Taking daughter out tomorrow afternoon in new boat (no temp gauge).  Have read many of the previous posts. Starting to learn the lake.  Any other suggestions appreciated.  Tks, Sully

Monday evening trip with Bill ended up with 17 gills over 8". Tuesday evening trip with Fred 19 over 8". Thursday evening trip with Matt 35 over 8" again. I've been very selective, still fishing shallow; the pics don't do the fish any justice. Be safe this week end. Doug

Went out late today, after the rain. Tried to get back in my spot from Tuesday but way to windy. Ended up finding another hot spot down on the same side. Caught quite a few nice size largemouth with the biggest at 19". Also caught a few northern pike . Not very crowded this week, hardly anyone parked on the lawn, matter of fact I was first one there on tuesday... Front row parking.

If you don't mind me asking where did you catch those crappies at night? Just trying to find information because I'll be fishing tonight to find some also. Thanks

On at 9, off at 4. WAY TOO HOT FOR THIS OLD DOG. Lots of fish. Gills to 9, sun fish to 9 and crappies to 13. I was surprised to catch crappies in the main lake today. Even more surprised to catch them at 2 and 3 in the afternoon in 7 to 10 feet of water. Caught bass every where, a lot of big ones. Water is hot on the surface, but still cool down below that these fish are staying shallow. All you have to do is move slow with good sun glasses till you see a bunch and then put some bait on them. We caught most of them by the white pier on the West side. To the people who have put in the time to learn the lake. We caught them by the sunken boat. Best of luck to all.

Hey guys,


has as anyone else been concerned with the number of carp swimming around? Saw large schools of 10 or more in many spots...

Went out at first light, first few spots only caught a few. I moved to other side of the lake, and found a spot with the fish loaded up. Smallmouth, largemouth, and northern pike. One certain area it was catch one, release it, throw back in there and bam another species. What a blast while it lasted, then the wind made it to hard to stay on this spot.

On at 8:30, off at 3. Had fresh meat in the boat today. Nice young guy, eager to learn. I let him suffer the first hour. Then I gave him one of my rods. He was like a kid in a candy shop. After he had enough for a meal. I said, now I will show you the lake. I want you to have some places to fish as the weather warms up. They wont be shallow for long. There were fish every where we went around the lake. To my surprise, we even caught a few in the main lake. You had to be in the shallow bays, nooks and crannies. We went back to where we started and did real well. He had never caught bluegills that big before. If it was his boat, he would still be out there. He was amazed that moving the boat as little as 50 feet made all the difference in the world. The crossed T 2 wax worms on a plain short number 8 hook was the killer today. All fish caught in 5 feet or less today. Best of luck to all.

Hitting delavan tonight for some night walleyes. Never fished for walleye at night. I'm very familiar with the lake but any tips would be helpful.
