Couple days at delavan

Two of the best lakes in southern Wisconsin. Only a short cast away from Chicago.

Fished thurs, fri and till 11 on Saturday. Nothing beat a wacky worm for some lunker bass. This lake never seems to disappoint when weather cooperates.

Very nice. Delavan has had a nice rebound this year. Tons of bass in the lake right now from 2-3 lbs with the occasional horse.

Them there are some nice ones. Couple over 5 right? Spring is the only time of the season I don’t throw wacky rigs, I may just have to throw them more based on your success. Are you working real slow with hops back to the boat or letting them drop, soak a few second and just reeling them back for another cast? Thanks for sharing

I cast them out and just let them them sink 4 or 5 seconds. Just give them a few twitches now and then. I work prob around 5 feet and reel in and recast. They
usually bite when not moving the worm. Dark colors With some glittter. I like to use the heavier worms that sink a bit faster.

Nice fish, looks like a solid trip
