It’s been awhile the wife is having some medical issues so time has been limited. The day bite has been largemouth on the drop shot in 6 to 20ft fish throughout but finding the bigger ones has been a challenge the smallmouth have been deep with the c-rig. The walleye, gill and smallmouth are still on the drop shot and crawler in 26 to 40ft The water temperature today was 73 degrees. Hope all had a great weekend.
71° - 75° F
76° - 80° F
Anyone have a daytime water temp as of today? Water safety patrol website says 71. Is that accurate?
Decoy, are you using any electronics - if not, you should be. Geneva is a big, deep lake that holds tons of good fish....on certain structure.... Finding them with good, properly used electronics doesn't guarantee you'll catch them, but if you're fishing where they 'aren't', you most certainly won't catch them. If you don't have electronics, get some......if you do, really spend the time to figure them out to your best ability. You'll catch them - be persistent.....they are there.
Well another big fat goose egg for me. On at 6 off at 11 targeted eyes and caught 1 short. I constantly struggle with this lake, I catch 1 here 1 there but I have yet to connect like so many of you other guys. I tried drop shot, trolling, and casting cranks shallow. Anyone willing to share a little info I’m all ears. If not that’s fine too I’ll be back another guy for another round. Lol. No matter what it’s always nice to get out.
Jj, generally I have better luck (bigger fish, and more fish) with live bait. That said, one of the biggest walleye I ever caught on Geneva was on an old Abu bucktail spinner bait. Switch things up or move, if you're not catching fish. Geneva is an awesome fishery...

Fished with Prov last night, 8-12. Prov was dialing in his graph, so our depths were a little off. Water was quite murky, and there were huge schools of minnows everywhere. Caught a few bass casting, and trolling, as well as 1 eye. Was a beautiful night to be out. Good luck, good fishing, Woody!
Looking at coming here for the first time. I realize it's a night bite but are guys using live bait or artificial mainly? Just looking for a direction is all. Thanks in advance
Is there any good public shore fishing spots on this lake with deep water open for night fishing? I heard somewhere by fontana but im not super familiar with the lake.I did really good in the boat last week on walleyes.24 inch was the biggest and some 19s and 21s but i dont have a boat of my own.Thanks for any info!!
