Hey Dick I was wondering how long it would take before you got bored and had to head north again. Is Doc your partner on the open water as well? Good luck. Say hi to Kelly and Jonny.

Orange and brown Watsit jig or orange Fuzz-E grubs, scoop of minnows and away you go, it really is that simple.

Jonny fished the Watzit last fall on our lake for crappies. Very satisfied with the results. They definitley hit 'em with gusto. Have a great summer. Had fish fry last night and the guys are ready for another hard water trip......

Jonny, With all the talk of low water,will there be problems launching boats and getting out on the lake?? Any places a guy should not try to launch? I have a glass 20 ft. boat Thanks in advance for your help!

I had my 620 out of Tamarac last Thursday and it is low. Big sandbar well past the last green can. You will polish up your skeg if you come in hot. Trim up and go slow to the break and you should be safe.

It is going to be nip and tuck but most boats should be able to get out. Worst case is one will have to trim up and push pole for a few feet over a bar. I have been out from Mort's and the mouth of the river with the Crestliner and no problems. Westwinds Resort had the canal cleaned out so that is also in good shape.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!
    • roony
      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!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

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

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
    • Rick
      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!
