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 weeds 12 -15 ft of water and suspender 10- 15' of water in 30' to 50' ft. of water. a crawler chunk or red and purple plastics was producing most of the action. 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."
