Svirt,  I have no clue how you couldn’t find bedded gills on delevan.  I found literally thousands of beds last week when I was there.  Fished mon-wed and by Wednesday there were so many it was ridiculous. All the beds were in 5-7 fow in case you were curios.  I wount divulge were on the lake however.

I just couldn’t be happier that the bed fisherman can’t pillage the gills this year!

The bluegill spawn may have been screwed by the hot dry weather. I fish Delavan, and spent 2 hours combing the North Shore looking for bedded gills. I found 4 in 2 miles of searching (not kidding guys). Gills spawn several times if conditions permit, so hopefully they will get that chance later this Summer.

Fished Monday late afternoon and well after dark.  Nice variety of fish.  Gills, crappie, rock bass, smallmouth, largemouth and walleye.  No legal size game fish as they were biting on panfish presentations. 

 Caught a white bass last week which is a rare catch for me from shore on Monona.  

Water still very clear for this time of year.  Makes for tougher fishing.  Need some rain.

Good luck out there.  Rat.

I think the warmer water temps and the winds will force the Gills into deeper waters to spawn.  Seen evidence of it last year on Kegonsa as someone posted pictures of beds in 12-15 feet of water!  And because of Covid and baby boomers retiring they have seen heavy pressure fishing the last few years!  Just my 2 Cents!

I feel it has to do with the water heating up to 80 in early June and lack of rain

What's going on with the Bluegill spawn this year? About 2 weeks ago I caught and released about 25 fish on the south shoreline. 2 days later that area was covered with algae and unfishable. In the following days I looked at many of the traditional spawning spots on the south, east and north shorelines and found no beds, or beds with no fish. There should be thousands of bluegills on beds all around the lake this time or year. I'm baffled. Anyone have any opinions?

Was out Friday morning before the worst of the heat wave hit. Ended up with 15 largemouth and one dink smallmouth in 4.5 hours. Fished bridges and docks with senkos.

Went out for a joyride today but brought the fishing gear. When I saw 82-84F water temp everywhere I went, I put it away. Hopefully there is not a major fish kill this year.

If the wind is calm it's every where. The dirty water will be on the wind blown side.
