Had a three man walleye trip on Tuesday from 7pm till mid but we started as a two man as the third did not get in till 7:30pm. We started with boat in 36ft casting into 20s and snap jigging back to boat and with the heavy cloud cover the walleye were biting but getting them into boat was a issue but we managed to get a few with one being 23 inches and the rest being just under 18 inches. We picked up the third guy and made a change to the spinner rig and crawler and the weeds made it tough we had a few misses and rock bass. Made a move but to no avail so we called it a night. Was back out out Wednesday eve from 4pm till 8:30pm and it was a family affair with dad, son and daughter fishing while mom took pics we started in 26ft with drop shot and crawler pc. With dad casting tube and it was on as the daughter went to work and the gills and pumpkin seeds were eager to bite and she had the system down. The son took alittle longer but was on it in no time and dad missed one bass before I switched him over to the drop shot. We did not have to move but I wanted mom to see the sights so we relocated and the action Was nonstop for the gills and the son wanted a bass so he went with a wacky rigged pc of a beef stick ( slim Jim) and had a 3lb smallmouth on but it jumped off. As the sun set the daughter landed a walleye and the dad missed one great night with awesome famliy. Back out this morning from 6am till 11:30pm two man crew we started with Ned rig in 6 to 12ft can you say largemouth and a bonus smallmouth then we slid out and did c-rig and drifted 26 to 32ft but only found a couple smallmouth and a monster carp time to move drfted 21to 30 ft a couple more smallmouth ( small) made move drifted 26 to 34ft and found one bigger smallmouth all caught by middle man in boat. We made move and switched to gills in 28ft with drop shot and crawler pc. They were amazed by how big they were and how fast they would bite. Had a evening trip with three guys with a dad and son we started at 4pm till 8pm we started with the drop shot and crawler pc and even with the wind the bite was on. The son was on a tear and dad was feeding them but figured it out but it was to late as the son never stopped. The guy in the back got it going and was having a blast. We made a move and found them in 18 to 24ft but they were smaller so back into wind and 27ft found the big gills and huge pumpkin seeds hung out there till dusk the made move and switched to snap jigging and the son did it again with his first eye we had a couple more hits but time ran out. Awesome young man will be a badger this year way to go.
Have been on geneva the majority of the week. The bass trips have been up and down with some great fish being caught , but they have been alot of work. The gills and seeds have been big and consistent. 16 to 22 fow has been producing. Live bait has worked best for us.

Late report from Saturday night. Started about 6pm, with Kevin and Brian. Hit for 3 bass right away in cisco bay, moved over to the south side, but very slow. Hit the nogo, for a few more bass. Called it quits around 1am, with a total of 11 bass. Good luck, good fishing,
Woody! Ps, great fireworks display out there!
Anyone been having luck chasing lake trout lately?
Anybody fishing for Northern this time of year? Used to use Lindy Rigs and chubs ala Brian Gates, May he Rest In Peace.
I am sorry about late report way busy last week so here We go the best bite has been bluegill and pumpkin seeds in 21 to 30ft with drop shot and crawler pc. This presentation has caught panfish, smallmouth, largemouth and even pike this is truly a hard to beat way of fishing. Besides the walleye we have been getting durning the day the evening snap jigging has also been catching walleye. The smallmouth bite has me chasing my tail and while I have struggled using the plastics the drop shot crawler pc has caught small medium and very large bass the largemouth are spread out in the weeds and are from shore to drop offs cover water find and catch a few when it slows move on and on oh ya. The pike are also a lot shallower then you would expect this year. The rock bass are from shore to 16ft about have not been getting them deep. This morning we caught them as we were starting in 8ft working out to 30ft this afternoon we stayed deep 20 to 35 father and son 200 gills 3 walleye 10 smallmouth ( two good ones) no rock bass. Stay positive keep moving set the hook thank you lord for a great day
