class. Place the world’s best bass anglers on a fishery that produces so many giant bass, and you have the potential for a history-making event.”

Reel Action targets these same “historic” smallies all-season long!  You can join us and fish for these same fish before the pros do! When the 2015 top BassMaster Angler claims the $1 million prize, you can cock your head back and say, “Yeah.  I caught that fish before he did!”
