Smallmouth bass are being caught in the 12-14 ft range. They are aggressively hitting nightcrawlers or football head jigs dragged on the bottom.

Fish Wisconsin! Fishing Reports for Walworth County Lakes; Lake Geneva, Lake Delavan, & Lake Lauderdale
rthern Pike action is steady. The fish are in the weed flats in front of Lake Lawn Lodge, Highland Bay and Viewcrest Bay. White spinner baits and chatter baits have been producing the most action. The only downside is that the fish have been on the small side.
