WATER TEMP
56° - 60° F

After a good day yesterday and sitting through the Packers game today. I had a bunch of minnows left and wanted use them. Was hoping for some crappie action but with the rain couldn't bring the electronics out. Made it tough to find the right spot. Last spot I hit provided a few nice gills up to about 8". Highlight of the short outing was while bringing in a gill a large Lower Gen pike came out of the weeds and took my fish. Well the pike didn't care and took me for a short ride. Fought it for about 3-4 mins, knowing full well my 4lb test was no match. Tried to let it play itself out but it made one last run and the line went limp. Est the fish at 35-40". Wish I had a setup on board for the pike. Didn't find the crappie but was a fun couple hours.

If your done on lower you can always drop in across the street and finish your daily limit on middle. If you got patience it could definitly be a fun day if the weather is good and you are using a kayak or canoe.

Thanks APfisher. Info I'm looking for. Would be nice to have a pretty lake like this one close to Milwaukee where I could count on a meal or two of gills now and then. Hoping to get familiar enough with the lake to do that. Nice with no fee and a new launch also. Printmaker

MOON PHASE
Last Quarter

These are from late spring for whoever was asking about gills.

I was targeting the trout, but got these ones. The one yellow belly was fat with eggs. From the small bay on the east side.

All CPR (the 1 trout I actually caught slipped out of my hand and was planning on keeping lol).  

I fished all afternoon all over the lake in my kayak and this is all I caught. Better than being skunked!

Only one of the lakes has a few 40 inch pike. That would be Lower. They feast on the stocked trout. Lakes can grow more big pike if there is some soft fin forage like trout or Cisco. Not very many in there tho. Upper has a few mid 30's pike. Middle has a fair amt of legal size pike but almost all are 26 to 30. There might be a few bigger but I personally haven't seen them in all the years I fished there.

Im no expert on the carp.

Hello! I am posting in this feed, but my questions apply to all three Genesee lakes.

Are there decent pike in here? I normally catch and release, but I wouldn't mind some tips on hwo to hook into one.

I've seen some massive carp on upper genesee-are they big in all 3 lakes? I wouldn't mind hooking into another 20+ pounder like I've caught in the past. Where have people seen them? (I'll take out any common carp I catch).

Thanks - and tight lines.

I think the pike are more the problem. The bass probably feed on the trout more imo. That's what helps them grow so large. But there are some giant pike in here. In fall I wouldn't hesitate a small musky lure or two
