Mourning Doves serve as door to new seasons Micah and I will walk again into a new hunting season this afternoon like we’ve walked together into eight Septembers before. Mourning doves are calling us now, more as a way to shake the dust off and welcome a new autumn than anything else. Later it will be more “serious” pursuits of pheasant and duck. Almost certainly, my brother John and his lab Dylan will join us again today as th...

Delavan Lake Fishing Report 7/13/15 through 7/19/15

Delavan Lake fishing has been very good.  With the holiday weekend and the nice weather, the fishing pressure has been extreme.  For the best success, you want to fish early in the day or after about 4 p.m.    The walleye fishing has been awesome which is unusual for this late in the summer.

Walleye fishing has been excellent in 20-24 ft of water.  They can be caught on nightcrawlers on a split shot rig however, the best approach is lindy rigged leeches.  You want to fish the main lake points at low light conditions.

Largemouth bass are on the deep weed points in 15-20 ft of water.  Look for the fish by Willow Point and the Village Supper Club.  The biggest fish are right on the weedlines.  Fish for them on a drop shot rig or a split shot rigged nightcrawler.

Crappie fishing has been spotty.  Most of the action has come just off the weedline in 17-20 ft of water.  The fish are usually suspended 5-8 ft down.   The best location has been by Belvidere Park or just west of willow point.

Northern Pike action has been decent.  Most of the fish are coming out of 20-22 ft of water.  Look for them by the gray condos just east of the Yacht Club.  Lindy rigged medium suckers have been producing the most action.

Bluegills have been okay.  Most of the success has been coming out of 12-13 ft of water.  Most of the fish are coming by the buoy line in Viewcrest Bay.  The bluegills are biting on leaf worms on a split shot fished straight beneath the boat.

Smallmouth have been hit or miss.  Most of the smallmouth I’m catching are in 22-24 ft of water.  They are being caught on lindy rigged nightcrawlers or split shot rigged chubs.  Look for them by Belvidere Park or just west of Willow Point.

Good luck and I hope to see you on the water.  For guide parties, please call Dave Duwe at 608-883-2050
