Fished with Jim on Friday eve from 6:30pm till 8:30pm We started shallow 8 to 15ft with Jim going drop shot and me throwing a texas rig and while the bite was slow Jim was changing baits non stop and I gave up on the texas rig for a jig then after Jim found a bait that the largemouth wanted I went to the drop shot and begged for the worm (as he called it ) with Jim having a 5 bass lead he gave me a used one (better then nothing) and sure enough I was able to boat a couple but he ended with big and overall he sure is getting the hang of the drop shot. Now I throw the curve ball as the c-rig will start outfishing the drop shot as the water temps drop. Fished Saturday night with the two Bills, Ari and mama we started at 8pm till 1:30am the first time we fished it was a live bait thing this time they wanted size so it was plastics on the drop shot. We started shallow 16ft casting up and the younger Bill started it of with the first largemouth then the second and third with pa and Ari catching a couple of rock bass. The bass were hitting light and were scattered but as the night went on we slid out and Ari caught the first smallmouth but young Bill caught the biggest smallmouth and largemouth with Ari landing the most and pa getting his butt kicked on this night. Thank you for the return trip I just wish the bite would have been alittle better but I could see how much they learned from the last trip.

Fished with Warren on Tuesday night from 10pm till 4am and while we started in new water and fished deep 35ft casting up we could not find a bite and as the spots went on and we were now in 12ft casting in. We had went thru the drop shot, texas rig, spinner bait, crankbait and topwater with no hint on what to do back to the drop shot and back to 16ft casting in with the boat getting deeper the bites started with rock bass. Our first smallmouth came at 1am in 26ft. At least now we have something Warren gets his first of the night a 4.12lb short fat beast and follows it up with  a 4.02lb and I get into the game with a 3.15lb. These were the ones we weighed the rest were a look and release. The bite was going good when we came in but we were both wore out. It tears me up the pics I took did not come out camera set up wrong. Took Mike out Thursday from 7am till 2pm we started shallow 12ft. and were throwing topwater and jigworm after a few blowups and rock bass we moved deeper 20ft and found more rock bass, pumpkinseeds and little perch switch to drop shot nothing how about c-rig bingo 3lb plus smallmouth then nothing make move 25ft. casting up get 2nd smallmouth not as big but still fun. End up with drop shot and largemouth but oh well still a blast thanks Mike.

I hate say there is realy no way to stop the floating weeds from attaching to your boards i usualy run the shore wind is coming from for less weeds i do understand it becomes frustrating runnin 120 ft behind your board and it getting slopped up but your board should get most of the weeds before they get to your lure. Youcan put a swivel high above your lure should catch alot of them before they reach your lure.your still a couple weeks early for great sucsess on boards at night for eyes. good luck

Beautiful day on Geneva and plenty of action.  The rock bass were all over.  Got some nice pumpkinseeds and gills, many perch, a couple small LMB and two smallies.  We used big and small minnows, nightcrawlers and some waxies, threw some Gulp worms, drop shots and other buffet items.  Best action was in 18 - 25 fow.  Tight lines !

Met up with Jim on Monday at 10pm we fished till 2:30am at the start the clouds were thick with a light breeze we started in 42ft casting the drop shots into 20ish and the rock bass were relentless but the smallmouth were not to be out done as we caught them spread out along the brakeline. By midnight the clouds were giving way and we each had caught 10 or more bass with 9 that we weighed over 3lbs. With the moon in full view we could see something swimming so we go take a look and it is a skunk swimming across lake ( a first for me to see ) after trying to get a pic we go back to fishing and for the rest of the night we do not get a bite. I just don't know.As far as the walleye guides there are a few to look into I will start trolling eyes at the end of the month till ice up.
