Bluegills have been slow for me. I’ve been fishing quite shallow and I think the fish are suspended in the main lake basin in 30-40 ft of water. Look for the fish by the Village Supper Club or just off the Yacht Club in the main lake basin.
There are over 37 lakes in Walworth County Wisconsin covering over 5,000 acres. Walworth County Lakes Association, manage all lake improvements. Many Beaches, State Parks, Boat Rentals, Resorts and more! Fish Walworth County, Lake Delavan and Lake Geneva.
Perch are starting to school up heavy right now. Look for them moving into 12-14 feet of water near the perch grass. The best approach has been slip bobbers and small minnows or leaf worms.
Panfish continue to be a constant bite. The key to catching them is a live night crawler fished on the split shot rig.
I think that the walleyes are a little deeper in 22-24 ft of water on the outside of the weedline. The best approach to catch them is chrome and blue jigging Rapalas.
Bluegills are still very deep. The best depth has been 29-30 ft. They are biting on small ice jigs tipped with small red worms. The best approach is straight lining beneath the boat.
Bluegills and Perch are still biting however the size was quite a bit smaller than in past weeks. Most of the anglers fishing for them are anchoring in 15-19 ft. of water.
The best approach is straight lining beneath the boat. Look for them in Williams Bay by either Gage Marine or in front of the swim beach. Smaller bluegills can be picked up drifting night crawlers while bass fishing. I’ve been having most of my success in 12-14 ft of water.
Walleye fishing has been very slow this week. Most of the fish are coming on large leeches fished on a lindy rig in 15-20 ft of water. Look for the fish by Browns Channel or by the Village Supper Club point. Very few legal fish are being caught.
