There are not that many people keeping bass over 18 inches they taste like crap

The bass and pike size and bag limits have kept overharvest from being an issue.  The 1 fish 18 inch size limit has been going for many years on Delavan.  I rarely have talked to anyone that even kept the 18 plus inchers they would catch.  I dont see how you can say overharvest when the 14-17.999 inch fish are not there like they used to be, those fish wouldnt have ever been legal to keep.  Let the weeds grow without any human intervention and Delly will be great again in a few years, keep killing those weeds and Ghost town for good bass and pike fishing will continue.  The gills and crappies will also go down hill in next year or two without predators to keep them in check.

I am fully aware of how many launches they have.  I am also aware that every day delavan has way more fishing pressure than geneva.  In the end it really doesn't matter to me.  Keep taking fish out of delevan and keep blaming the non fisherman 100%   pressure has just as much blame as chemicals.  Just saying.

Donk… they have like five public launches on Geneva… Get there on a weekend, and good luck parking in or near any of them.  Not that any of this has anything to do with anything.

Yep. I've been there parking in the back 40 before. It's almost as much of a joke as how many people don't really know the boating rules and regs.

It really is amazing.  Lake geneva is 3 times the size but they only allow about 20% of what delavan does as far as public boat launching space.  Obviously I am using somewhat of an educated guess but you get my point.

Donk, I had made a comment a while back about how the last time I fished there, you could walk from one side of the lake to the other without getting your feet wet. Moderators deleted it. Lol. Go figure, guess they don't like people speaking their mind. Lmao, joke I tell ya, joke.
