Lake Geneva, 5/25/20 – 6/1/20

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 […]

Largemouth bass are starting to make nests and begin spawning.  Sight fishermen are having the best success.  Look for them in 2-3 ft. of water, associating with hard sand.  The tricky part is trying to present a bait without getting the green slime on it.  I prefer fishing a Texas rigged tube bait, either chartreuse/pepper […]

Bluegills have been a guaranteed bite for the last week.  Some of them were in excess of 10 inches.  You had to weed through lots of small ones to catch a good dinner.  The best depth was in the shallow weeds in 3-4 ft. of water.  I caught all of my fish on an ice […]

Walleye fishing has been good at night.  Some nice fish were being caught on slip bobbers in 8-9 ft. of water.  The best bait for this week are large fat head minnows.  Casting crankbaits has also been producing a lot of fish.Check locations such as Willow Point, the Yacht Club point and Browns Channel.
