    Fishing remains fantastic.  The fish are in their mid summer pattern and they have schooled up and can be caught if you find the schools. Northern Pike fishing has been relatively slow this week.  I think most of the problem is that the bluegills have slid off the weedline and are in 18-24 ft of water.  The few pike I’ve been ...

    Fishing on Geneva remains very consistent.  There are fish to be caught every time out.  The best bite is the Northern Pike and Walleyes after dark. Northern Pike fishing has been excellent.  Most of the fish are being caught in 30-32 ft of water.  The best location is in Fontana or the north shore in the narrows.  The bes...

    Lake Geneva continues to be really good fishing but it also continues to be super busy with pleasure boats.  Plan to fish early a.m. or late p.m. for a safer, more productive trip. Lake trout continue to bite in the main lake basin.  The best time to try for them is early a.m. as the sun in coming up.  Look for the fish 90 ft down i...

    Fishing overall on Delavan remains very consistent.  There are many anglers trying to test their talents on the wary fish.  Yellow Perch have been biting in front of Township Park in 12-14 ft of water. Locate yourself in front of the beach area for the best success.  The best presentation has been using Thill slip bobbers tipped wit...

    If you are interested in Walleye fishing, this is the best time for both quantity and quality.  Many fish are being taken between 11 pm and 3 am.    Boat traffic is at a minimum at this time.  Most of the legal fish are being taken on leeches.  Night crawlers are a good option, however you will catch more bass and rock...

    Bluegill fishing has been excellent.  Most of the bigger bluegills are in 15-18 ft of water.  The best location is west of the Yacht Club or by the island.  They are being caught on leaf worms or small red worms.  The best presentation is slip bobbers or fishing straight beneath the boat.  I have found that the bigger fish ...

    Fishing continues to be excellent.  The bass bite is very steady and other species are now starting to turn on!  The only problem has been excessive boat traffic with the holiday weekend but we’ve come to expect that. The largemouth bass I’ve been catching are in medium depth weeds in 12-14 ft of water.  The best present...
