Lake Sylvia?

Recommended Posts

mike morris

Any Lake Sylvia fishermen in here? What's the ice like, and how have they been biting this year? I live right by the darn lake, but I don't even get out and fish it.

I went out to try the north bay tonight... No fish, but I did learn that the ice conditions are safe there.

I'd like to find walleyes on one of the Sylvia lakes.. Anyone who could let me in on a few spots?

Drop me an e-mail if you'd like... mike_dogg412@hotmail.com

Moving closer to those lakes doesn't sound like to bad of idea in my book!

Did you live on 6 towards Cedar Lake, or on the other side of 55?

I grew up south of 55 right across from Swartwatts Lake, or Swartout Lake. My parents still live there.

I grew up on Sylvia, but haven't been out there this year. The north bay is not a bad spot.

The north bay can be really good in the spring for spawing pannies and even sometimes during the summer time. I know some guys that fished early ice this year. Only got two eyes in many trips. 18+24.

There is much more to Sylvia then you know, you have to learn the lake. Look at the structure on the lake. Nice fish come from this lake, but you have to put some time in out there. Fish any bar on the lake/s/ move around, you'll find'em.

Wondering the same thing, was out there 4-5 years ago and got a few. Are people driving thru the narrows fron twin to get one there or going thru a private access? Is the ice safe all over on Twin and Sylvia? Was thinking about going out there on Sat.

I used to fish pike out there a lot. You can catch unlimited numbers of hammer handles on sucker minnow. I've caught larger pike, but you have to go though a lot of smaller ones to catch a decent one. Spearing is a good option.

As for driving through the channel...I wouldn't, but I don't reccomend driving on Sylvia.

I fish lake sylvia everyday from ice on till ice off. I have been driving through the channel for a month. There is no moving water through the channel, so it is probably the safest ice on the lake. There is a pressure ridge on the west end of the narrows on the north shore though. Just stay to the south on the west end and you will be fine.

I caught two 24 inchers the other day... But yet I haven't caught a thing since. I cannot find any consistency on that lake!

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
