Fishing continues to be very good. The best action on the lake has been largemouth bass, smallmouth bass and rock bass. Largemouth bass have been positioned in the shallow weed flats while the smallmouth bass have been on the break line. Largemouth bass fishing has been excellent. The best location has been by the Military Academy, Trinkes and in Williams Bay.
The depth varies from day to day. I usually start in 8 ft and go as deep as 14 ft of water. Once you find the active fish, they’ve been pretty easy to catch. Pre-rigged worms in purple and black have been producing a lot of fish. You want to use a very slow methodical retrieve. Smallmouth bass have been off the break lines in 14-16 ft of water. They can be caught on white hair jigs or on lindy rigged nightcrawlers. The best location has been by the Yacht Club and by the
Military academy. Some of the days last week, when the wind was blowing, they were stacked up and you could catch a bunch.
Rock bass have been positioned in areas with hard sand bottoms with scattered weeds. The best location has been by Colemans Point and by Elgin Club. Nightcrawlers fished on a split shot rig have been producing a lot of fish. The best depth has been 10-12 ft. Bluegill fishing has been excellent in Geneva Bay. The best depth is 7-8 ft of water. 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. As the water warms, they will be heading into
deeper water. Once they go deep, they become very nomadic and difficult to pattern, but if you get on a school you will catch a bunch.
Walleye fishing has been good. They’ve been biting at night in 14-15 ft of water. The best bait has been large perch colored stick baits that dive 8-10 ft. The best location has been by Trinkes or Abbey Springs.
Good luck and I hope to see you on the water. For guide parties, please call Dave Duwe
