The most active specie has been the bluegill.  Rock bass fishing is becoming a bit more limited.  Look for the fish by the Elgin Club or in Geneva Bay, outside the buoys.

There are some walleyes being caught at night trolling large crankbaits.  Most of the success is coming off of large Rapalas or deep diving Walleye Bandits.  Chrome/Blue or Chrome/black are the best choices.  Try for the fish in Williams Bay or Trinkes Bay.

Rock Bass and Bluegills are literally everywhere throughout the lake.  The best depth of water has been 8-15 ft. of water.  Nightcrawlers are producing most of the fish.  It isn’t hard to go through 10-12 dozen nightcrawlers in a 4-hour guide party.  I caught most of the larger rock bass west of Linn Pier.

Smallmouth bass have been sporadic.  With the spawn completed, they are chasing their dinner.  If you find a school of bait fish, you will find the smallmouth bass right behind them.  I’ve been either drop shotting 4 inch green pumpkin worms or slowly reeling in a jig and a grub tail.  The best depth has […]
