You are way off,my friend .I knew it was a Holiday weekend and any lake is a tourist attraction during a Holiday . What I expected was above normal traffic,but what I expect most is common courtesy and boater safety ! Especially during busy periods of the year. The DNR and the Sheriffs boat patrol is a JOKE! It will be a death that will get their attention and that is very unfortunate.. As far as names I call a spade a spade,they are just plain stupid and we all know we can't fix stupid..Have a great day ! Wink

lake delavan is long and very narrow, more boats than lake, never going to change, there is days you can walk across the boats, there is so many, you can sit here and call people names, but your the dumb one trying to fish on a tourist lake, on a holiday weekend, what did you expect,really......on a positive note, tourist season is just about over, will see a steady decline this month, and the fishing will improve.. good luck and tight lines

i`m sharing this kind of behavior on Geneva, contacted the water patrol, and recieved a very generic reply that they appreciated my concerns. we had power boats causing large wakes 20-30 feet from us as we trolled, power boats running wide open with no lights, at midnight, and where are they then? well i`m waiting for some fatalities, but even then with the attitude they have it will not matter. i guess all that can be done is watch your own ace, and jump!

Mini-mite I share your frustration. I have also encountered the same type of behavior on this lake. It is a wonderful lake but at that dangerous. Last week I had a jet boat buzzing me while fishing and up to 30'. That's how close he was. He knew I was pissed, as I tried to wave him off and he would continue to circle us and at one point circles out and came straight at me and with a smile. Also had a high powered boat with kids in it that pulled tubers close enough to throw a wake into the boat. And this all happened on a week day (wed) of last week. The law is not enforced on this body of water what-so-ever. There is a major incident waiting to happen, then it will be looked at. Good luck with the sheriffs dept as I called the sherrifs department, but they did not show any interest. They told me to contact the DNR and they the DNR told me they would record the complaint. LOL!

Fishing kind of sucked today. I want to point out that this will be the last freaking time I ever fish this lake ! I know it was a Holiday weekend BUT ! The boaters ,pleasure and ,fisherman are all a bunch of morons ,or should I say some of the fisherman are. I have never in my life of fishing 40yrs have encountered so many idiots ! NO courtesy or sportsmanship. 30 ft from your boat barging half planed out or flying like they are on fire. My question is where the hell is the law ? Is anyone aware of boating regulations ? For example: dragging meat 50yds from shore and on a good piece of structure and an a-hle goes between you and the shore ,cuts in front of you and drops his anchor ! I know it happens to most of us but we have to put a stop to this crap.. I will be hounding the Walworth Cnty Sheriff's Dept and the DNR to make themselves present to put an end this pre-school playground.Have a nice weekend ! Puke Puke Puke Puke Puke Puke

Hi All:

No fishing this last weekend - but now for next weekend. We are going out on Saturday morning. A couple of questions. (1) I have a top-water frog. Great bait in the South. Has anyone used this on Lake D lately and what was your outcome? ( See Picture) - This is a new one - Old one is all chewed up.

(2) For the last few trips, we have used the large suckers and a bobber. We caught several LMBs, several Pike, and a few SMBs. Will the next size down work just as well or will I just catch smaller fish?

Been fishing within 10 feet of shore - near and under docks.

Finally -saw a comment earlier about 'near the island'. Not familiar with the 'island'. Can anyone give me some directions. We will be launching from Community Park.

Thanks Everyone Mike
