Use drop shot rigs or Carolina rigged green pumpkin lizards. Northern Pike action has been almost non-existent this summer and that continues.
They are not on the weedline. They are about 3 ft outside the weeds in 20-21 ft of water. Try west of Willow Point. Bluegills remain everywhere on the lake. The key to catching them is to stay in the deeper water. The best bite has been in 20-22 ft of water. Belvidere Park or […]
The best bait has been leaf worms fished on a bobber. You want to position the bait about 1 ft above the weeds. The fish have been done spawning for about 2 weeks.
The best locations are in Williams Bay or Geneva Bay. The best depth is 4-5 ft of water. Rock Bass and Bluegills are everywhere. Most of the fish are in the 9-12 ft depth range. I’ve been getting them while drifting nightcrawlers.
The water needs to warm up a few degrees to make it active. Like always, the night bite is the only way to go. Trolling crank baits will work after the warmup. Largemouth bass are biting in 3-5 ft of water.
The most active specie has been the bluegill. Rock bass fishing is becoming a bit more limited. Look for the fish by the Elgin Club or in Geneva Bay, outside the buoys.
Perch are still being caught also in the shallow water. 8-10 ft with scattered weeds is working well. Small fathead minnows fished on a slip bobber rig are producing most of the action. Look for the fish by Knollwood or by Belvidere Park.
Walleye fishing has been awesome casting or trolling stick baits in the shallows. Best locations Maytag Point and Buttons Bay.
