Northerns are in there, but it is mainly a bass and panfish lake. You can get some nice largemouths in that lake though! You do know though that it is strictly catch and release for ANYTHING besides panfish correct? I have seen some decent Northerns caught there though and that was right off the fishing dock with sucker and bobber or right off the bottom with a sucker. My cousin even caught a musky from that lake. Walleyes?? try a different lake - they are there but very view!

GL - let me know how you do if you decide to go!!

Thanks for the advice. I went yesterday for a little while and caught some bass. One guy I talked to at the boat landing caught a 6 pounder!!! We were both just bobber fishing with minnows. Diddn't do a whole lot else because of time constraints.

Do you know of any good Northern lakes around that area?

Check the regs again, I believe they took the moratorium off of the walleyes for 2004. I think you can keep them now.

I have caught some huge bass there and they are usually quite willing.
I think they also are now allowing a slot for northerns.

NORTHERN PIKE and LARGEMOUTH BASS: All must be immediately returned to the water.

My bad, I glanced at St Olaf (which is right above it) which is 30" minimum.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
