Caught these two magnums last night kayak fishing.  They were cpr'd, as bedding and spawning fish should be!

I can't catch a cold on this lake.  I just moved to the Highlands area and have launched on bluegill road twice this week and have yet to boat a fish. Trying to get a 6 year old into fishing without catching fish is quite a challenge. The green slime is a nuisance too. 

Can anyone pm me tips, depths, areas, tactics, etc that might produce? Mainly a bass/pike/pan fish fisher. Not looking for your honey holes.

I seem to hold my own on Geneva but would like to learn my backyard lake.  Thanks all.

ON at 8:30, off at 5. UGH, it was tough the first five hours. Could not buy a bite. So Dumb and Dumber went sight seeing around the lake. We looked at all the bass on the nests. Also lots of fish that wouldn't bite. Gave up looking for crappies and just killed time waiting for the water to warm up. At 2 we found 65 degree water filled with gills and sun fish. First time in 10 years we threw almost 8 inch gills back in the water for being to small. It's been a long time since I have caught so many 8 1/2 to 9 inch gills and sun fish at one time. The hotter it got the faster they bit. Best bait was a single wax worm on a plain number 8 short shank hook. Plastic was worthless. Even them big dumb bass were taking the single wax worm. Turned into a great day for fishing. Best of luck to all.

So scrolling back I see that the season pass went up.

Did daily fees increase as well?

May come this weekend for the first time this season.

On at 9, off at 3:30. Not much to say. Water was COLD. Inlet 58 when we got there, 56 when we left. Every one we saw or talked too, had a few fish. We had some nice bass, a few gills and some crappies. We did not kill them. The crappies were biting so light, that half the time when setting the hook, All I was doing was pulling the minnow out of their mouths. Had a new anchor puller in the boat. As always happens, when you want to put on a clinic. You get zip. Wanted to go around the lake, but the wind was way to high. Still it is always nice to be out, even if I get out fished. Best of luck to all.

Depends.... 57-58 on the main lake and you can find 59-60 in the shallows (i.e., Inlet, etc...).

Out with Guide Ide on at 12:30 a.m. off at 2:30 a.m. with a limit of beautiful walleye. He was running some really weird colored cranks, can't tell you what they were because never saw those colors before. All I know is I  had a limit in an hour and 45 minutes. Great time, non-stop action, boated 10 more undersized walleye's and two 15-18" LM Bass!

Both depends on conditions and where they are staged each of my last few trips has been a little bit different. They are not in a consistent pattern yet

Tresz, yes you can pay for your seasonal launch pass, via check, at the launch guardhouse.  I did this several weeks ago.
