Green Bay is an arm of Lake Michigan, located along the south coast of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and the east coast of Wisconsin. It is separated from the rest of the lake by the Door Peninsula in Wisconsin, the Garden Peninsula in Michigan, and the chain of islands between them. Green Bay is 120 miles long, with a width ranging from about 10 miles. Captain Jolly specializes in musky, walleye and perch trips, but can also accommodate anglers looking for other species such as trout and salmon, catfish, bass, or pike. The Bay of Green Bay and the Fox River provide some of the hottest big fish action in the world for all species.

Lake Michigan, or the big pond as many Wisconsinites know it, is the number one most frequently visited water in Wisconsin and it’s easy to see why. Whether by boat or on shore, a fishing pole will bring you some of the state’s best and most diverse fishing, not to mention picturesque views.

And with more than 15 million fish stocked annually to keep populations healthy – there’s a good chance they’ll be a bite at your line.
