Sylvia (old Twin & Sylvia) Bass

4 posts in this topic

My cousin is coming the first weekend in June and wants to go bass fishing. Just curious if the bass are found along the deep weed edges, docks or are up shallow this time of year? I'm not much of a bass fisherman although my username says basscatcher (it's just a cb handle my grandpa gave me years ago for catching smallies on Rainy Lake).

At any rate, any suggestions on what type of structure and depth to hit and what type of lures to use would be greatly appreciated.

A friend of mine had a place, out there if you go like you are driving on to the lake from the access, take a left in to that little hole,channel. There is a big brown house(tall)and a deck, with all fenced(chainlink)in yard the boat in there at that time of year, my G--, you could not even sit on the dock or try to shore fish or they would have hooked you. I dont know why they didn't park and ask to use her dock, has you could walk from the boat to the dock with out missing a beat. Some of the bass were really nice, most everything i seen caught was C&R. Good luck.Lynn

my grandmother had a cabin on that lake i spent almost every summer there till i was 14yo i do try to fish there as often as time permits the one thing i can tell you is be prepared for CLEAR water the lake is clean clean clean

for the most part spring fed

i was out there this past ice season about 4 weeks before ice out and it is remarkable the clairity like looking thru a clean window

i had the camera down and you could see for a long ways out

good luck fishing there and please check your trailer before putting in for any weeds or debries

I hear ya. That is a pristine lake with very clear/clean water. It's one of my more favorite sunfish lakes. I always check my rig for weeds when I pull out of the water, no matter what lake it is. It's also good to take the rig in for a quick wash when getting back to town too because you can't always see all the small weeds on your rig.

Thanks for the info. Wherever we fish for bass, it will be C&R only. I like Sylvia because not only does it have bass, but as I mentioned above, it has some nice sunnies in it too. Can go out and catch bass, then get some sunnies to take home for a meal.

Thanks for the replies!

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
