I had a mid summer bass fishing trip with John about 6 or 7 years ago and learned more in four hours than fishing it for ten plus years.

John really knows the small details that make a huge difference in how many fish you catch out there.

When I brought up the subject of Nov. walleye he said one trick pony but I didn't pry to what that trick is.

He mentioned wanting to sell his place on Lake Geneva and opening a Bison ranch up north, I'm guessing that's what he's doing up there now.

If you can get a hold of him and be lucky enough to fish with him it's well worth the money.

How much does John Trossen cost? I try for walleyes all the time. Can't catch them. I am 50 and fished L.Geneva my whole life. Once I caught one off of Conference point on a rapala. I thought Trossen only caught walleyes in late fall and early winter off of L. Geneva.

I’ve been fishing LG for a while and have always struggled catching quality walleye. I know I posted on here several times asking for advice as the struggle was real! I received some private messages about talking with a guide, and John Trossen’s name came up a few times but after a few years of struggling I decided I wanted Mr. Trossen to show me the ropes. 2 weeks ago I saw that he was on Lake Link again so I sent him a private message and he responded with his phone number. When I called him he answered and we started talking fishing, 40 minutes later we scheduled a date for Friday night 1/11. I explained to John I am looking to learn the lake and his techniques. On Friday night I met John at his place and we drove to the launch. He was very friendly and right away he started teaching me the lake. We drove around marking spots, he explained the gear that he uses and how to present the baits to the fish. He was very hands on and made sure before the night was over I was confident that I could apply his methods when I am out on my boat. John and I had a great night sharing fishing stories and pictures of all the fish we have caught over the years. John is true multi-species fisherman from big crappie, walleyes, musky and bass! For anyone looking at learning the lake and his proven fishing techniques I would recommend reaching out to Mr. Trossen. Thank you John for a great night!

Best taking the boat out of storage if you're looking to fish Geneva anytime soon..... everything has broken up and doesn't look good moving forward weather wise. Rough year fellow fisherman! Time to visit the family in GL!
