Northern Pike fishing has been very good. Like the largemouth bass, they are off the weed edge in 17-19 ft of water. You can either catch them on a live bait rig with a sucker or chub or by casting large swim baits off the weed line. The best location has been on the west […]
Largemouth bass are being caught in 20-30 ft of water on the main weed lines. Most of the fish are being caught by either Carolina rigging lizards, or dragging jigs on the hard bottom areas of the weed flats. The best location is either Trinkes or the weed line in Williams Bay. There can be […]
Bluegills remain in the deep waters, roughly 18-20 ft of water. The fish are associating off the weed lines in the main lake basin. The best location has been by Elgin Club or by Gage Marine. The best approach is fishing leaf worms with a small split shot straight beneath the boat.
Walleye fishing remains the best bite on the lake. The fish are by Knollwood, Trinkes and by the buoy line in Fontana. You need to look for them between the hours of midnight and 4 a.m. it is doubtful that you’ll find them any other time. A good chop on the lake will also help […]
Northern pike fishing has also been slow. I’ve been dragging medium suckers in 22-25 ft of water with very limited success. I’m fishing the suckers on lindy rigs about 1 foot off bottom. The northern pike bite will improve with a weather change as well.
Bluegill fishing has been very good though. The bluegills are in 18-22 ft of water. The best location has been by Elgin Club or by Gage Marine. You want to fish leaf worms about a foot off bottom. A vertical presentation has been the best so keeping your boat anchored is working well.
Largemouth bass are in 15-17 ft of water. You want to fish just west of Browns Channel or just west of Willow Point or the Yacht Club. They can be caught on drop shot rigged 4 inch finesse worms or nightcrawlers fished on a split shot rig. In early morning hours, the top water bite […]
Lake Trout fishing has been very good in the main lake basin in 108-120 ft of water at first light. I prefer fishing early in the morning as the trout are suspended and easier to catch than when they are tight to the bottom. Use down riggers with chrome/blue or chrome/green spoons for the most […]
