We were out there on Sunday from 10am to aprox 3:30pm. Top water frogs were ineffective. Best fishin' for us was in the east bay using spinners in 4 to 7 fow. Both white and white/orange seemed to work. Boated 15 and lost another 5 or 6. Also caught a half dozen slimmers and one big mean bull sunny on a Ikes pre-rigged worm.

Was out on BM last Saturday from about 5pm til the storm came in. I caught A couple small northerns and some smallish (not big enough to eat) crappies on a little white spinner and/or 2" curly tails. One decent bass (16") on the spinner. BTW, I love the Rocket Shad spinner, it works for bass and crappies. Dad was the big bass winner. Several (6-7) bass from 14-17 inches. What's his secret? Jumbo leeches.
Anyone had success for walleye there?

You guys see any crappies in the pencil weeds/bullrushes at all? Was out two weeks ago and the crappies were not there. Just wondering if I missed when they were in the weeds. Thanks for the bass report. It seems they usually can be caught most days on big marine.

      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.
