Delavan Lake 5/9/22 through 5/16/22

Opening Day has arrived.  With the number of boats at the boat launch, all the other lakes in Walworth County must have seen very light boat traffic.  Boat trailers were being parked all the way to South Shore drive.  The best action continues to be the pan fish.  The bluegills are biting in the shallow water about 3-4 feet.  The best locations are the boat launch channel, the outlet near the dam, and near Lake Lawn Lodge.  The best approach is a single hook with a bobber, fishing red worms or leaf worms.  The bluegills are a few weeks away from spawning due to the cool spring.

 

Crappie fishing has been sporadic, some days they are biting well and the next day you’ll get skunked.  The best success has been in front of Lake Lawn or near Township Park.  The fish are suspended in 8-10 ft. of water.  Two presentations have been producing the most fish.  The first is a small 1/32 oz. Jig fished with a small Twister tail, white and yellow seem to be the best colors.  The second is slip bobber fishing for them with small minnows.

 

Walleye fishing was kind of slow.  Some nice fish were being caught on slip bobbers in 8-9 ft. of water.  The fish are just ending their spawn and will start to move out onto the weedlines.  The best bait for this week is large fat head minnows.  Check locations such as Willow Point, the Yacht Club point and Browns Channel.

 

Largemouth Bass can be readily found in a pre-spawn pattern.  The best depth is 3-4 ft.   There was a lot of fish activity in the outlet and in Lake Lawn Harbor.  The fish could be seen cruising all over, however, they didn’t bite that well.  Like the bluegills, the bass should be spawning in the next few weeks, so the sight fishermen should start having great success.

 

Good Luck and I hope to see you on the water, for guide parties, please call Dave Duwe at 262-728-8063.
