    Delavan Lake has been up and down with the weather.  Some days  the fishing is better than other but we still don’t have a consistent pattern.  With the heavy winds and significant days of rain, its been a little tough to even get out to fish and then the wind can prevent you from fishing the choice spots. The largemouth bass ...

    This spring has been crazy with up and down temps, a lot of rain and excessive wind.  The fish has been tough to pattern and the bite is inconsistent.  If the weather stabilizes, we should start to see some improvement as they move into their normal spring patterns. Early in the week, the water temperature was 10 degrees warmer than it i...

    With the up and down weather patterns of last week, fishing has been rather inconsistent.  Some days the fish are biting in 4-5 ft of water and other days they can be up to 20 ft deep.  If we get some consistent weather, we’ll start to see the fish in their normal spring patterns. Largemouth bass fishing has been average overall.&n...

    I felt a light bump, then nothing. I set the hook anyway and a fish shoot off. I quickly turned the fish and a moment later it was splashing next the boat. It was my first largemouth bass of the 2017 fishing season. I looked at my watch and we had been on the lake about fifteen minutes. It was a good way to start the season.I held the fish up with ...
