I think that is a City of Lake Geneva policy, and not enforceable in the other towns around the lake, such as Williams Bay where that tourney is being held?

Nothing against tournaments, but this is a great common sense policy. Hope people follow the law.

You are correct. Legally can't have an organized tournament on Lake Geneva from opening weekend until June 26

I thought an ordinance was passed by the town of Geneva that there could be no tournaments in the month of May.

As far as John and Billy they are good friends and both very good fisherman. I been in John's boat more then a few time's and never had a bad time and next to Billy's more then once with being greeted always with a smile. The lake is big enough for the two of them. Lets not forget Doug Becker he is also a guide and a beast on catching big bass. I am pretty sure they all talk and help out each other. I hope they all have great seasons as I like them all. But them other guild's will be in trouble with the years these guys have together. JMO

Yes the pier fishing will be getting better with each day. There are public piers in the towns around the lake. As the gamefish is not opening till may 7th the rock bass and perch will give you plenty of action. Hope that helps.

Fishing the last couple of days has been tough on the crappies as the rockbass and blugill seem to be hitting in the area I am crappie fishing. Well the wax worm is still getting more bites but the minnow will get more of the crappie. For the pier anglers the perch have moved in as well as the rock bass so it should be go time. I would like to thank the lake link staff for the birthday massage. I am headed to Kentucky till may 8th. I will be home and ready to catch some big bass opening week. Be safe and take up the slack. The wife will be here to take calls and bookings while I am gone. The guys jigging the depths are fishing lake trout.

Fished late Sunday afternoon. Similar results as Friday afternoon. Caught 4 crappie and I added a nice perch and rambo to the mix. Water temp on the North shore was 50 degrees. Stayed in 6-10' of water and found sporadic crappies on the weed lines. 1/32 jig and crappie minnow set 4' down. Keep your bobber as neutrally buoyant as possible and you will catch more fish. All fish caught yesterday were in the 9-10" range. Tight lines

Fishing the last of couple of days has been tough and while we are catching fish the bite does not last long and we are only getting a few of the bigger crappie and a handful of bigger sunfish an bluegills. we stopped at the walleyes for tomorrow trailer and was told that they are had 6 million plus eggs in process and they pulled the nets. Thank you to all that helped to make this work. I did a walk on Thursday and did see plenty of smaller gills and bass around some docks I did not see any crappie or perch yet with the water temp around 47 the sun and warm weather will start pulling them in Thank you to all who have fished with me over the last month it been a blast.

Quick question. Last Saturday I saw a number of boughs verically jigging in 80-110 foot of water. Would they have been targeting lakers or some other species that was suspended?

Fished from 4-6 yesterday afternoon. Targeted Crappie. Had to hunt and peck but managed 6 nice fish off of two weed lines on the north shore in 8-10'. Plastics and a small minnow did the trick. One fish was a 14" beauty. Tight lines.

On the water at 6am till 11am fished with Dan and while we had to work for or fish we had a very good morning. The minnow bite was good and the key to today was catch a couple move a little and catch a couple more we did find two spots where we found more then a couple but you had two leave and come back and you would get a couple more. As I do not eat fish as much as I should and my freezer never holds fish I can say I release 99 percent. (I like winter gills) And well my clients do keep fish most are not even keeping close to there limit with each keeping some large while most are medium sized, I do believe a lake can get stunted but I can insure you that Geneva will never have that issue as her size and forage base will not allow it. I have fished the lake for over forty years with the last 25 years 4 to 6 days a week. This has allowed me to see things most never see and I think about all aspects oh the lake and the fish in it. Dan ended up with 17 crappie his big was 15 inches. Thank you Dan look forward to next time

Did I miss something? I didn't get a chance to ice fish Geneva this winter, but is it stunted now? The big gills and crappies and not to mention the occasional 10# walleye has dried up? Its not a great fishery? Or is MATT just a little sore? Well I plan on heading out there when I get a free day. I hope my spots are still producing...
