I'm going to fish in the morning. It'll be my first time on Delavan. Anyone willing to share a few pointers on where to fish for gills and crappies?

Got out after work yesterday and found some gills but all the little ones were to willing to bite so I moved around a bit freezing my butt off to try to find a crappie to save the trip and boom one 14in ?? I figured it a fluke and that it was to big so I put it back and said if there were anymore 12in and under I would start keeping them and so for the next hour I picked through the real big females and real little males tell I got my 6 that ranged 9-12in because that is all you need for a good fish fry

Good luck everyone these storms will make it hard for the next couple of days but after that it should be smooth sailing

First the report, then the yada yada. It was colder than my ex wives heart. Never got over 41. Most of the fish headed for deeper water. We had to scratch to each catch over a hundred a piece. On at 9, off at 1:30. Main lake 44. Best we could find was 49. Yes it made a difference. Fished one stretch at 48, ZIP. Moved a short ways to 49 and back in action. As always, jig plastic and a wax worm. Had to fish a little deeper, they were tight to the bottom. Had a few nice crappies, but gills were the most active. Had 40 in the box at one, but it was so cold we just took 10 out of the next 15 and ran for home. Jeff had a big day. He caught all the big ones and was way ahead of me. But the old PRO rallied to close the gap and save the day. This is the first time the WARDEN has ever let me switch 2 days in a week. It must mean her sister is coming to visit. 2 years ago after she left. I had to go out and buy an industrial toilet. I am not sure if its the greater strength or the larger capacity that is more important. If you can picture what JABA THE HUT from Star Wars sister would look like,you would be right on the money. She was going to call the building inspector to report me because the front step was too high and she could not get in the front door. She came in the side door. But she had to turn sideways and the WARDEN had to give her a push. If I am lucky, she will only break one chair before she leaves. Best of luck to all.

Find warm water. Nice gills can be had. Fished 5-7 pm with the dog. I caught all the good ones while he just watched. I was using a green/glow demon ice jig with red worm pieces.

On at 9, off at 2. We wanted to fish crappies today, but there was 15 guys in a small area where they were hitting. So we went off by our lonesome. Got a few crappies, but some nice gills were hitting. So we fished the gills. I got about 150 and Mr Clean got around 75. He got all the big ones. We saw some real nice crappies caught, but I guess no one wants you to know. Temperature in the main lake was 44. Best we could find was 53. Back at home the warden wanted to know what I was running the hair dryer on. I told her it was a Bimbo Skunk that I needed to repaint. I had never used one before, but everyone tells me how good they are. Pard I fished with last week threw one for an hour and never caught a fish. I did not like the jig head color, But it looked interesting. So I paid 2.69 plus tax and bought one. Painted it the color I wanted and reset the hook to the angle I prefer. I felt he fished it too deep and too fast. I rigged it up the way I felt it should be fished. I had a fish on every cast till the paint wore off. It also seemed to be getting gills of a little more size. Best of luck to all.

Reminds me of tournament bass on Geneva. But, I have seen bass and gills like that around the peninsula from shore anglers. Doesn't have to be in a boat (unless you saw them, I suppose). Or do you think anyone has sprayed weeds yet? That'll screw 'em up.

It was probably one of the non English speaking folks throwing spinners off the shore. There were 3 of them Friday fishing for gamefish and I advised them it was illegal. Got the good old no English routine quite commonly used. They had a bucket with fish flopping around in. I'm sure bass were in it but not positive. I called tip DNR hotline of course nobody showed as I went by a hour later they were still fishing.

THIS POST IS FOR NEWBIES ( AND STUPID PEOPLE) (When I came off the lake Thurs..I saw a @3# LMB right at the piers..1/2 floating/trying to right itself/swim...point is....this bass didn't just appear here....Someone obvivously brought it in in their livewell and released it. TO WHOM EVER DID THIS: This is Illegal....yes, it is inevitable that you will catch Bass while panfishing..and if you do Just release it immediately...IF YOU THINK it won't survive...does not matter. You cannot put a Gamefish in your boat for any reason until opening day..which is May 2nd. Closed season does NOT MEAN CATCH AND RELEASE!!!! The DNR can cite you for EVEN fishing with Tackle That does not appear to be Panfish Tackle i.e, ultralight/light rods; light line; small baits, etc. I hope this helps anyone that is not aware of the Laws/rules. ALSO...read the lake REGS at the piers....fish bag limits, etc. Please help US keep this lake the Gem that it is. Cool

Bass,walleye,muskie,northern pike season is closed until May 2nd. dnr.wi.gov is the website to answer all your questions...or get the regulation booklet when you buy your fishing license. Wink
