The below data is only for fish caught by Reid and does not include fish caught by others with him

2009 Summary Comment:  The creel results for year 2009 to date were both good and bad compared to the previous two years.  They were bad since fewer fish were caught but good since larger fish were caught.  Therefore if your interested in catching numbers of fish it was only a fair year , but if you want bigger fish it was a good year.

2010 Summary Comment:  The creel results for year 2010 were not typical.  All and all fish averages were OK but I was only on the water about 1/3rd of my typical year.

June 25, 2011 Year to Date Comment:  Except for two days, the first 12 days of Spring were very good.  I fished Delevan 5 times in May and got 11 fish over 17".  I fished Geneva on June 22nd with Spense Petros (Hall of Fame Fisherman) and did very good (combined 35 Bass, most 16+" with largest 18").   I fished Lake Geneva by myself on July 12, 14 & 19th during difficult clear sky and hot weather conditions.  About 75% of fish were caught in 11ft to14 ft of water with drop shot rig.  Remainder of fish caught primarily with wacky rig in 4-7ft of water (one caught with sneaky rig).       

May 2012 comment: Went fishing for largemouth on Lake Delavan with my buddy Jim Barrett on May 14th.  Jim got a four and five pounder back to back ... great fish and a darn good fisherman.

*2 Approximately 13 Bass were caught on Delevan Lake on May 5, 2010.   Since the fish were not measured and recorded, these fish have been omitted

     from the 2010 totals 

*3 For 2007 fish included in count were 10" and over.  All other years included fish 12" and over.

*4 A record of weather conditions and water temperature for each day fished is kept but not included in this web site. 

*5 A largemouth bass 17" long weights 2.5 to 3 Lbs.

*6 Hooker Lake Oct 20, 2009

*7  I fished Delavan lake 40% of local lake fishing days which is much more than usual.   By far I catch more larger fish on Delevan than any other local lake.
