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.
Good action can be found in and around the piers in 5-6 ft of water. Fish them with a slip bobber and a leaf worm. Perch are in 10 ft of water. They are location is some of their standard areas such as Rainbow Point and Belvidere Park.
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.
Some Lake Trout are being caught in 70-90 ft of water. Most of the success has come off of a silver Dodger and a blue Fly or a chrome and blue flutter spoon. Look for the fish by Covenant Harbor or by the […]

On the football head jigs, the best color is rootbeer on a ¼ oz jig head. The smaller jig head will prevent a lot of the weeds from snagging your bait. Look […]
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.
Bluegills are starting to show up in the shallows. The best locations have been the shallow weeds in Geneva Bay and Trinkies. Bobbers with small leaf worms seem to be producing most of the action. The best depth is 5-6 ft. of water. For shore fishermen, there has been good success off the piers in […]
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 […]
