Tunaboy, Linn Pier is going to be your best bet. There is a store up the road about a half mile that sells bait and beer. Get there very early or the lot will be filled. 10.00 to launch.

If your looking for a bargain place to launch forget it! Money has made Geneva pay to play! Expect $12 and up to launch your boat!

Are there any launches which cater to the fishermen. The launches I see look like grand central station with boats moored that cost more than my house. Any small private launches adjacent to a bar or sporting goods shop. Any idea of launch fees.

Those are great smallmouth. Wish you could have better described your Meat on a Stick technique. Sounds like you located them on your gonkulator. Great pics.

Got out Sat fishing for small mouth with no luck. Put a call into the fishing Guru John from the Pier. Booked a trip and killed them using plastics Pier Minnows in Geneva Bay the flats and military academy in',of water. Weather was tough but John had us on fish all day again.

Once the fishing god blessed us the bite was on, John said to keep moving on use the wind to your advantage. Another great trip from John at the Pier

Fished with John from the Pier and he put me on fish immediately. Caught large football Smallmouth using a technique he called The Help with meat on a stick. It was awesome. Fished the narrows on north side in 17-24' of water and William Bay. Caught fish all day. We also used football jib and craw trailer and the Pier minnows drifting.

Bought all stuff we used at the Pier afterwards for my boat.

I would highly recommend booking John while the bite is hot. Caught biggest fish ever I ever caught on Geneva. Best guide on the Lake. Can`t wait until next trip

Fished today with Doug Becker. We had to really work for them and make a lot of moves but we did really well. 56 in Geneva Bay but 52/53 still in the rest of the lake. Seeing a few early beds but that's it.

Was a slow day due to the front that came in. Wind, rain and chilly temps made it challenging. We did manage a few Bass and one northern. Fish were deeper than usual with slow presentation working. Hits were very almost undetectable, just a weight and fish on. Only one other rig in lot when we left! Perhaps Thursday! Tite Lines!

Fished from 11pm Saturday night until 5 am this morning. Fished cranks, rippin raps, jigs w/crawler & leech. Picked up one rockie all night. Water clarity and no wind made fishing tough in my opinion. We seen a few big female eyes in 5 FOW or less up on sand/gravel with about twice as many smaller males mixed in. Can't even count how many bass we seen up shallow. Approx 200? Did snag into a 20 plus lb carp. Although we didn't catch anything we had a great night and was really cool to see the numbers of fish we seen up shallow.

Started at 6 am with Jeff P; we started fishing bass, got a couple nice large mouth and a short smallie. Large mouth were full of eggs so switched to pan-fish about 8 am; massive pumpkins seeds with the occasional rockie. Ended up being a great morning all the seeds were in 4 foot of water or less .
