Delavan 04/07

Two of the best lakes in southern Wisconsin. Only a short cast away from Chicago.

With the implementation of a bass catch and release season, and 4 consecutive days of 70+ early April weather, it was a perfect day to chase some early season bass on Delavan.

In typical early spring fashion the morning was very slow, but the afternoon/early evening bite was on fire. Besides a few jerkbait fish early it was all plastics in the warmest water we could find.

My 9 year old Maddy was my partner today and she did a great job sticking with things for several hours in the morning when things were slow. At the end it was just ridiculous action and clicker hit 55 for the day.

I could get used to this new bass season as I only saw a few other boats out for them.

Thanks guys. It was a rare opportunity to fish water that warm before the start of the regular season in May. I wish I could have fished yesterday or today too. I think the cooler temps coming up will push them back out again for awhile.
