Silver Bay

2 posts in this topic

Just wondering if there is any fresh info on the area for fishing the big water from silver to the baptismor down.

Fished out of the Silver Bay landing the 22nd and 23rd. If you saw a 14' Deep V Alumacraft with a silver 20hp Honda battling the chop, that was me. Got four Lake Trout and six Pink Salmon and a few lost "mystery" fish, although I'm sure they were Pink Salmon. Used a downrigger and a Diamond King spoon with a stinger hook. All the salmon and two of the trout were nailed with the stinger. Short biters. Got the biggest trout 60' down over 357' of water. Marked smelt and got him. When I opened him up, it had 18 smelt in its stomach. The other trout were caught on the downrigger at 40' down over 57' of water and 25' down over 80' of water. The Pink Salmon were all 9-15" long but fought nicely. Caught them on the downrigger from 40' deep to 20' deep. Caught a couple casting over 20' deep water on the surface. Never fished out of there before. It was nice.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
