Great post Svitreum! Good to see that someone else gets it. The WDNR and the WDNR alone controls who is allowed to dump poison into the lake! The lack of adequate cover will undoubtedly severely harm the fishery. I would like to hear Heidi Bunk or Sunshine(with his "facts") or Lakeboy or Cathy Stepp dispute that. I get a kick out the "invasive species" excuse used to indiscriminately eradicate all species.

To those who seem to think in the perpetual "here and now" in regards to weeds I assure you that with the "eradication" of the weed beds there will assuredly be a change in the ecology of this lake. Anyone who thinks otherwise is either insane or completely unaware of the fact that these weeds are absolutely necessary to provide cover for predator/prey, not to mention the invertebrates that many fish species feed on. You may catch fish now, but this will change quickly if this pattern (of weed control?) continues! I leave it to you gentlemen to decide for yourselves.

there is a thread under the general fishing discussion called delavan lake and weed control, there is some info there as well, not at all saying you cant discuss it here, just a fyi

hit the water at 5:30 a.m.fished the rock bars, caught bass in 7 to 10 feet, fire tiger shad raps, produced a few, switched over for pike, biggest was a male at 34 inches, many hammer handles caught today, very active bite, used a silver minnow spoon with a frog porker,this gives me the weight for casting long and quick sinking ability, did not go for pannies, but my bro did gotem in 25 feet, suspended at 17, using baby leeches, also picked up a couple perch while drifting, around 40ft, good luck and tight lines, swamper...

Do you really think less weeds in the lake is going to affect the fish population? The fish just change locations. Fishing has been great. The weeds were killed off last year on the lake I fish and fishing was spectacular. Spend your time doing research about nothing you can control or go fishing. I get a kick out of reaching this thread!

Not trying to get into a fight with anyone and I'm not attempting to take sides. What I am attempting is keeping things factual. Again my opinions are from all my reading. Spent hours looking at as much of the material as possible. I believe the WDNR is monitoring the weed cutting and use of weed poison. No one ever said that the weed removal was good for fish. BUT the DNR has been doing fish studies and have found no negative effects. A little different than you comment Mike. Truth of the matter, the lake does contain several exotic weeds. Your concerns really need to be directed to the DLSD. The board consists of regular folk like you and me.

Top shelf, the poisoning of Delavan is being done for "navigation"(laughable) and for "swimming". Not sure how dumping poisonous herbicide could benefit swimming. And as far as I can tell there is no swimming done anywhere other than the main lake which has "only 2.4 acres treated". Someone needs to explain to me how you can contain a poison dump to channels and 2.4 acres of main lake. The "facts" apparently state that eradicating weeds with poison is good for fish. I AM buying it! Please poison the weeds out of all lakes since it is so beneficial. Politics at it's best! Puke I would like to thank Lake-Link for giving the fishermen who feed these fish to there families a forum to speak their minds. Since many of my posts have been deleted, I assume that there is quite a bit of political pressure on the Lake-Link people.

It will be better than the weekends. Friday is normally the busiest of the week days,but still not bad. You will see traffic pick up in the afternoon as weekenders begin to arrive.

Good luck

I would like to make a return to Delevan this Friday. Hoping that with it being Friday and schools returning, that the boat traffic and idiots will be less...Can anyone tell me if weekdays are better than the weekends or is it always filled with rude joy riders?

I like the conversation here where it is most applicable. If you only want to see fishing reports, select that in your setup.
