Genava & Victoria

4 posts in this topic

I've never fished the area, but was wondering if these lakes are worth a shot on opener. Just trying to put the girlfriend on a few fish. Geneva looks to have some good sand flats on the north side....any thoughts? Shooting for eyes, but wouldn't mind taking a break for some pannies as well. Do these lakes see a lot of pressure?

Thanks for the help

Benjamin

I used to fish geneva for years when I was a kid in the 60's. My grandparents had a resort (8 cabins). There was NO public access at the time, and the only way on was through narrow channels on victoria or Le Homme Deu (sp?) or the resorts. We caught BIG crapppies all the time, some around 15 inches, the sunnies were really nice as well. Some of the guests targeted walleyes and did well. Out in front of the tabernacle was a good spot for crappies. Walleyes by the point not far from the tabernacle. As far as fishing pressure, there was next to none back then, just a few boats on the weekends, now I have no idea.

should be worth a shot...neither lake gets a lot of opening weekend pressure. Victoria will traditionally give up a lunker each season (8-10lbs) Geneva has decent numbers too, with some good crappie fishing to fall back on. you'll be away from the crowds, close to town, and still have good opportunities for 'eyes, pike and crappies....(good size northerns in Geneva too...)

good luck and good fishing...

Ghotierman, last year you put me on some walleyes on Reno. What do you think I should do the week after opener on Osakis?

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
