Fish, Lake Geneva 8/2/21 – 8/9/21

Dave Duwe Fishing Guide

The best success on largemouth bass is coming while flipping piers or fishing top water lures in 8-10 ft of water.  Fishing top water has been the best bite in the early morning.  Either chug bugs or Pop-R’s are producing most of the action.  Chrome/Blue or Chrome/Black are the best colors.

Some Walleyes are being caught at night while trolling crank baits.  Use Bandit shallow Walleye crankbaits or Rapala’s fished on planer boards.  There has been a lack of floating weeds on the lake so trolling has been fairly easy.  The best locations are Abbey Springs or Fontana Beach.

They can be caught on their beds or just off their beds.  Nightcrawlers on a split shot rig are a good option.  Lizards fished on a light weight and a spinning rod have produced quite a few fish.  The best location has been Geneva bay or Trinkes.

Northern Pike remain in the shallows chasing the other small fish.  They can be caught on black and silver Husky Jerks or Smithwick Rattling Rogues.  The best location is by the Fontana Beach or in Williams Bay.  Some of the recent catches are between 25 and 30 inches.

Bluegill and sunfish have been great.  The fish are in 21 to 26 feet of water.  Small leaf worms fished on a split shot rig.  Work the bait six inches off bottom.  The fish are off the weeds, I locate the fish locator before I start fishing.

Bluegill fishing remains excellent.  The best depth has been 20-25 ft of water.  The best bait has been small pieces of nightcrawler or red worms.  The best success has come straight lining beneath the boat and slowly drifting.  I’ve been fishing them by Elgin Club and by Gage Marine.
