FISHING REPORT

Water Temp: 56° - 60° F
Fished last night 8:00pm - 12:00pm. Was out with my 11 yr old son so we casted spinners and got bit off once....that was it he went to bed in the bow.

Then I trolled thundersticks and flickershads and not even a bite. Stayed shallow 10-13'.

Then drove around the breaks to look for bait fish and I could not find much. Bait fish were scattered.

Still allot of green healthy weeds down to 20'.

I figured it was not going to be to good with the high pressure, no wind and 58 deg water temps.......but when that's the only time you can go you give it a shot. =======

I see allot of questions below about fall bass and the "best is coming when they put the feedbag on etc.....". That's not my experience.

I have fished Geneva in the fall for 10+ years now. When the water temps fall below 60 deg the LM bass get sluggish and the artificial bite gets tough. I see Prov is going to rivers so what does that tell you. The Smallies start to school up big time and feed as wolf packs. So your best bet is Roaches, Shiners and Suckers during the day. You can still get em on artificials but you are going to work harder. If you know the Smallmouth areas just stay put......they will come and go to that area. I have had doubles when hanging meat on smallies.

Just my opinion for what its worth.

Tight Lines!!!!!

I like to see fishing reports. If I'm gonna drive a couple hundred miles to fish an area I'm not familiar with reports and pics are great. Fishing tips are even better. I like to help out my fellow fishermen. That's why I visit this website weekly. Im a catch and release guy. Just want the experience. Gonna drop some money to have a good time and hearing good fishing reports and seeing awesome pics like the ones lately make me even more excited about making my trip to new waters.

My apologies Daruoho. I was under the mistaken impression that the actual purpose of this board was to post reports. I also didn't know that it was frowned upon by the true experts to post a report if one used a guide.

Had a great day today with Doug Becker and we didn't need to fish live bait. Caught a good mix of SM and LM with a number of pigs like this. Water temp was 58-59 everywhere.

My first year fishing on Geneva. Fished Sunday and could only catch very small perch. Could anyone offer help on catching keeper perch in Geneva or are they just all small?

Fished yesterday (11/12) 11-4. First really bad day all year. Zero fish. Tried finesse plastics, cranks. Work 8-12', then 15-25'. Nada. Tried weed edges, rocky drops, points etc. Probably need to go to live bait which I don't like but hey it's that time of year. Tight lines

basscat: with the water temp in the 50's the smallies want meat. large fatheads or suckers fished in 25-35 fow. i dont like fishing with live bait but the reality is it outperforms artificials big time this time of year.

Was out Sat 7-12. water temp 53-55. had to work for them. next couple of weeks should be strong.
