Dave Duwe Fishing Guide

Lake Geneva Fishing Report 7/23/18- 7/29/18

The bite on Geneva continues to be a bit slow. The best bite on the lake is still walleyes fished at night.

Largemouth bass can be caught by Maytag Point or Covenant Harbor Point. The best depth is 16-18 ft of water. The best approach is drop shotting 4 inch Chompers with a one foot dropper. I fish my dropper on 8 lb monofilament fished on a medium light spinning rod.

Northern pike fishing has been good in the 30 ft depth range. The best locations are the channel in Fontana or just west of Cedar Point. The best approach is lindy rigged medium suckers or chubs if you can find them.

Bluegill fishing has been good. The bluegills are in 18-20 ft of water. Look for the fish by Gage Marina or by Elgin Club. The best bait is trout worms fished on a split shot rig. You want to position the split shot about 1 foot from the hook and try to keep the worm 6 inches above bottom. The schools are pretty big so a good graph is essential.

Rock bass fishing has been slower than in years past. I’m not sure if the depth is different or if there are just less of them than previously available. The best approach is a split shot rigged nightcrawler. Look for the fish in 12-15 ft of water by South Shore Club or by Knollwood.

Walleyes are biting during the nighttime hours. Troll medium diving crankbaits by Trinkes or Knollwood for the most action. Work a depth of 15 ft of water and have the baits run 10-12 ft down.

Good luck and I hope to see you on the water. For guide parties, please call Dave Duwe at 262-728-8063
