    It’s beginning to sound like a broken record, but fishing still isn’t very good on Lake Geneva.  The best bite is the perch.  The smallmouth and largemouth bass are scattered between 12 and 20 ft of water.  They just won’t school up the way they should be, however if you find some you will catch a decent number of t...

    With the cooler weather we’ve had this past week, fishing has been difficult.  The most consistent bite for me has been the deep water bluegills.  As the water cools a few more degrees, the bite will switch from nightcrawlers and leaf worms to fat head minnows and golden shiners.         &nb...

Northern Pike have been sporadic.  Some good catches ...
