Default Lake Geneva & Lake Wisconsin report [pics}

My family spent Mon-Tues-Weds of last week on Lake Geneva. I did not bring the boat and was glad I left it at home. The wind was roaring out of the South at 40+mph all 3 days .
The wind did calm down a little in the evenings enabling us to fish off some piers.

The water was all churned up after the big blow and my expectations were low.
I've heard about big bullhead in LG but never caught any until now.

One night we must have caught 15+ huge bullheads jigging off a pier, with a few bluegills mixed in.

We spent Thu-Fri-Sat on Lake Wisconsin and really got into numbers of fish.
We burned through 4 dozen fatheads and 30 leaf worms in one evening of none stop action.
We jigged up nice whitebass, some smallies, sauger and walleye {all small}, channel cats, and of course some sheepshead.

Here's a few pics of the better fish.

If I didn't have so many "plans" with the wife and kids those days on LW, we could of really put a hurt on the fish because the fishing was on fire.

Lo the angler. He riseth in the early morning and upsetteth the whole household. Mighty are his preparations. He goeth forth with great hope in his heart and when the day is far spent, he returneth, smelling of strong drink, and the truth is not in him.

That's why you make plans FOR the wife and kids, but not with the wife and kids... Nice smiles on the ball n' chains...
