Fish, Lake Delavan 8/2/21 – 8/9/21

Dave Duwe Fishing Guide

Large mouth bass fishing has been very consistent.  The best pattern seems to be dock fishing.  The easiest time to fish docks is early in the morning before the heavy boat traffic begins.  The best docks are around 6-8 feet of water at the ends.  Almost all the fish have been caught on the shady […]

Fish, Delavan Lake, 7/1921 – 7/26/21

Walleyes have remained consistent.  The best action has been coming after dark.  However, I’ve been catching fish during the daylight too.  I’ve been averaging a legal fish every other trip.  My best success has come off of leeches or nightcrawlers.  I’ve been using lindy rigs with an 1/8 oz sinker or a split shot rigged […]

Largemouth bass have been the best bite on the lake other than the bluegills.  They are in the 15-20 ft depth range and can be readily caught on either drop shots with a 4 inch worm or nightcrawlers fished on a split shot rig.  The best location is by 3 flags or by concrete point.  […]

Crappies have pulled off the weedline.  They are suspending in 15 ft of water.  The best approach has been purple plastic.  Look for the fish over by Browns Channel or west of the Yacht club.  I use a 1/32 oz Arkie Jig and a 3/0 split shot 1 ft above the jig.  That allows you […]

Fish Delavan Lake, 6/21/21 – 6/28/21

The best location is under the bridge on the inlet.  For the deep weedline fish, try casting nightcrawlers fished on a split shot rig.  Some of the bass I caught last week were 17-18 inches.  Good locations are by the Oriental boathouse or on the west end by the island. Bluegill fishing remains awesome.  There are […]

Fish Delavan Lake, 6/14/20 – 6/21/21

Crappies are on the weedline in 12-16 ft of water.  I’ve been using the mini mites with a 1/32 oz jig and small 3/0 split shot hooked about 6-8 inches above the lure.  Most of the fish I’ve been catching are between 6 and 7 inches.  You really need to sort to catch a limit […]
