Fish, Delavan Lake, 7/1921 – 7/26/21

Walleyes have remained consistent.  The best action has been coming after dark.  However, I’ve been catching fish during the daylight too.  I’ve been averaging a legal fish every other trip.  My best success has come off of leeches or nightcrawlers.  I’ve been using lindy rigs with an 1/8 oz sinker or a split shot rigged […]

Perch fishing has been pretty good.  The fish have been biting on hellgrammites or ½ of a nightcrawler.  The best depth has been 17-19 ft.  The best location has been on the west end of the lake by the Island.

Rock Bass and Bluegills are literally everywhere throughout the lake.  The best depth of water has been 8-15 ft. of water.  Nightcrawlers are producing most of the fish.  It isn’t hard to go through 10-12 dozen nightcrawlers in a 4-hour guide party.  I caught most of the larger rock bass west of Linn Pier.

Perch and Bluegills are starting to bite in the shallows.  The bluegills and perch are both in about 5-6 ft. of water.  The best bait has been leaf worms or small nightcrawlers.  I fish almost exclusively a small hook and bobber combination.
