Here is a run down of last weeks lakes for me.

Sarah/ Cokata / Clearwater/

Was on Sarah a couple of days and catching lots of sunnies and crappies in the shallow bays 1-3 feet of water.
They both were taking minnow/crawler bobber combinations. My bobber was only about 9 inches down.

Then decided to switch over to beattle spins/ tiny tiny cranks and caught much bigger fish.

Still cant find the bass. It is really starting to *(&^(*&%( me off.

My dad and I ended taking home a dozen fish or so for a dinner.

Next headed to cokata to chase some smallies. What a day the weather was great(actually terrible) but worked great for smallies. The wind was out the south at 15+ and cloudy. Nailed the smallies on the breakline between 9 to 18 feet of water using jerkbaits, pop-r,s tiny spiner baits.

Also ended up cathcing a 11.9 lb channel kitty.

Clearwater - Main goal was to chase bass. Endeup of with 3 bass early off a deep pt in Augusta using mojo with brush hog and chart. spinner baits. Then headed for the "dam" entrance to I think grass lake and caught a few small pike on the break using cranks.

That was all. Very frustrated with clearwater this time. Normally always catch fish there.

In fact I was in a area where I have gone many times and have always caught fish. This little area has a channel to a small lake. Tried, spinner baits, cranks, wacky worms, jig/pig, lindy rig ncralwer/leeach, mojo, carlonia rig, fished the shallow side, the steep drop ledge, the deep water. Not a (*^(*^(_(*)& thing after 5 hours. Did not even see any sunnies being caught.

Will report back with more info in the wright county area. Sometime in the next week. I have limited access during the summer(see my profile).

I too, want to check out lake Sarah. Coming back from Vermillion and catching a few slab bluegills reminded me how much fun they are to catch.

Too bad the average size around here doesn't compare to the ones you get outside the metro area.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      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!
