Could only fish for 2 hours because of rough water. We managed to get 4. One of the 4 was 31". We went North-West out of Geneva in 60-63ft of water. Used Dispy's with green/silver or green/blue worm harnesses. The fish are there it's just a matter of getting good weather to get em.

This week thought we would try Geneva. Went about 6 miles northwest. We caught 8 walleyes but nothing to brag about. All the walleyes are up high eating may-fly larva. So use your boards up high with small stinger spoons. The steelhead are hitting great. Landed 4 steelhead while trolling for walleyes.
Went up to Lorain again. Did ok. Caught 10 in the morning. Using dispy divers. With worm harness and stinger spoons. The biggest was around 28 inches the average fish was 23 inches. I've been told the walleye are starting to hit at fairport. I should be up there this weekend.
Went over to Lorain. We fished in the morning only and landed 16 nice walleyes. 4 over 28 inches. We used dispy diver with worm harnesses or spoons. Even took a couple on long 'A' bombers. The walleyes are coming east and thats great news.
Fished the same place as May 20th. Caught 11. Using the same tactics as May 20th.
Went to the western basin again. Caught 14. We caught them all around the 'A' can. We used bottom bouncers and weapons. The bast colors were gold, orange and green.
Went over to the western basin. Was fishing on tussaint reef. Started fishing at 4:00am had 20 by 7:00am. We fishing in the moring because fish have been shutting down around 8:00. We did the best on vertical jigging in 12-13 feet of water

Went fishing over to the western basin. Had some luck fishing on tussaint reef. Caught 15 vertical jigging spoons. Average size was about 20 inches. Could see the walleye rolling in 7 ft of water, so they are spawning now.
Went on a 7 day trip but only got to fish 5 days. We did really well we caught 96 walleyes. We had 11 Fish Ohio's and 34 over 25 inches. We went East by northeast out of Geneva State Park. The water depth was 68-70ft. Did the best on worm harness. Black with a with a purple stripe we also did ok on silver. The fish have come in to about 6 miles because of recent storms. If you get the chance head on up to Lake Erie. Fishing is geat!!!
Caught 5 Walleyes before 10:30 then the lake got flat and the fish turned off. We were out around 18 miles on the 330 line out of Geneva State Park. Did the best on blue long 'A' Bombers. Caught one on the dispy diver with a purple and silver warm harness.
Caught 10 nice walleyes from 6:00am till 12:00pm. 4 of the ten was over 25 inches. Went northwest out of Geneva about 17 miles. We did the best on Wireline that was down on the bottom with a long A bomber. We also did good on a blue Spoon. Worm Harnesses had some success off the dipsy 230ft. Our trolling speed was between 1.8 and 2.2mph.
Caught 8 walleyes. Two of them were over 29 inches. In 70-74 feet of water using Dipsy Divers and wire line. Doing the same stuff as the July 9th report.
Caught 9 walleyes from 20-28 inches using #1 large dipsys. In 70-74 feet of water straight north off of Geneva harbor. Trolling bout 2-2.5 mph. Using worm harnesses did the best on siver/purple and silver/blue 200-220 feet back. Did not do anygood at all on hardbodies. Caught all the fish on the outside lines. Waves were straight out of the north at 1-3 ft.
I went out for about 3 hours. Caught 9 walleyes. In 69-72ft of water.
I did the best on wire line with Long A bombers. I also did well on Dispy Divers with spoons and worm harnesses. The fish seem to be there all I need is more time to get out.
Attempeted to go fishing yesterday, but he lake was like the previous 4 weeks
very rough. I was able to fish for an hour but could not get out to the fish.
My friends been telling me that the fish are in 68-72 ft of water. The best way to go is dispys or planner boards. Sorry for about the last month or so of reports but its kinda hard to fish in 5 foot waves.
Went fishing in the western basin. Had good luck on Niagra Reef from 17-22 ft of water. The fish were taken on Orange Spoons with a very slow presentation seemed to work the best because the water is still on the cold side. The Water temp was 49 degree. All of the fish we caught were jacks from 18-22 inches long. Some fisherman were using helicopter jigs tiped with a minnow, but in my opinion vertical jigging Orange or yellow spoons seem to be the best bet.
