Trolled Geneva Friday night for the harvest moon and pretty slow for us.  1 walleye at 25'', a few bass, and few incidental pike and rock bass.  Was too tired to go back out Saturday night. Fished from about 10-3am. Floating weeds we a bit of a pain but still manageable.

Fished with Kevin, and Ben last night. Did some casting on the north shore, where Ben picked up a nice bass on a crankbait. Kevin boated a few bass, and I switched to an old school wiggle wart, and finally picked up a few myself. Wenter to the troll, but we only picked up a few, including a nice 3lbers by Kevin. Decided to finish the night cas ting cranks and spinnerbaits, and picked up a few more bass. No giants, but another great night on the pond. Finished up with 25 lm bass, and 2 smallies. Good luck, good fishinf, Woody!

Fished fri with Mike From 7:30am till 11:30am. I was early so I ran to a spot and stopped in 22ft on first cast with the drop shot I landed a fat 19 inch smallmouth picked up c- rig and in 3 casts landed a 16 inch largemouth time to pick up mike back to spot we catch 5 largemouth then the wind starts and we move. We stayed with the drop shot and found largemouth but nothing over 3.8lb and the smallies eluded us. I did talk to guys that started at 1am and did very well with a 5.8 lb largemouth they did say they stayed shallow thanks guys for the info and way to go they also had 8 walleyes all under 15 inch. I fished with Rick sat morn from 6:30am till 10:30am we started deep 40ft casting up with the c-rig. The bite was fast with 5 caught 4 missed then we started moving and going shallow to find a few largemouths but nothing big. Still struggling with camera I'll get there

Fished with Kevin last night, starting around 7. We were casting by the acadamy, picking up a few bass, moved to conference point, and picked up a few more bass. Decided to start trolling, but only boated a couple more bass, including a 2.6lb smallie, which was the best one of the night. Had a muskie leap out of the water, after a rockbass I was bringing in. Our final stop, produced a few more bass, and again I missed a reel screecher, only on for a few moments, but knew it was a toad! Finished up around 1:30, with 21 bass. Great night to be out, under an almost full moon. Good luck, good fishing, Woody!

late report.  On wednesday at 6 a.m.  only one other trailer in parking lot at linn peir.   Water was calm.  Wind from east north east very light.  Went to north shore water was very calm.  Top water action was on fire.  When sun came out after rain, the top water was done.  Water pretty clear but a bit shaken up from the rain earlier.  Buzz baits are so fun to catch fish on when they are shallow.  Went to flats for panfish.  Nonstop action.  Only took 12 home.  All came from 25fow.  Off the water at 10.  Wife had things to do for the day.  All in all great day.  8 bass 1 bigger at just short of 20"  7 14-16 inches.   over 100 pans. hard to get the bait down on just half nightcrawler.  Wife wasnt to into fishing but makes a good rope holder when putting the boat in and out.  With  2 people actively fishing it could have been a crazy day.  Only going to get better with temps dropping soon.  Tight Lines all

Fished with Bob on Monday from 5pm till 7:30pm fished the drop shot started deep 35 feet casting in the first spot was a dud so we moved and pulled up to 20 feet casting in, 5 largemouth later and bob wanted to move out and chase smallmouth we did but only ended up with 2 with both being in the 3lb class. Fished with Glen and Greg from 7am till 3:30pm we were fishing a lake Geneva fishing club event. We started deep 40 casting in with our trusty drop shots and with the first fish being a largemouth and a good one at 17.75 inches. I was hoping the largemouth had joined the smallmouth deep but that was not to be we moved often and stayed deep but after 4 spots and two smallmouths we made the move shallow with 16 feet casting in being the best as the bass were in the 16 to 12 foot range with largemouth the best bite. We ended up with 26 bass 1 walleye (13 incher ) and plenty of rock bass and pumpkin seeds. Thank you guys for a great day and thank all the guys and gal for a great evening at the meeting afterwords i hope i was able to help you understand how i do what i do. I fished with Jim on wed from 11am till 3pm he wanted trout and so off we go. We found them and were able to each get a few to chase out baits but none wanted to hit but it was fun seeing the lure on the depthfinder and watching the trout race up hold then drop and i will say we fished everything in the boat today.

Fished friday night with Kevin, very slow, we struggled to put 14 lm bass in the boat, both trolling, and casting, with a 2.7 lb. lm caught casting, for big bass for the night.                                           Moving on to last night we changes gears, and started over off conference point. Kev caught a bullhead, as we moved over by gages marine, we picked up a few more bass, including a nice 2 lber, by Kevin. Went to the south shore, to troll, and that seemed to be the ticket, as we started picking up some nice 3lbers, mostly smallies, and only a couple lm. Made several passes, and caught nice fish on each pass. Had a reel heartbreaker, when something big slammed my bait, and totally smoked the drag, about 30 feet worth. I cannot recall having a fish do that in a very long time. Oh well, we put 20 bass in the boat, and called it a night around 3:30 am . Good luck, good fishing, Woody!

Geneva Kid, funny you say about the Pike action , as we also have run into a strange amount with Chatterbaits early. Dont usually use Spinnerbaits once the Sun arises , but my buddy got a great 4 pounder today on a spinner.

Great Thursday morning. Arrived just before daybreak and caught a 27" Walleye on the first cast. Boated 9 LM Bass but nothing of any size. Northern action was suprisingly hot for a while in the same area I caught the LM Bass boating 4  of them but had a few others on with the biggest 30"

Walleye hit a stick bait and the others a 3/4 ounce Spinner Bait. Cranks were dead yesterday morning.
