Had a great day today with Doug Becker and we didn't need to fish live bait. Caught a good mix of SM and LM with a number of pigs like this. Water temp was 58-59 everywhere.

My first year fishing on Geneva. Fished Sunday and could only catch very small perch. Could anyone offer help on catching keeper perch in Geneva or are they just all small?

Fished yesterday (11/12) 11-4. First really bad day all year. Zero fish. Tried finesse plastics, cranks. Work 8-12', then 15-25'. Nada. Tried weed edges, rocky drops, points etc. Probably need to go to live bait which I don't like but hey it's that time of year. Tight lines

basscat: with the water temp in the 50's the smallies want meat. large fatheads or suckers fished in 25-35 fow. i dont like fishing with live bait but the reality is it outperforms artificials big time this time of year.

Was out Sat 7-12. water temp 53-55. had to work for them. next couple of weeks should be strong.

Basscat13 excellent smallie fishery, fish the drop at maytag point, also fish the hump in the narrows across from lynn pier your chip should point them out for you I have had excellent luck slow dragging a night crawler up he brakes. Pulling cranks at the weed edges also works well. its a big lake with big fish. I have fished this lake for 47 years and have caught hundreds of smallmouths,All left in the lake for others enjoyment. Tight lines.

I'm usually fish the Mississippi River where water clarity is about a foot. Heard Geneva is like 15 to 20 feet. Never fished anything that clear. Not too sure how to fish that. Kind of a rookie. Bought the lakemaster chip and hot spots map like a tourist thinking that might help but any tips would be nice.

Ok. Thanks. We'll check it out. What's the smallmouth fishing looking like this year? Been reading a few reports on lake link and haven't heard much. A lot of talk about night fishing. Things should pick up with the cooler weather. Read a lot about lake Geneva having a good smallmouthh population. That's the main reason we are going. Loaded up with tubes, jigs and uncle joshed pork. Are those good baits to use or is live bait the best on Geneva?

Municipal pier(s) in LG. Plenty of places for food within walking distance. Have fun!

Me and my dad are heading to lake Geneva for a weekend fishing trip next weekend. I've never been there and my dad hasent been there since the 70's. What are some good places to stop for lunch on the lake that has a place to park the boat while we are eating?
