Northern pike are on the weed lines. They are starting to move into the deeper water. By the end of this week they should be easily caught by lindy rigs.
Crappies are prevalent all over the lake. Pretty much every spot I’ve tried I’ve found fish. The only problem is that most of the fish I’ve been catching are in the 6-7 inch range so you need to do a lot of sorting to catch a good meal.
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 […]
Yellow Perch fishing has been fantastic on the west end by the Viewcrest Bay. You want to anchor the boat in 20-22 ft of water. They are biting on slip bobbers with hellgrammites. Hellgrammites are outfishing any other bait about 5 to 1.
Bluegill fishing has been good in Geneva Bay. The bluegills are in 6-8 ft of water in and around the boat docks. You want to fish with leaf worms or small red worms underneath Thill slip bobbers. The key has been scattered weeds. The thick matted weeds haven’t been producing as many fish so you […]
Northern Pike fishing has been very good average. The fish been biting very well in 17-21 feet of water.as well as recent years. The best bite has been lindy rigged suckers. The size of the suckers don’t seem to matter large or medium are catching fish. The best location has been just west of the […]

Look for the fish west of Willow Point, west of the Yacht Club or by the Village Supper Club. The best approach is either a split shot rigged nightcrawlers or […]
Yellow perch are also in the shallows. They can be caught by Belvidere Park in 8-10 ft of water. The best approach is small fat head minnows fished on a Thill slip bobber. The only problem has been that the average size is about 5 inches. You will need to do a lot of sorting […]
