Winter is barely in its second month and charter fishing operators in Door and Kewaunee counties say they're already fielding calls for spring and summer charters. Many say it's not unusual to get bookings from long-time customers. Fritz Peterson, owner of J-E Fishing Enterprises in Sturgeon Bay, says some dates are already filling up and fast.
Peterson says less than ideal ice fishing conditions may have some customers looking to spring. Though he adds open water on the Fox River is drawing anglers and their boats for the walleye run.
