    Channel cats are starting to spawn in Sturgeon Bay. I was just recently introduced to catfishing up here, I used to fish them in Arkansas when I was younger and have since focused mostly on other species like Musky.

    Just used a nightcrawler on the bottom near the bridge structures as there is always current flowing toward the lake or back toward the bay (Sturgeon Bay/Green Bay). My wife and I caught 7 cats last night, all small but beats getting skunked!

    I work with a guy who caught a 30lb channel up here last year so now I need to find some more like that!

    Good fishing all!

    deemo99,caught my first Wisconsin cat out of Sturgeon Bay off the fishing pier at Potawatomi state park.
    Be going to Door county in a couple weeks. If you want to get together, send me a pm and we can try to work something out.
