Fall has officially arrived on both the calendar and the temps. After about 10 days of high temps and high pressure, we’ve seen a significant drop and for the past few days high temps have struggled to get into the lower 70’s. Largemouth bass are biting again with the weather change.
Bluegill fishing remains excellent in the 18-20 ft depth range. The best location has been by Elgin Club or the Lake Geneva Yacht Club. You want to fish leaf worms, 6 inches to 1 foot off bottom. The schools are very large and are visible on your graphs and fish finders. I like to use […]
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 […]
Northern Pike are being caught in the shallow weed flats in 12-13 ft of water on White spinner baits or Chatter baits. The pike prefer a fast moving bait. The deep water sucker bite has been difficult all summer.
Bluegill action has been good in the 16-18 ft depth range by Gage Marine, the Yacht Club and by Elgin Club. You want to fish straight beneath the boat about 1 foot off bottom with a small leaf worm. The fish are in large schools and are quite visible on your fish locator.
Northern Pike fishing has been okay in the shallow weed flats. The most action is coming out of 12-13 ft of water casting white spinner baits or medium diving fire tiger crank baits. Look for the fish on the west end, in Viewcrest or the Highlands. The sucker bite for me has been non-existent.
Bluegills have not moved into the deep water all summer. The bigger fish remain in the 13-15 ft depth range. The best location has been off the main lake points and off the buoy line on the west end, the Highland side seems to be the best. Using a small split shot and a leaf […]
Northern pike fishing has been good in 33-36 ft of water. The fish are by Black Point, Fontana Boat Channel or in the narrows on the north shore. You want to lindy rig chubs or suckers with a 24 inch leader right on bottom. I use monofilament leaders to insure more bites, a steel leader […]
