Yellow perch are also in the shallows. They can be caught by Belvidere Park in 8-10 ft of water. The best approach is small fat head minnows fished on a Thill slip bobber. The only problem has been that the average size is about 5 inches. You will need to do a lot of sorting […]
Walleye action has been a good. The fish have been eating medium crank baits or extra large fat head minnows fished on a lindy rig. The best location has been by Belvidere Park or by Assembly park point. Most of the fish are undersized, you need to fish long and hard to fish a few […]
Bluegill fishing has been spotty. I’ve been catching one or two while bass fishing. The fish are suspending in the main lake basin about 10-15 ft down in 40 ft of water. The fish will move shallow as the water continues to cool. Once they are in about 10-14 ft of water they will be […]
Fall fishing, Lake Geneva, Delavan Lake, It’s a great time to be fishing both lakes as the fish are moving into their fall eating patterns. Come on out to the lakes and catch your trophy fish now!
Walleye fishing remains the best bite on the lake. The fish are by Knollwood, Trinkes and by the buoy line in Fontana. You need to look for them between the hours of midnight and 4 a.m. it is doubtful that you’ll find them any other time. A good chop on the lake will also help […]
Northern pike fishing has also been slow. I’ve been dragging medium suckers in 22-25 ft of water with very limited success. I’m fishing the suckers on lindy rigs about 1 foot off bottom. The northern pike bite will improve with a weather change as well.
8/16/18 Delavan lake, cloudy, 75 degrees, light winds out of the east, water temp 80 degrees. We caught 15 largemouth bass, 1 smallmouth and a bunch of blue gills. The fish were caught on split shot rigged nightcrawlers off the inside turns on main lake points.
Bluegill fishing has been very good though. The bluegills are in 18-22 ft of water. The best location has been by Elgin Club or by Gage Marine. You want to fish leaf worms about a foot off bottom. A vertical presentation has been the best so keeping your boat anchored is working well.
