On at 9, off at 3:30. Yuck, I hate flat water. Very slow till 1. As Jeff pointed out. 90 % of the pan fisherman would be thrilled to get what we get. He is right. But when your looking forward to a big day and come up short. It is still hard to take. We each caught our hundred. Sunfish up to 9 1/2, gills to 8 1/2. But all in all, not a lot of size. It did not matter what color, they hit it. 8 to 15 feet all over the lake. Ice jigs with plastic and a wax worm. With out a wax worm, it did not matter. Even worms were working. After 1 they started to get more aggressive. Throw in a few bass and it helped to make the day. I was just spoiled by the day before. Looking too hard for a repeat. Best of luck to all.

There are times when you must turn a negative into a positive and the last two days were just that as I am waiting on a steering helm and had two of my best trips with Monday and two young men and dad we started at 7am till 11am and it was a drop shot and crawler in 12 to 28 feet. It started fast and lasted as the gills were waiting and hungry along with rock bass dad even landed a big smallmouth. Today I had a young lady and her dad we started in same area with the drop shot and pc of crawler. This young lady had it going on from start to finish with gills and rock bass she also had a big pike that she fought for quite a while before it came to surface and broke off. Watching the kids brings back memorys of me and my gramp ( priceless) I thank you dads for allowing me to spend time unhooking gills and talking fishing with the kids and to the young ones thank you for new memories that I will not forget. Sorry about no pics to busy and dads need to send me a couple.

Fished last night w/Kevin, he started out good with a few average bass on plastics. Made a move, put on some hardware, and clocked a nice 3.11 lm. Another 3lber soon after. Started trolling, nailed a 3.6 smallie, Kev boated a nice 30 plus inch pike. 13 bass , 1 pike, and the usual berage of rockbass. Finished up around 1 am.

Usually when you see them surface it's a great time for top water or shallow diving lures with flash.

 Some say they are site feeding for baby ducks… Some say they are cleaning their gills ... Or, Influencing gravity because they are trying to swallow something That got stuck ...I’ve seen northern doing this in the evening on Delavan lake as well

Have seen that my whole life I would say looking at life above water that’s where the gator name comes from. I saw one try and take a seagull on delavan a guy went out and caught her she was 19lbs was awesome to see.
