Thread: Lake Delavan, Geneva, and the Madison Chain of Lakes

  1. Default Lake Delavan, Geneva, and the Madison Chain of Lakes

    The recent really hot weather patterns have fish setting up in traditional summer patterns. We have been finding largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and pan fish in the deep weeds at fifteen to twenty foot depth range. Been catching them while casting a split shot/night crawler and leeches in times of difficult bites, When the fish are biting good on texas rigged a drop shot four inch finesse worm in green pumpkin or blue flack. Bluegills and crappie are in 12 to 15 ft of water you need to move around to find the bigger fish. crawler chunks are producing most of the action while drop shot rig has been the best presentation.. Walleye fishing has been slower been catching a few on shot rigged night crawler in the weeds 12 to 18 ft. and along the deeper weed lines with rocks on mid lake rock structures.
    Today's Tip: "Finding the right weed cover on the right structure is key not all weeds hold fish." Find the right stuff and you'll find the fish."

    7/3/18 Lake Delavan A.M. partly sunny 85 degrees, SW winds, water temps 78, We caught 15 bass, two over 18 inches and a bunch of bluegill and perch. Cleaned a dozen for their fish fry.

    7/5/18 Lake Mendota A.M., sunny, 80 degrees, SE winds at 10 mph, water temp 79 degrees. 11 smallmouth, 2 largemouth 2 walleye and a few of bluegills. We fished weed lines in 12-18ft of water. We used slip bobbers and drop shot night crawlers and leeches. We fished Warner Bay Gov Inland, Tenney Park and city shorelines.

    7/6/18 Lake Kegonsa A.M. Sunny 85 calm winds , water temps 80. Caught 6 largemouth, 2 walleye, 3 perch, and 6 white/yellow bass on drop shot with crawler working the best. We did a lot of trolling because of the High water and a NO WAKE Restrictions had us trolling from spot to spot. Cleaned most of them for their fish fry.

    7/1/18 Lake Delavan A.M. partly sunny E winds, Water temps 80. Caught 10 bass, and a few perch along with a lot of bluegills. Weed less drop shot shot crawlers & leeches worked best near the Village Supper Club, Ash Pile, West of Willow Point and in front of Browns Point. Doctors appointment had us starting later than normal, so we missed some of the mornings prime time so our catch was off.
