Being a huge fisherman, conservationist, and aquarium guy, I wanted to ask anyone out there if they have done research on how we can help the northern pike in GL.  Like all of you, I've been fishing Geneva all my life.  I've done some research myself, and would like to experiment on different medications in my tank as a controlled environment.  I heard Praziquanel is an effective medication for parasites such as tapeworm.  It is not harmful to fish in the right dosage.  Understanding this would be a huge undertaking to medicate a 20 million gallon lake, it maybe the least invasive and most cost efficient.  I would be happy to donate my time and aquarium to any controlled trials for the cause.  Thoughts?

Fishing this week days and nights the night bite has been trolling and the rock bass would not stay off a few walleyes and a big ol pike add a smallmouth and a few little largemouth and it will keep you busy. We were also in the 8ft to 16ft. The day bite is still in 21 to 32 feet for smallmouth with the c-rig doing most of the heavy lifting. We have also had a few big smallmouth while bluegill fishing (very fun to watch) which is still hot in all depths today we found them in 39ft. along with smallmouth. I am seeing large schools of mimics at the surface the topwater bite is coming soon as the smallmouth are not far behind.

Got out with my good buddy Nick and my son for some night trolling. Fishing was absolutely bananas. Had a triple (eye, eye, pike), two doubles (eyes), multiple bass with some real pigs mixed in, a few northern and of course the ever present rockies. I don’t think we went more than 10 minutes without a bite while we were out from 7p-11p. (Stopped taking pics after the first hour and a half)No real big eyes but they were all 16-21in. We trolled various stick baits in 12-16ft. Was a blast! 

All fish were released.

They were stocking 108,000 extended length walleyes (5-8 inches). Several trucks worth & $200,000 in cost.  You Geneva fisherman are lucky.

Just hope the were putting and not takingl ike when they raped Geneva to stock Delevan after the poisoning. Or when they were seining the shiners to feed the fish hatcheries back in the old days.

Spent the week doing day and night and while we are catching walleyes at night trolling.  I am trying to keep as many as I can in the lake so we have been releasing them (all have been keepers) as I am hoping the rise in walleye numbers will crop down the stunted perch as this will hopefully get our perch size up and it seems that it has as I know perch anglers are starting to get 11 inch plus. We are also getting large, smallmouth and rock bass while trolling for the eyes. The day bite is good and getting better as the gills are moving up and the smallmouth are moving into fall patterns with the largemouth in 12ft and under in numbers. Yesterday I did a guide and while we fished 21 to 30 and caught smallmouth and a couple little largemouth on the c-rig and plastic.
