Perch and Bluegills are starting to bite in the shallows. The bluegills and perch are both in about 5-6 ft. of water. The best bait has been leaf worms or small nightcrawlers. I fish almost exclusively a small hook and bobber combination. Advertisements

Perch fishing has been improving. The fish are starting to move into the 12-14 ft. range. The fish can be taken on slip bobbers or by drifting nightcrawlers. The best location has been by Coleman’s point or by Rainbow point.
The bluegills are starting to show up in pretty good numbers in the shallow bays. The best location was Geneva Bay, fishing in 5-6 ft. of water around the moored boats and by the Riviera Pier. You have to sort through quite a few small ones but could catch a nice meal if you are […]

Some small Bluegills can be caught around the boat dock in Geneva Bay. The best bait is leaf worms fished on a slip bobber. Within the next few weeks, the bluegills will be in very thick as they begin to spawn.
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 […]
