All these years I thought I had to go to Canada for big walleyes. I met a guide who specializes in Door County walleyes. These are huge fish that roam the offshore structure up there. In the last 2 years I have take 2 trips in August when the big girls move in closer. We have boated over 30 waaleyes between 5lbs and 10lbs. The guide averages about 5-6 fish per year over 11 lbs and to many 10lbers to even count. This year I took my dad and my son and both of them scored their biggest walleye ever. You can alos go to the lower bay and catch many 18-22 inchers if you are looking for eaters.
Sometimes it pays to stay in your own backyard. If anyone is interested in going up there I would highly recommend Lynn Niklasch, he fishes many tournaments and guides the upper door county area almost exclusively from August through Labor Day.
Here is his info if anyone is interested:
