Bluegills are again shallow.  They are being caught on small leaf worms or on ice jigs tipped with wax worms.  Good locations are Geneva Bay by the Riviera Pier or by Knollwood.  I’ve been fishing them in 6-8 ft of water.

Smallmouth bass are being caught in the 12-14 ft range.  They are aggressively hitting nightcrawlers or football head jigs dragged on the bottom.  On the football head jigs, the best color is rootbeer on a ¼ oz jig head.  The smaller jig head will prevent a lot of the weeds from snagging your bait.  Look […]
