As the summer winds down, the boat traffic will fall off tremendously making it a great time to fish Lake Geneva. The best bite on the lake continues to be Walleyes at night or the deep water bluegills are also active.
Bluegills remain in the deep waters, roughly 18-20 ft of water. The fish are associating off the weed lines in the main lake basin. The best location has been by Elgin Club or by Gage Marine. The best approach is fishing leaf worms with a small split shot straight beneath the boat.
Rock bass fishing is also very good. Use split shot rigged nightcrawlers in 14-16 ft of water. The best locations are by Abbey Springs, Covenant Harbor, and by the South Shore Club.
Largemouth bass fishing is good. The bass are concentrating on hard bottom locations in deep water with scattered weeds. The best location has been by Trinkes or off the main lake points. The best depth has been 20-24 ft of water. They can be caught drop shotting 4 inch finesse worms or Carolina rigging green pumpkin lizards in the 6 inch size.
Northern pike action remains consistent. They can be caught every time out however, the numbers have been on the low side. Look for the fish in Fontana Boat Channel or just west of Cedar Point. Works a depth of 35 ft of water. Use medium lindy rigged suckers for the best success.
Walleye fishing remains good at night. The best option is trolling for them. Look for the fish in Williams Bay weed line or by Abbey Springs. Medium diving stick baits have been working well. The best depth has been 15-17 ft of water.
Good luck and I hope to see you on the water. For guide parties, please call Dave Duwe at 262-728-8063
