We only come out at night. Ron G name that artist. Late 90's or so.
Anyways, every once in awhile I like to do something new. Door County smallies, Depere walleyes, Southern IL bass fishing, Minnesota boarder lakes, etc. There has been something I have wanted to do for awhile, and it took a friend to push me in the right direction, and that is Lake Geneva night fishing. Specifically walleye fishing. I have read the reports for years and had friends go with guides and do well. My boats not set up for trolling and I really had no idea where to start. Hence a friend having some success with a non trolling bite and passing the info to me. Out of respect for my buddy, I won't give the specifics other then it is a finesse style pattern.
This month I have been out a total of 6 times, and 4 out of 6 have put walleye in the boat, with the biggest going 28. Every trip has produced between 5-10 smallmouth, with almost every one 18+. In fact many 20+ which is a nice bonus. Also a straggler tank largemouth and decent pike. The real killer is the rock bass, which we have caught in the hundreds. The key is to try avoid the areas with high concentrations of rockies/gills to at least the the gamefish a chance at seeing your presentation. Each night has been different which creates quite a learning curve for me. Most of my trips I have gotten out at sunset and fished until about midnight. The 28 was caught on a trip where I did not get on lake till 1am and was caught at 3am.
