At least some of the lakes on the fox chain have the same thing going on. Can't cast a jig or troll without a hook full of slimey weeds.

Looking for more information on the green slime situation. Interested in bringing wife, kids and grandparents on a trip to Delavan during the month of June for fishing and swimming.

This will be a no-go if the Lake is inhabited with slime.

thanks to anyone who can provide information.

Fishing for bluegills is starting to heat up now and will only get better as the water warms. Here is client Tom K with a couple of nice ones!

Hi to All,

Would you please advise if this green slime clouds all over the lake is typical for Delavan ( I haven't seen something like this before), and if yes is it related to some algae blooming at this period and for how long it will last.

I have been fishing during Memorial weekend, beside windy and green slime waters, enormous boat traffic so far only one LMB. I give UP.

No pike at all.

thanks P

I fought the SLIME and the SLIME WON. On at 8, off at 12. Wind was high when we started, so I did not want to go down the lake. Stayed up on the north end and just dinked around. Had a nice young man in the boat today. I found the fish and he caught them. We had about 40 gills and kept 25. Nothing bigger than 8 inches. Same old rig. Ice jig with plastic and a wax worm. The active fish were tight to the bottom. Had to go down to get them. Maybe this afternoon when the rain stops, they will turn on. On to the YADA, YADA. Slick and me see eye to eye. Some say he is slow because he was dropped when he was young. Others say, it was later in life when he fell off the turnip truck. I say he just takes his time to think things through. Such as, I says to him. How come there is never enough time to do a job right the first time. But always enough time to do it over. It took for ever for him to respond. He says to me. If a feller would say that before he started a job. There would be a whole lot less do overs. More on Slick later. THE WARDEN HAS LOST OVER A THOUSAND LBS. since we got married. She said she is getting close to the 127 lbs. instead of the 127 kilos. She has two problems. Mashed potatoes and ice cream. Now you young ones are not going to get this. The problem is she eats them like a little bird. A peck at a time. I told her, get in the car. We are going to go get some ice cream. I told her I had to stop at the feed mill first. Now Slick always calls everyone by their last name. MR. Smith or MR. Jones. He could never pronounce my last name. So he always called me MR.L. I pulled up at the mill and went inside. I says, Slick my boy. This is how it is going to go down. I am parked on the scale. When I go out and distract the WARDEN. You slide on over and take a reading. When you give me the high sign. I will get her out of the car and off the scale. You take another reading. You make this work and there will be a little something in it for you. Faster than I can ever remember he replied. MR.L, you is pure evil. But if you give me permission to use this plan of yours. You don't have to give me nothing. You got it Slick. It worked perfect. Slick says to me, she is down to 127 lbs. and 960 ounces. I love that boy. Now lots of people say I am evil. I say, I was a perfect gentleman. If I was evil, I would have waited till after she had her ice cream. BEST OF LUCK TO ALL. Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile

Tough day on the water yesterday, Memorial Day. Very windy, enough rain to make it miserable. My son caught 7 LMB between 1.5 and 3.5 lbs. The real problem is the slime. Gargantuan amounts. Every cast/retrieval required hook/jig cleaning. Every single time. Having lived just off the lake for 15 years and fished it for longer, this is just awful. I don't know what's going on. Is it mismanagement? Possibly. Is it "natural"? The water is so clear that the sun can make everything grow below the surface. Based on the lake mismanagement of the last few years (actually going back to the mid 90s), I can only point my finger towards them. As stated in an earlier post, people will go elsewhere.

Does the WARDEN check us for contraband before we get on the boat?
