Dave Duwe Fishing Guide

Fish Delavan Lake, 6/10/23 – 6/17/23

Largemouth bass are still in post-spawn in the 3-4 ft depth range. The larger fish are on the deep weedline in 15-17 ft of water. I’ve been exclusively using Texas rigged Senkos in the shallow water. The best location for me is the west end by the Island or by Lake Lawn. The deep weedline fish can be caught lindy rigging nightcrawlers or by drop shotting finesse baits like a 4 inch worm. Smallmouth bass are spotty but are being caught on the deep weedline. The fish I’ve been catching are lindy rigged nightcrawlers while I’m fishing for walleyes. The Oriental boathouse or the Majors Estate are good locations. Blue gills are in the shallows spawning right now. The best depth is 1-3 ft around the boat docks. They prefer sand bottoms, so the north shore is a great option. They are being caught on wax worms, hellgrammites or small leaf worms. A bobber rig is the best presentation. Walleyes have been difficult to patterns, there are a few being caught but without any real pattern. The best method has been lindy rigging or using an Arkie ¼ oz jig on the weedline in 17-20 ft of water. The weedline by the gray condos has been the best bet. With all of the rain and worms in the water, that probably explains why the bite is difficult.

Good luck and I hope to see you on the water. For guide parties, please call Dave Duwe at 262-
