Delavan's close to 2000 acres?!?

Hm...I'm already smarter today than I was yesterday and it's only 7:40.

I've only been there a few times and only on the ice. No need - I'm in central Waukesha county. Surrounded by lakes.

Delevan is more like 2000 acres cds. It sure doesn't seem that big though when you go out on it. It's true though, most of us don't mention good fishing on southern lakes. I will mention some of the Oneida county lakes I think are good, but NOT the SE Wi lakes!!!!!!! That's bad JuJu!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

Actually,J,there's a reason that the only lake mentioned that's under 1000 acres was Delavan. We've all learned the power of the internet to draw crowds.

We have 98 named lakes in Waukesha county alone.

If you're new to boating I'd stay off Pewaukee during nice weekends in summer.

Lower Nemahbin. Keesus. Fowler. Ashippun. Plenty of people consider those their "home waters" for fishing but you won't have a mini-cigaret boat cut across your bow.

I like them all, and most are different.

Delevan is great for certain species.

As is Pewaukee. As is Labelle. And so on.

There are quite the quality fisheries in southeastern Wisconsin. Sure they don't have the look or feel of a Vilas county lake, but the fishing is still quite good.

Other than the big pond it would be Geneva. I have had so many dynamite days on that lake, and some during the week when it was raining and no pleasure boaters. Giant gills, lots of quality smallmouth/largemouth, and rockies to keep you entertained on the slow days. I do not care for or target crappies, but occasionally catch one and it is always huge. Tounge Out

Pewaukee is up on my list. As well as Labelle. A few smaller lakes are on my list to. Some of my best numbers and size days for certain species were spent on my canoe...

Pewaukee and Geneva. They NEVER get so crowded that one more boat makes a difference.
