Got out last night with trolling king-he put a whoopin on me.After about the 15 fish i switched up to his crank and we smashed them for hours.Out at 10 in by 1:30 we caught a bass on the first cast right at 5lbs and tons of 2-3 lb largies.Got maybe 6 smallies and around 9-10 walleye-all eyes small around 16-17 inches nothing kept ever.They hit anything we threw as long as it had chartreuse on it.Smith wick rouge the ticket tonight-Woody sorry to hear about your shoulder you can come hang out on my boat while you recover we have been out many times your a great fisherman,its gotta suck knowing your going to be without a casting arm for a while.You should be able to still jig the river in nov no problem just tell your doc its good rehab no casting lol.Ok all fish 8-18 ft deep no floaters tonight like last week-massive amount of minnow schools everywhere fontanna south side near all the tied up boats was our spot-did see about a 35 inch gar last night have only seen 1 in the last 20 yrs everything was out including dodging deer on the way home.

Had a regular last night from 10pm till 4am and on our last outing he put a whupping and let me know about it so tonight was fun. We started in 26 to 32 feet he went with the drop shot me texas rig and he started with a little walleye then rock bass we moved and set up in 12feet casting in and the little largemouth were biting and I took the lead in numbers and size we both wanted smallmouth out we went back to 24 to 33 feet and moved around but in the end we found them or should I say I caught them and the game was over with me handing out a beating. As we were pulling out larry smith was putting in can not wait to see that one larry was a great guy to talk too.

Sorry about late report fished Thursday from 10pm to 3am as the front was moving in the winds were hard from the west and we played it safe in Williams bay and fished the texas rig and drop shot in 6 to 26ft and the 8 to 10 ft was the best and largemouth were the bite. Was back out on Friday solo from 10am to 3pm and I fished under 10ft with drop shot and senko and both were on with 30 plus largemouth all in the 2 to 3lb range. Was Back with two guys on sat. from 8am till 2pm we stayed in 12ft and less worked the drop shot and caught lots of little largemouth, rock bass and a sunfish we only had 3 bass over 3lbs but lost a few good ones. Was back sunday morn from 6am till 2:30pm we fished in the anglers choice tournament with 45 boats and started in 24 to 27 ft with drop shot and c-rig with nothing we move into 10ft and casted a topwater and dropshot nothing moved same depth with a blowup and miss then a 2lb largemouth so we head out to 26 to 32 with the c-rig and ricky lights them up with 4 smallmouth all 3lbers I get 1 and miss one. We move stick with deep water nothing move nothing move shallow and catch a couple little largemouth no help move back to where we caught them rick gets 2 more on c-rig both 3lb plus move to 16 to 24 and rick gets 4 largemouth with one being 3lbs we end day with 5 at 16.22lbs and 4th place I thing we were the only team with more then two smallmouth weighed in. Winning weight was 19plus then 18plus then 17lbs then us. I am glad I have a great partner as he carried the weight today.

Fishing on Lake Geneva remains very consistent. Even with the cold front that came through this past week, the fishing was only minimally affected. The summer patterns are in full swing. The biggest fish are deep, greater than 20 ft. for most species.

 I’ve been catching some very nice largemouth bass in 21-22 ft of water by Stone Manor and Linn Pier. The bigger fish are coming off a drop shot rig in green pumpkin or root beer with red flake color. The dropper length I prefer is 1 foot beneath the hook.

 Bluegill fishing has been fantastic by Elgin Club and by Gage Marine. Like the largemouth bass, the best depth is 21-22 ft of water. They can be readily seen on your Humminbird graph. The best approach is a simple split shot rig fished straight beneath the boat with a tight line. Use trout worms or leaf worms for the best action.

 Lake Trout fishing remains a hot bite on the lake. The fish are in the main lake basin between Conference Point, Cedar Point and Black Point. I like to fish a circle around these points. The early morning hours seem to produce the most fish. The fish are located 69-70 ft down in 108-110 ft of water. Silver spoons fished behind a small dodger have been working as has the dodger and fly combination that you would use on Lake Michigan.

 Smallmouth bass fishing continues to be challenging. The best action has been by the Yacht Club or by Elgin Club. The fish have been very spread out and hard to pattern which is typical for this time of year. They are busy chasing the pods of bait fish so you need to find those first. Try for them using a small grub or white hair jig. The depth I’ve been finding them is about 15 ft down in 25 ft of water.

 Walleye fishing remains excellent at night. Large Rapalas trolled 170 ft back from the planer boards has been producing good action. The best location has been in Trinkes Bay or by Abbey Springs.

 Good luck and I hope to see you on the water. For guide parties, please call Dave Duwe at 262-728-8063

Fished with Kevin, and Cody last night. Cody boated the first bass, then I hooked up with a crankbait. Very hard to fish, as I took a bad fall last week, tearing a chronic rotator cuff, surgery is thursday, so I probably will not be fishing for awhile. We decided to troll awhile, Kevin and I both caught a small eye. Back to casting, and a few more bass, and Kev lost a nice eye boatside. We had a total of 12-13 bass biggest was only about 2.5lbs 2 eyes, 1 small pike. Finished up around 12:30. Good luck, good fishing, Woody!
