We gave Delavan one final try before she froze up. There had been reports of some shallow eyes, so we tried a few of my best spots for an hour or so before sunrise. We each had a couple nips on jerkbaits, my partner finally landing one just as the sun came up (I will post the pic in a bit). We then tried for pike before the big front came through. In about 3 or 4 hours we caught 4 pike along with a few lost fish and follows. All snakes, with the biggest being b/w 26-28''. Still a good way to end the season. When the front came through it changed the winds from the South to North and dipped temps about 15 degrees in the matter of minutes :shock:

They were fishing the channel by the boat launch, which is only 3-5 feet deep throughout. Like Doc said though, the water that is left is not looking too good. Traditionally Delavan is a great panfish and pike lake for the ice fisherman.
