Nobody posts reports anyway except Hero and the guides.Once in a while I do. I use to post a lot. To much negativity when I did. So let them have a discussion.  I'm going fishing for gills. As I like to say


ITS A PERFECT DAY FOR FISHING

zmaniac where is your fishing report on your post? Wow who is calling the kettle black, really the fishing is slow to none right now with this wind off the lake anyway. people just posting to vent, and usually all i do is post reports and photos.

Perhaps Darrin could create a separate thread for these topics like he has in the past... Fingers crossed, pretty please?

I do enjoy reading and researching about every lake that I fish. I wouldn't own a house in Delavan if I didn't care about this lake. In my eyes this was and still could be one of the best multi species lake of its size in Southern Wisconsin.

My point is that having to sift through all the so called nonreports isn't how this site was set up. If it was as easy as clicking on reports only I would do that, but all these Junior Biologists aren't posting under non fishing. Which I might add is in direct violation to the rules stated as you make your comments. All these postings could be flagged for abuse if the administration wanted to.

 It is somewhat hypocritical to post that someone isn't following the regulations or doing something wrong when the person making the post isn't following the rules and guidelines.

 I would love to read about everybody's opinion on the management of this lake, but not when I chose "reports only".

Checked the shallow water along the Northshore. Lots of bluegills. I gave up after fish #41. I had 1 that was 8".  Went searching other areas without success. Need warmer water.

Just wanted to point something out about the killing off of weeds and fish. 8 pages back on the Eagle Lake Racine Wi post I made a statement on what I wittnessed with this. if you look a couple posts after mine, Luke Roffler the senior fisheries biologist for walworth county posted on my comments. i dont claim to be an expert but with what i have seen with Delevan is the same as eagle, the fish caught seem to be sick looking, skinny, and alot of them deformed. I have to blame this on the chemicals. But anyway Luke posted his contact information and number. I am glad to see so many other outdoorsmen are noticing what is going on with the health and numbers on these Former great fisheries. yeah the weed problem was taken care of but.....   Just saying I have noticed a big decline of people using these lakes anymore, mainly Delevan. So mabey send him a message , give him a call  because really we are the eyes and ears for these lakes.

Using a site like this is just like fishing, really. You'll need to put up with a bunch of small ones (minds) for the chance for a quality fish, or in this case, post.
