Sylvan is a decent Crappie lake. It has a special regulated limit of 5 Crappies daily per person. Look in the channel between the two lakes for panfish and the upper lake for walleyes. Small northerns are plentiful in both lakes but there are larger ones as I personally caught a 13 pounder a couple years ago. Walleyes sometimes hang out on the sunken rock pile on the upper lake but you need to fish after dark as the lake is very clear. Too much boat traffic in the summer on weekends to fish during the day anyways. Hope this helps and good luck.

Also has a very good LMB population with VERY good size - pulled a 6.5 out of there the year before on upper end.

      I took my kids for a monticello outing yesterday, but my boy spiked a fever on the way so I had to abort mission.  Tried a little shorefishing at home this afternoon in Brooklyn Park. I tried spoons, jerkbaits and ringworms. No action.

      Heading to Grand rapids on Wed. Any chance a guy can drive back in the woods with a car??

      Palmer lake is good for sunfish (and it's kind of a pond), but it's been getting hammered this winter. I'm worried about the pressure it's been getting. I wouldn't mention it here, but word is clearly out already. There are a lot of great options to try around Eagan. That's where I do most of my pond fishing.  I live in Brooklyn Park now and have had a tough time finding good fishing in ponds/little lakes up this way. Might have to give the clay hole a try
