    Steve Suman   This week looks to be the best of the year so far this spring, with the exception of “chances” of showers later in the week. Otherwise, clear skies, cool nights, and warm, sunny days. Nothing more to say, other than get out now and enjoy this long-awaited break in the weather!   “Cold temperatures, wind...

    Delavan Lake fishing has had some ups and downs, one day fishing is fantastic and the next it can be a struggle.  With the warmer waters, the summer time bite is almost in full effect.  As of Friday 6/2, a lot of the green slimy moss has come off the bottom and is making fishing tough.  The fish are biting but it’s hard to get ...

    With the warmer weather, the fishing action has been picking up every day.  The smallmouth bass are still spawning and the lake is still about one week behind it’s normal pattern for early June. Smallmouth bass are still off the bite because they are actively spawning.  Last week I caught just a few post spawn fish.  The best ...

    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 time of year, Lake Geneva is historically a great place for fishing however, due to the cooler temps and frequent rains, the water temp is lower and the lake is about two weeks behind schedule.  There are fish to be caught but the overall numbers are down. Largemouth bass fishing has been the best in Abbey Harbor or in Geneva Bay by the ...

    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...

    Cold, wind, rain and lightning storms created havoc to anglers up this week trying to get in a little time on the water. The effects of these weather systems threw fish off also.

    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 ...
