Delavan Lake, 9/21/20 – 9/28/2020

Dave Duwe Fishing Guide

Largemouth bass have moved off the deep weedline and now are in 10-12 ft of water.  I’ve been fishing either slip bobber rigged suckers or split shot rigged worms.  The key to finding the right location is large holes in the thick weed mat.  Once you find these sandy spots, you basically just cast your […]

Delavan Lake Fishing, 8/17/20 – 8/24/20

Walleye pike fishing for me has been pretty much non-existent.  It’s basically just the time of year and where I’ve been fishing.  The best approach is trolling deep diving crank baits along the weedline in the pre-dawn hours.

Perch and Bluegills are starting to bite in the shallows.  The bluegills and perch are both in about 5-6 ft. of water.  The best bait has been leaf worms or small nightcrawlers.  I fish almost exclusively a small hook and bobber combination.

Bluegills have been a guaranteed bite for the last week.  Some of them were in excess of 10 inches.  You had to weed through lots of small ones to catch a good dinner.  The best depth was in the shallow weeds in 3-4 ft. of water.  I caught all of my fish on an ice […]

Crappies were very sporadic.  I spoke with several people who caught limits in 14-16 ft. of water on the west end of the lake.  The bait of choice for them was small tube jigs fishing for suspended crappies.  When I tried for them, they moved out of the area.  The crappies will bite but it […]
