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. Advertisements
Lake Trout fishing has started to slow with the cooling water. The fish aren’t suspended as much and they are laying close to the bottom making them hard to catch. There are still some people trying for them in the main lake basin.
Smallmouth bass are actively feeding in 21-28 ft of water off the main lake points. Look for hard bottom and scattered weeds. They are aggressively hitting nightcrawlers and small yellow perch caught in Lake Geneva. Some of the fish I caught were in excess of 20 inches. For fishing the yellow perch, I use a […]
Bluegills have moved out into the 18-20 ft depth range. My best spot is by Knollwood or by Elgin Club. Use leaf worms on a split shot and single hook straight beneath the boat. The fish are averaging 9 inches, so it’s actually been quite a bit better average than on Delavan.
Smallmouth bass have been sporadic. With the spawn completed, they are chasing their dinner. If you find a school of bait fish, you will find the smallmouth bass right behind them. I’ve been either drop shotting 4 inch green pumpkin worms or slowly reeling in a jig and a grub tail. The best depth has […]
Largemouth bass have been biting in the shallows in 3-4 ft of water. The best location has been Trinkes or Abbey Harbor. They can be caught on a split shot rigged nightcrawler or a green pumpkin Senko. With the chilly weather over the weekend, you need to fish really slow to get the bite.
Largemouth bass are in a transition between the summer and fall bite. As the water cools the bass will move shallow. My best success last week was in 21-22 ft of water using a drop shot with 4 inch plastics or lindy rigged nightcrawlers. The best location is by Covenant Harbor or the weed line […]
Walleye fishing remains excellent when there is any wind at night. The bite is best between 9:00 pm and 2:00 am. Medium diving stick baits have been producing most of the fish. Chrome & blue and chrome & black have been producing well. Fish the stick baits just above the weed line. The best location […]
