On at 9, off at 3:30. Dumb and Dumber ride again. Started off slow, then got rained on. No, they did not bite better in the rain. We only fish for pan fish. So it is only fitting we catch 6 bass before we get our first gill. We got walleyes, pike, crappies, perch, gills and at least 40 bass with out a keeper. As always, I found the fish and Dumber caught most of them. I caught a nice 16 inch walleye and Dumber says, that is best size to eat. I said they have to be 18 inches. He comes out with one of them Coleman single burner white gas stoves from 1950. Brings out a fry pan and says, we can have shore lunch right here in the boat. No one will ever know. I said, wait a minute. We need one more stove and a fry pan for the potatoes. While he was thinking that over. I slipped that fish back over the side of the boat. He is a nice boy. But at least 2 french fries short of a happy meal. Yesterday the fish were on the out side of the weed line. Today our best action was on the inside of the weed line in 5 to 6 feet of water. We also did well in 9 feet of water. Every day is the same, it's different. You got to keep moving and changing colors. Today, colors we could not catch a fish on in the morning. We killed them with in the after noon. Only 10 cars in the lot, last 3 times out. A lot of good fishing, but you got find them. Come on out and get your share. Best of luck to all.

Big blue, go into menu on lake link, under fishing reports there is a link called lakes, type in delavan,  that will give you all public access for Delavan or any other lake for that matter.

Looks like Gillespie had no problem catching fish out here....everyone will be out now. The fish are here, you just have to fish harder and smarter. It's why it's called fishing not catching.

Launched at 5.30 off at 8.30 tonight. Still feel like I can't hardly catch a cold on this lake. Dragged crawlers, threw senkos, cranks, etc.

Caught 4 of my 5 fish from 8 to 8.30 on crankbaits-- two dink pike, one dink LM, one dink walleye. Lot of bluegills harassing my crawler rig.

Fished today with the kids. Found gills everywhere we tried mostly small ones by the docks. Moved out to deeper water 16-18 ft outside of the weeds caught 21 gills between 8 and 10 inches and a 12 inch perch inbetween 10 and 11:30 then they shut off. Kids had fun caught about 100 fish all together no bass today which is weird i normally catch 3 to 4 while pan fishing

Usually don't post much but here goes. Fished Sunday 4am -10am. Tough going first 3 hours then finally found some nice gills last hour and a half. Had no problem getting 40 gills over 8" between 3 guys.  Went out today 6:30-9:30am caught bunch of gills over 8". As for the whole weed issue...we fished drop shot and or slip bobbers. There are weeds, there are fish...gills and some perch. Every year same thing. To many weeds, not enough weeds, spraying for weeds...whatever. Been this way for 30 yrs get over it or go fish some other lake. If you read the posts carefully same people always catching fish....hmmmmm?

That's right AFM,  and the few weeds that are left are chopped up by the big boats from Illinois who can afford the extra dollar they are charging to launch!

report: fished Friday and Saturday eve along the weed line. Night crawler and split shot. A few nice gills, 3 undersized eyes, pesky perch, tiny smallmouth and very nice largemouth. LM must not taste good. They have been keeper sized but thrown back. Way to go cheese heads!

was in a good crappie spot. None spotted

big jim there can not be any weeds, they have poisoned the lake and killed all the weeds, so all the fish have to go deep. so there can not be any fish near shore to catch anymore, dam the D.N.R. please read a few pages back.
