Caught 14 bass and 1 northern. Only 1 of the bass was legal size, all catch and release. Best early in the day in shallow water.

Was wondering about the boat launches. According to what I read on here, there is only one with parking access for trailers. Is there a fee to launch here. I'm looking to get out with my dad, and have only ice fished here. Thanks ahead of time for any info.

Went out with the boys today to get on some perch and we did.  Found some good ones and kept a dozen with some of them big, kept a few that were 11" and one 12".  Caught many small bass, couple pike, and some large rockies and warmouth.  All fish caught in 4'-6'.  Some a**hole told the lake police that I was keeping undersized bass, really!?  Police checked my cooler and license said good job with the perch when is the fish fry, he was a total gentleman.  If you can't tell the difference between a largemouth and a perch keep your mouth shut or maybe your used to keeping all the 6-7" inchers and can't recognize a decent sized one.  Done with the rant, I knew it would be a good day for perch with the heat and low winds, that's when I usually do my best.

Made it out for the first time in a month with my boys.  We fished perch and did pretty good in the morning.  Caught around 30 and kept 7 that were between 8"-11" probably lost 4 or 5 other good ones including a jumbo trying to flip them in the boat.  Perch were fat and I pulled a 3 inch crayfish out of one of their bellies.  Also caught the usual small bass and pike.  Tried deep for bluegills and caught 2 big ones right away that I released.  Probably could of caught a lot of gills, but at 10:00 this lake goes nuts with boats. Perch were shallow as usual this time of year.

There are a few savy big bass and pike in the lake but most are dinks and axe handles. Not sure what the answer is to making the fish bigger but living here on the lake is bittersweet for me.

Report and some questions. Fished Powers today for the first time ever with the intentions of targeting bass. Went 3 hours without a bite. Found some weeds and it was game on. During the next 3 hours we boated 10 bass, 15 pike 2 walleye and 1 bluegill. Most were caught on jerkbaits. The bass were 12-15 inches, pike were all "snot rockets" the 2 walleye were 16"and 17" and the gill was 9" All the fish we caught were in 6-10ft of water.  

My questions are. Are there any big fish in the lake, specifically bass, and will the weeds eventually fill in? We saw plenty of small spooky bass in less than 6ft of water. Didn't see or catch anything worthwhile. Would I be wasting my time returning?

Got out at about 10:00 today and it was a good one.  Caught some big gills on waxies and crawler chunks, both were about equal.  Kept 15 all around 8-8 3/4" and let go some real big ones caught one that was just over 10" and probably 10 more over 9", I let anything 9 or better go.  During a slow in action I tossed a paddle tail swim bait and got a 16 1/2" walleye on my second cast of course released do to the new 18" minimum.  Took a break from the gills and tossed the swimbait around hoping for another eye, but caught over 20 largemouth instead none over 2 and half lbs.  Caught some huge rock bass on the swimbait as well.  I fish Geneva as well and the rock bass in this lake are just as big or bigger.  

Late report from a week and a half ago.  Crappie every cast when you found them and I found them in multiple spots, it was hard not to catch a crappie some of them were very big 13-14".  Easily caught 50 crappie though most were kinda small.  Caught a few bedding smallmouth as well just for fun.  All fish released that day, I don't keep crappie.  

Pictured is an over 10" gill released, hard to take good pics by yourself.  And a 9 3/4 gill that swallowed my jig or I would have released it and the lone walleye.
