Sunshine 2, they are ripping the weeds out with weed machines, and also spraying them, started last year. Home owners and skiers and jet skiers and tubers and sail boats do not want any weeds. And as far as being rude, these people that act like wahoos dont give a rats ass about fishing boats . I was flipping docks yesterday and almost fell out of my boat because the waves were so bad. Very hard to fish this lake in the summer. Fishermen are not a priorty for Delavan town board.

Hit Delavan for first time this year. Been reading all the posts about poor boat etiquette. Boy are you guys right! Really folks? Run your pontoon boat or speed boat between me and shore when you can see that we are casting towards weedline. How rude! Own a big ranger and one speed boat put about 50 gallons of water into back of my boat from their wake. I'm sure the guy knew full well what he was doing. Not to mention the skiers and personal water crafts that were still on the water after posted hours.

Was also surprised by the lack of weeds compared to other years. Are they spraying or is it just from the late spring?

The whole experience put a sour taste in my mouth. Had two young men in the boat and they were shocked and even a little scared. Very sad.

Hey guys, I like to post some of my favorite pics from the week when I can. Fishing continues to be very good out here. The bass are anywhere from the deep weeds to the edges on plastics. I prefer the gulp worms but many others will work as well. Texas rigs have been my top producer along with whacky style. Pike on suckered and some cranks are good. Here is a great pic of a 6 year old with his first pike at 34". This is truly what it's all about.

Pinboy... just go to the launch on Hwy 50...... it is only a couple miles at most, and the other really isn't an option.

Nice report HERO. My son and I also planned a day off and went fishing on 7/15.2014 from 10:00 to 2:00. Worst day ever but as they say, it's still better than working. We fought the wind looking for some bluegills but only caught one. Had lunch at Lake Lawn Lodge and went out for another hour, nothing. Oh well, we still had fun. Cool

58 degrees, wind pounding and cold front moving through. And I go fishing. The last time I did some thing that dumb was when I bet 500 dollars on the Wicked Witch of the West to win the wet T-shirt contest. On at 7, off at 2. Early they were biting a little. But as the day went on, it was less and less. No pattern today. We caught fish at all depths. But, no size. Kept a few gills and crappies. Put 4 pike and a few bass in the boat. The smaller pike were real active today. They were taking 1 inch minnows and my half a crawler. Now the blab, blab,blab. I was asked what I use for mosquito spray. I use Listerine Cool Mint mouth wash. I use it in my garden when picking raspberries and green beans. I put it into a spray bottle. I spray me and the area I am working in. Every once in awhile I spray some more. Mosquitos are very weak flyers. Years ago when I still fished at night. I Had a small fan hooked up to my 12 volt battery. It blew 99% of them away from me. In the house, instead of hitting them with a swatter. I give them one blast from my Windex Bottle. Knocks them right out of the air. 2 blasts will knock a fly down. No mess to clean off the walls or ceiling that way. Best of luck to all.

It's not just Ill boater I have had Plenty of Wi people do it to old and young. It sucks because I live across the street from one of the best lake in southern Wi And get ticked of every time I go fishing because people are rude and have no manners or commonsense . At least you guys feel my pain . I was beginning to think it was just me . Commonsense isn't so common anymore ! Thank guys be safe and tight lines to every one on here . Smile
