    Well there’s good news and bad news on Lake Geneva.  Since Labor Day has come and gone, the pleasure boat traffic has dropped off a lot.  There is plenty of room for the fishing boats.  The bad news of course, is that the fishing is just not that great. The largemouth bass are in small schools.  Once you hit a school you ...
