I’m either drop shotting small plastic worms or using small yellow perch fished on a lindy rig. Walleye are still being caught at night. The best depth is 12-15 ft.
The best location has been by Colemans Point or by Belvidere Park. Most of the fish are being caught on split shot rigged nightcrawlers. Smallmouth bass have been spotty. All the fish are done spawning.
The water needs to warm up a few degrees to make them more active. Like always, the night bite is the only way to go. Trolling crank baits has been working the best.

Perch still remain in the shallow waters. They are on the hard bottom near points. On Saturday last week, the average size was very good. There was one keeper per five small ones, which is pretty good for Lake Geneva.
Good action can be found in and around the piers in 5-6 ft of water. Fish them with a slip bobber and a leaf worm. Perch are in 10 ft of water. They are location is some of their standard areas such as Rainbow Point and Belvidere Park.
Largemouth bass are being caught on the weedline. The best approach is Carolina rigging green pumpkin lizards or drop shotting Gulp finesse worms, also in green pumpkin.
Lake Trout are still being caught in the main lake basin. Some success is coming on large chrome/blue Rapalas or chrome/black Rapalas fished on a down rigger. The best success has been coming on the suspended fish, 80 ft down in 110 ft of water.
