Got on lake at 5:30. Pitcher 1/16 oz jigs with half a crawler up shallow until 8:30. Switched to slip sinker sucker rigs at 8:30 for pike. Fished weed edges until 10:30. Didn't pick up a single fish. Wind was nasty and rain started to pick up so we got off the lake. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please PM me with and advise. Thanks guys.

On at 7, off at 1. The WOP again dragged me kicking and screaming to fish here. He knows my rule. As long as some one else is paying for the gas, I will fish any where. Size was down a little today. Same places as last trip. Under the docks and boats. Ice jigs, plastic and a waxworm. Fished 18 to 36 inches deep. In 4 to 6 feet of water. Put a hundred fish in the boat. Which is slow for us. 5 Bass, no real size. Wanted to try to fish deep. But even with 2 anchors down, we could not hold. Kept enough for a meal. I caught the most, but the WOP got all the big ones. Almost forgot, picked up some nice crappies, mixed in with the gills. Best of luck to all. P.S. taking the WARDEN to the movies tonight. It's her birthday. I don't mine being seen with her, in dark places.

Fished Delavan for a few hours this morning before the wind kicked up from the South. Found some decent Gills in 10-12' near the edge of the weeds. Dick Smith's Panfish grub (white) tipped with a waxworm or giant redworm under a slip float worked the best. We took home enough for a meal, threw back the rest. Threw some top water baits at 1st light and caught 1 small pike.

Went out a little late in the morning today, targeting Northern Pike today. Only caught a few, but the ones we did get were decent ones. Talked to several other boats who were targeting Bluegills and they all said it was tough going. Excellent weather today hardly any boats out. Might be it for me this year out here, we will see.. but been a good summer for me . I may see if there is a nice day in Rocktober and try to find those slabasouras largemouth feeding up for winter.

My wife has surprised with a three day trip to Delavan/Lake Geneva area for our anniversary starting tomorrow. I am taking the boat to fish Delavan and I am seeking a bit of advise. I have only fish big D in the spring and early summer and never this late in the year. I am going to throw artificial lures for LM and pike. I was hoping for some friendly advise on what is currently working and general area(s) of the lake which are producing. I do not expect anybody's secret hole. Please feel free to PM with any tips.

Thanks

Been doing some good ole fashioned bobber fishing off the dock today because I just felt like being super lazy, having a few teddy brewskis, and fishing. Beautiful day and the bass are hitting the large crawlers. Landed 5 LMB but no pigs yet. AS for the crappie, though I do like them better than gillz, I just don't see any reason why I'd target them when there is an abundance of real game fish in this body o water. Seriously, smallmouth are the best, I think the DNR should just stock a ton of smallmouth, that'd be so good. All right, only 10:15 but already lunch time for me. Cooking up some tripe actually. Love that stuff. Gonna fish more after lunch. Anyway, bent rods to all!

RG, I did well on them out in that same deep water last year, and have not connected after a couple tries this year. It always changes, but for me, this has been a tough year for finding crappie... a fist on this lake.

I'm expecting one great fall bite. Pike have been awesome, bass have been spotty so far but it's a matter of time. If you want smallmouths I'd go to lake Geneva. Way more population and reports for them have been it's going to come on strong here in a week or 2. Boated another Lake D hog yesterday. Tight lines!

Lil John, those are some nice looking horses, well played sir. Speaking of the fall bite, usually I migrate south to fish during the fall until hard water season commences, but this year I'm thinknig about sticking around. What can I look forward to with the fall bite? Does the smallmouth action pickup? Man I love smallmouth. Also, I know this is not fishing related, but I was wondering what you guys think is the best za in this area? Also, anybody know of any good gyro places?

Was a crazy weekend. Got on pike Saturday and had a hayday. Boated around 30. Caught 3 monsters!! Today was a lot slower but still caught fish. Water temp was 72 today. Water clarity is fine. Can see 6-8ft down. Tight lines y'all. Fall bite is right around the corner.
