Sylvia Bass Report

Recommended Posts


didn't get to the lake until 3pm but that didn't seem to matter.

We started trolling to get to our first spot with the lead core and bam, first of three bass from 16-18"

Got to the first spot and caught maybe 15 or 16 from 10 to 17 inches. All on power worms.

trolled up the lake towards the channel and caught 2 northerns and 2 more bass on the leadcore with reefrunners.

Wormed the next spot and only caught 5 smaller bass

Through the channel we go and the next spot we smoked about 20 more bass on worms, biggest was 19+ then the rain set in and we got soaked.

back through the channel and trolling with leadcore and reef runners we continued to pick up nice bass and one more northern with no eyes at all right up till dark.

I really like the no wake thing. there were no bleepin jet skies.

What a day we had. still a great lake.

Just an update from another outing as it was game on for the largies at Sylvia once again.

Did not do much trolling this time as we hit spots all the way to the east lake and boated another 40+ fish most were over 12 inches and we had several over 18 and none over 19.

All power worms texas rigging again in deep water.

The gators were in full force as well as the were hitting the worms as well with getting sawed off about every tenth bass. and we boated a bunch as well. nothing over 5 pounds though.

fish were a bit more scattered this time but on the same locations. dark colors worked best.

once again it was so nice not to here jet skies.

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike
