Still cant get under the bridge going to le homme du and get to favorite walleye spot, so any hints how to catch them on geneva would be helpful. Going to be up wed thru the weekend and hitting it hard.

WHY DON'T YOU JUST LOAD YOUR BOAT UP AND LAND IT IN LE HOMME DU?

Trying to save money and drive the car up that gets almost 40 mpg than the truck that gets almost 11 mpg.

is the first bridge giving you trouble?...last time through i notice the water was down about 3-4 inches...i've got 6-7 inch clearance over the windshield on my bayliner capri....

geneva walleyes tend to turn on in cooler water...think fall. i've been meaning to look at some of the deep basins there. maybe draggin a leech or crawler deep...28-35 feet...on either side of the bar that comes out from the channel to victoria...the bar tops at 25 foot or so...maybe try trolling along that.

other advice is to look to the weeds...think like a bass fisherman and rig a weedless leech and drag it along the thicker cabbage, or over the top even.

crankbaits would be an option too, and might result in a few nice pike.

you should be able to get through to victoria, and try there for some eyes on the steep breaklines.

good luck and good fishing

Yeah I tried last weekend and still 1" or so short. Thanks for the info and suggestions. Going to hit it hard and hopefully I get into a few of them.

WOW! That must be one heck of a boat to not make it. I had no problems with my tall boat/windshields. I saw a couple large full windshield Lunds and Alumacrafts made it through without issues also. Victoria and into Le Homme Dieu.

I've seen guys pull the plug to sink their boats enough to make it under bridges before... grin.gif

Good luck

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.
