    Wow, what an absolutely outstanding week for fishing. The musky bite was on-fire and action for walleyes and crappies was unbeatable.  We even picked up some very nice northern pike and a few nice bass.  Water temperatures are in the mid 50’s right now and it has really triggered a great fall feeding bonanza. For you musky guys n...

    Lake Geneva’s water has been cooling slower than I can remember.  The water temperature is still 64-66 degrees.  The best bite has been largemouth bass.  They are in the medium depth rocks with weeds in 15-18 ft of water.  The best location has been by South Shore Club or by Trinkes.  They can either be caught while ...

    The exceptionally warm fall has the fall bite delayed a bit.  With the cooler water temperatures the fishing is starting to improve.  The walleyes I’ve been catching are in 20-25 ft of water.  They can be caught on chrome and blue jigging Rapalas or lindy rigging extra large fat head minnows.  The best location has been b...
