Anyone know of a possible access point on Upper Cullen?

Upper Cullen Resort has blocked their access off. The only other thing i can see to get on is the channel or culvert near the public access of middle. kindof flerting with disaster for driving the trucks out.

any info would be greatly appreciated.

As far as I know you that is the only access to upper cullen. So you are limited to a wheeler, snowmobile or hoofin it.

sylvan is a great lake ! but it does have a small limit as well . 5 fish per person , the best bite is just ast sun set and an hour or so after . this might help you ? djwood

I find it funny that people see small limits as a negative. I would think that everyone would be be in favor of improving a lake instead of encouraging it's demise.

Just wait until they close crappies and sun fish during their spawn season, Its bound to happen, AND I will be ok with that.

I think they should lower crappies and sun fish to 5 each and walleys to 3 each.

? hummmmmm ? is 5 being negative? more like being realistic! when you pay 310 a gal. for gas and drive 60 miles round trip for 5 fish and 1 fisherman ! now this is reality of common sense. djwood

Well when the richy richies build their big cabin homes, on the lakes and have there lawn as green as their money. All that fertilizer runs in the lakes, and they get by with cutting up all the trees along the shore because what’s a little slap on the wrist from the dnr. Then they drive around with their but boats cutting weeds and digging up channels.

That is more realistic. If you kill the lakes fish will follow.

p.s you don’t have to drive, figure out your local lakes. Or did you already destroy them?

another good thing about only having a 5 fish limit is, most people don't fish that lake, So usally the fish are that of good quality. I know sylvan has nice fish. I wish they would do the same thing to the river, Look at rice lake. Its like how many houses can you put in one little area.

back up tip: if you can find mousie's they are doing the best.

We are blessed to live in MN. Do you really have to drive 60 Miles to find some good fishing? Sometimes the best fishing is in your own backyard, you just don't know it. Get some guts and strike out on a local lake and give the better known lakes a rest. I'll bet you can find a lake without spending more than $10 on gas.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.

      6/22/18     West Metro Water temp is in the 70's and sunfish are up on the beds. Look for harder bottom areas inside of or adjacent to softer bottom with weeds. The smaller females will be staging over the weeds--you may see them boiling--and the big bulls will be guarding the nests (beds) on the firmer bottom. Got my son and Dad out to catch a bunch this morning.  Ultralight 7' spinning rods/reels with four pound test Berkley Nanofil works great to cast to these bedding fish from a distance and get a good hook set. We use a 1/16 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig tipped with a 1" to 1.5" soft plastic (minnow, grub, tube, etc.) under a slip float to adjust for beds at different depths. Usually you will be targeting 2-8 feet of water, depending on water clarity. Take care not to keep everything you catch. It is fine to keep a fresh meal once in a while--sunfish is awfully tasty--but put plenty of fish, including the biggest bulls, back. Needed to keep the natural cycle of reproduction going. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Fished the lake this morning ,,, water temps were 72-74 and the flys were hatching ,,, unhooking the walleyes they were coughing up fly larvae,,, Need to power wash the boat now ,,, No keepers today but lots of overs and 2 unders mixed in with some pike and sunnies on flicker minnows ,,, Go figure

      Thanks everyone for the feedback. I was beginning to think I lost my touch. Took a beating this winter, but hopefully it will come back again. Also would like to see some more restrictions on the crappies. Time to start checking the deeper weed beds I guess. I know the water temps have been fluctuating a lot this spring and maybe they skipped the spawn. 
    • Borch
      Crappies have been hard for me to pin down on other waters as well.  Seems they are not were they usually are and I wonder if the weird winter to summer transition is to blame.  Time to start looking in other parts of the water column.

      There is a fishing dock north of the Sorlie Bridge on the ND side or from the shore, downstream of the dam by the walking bridge on the north side of town on the ND side or on the MN side, at the mouth of the Red Lake River just SW of Cabelas are all pretty good options.
