Dave Duwe Fishing Guide

Fish Delavan Lake, 5/13/24 – 5/20/24

The largemouth bass has been in pre-spawn and spawn patterns for the past week. They
can be caught while sight fishing or casting the shallow flats where there is a hard sand bottom.
A lot of the fish are being caught on tube baits or All Terrain Sticks. The best location has been
by the outlet or on the west end by the island. Many of the pre-spawn fish are over five pounds.
The crappie fishing has been excellent. Most of the fish are caught pre-spawn on the first
weedline break. The best bet is 12-15 ft of water. I’ve been catching most of my fish on small
plastics, either yellow or purple. Yellow has been outproducing the other colors. Look for the
crappies by the no wake buoys by the island or just off the gray condos.
Northern Pike fishing has been great in the shallow weed flats. Trolling large spinner
baits or shallow diving crank baits has been producing most of the action. Fire Tiger crank baits
or white spinner baits are the best option. I also have been fishing small suckers under a slip-
bobber. I work a depth between 8 and 10 ft of water.
Bluegills are in a water depth of 4-5 ft. They are biting on wax worms or leaf worms.
Try fishing for them with an ice jig with a bobber. They are a few weeks awayfrom spawning
The best location is by the gray condos or Browns Channel.
Walleyes are biting in the 8-12 ft depth range due to the water temperature. With the
cooler water they are not very active. Slip bobbers fished with fat head minnows are the best bet.
Good Luck and I hope to see you on the water. For guide parties, please call Dave Duwe
