Late Delavan Report 9/19/2015 - finally some fish

Postby ohoffm » Sep Tue 22, 2015 10:53 am

I have been chasing pike hard for the last month and half at Delavan and the results have not been great. I have not had a report in a while because I unfortunately have not had much to report on. Finally got a few to cooperate and as a bonus got a vacationing Floridian on the brag board with the biggest pike of year thus far.

Image
One of the smallest ones caught that day (24") and the sores that I have been concerned about seemed to be healing up on this guy

Image
Skinny but still fun to catch

Image
29 1/2 still had the open sores

Image
Even got a nice bass mixed in

New Brag Boarder at 34". I already talked to the beginner pike angler about the vertical hold on bigger fish and luckily the jaw was not dislocated.

Nice outing. Monster pike
I spent half my money on fishing, gambling, alcohol, women and billiards. The other half I wasted.

Great work Offman. Way to get the Floridian the big pike. Let's hope these snakes make a full recovery.
