    Couple weeks ago, we looked to be heading into early ice up.  Last weeks warm spell opened things back up on our lakes. Many sportsmen and women have put their boats away and set their sights (literally) on other ventures.  (If I need to spell it out…hunting.  Get it?)  Still, for those who haven’t put their boats ...

    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 ...
