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!

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
