Dave Duwe Fishing Guide

Fish Delavan Lake, 6/12/23 – 6/19/23

Fishing has been outstanding. Largemouth bass are in between post spawn and the weedline bite. My best success this week was in 3-5 ft of water on cruising fish, also I caught fish on the deep weedline in 15-20 ft. With warmer weather the fish will all be deep but it was
fun to catch the shallow fish. The shallow fish can be caught on Wacky rigged Senkos or on a nightcrawler fished on a split shot rig. My best location was by Browns Channel or Willow Point. Bluegills are in different stages of spawning. There is quite a few in the 3-5 ft depth
range. The bigger fish I caught were in 12-18 ft of water. I was straight lining leaf worms or fishing them on a Thill slip bobber. Once I got on a good school of big fish, you could catch your limit very easily. The best location was by the Yacht Club or by the Island. Crappies are post spawn. They are on the outside edge of the weedline in 12-15 ft of water. In the early morning, you should look for surface feeding. I’ve been catching them by Browns Channel or by the Village Supper club. The best presentation is a 1/32 oz Arkie Jig fished with a purple or chartreuse twister tail. Walleye fishing has been improving. They have pushed out of the shallow weeds and are located in 15-18 ft of water. They can be caught either trolling crank baits or fishing lindy rigged nightcrawlers. The best location has been by Belvidere Park or by the gray condos. Northern Pike are being caught off the deep weedline on small suckers. Look for the fish by the gray condos or by Browns Channel. The best depth has been 18-20 ft of water. I don’t have any clue what happened to the big ones. I’ve been catching a lot of 25–26-inch fish. The size of the sucker hasn’t seemed to be a factor. The smaller fish have been eating the larger suckers. Good luck and I hope to see you on the water. For guide parties, please call Dave Duwe at 262-728-8063
