It’s the middle of the summer, can you believe it? For me chasing those big Door County smallmouth bass has slowed somewhat, so, now’s a great time to do some recreational kayaking.
Just about every inch of Door County shoreline is so beautiful and worth seeing from the water. But, here are a few you don’t want to miss. Cave Point is one of the most popular spots in the county and with a great launch about a mile south at Schauer Rd. it’s an easy paddle. Just be careful and don’t go on a day when the wind’s blowing.
Tennison Bay in Peninsula Park has one of the best kayak launches in Door County and going north has you paddling by the bluffs and the Peninsula Park lighthouse. Back to the lakeside, launching your kayak at the launch at the end of County T puts you on Lily Bay and just south only 50 yards offshore is half of the City of Glasgow that sunk on October 6, 1917. You’ll be amazed at this very large wreck in only a few feet of clear water.
Google maps is a great tool to identify great kayaking spots and launch locations as you prepare for your time on the water enjoying the incredible beauty of Door County. And, as always, if you have any kayak fishing or kayaking questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
