The night crawler rig has been the bait of choice for me. The top water bite has been effective in the early morning or in the evening. Try the chrome zara spook or the chrome and blue chug bug
Bluegills are still very deep. The best depth has been 29-30 ft. They are biting on small ice jigs tipped with small red worms. The best approach is straight lining beneath the boat.
Bluegill fishing has been very good in 18-20 ft of water. The best location has been by Elgin Club or in Geneva Bay. You want to use leaf worms fished on a split shot right on bottom.
Smallmouth bass have been very evasive. They are in their summer pattern and are nomadically cruising the lake with the pods of bait fish. The best way to catch them is in the early morning around the bait fish pods using top water lures. You want to use chrome and blue chug bugs for the […]
Perch fishing has been fantastic. The fish are in 12 ft of water. To catch the bigger fish, you need to use bigger minnows. You want to slip bobber rig about 1-2 ft off bottom. The best locations have been by Rainbow point or by Knollwood.
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.
Walleye Pike are biting at night on the nights where the wind is blowing. If the wind isn’t blowing, fishing has been very slow.
Rock Bass and Bluegills are still being caught all over the lake. Nightcrawlers fished on the split shot rig produce most of the action. The best depth has been 8-15 ft. of water. My best location has been by Coleman’s Point drifting to Knollwood.
