Fishing today was good, bass were on the break line with drop shot being the choice of baits. A little Musky action as well today and some nice gills up to 10".

It was great to see you again TOM BILLINGS, thanks for the tips on the Bass fishing! I'll be in touch!

Fishing continues to remain excellent working outside wedges adjacent to deep water. Using finesse plastics and live bait. We managed to catch 25 bass between 14 and 22 inches.

Went out with John Trossen from the "The Pier". Had a great time and he put us on the spots to catch the fish smallies and large. It was a hard day to fish with the weather. But we still caught them. If anyone is looking for someone with years on this lake and knows it like the back of their hand. I would recommend John 100%. Thanks for the great time and all your hard work. Tom Big Smile

Was contemplating coming down during this week or the next to try trolling the trout. Have a good amount of trolling tackle just curious what works best out here? Flasher flies? Spoons? Possible shallow divong cranks off of downriggers? Any input welcome. Pm if you want. THANKS!

This is not a fishing report but just an observation. I've been fishing Lake Geneva for a few yrs now and for some reason this yr it seems like all etiquette from both boaters and fellow fishermen is lacking. I've seen near fist fights at the launch ( linn ), boats pulling up to launch when I'm clearly pulling out, a complete traffic mess with lining up boats for launch. If the guy is out next, the entire operation stops if he can't get his trailer to the ramp to extract his boat. Also some of the fishermen have little to zero patience either launching or pulling out. A little courtesy and a little patience makes everything run smoother. Well I'm done with my venting, good luck, boat safe.

Thanks you Markobd. I appreciate the thought and yes I'm sure there are a few lol. Good luck hooking them though!

FYI JohnT is a good guy. I've gone out with John and fished at night 3Xs over the years. Once we hooked two in the lower 20" class and the other two times we blanked. John also set up my Ranger with rod holders and recommended my Yami T8 kicker. I spoke with him a couple weeks back, same program with the 18's. I have fished Geneva and have duplicated what I've learned many times on other good walleye lakes and have positive results with continued poor results on Geneva. Don't misunderstand Mark I'm hooking fish, just not what I'm after.

Btw I know they keep stocking the heck out of it but if the fingerlings don't survive or the mature eyes cannot reproduce its not as good of a walleye fishery as say Muskegon, Bay de Noc, Sturgeon Bay etc. The fact is it may never ever be in the same class as the above mentioned walleye waters. It is what it is...

Best walleye tip I ever received on Geneva... Go fish Delevan Big Smile Hahahha

When I read that WDNR article it all made sense. Google it when you have nothing going on... Natural Reproduction of Walleyes on Geneva Worried

Thanks for the encouragement and referral Mark.

Enjoy your evening.

PeterB

Peter B,

Lake G has plenty of walleye, several cought by bass fishermen this year, if you want to learn how to fish for walleye on this lake i suggest hiring a guide for one trip, the money you spend on a guide will be less than the money spent not catching. I can recommend John T as a good walleye guide and a charactor worth fishning with.
