Does the boat launch really need 4 attendants?!!! The least they could do is give you a ride back to the dock in the golf cart for $11.75 after they show you where to park! As if we can't figure this out for ourselves! What a joke! what happened to dropping an envelope in a locked box? Sure would bring the price down!

Numerous occasions Ive seen people keeping bass on delavan people dont know the size or possession limits or just dont care. Way too many people for the Dnr to watch

Some folks just don't think the rules apply to them. That is why I avoid Delavan and Geneva all together. Leave the Osteichthyes (bony fish) alone while they are pro-creating. In addition, I find it very frustrating when bass are being pulled off beds during bass tournaments. It being ok to pull pro-creating bass male or female off the nest and back to the pier for weigh in just because $ is involved? One cannot have it both ways. Geneva has old $ invested in beachfront community. I wonder how many of the out of state anglers live in the beachfront community? All one can do is educate anglers politely and/or call law enforcement.

Water Temp. 56 North 59 South. Caught 4 keeper Crappie & lost a couple at the boat. Caught 1 nice bass while fishing for Crappie, of course it went back. Now for my disgust of people following the rules. Seen quite a lot people targeting bass, walleye, northern. I even had a guy ask me what the size limit was for the walleye. I seen people even trolling today. People are so ingnorant of the rules. DNR needs to go out plain clothes & start writing these guy's citations. Game fish does not open till May 7th!!!!

I paid 11.75 yesterday for an 18 ft boat. Fished about 7 to 3 ft yesterday and boated 15 nice gills between me and my buddy. My grandpa got 2. First time on this lake. Fairly easy to fish if you find warm water and decent weeds on the bottom. Most gills were between 7.5 and 9.5 inches. Good luck

LandingMonster, there are no tournaments because of the 1 fish bag limit. Kind of hard to have a tourney when u can only possess 1 fish each. I fully support the regs though, has turned Delavan into a phenomenal bass lake in terms of sized quantity.

On Thursday when we were leaving I told Dumber that the fish would turn on at 6 right where we were. I got a report, they did. He went back there Friday afternoon and did real well. I don't see any reports the last 2 days. But from the reports I am getting, they are getting fish. I am looking for some one to go with Monday. Send me a message with a phone number, if your interested. I will be in and out all day. I am planting my potatoes today. Best of luck to all. Smile
