Was out last week on Lake Delavan. Had a great week fishing. Used a lot of Rippin raps and drop shot. Caught smallmouth, crappies, and bluegills primarily. With a few a smaller walleye. The gills came on the drop shot with either a red worm or crawler chunk. Call my largest gill. The one in the photo is just short of 10 inches. It was safely released into the water. Caught enough seven inch gills to keep for dinner.

Went Fishing with Hero Sunday like all the other times I had a GREAT time. If I filled my bathtub with water Hero would catch fish. That man got 25 to my one I think he can see the fish 10 ft down. At the end of the trip I was catching one to his one. So he changed his pole and got one every cast that man knows how to fish. Check out the photos he can catch fish smaller then his hook. Great time Hero Thanks

On at 7, off at 3. Pretty much the same as last report. More gills this time. But less crappies. Started off with some nice crappies, but died off by 8. Chased around the whole lake getting a few here and there. I felt so bad for THE WOP. He couldn't get a fish with a gill net. I said, lets bobber fish by the piers. You can always get a few that way. We started to get some gills and they were nice. Lots of little ones mixed in, but lots of fun. It was 1, time to quit. But he was getting fish, and happy. So we stayed till 3. Caught a hundred in that 2 hours. We had 30 to 35 in the live well. He did not want them. Me either. We asked some other fisherman if they wanted them. They all said no. So we put them back in the lake.Was a nice day. Best of luck to all.

Caught a ton of gills today on weedlines 12-18 ft of water. Dropshot with chunk of crawler while anchored caught most. Controlled drifting along weed edges with a small lindy rig located the schools. Ran out of crawlers and chunks of gulp crawlers wouldn't get touched. Good eats on the way though. Heavy permachop on the water by 1030 am due to the circus crowd. Get out early if you get seasick and don't have a bilge pump.
