Topwater, this year is about done for me, but if want to make it out next year, let me know. If you have a boat you can tag along or come out in mine. I am already counting down the days to opening weekend '06 :p

:D The boat is a 1989 Astro Quickfire. Its 18.5' w/ a 115 Merc. I bought it last December. I had been looking for a boat for years and the price was right for this one. It needs some electrical work for the accesories as well as a few minor touchups. This Spring I put a Minkotta 70 lb. thrust with co-pilot on it, but I would like to upgrade one of the fishfinders and add rod holders to it too. It kind of has a retro look to it, doesn't it :p

As far as a Delavan report goes, my buddy was up last week and caught a 28'' muskie in the launch channel on a Grim Reaper Spinnerbait. The rest of the day only produced a few pike follows. Reports are that the lake is turning over, which explains the hit and miss reports I have been reading. The overall cosensus has been that the bass and pike have been responding to bigger baits. Get out there while you can.

Your right Augy. I feel like I got my money out of it just from this year. After breaking my Non-Canada pike record over and over again at Delavan this year, I can say that it has been a blast. My plans were to fix a few things on it this winter, but I just bought a new house so that may have to be on hold. I will probably just winterize a few things and put the cover and tarp over it. Maybe next year :wink:
