Smallmouth bass have been caught in 22-24 ft of water. The best bait is lindy rigged nightcrawlers. The leader length should be 18-24 inches fished behind an 1/8 oz or ¼ oz walking sinker depending on the wind.
Walleye action has been okay. All the fish are being caught at night. Most are being taken while trolling or by lindy rigging jumbo leeches. The best time to catch the fish is between 11 pm and 3:30 am.
Rock Bass and Bluegills are literally everywhere throughout the lake. The best depth of water has been 8-15 ft. of water. Nightcrawlers are producing most of the fish. It isn’t hard to go through 10-12 dozen nightcrawlers in a 4-hour guide party. I caught most of the larger rock bass west of Linn Pier.
Perch fishing has been improving. The fish are starting to move into the 12-14 ft. range. The fish can be taken on slip bobbers or by drifting nightcrawlers. The best location has been by Coleman’s point or by Rainbow point.
Bluegills are starting to show up in the shallows. The best locations have been the shallow weeds in Geneva Bay and Trinkies. Bobbers with small leaf worms seem to be producing most of the action. The best depth is 5-6 ft. of water. For shore fishermen, there has been good success off the piers in […]
Some small Bluegills can be caught around the boat dock in Geneva Bay. The best bait is leaf worms fished on a slip bobber. Within the next few weeks, the bluegills will be in very thick as they begin to spawn.
Bluegill and rock bass fishing has been a bit slow as well. The majority of the fish are still suspending in deeper water. With warmer water the fish should be moving shallow within the next few weeks. Right now, you could look for some fish in Williams Bay or Geneva Bay in 7-8 feet of […]
Rock bass are plentiful, with the cooling water. Wherever you find active rock bass, you will most likely find a few small mouth as well. The best depth has been 8-12 ft. of water. All the fish I caught last week were on nightcrawlers.
