he best Walleye bite has been at night. Most of the fish are coming out of 5 ft of water near the main lake points. Such as, the Yacht Club, Willow Point and the Village Supper Club.
Some of the best reports for large fish were trolling stick baits, like Walleye Bandits and Rapala Husky Jerks in 6-8 ft of water. The best time is at night from about 3-5 a.m. Check locations such as Willow Point, the Yacht Club point and Browns Channel.
Bluegills are biting in the 12-13 ft depth range. The best location is by Browns Channel or in front of Township Park.
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.

When this happens, the technique will change from trolling to slip-bobbers and jig fishing. When this happens, it becomes an […]
Walleye fishing has been very slow for me. Last week, I tried trolling and lindy rigging leeches without success. We did have a bug hatch last week that typically turns them off. I haven’t had much opportunity to try again, but will check it out in the coming week. As fall approaches, the walleye fishing […]
Walleye fishing has been above average for this time of year. Most of the fish are being caught trolling. You want to fish a crankbait in 15-20 ft of water right off the weedline. I’ve been using Bandit 300 series or deep diving Fat free shad bombers. The deal has been first light or a […]
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 […]
