Greetings fellow fisherman. I am not that new to the lake however I am extremely new to the art of catching walleye. I have only caught a couple walleye in my life mostly by accident. I do not have any friends colleagues or even acquaintances to help guide me in any sort of direction. I have read years worth of back posts numerous articles and watched many videos. Nothing I put together seems to work for me. Any tips tricks or even a person to fish with and help show me the ropes would be greatly appreciated. I have a decent boat and eager to learn. PM me with if you are willing to help and thank you all.

My son and I were out yesterday. Managed a few nice LM, 18" being the biggest which my son caught. Great time but the wind ended up driving us off the lake early afternoon. It wasn't about the qty of fish caught although we did catch a few but more so bonding with my son. He is really taken a liking to fishing so we're going as much as possible.

Was out noon-dark. All the bass looked like they have been starving and their eyes were sunk in to their heads. The amount of vegetation floating on the surface making it almost impossible to do any type of casting with lures. Suckers on slip bobbers got the most action but had to reel up and clear line every minute or so. Very frustrating.

Went out today after bass and gills, started out for bass and caught a few bass early on with biggest at 19" another at 18" a few others also. Then went to try for gills and caught 17 nice ones in the last hour or two, the wind picked up and we could not hold with 2 anchors so we called it a day. Not a bad day with all the bad reports on here, but the lake does have some problems with the slime and murky water. Not the lake Delevan it was a few years ago. Hope they do not spray next year, don't know how much more this lake can take to keep these nice fish alive.

Late post - Out last weekend with my brother and his son. Caught some nice gills on slip-0bobbers in 8'-14' feet of water along with 5 walleye, 3 pike and 4 bass. Largest bass was 20.5" 4lbs 7oz. Kept 15 gills. All other fish released! Great way to spend time with family.

The fish kill you see is not due to spraying,lack of oxygen is probably the cause.The kill is probably specific to areas where this condition exits.

A friend and I are looking to get out and fish the big D tomorrow. We have a good grasp on fishing the daytime/evening. We were looking to stay out on the water and do some night trolling. I am not by any means asking for any specific spots but was wondering if anyone could help us with depths that typically work for trolling at night on Delavan. PM me if you feel like sharing any info. Thanks so much

I don't want to stir the pot but am just going to mention what I've seen in the last 10 years. Take it for what it's worth. I don't have a place on Delevan but do on another lake. This lake was sprayed for 7-8 years. Not just the shoreline but the main channels as well. Yes there were dead fish showing up after the spraying. The lake has not been sprayed at all for the last 5 years. Every year around this time we still have the same amount of dead fish after the spawn. Bass northerns crappie and gills. Lot of people questioned the spraying. I was one who loudly voiced my opinion against at assoc meetings. Fish die, there are lot of different variables. My opinion now is it's not because of the chemicals.

Took my boys out yesterday. Light winds made for a nice drift but couldn't get a bite. Threw all sorts of hard and plastics. After two hours, anchored on the weed line and dropped large shiners and suckers on slip bobbers. Hit 10 bass between 2 - 4.5lbs. Could have had more but ran out of bait. Only my second time on Delavan but starting to figure it out.
