With the open water fishing coming to a close this year, area anglers can reflect on another banner season of bass fishing which started in early May. Scott Hansen, fishery biologist for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says Door County can take stock in the fact that their smallmouth bass fishery rivals any in the world.
Hansen says Door County is fortunate to have a phenomenal fishery that has the environment and conditions that allows smallmouth bass to proliferate in the area. Door County hosts two huge weekend bass tournaments every spring that brings in hundreds of anglers from all over the Midwest and Canada every May.
