Lake Geneva – Day Two

August 25, 2018

August 7, 2018

Perfect day. Check out the sunrise.

The arriving clouds blotted out the sun for most of the morning and the bass fishing was incredible in terms of numbers.  No monsters, but lots of fish pounding a willow leaf spinner bait in the shallow flats. Caught a few on a wacky worm, had several hits on the fly rod, a couple on a swim jig.

I’ve fished Lake Geneva many times over the years and it was just as I remembered, and dreamed about.

Tried a new lure today, an Arakushad 75, rattling shad bait.  The fish were all over this as well.  Fished it through cabbage weeds on an underwater hump and resulted in 7 or 8 more bass and a chunky 18″ fish off an underwater point/dropoff.

The biggest fish of the day was a 26″ pike caught by my wife on a willow leaf spinner bait.

Lots of loons. 10 when all counted.

Went out in the evening with my son, but the fish were not as active, catching a dozen over about an hour and a half.
