According to Ice Report app, there was 17" inches reported yesterday. 15" reported 5 days ago. So plenty I'd say.

Was out spying again today.  Plenty of ice on Pearl.  That landing is easy even for a minivan or car.  There are some drift spots that can be easily avoided.  I just had to run into the snow mounds with the truck.:-).   Plenty of ice out there.

Ended up putting my house out there Tues. Caught a few eyes and pike. Eyes have all been too small to keep, and pike have all been just over 24, up to 28. My daughter caught 2 bass today, both around 12 or 13. I missed a lot today, caught a cute 9" eye.

I know this was a couple weeks back but I was wondering what area you typically fish on pearl?  Lake is pretty close to me and I fished it a bunch as a kid.  I have caught a couple crappies and some northern hits but haven't found any walleyes out there.  Didn't know if maybe I am focusing in the wrong area.

Thanks

When I caught the walleye, the house was across the lake on a steepish drop off.

Ive gotten a few over the years on there usally fish the bar breakline  straight out from the acess. Its a hit and miss walleye lake but there are some good ones in there. There is a minimum size limit of 17 and possession limit of 3. Gd luck.

I've been spending more time out on Pearl this year in water 10 -7 feet deep. Finding a lot of big bass right before dark, not many gills but a nice 23" eye. Always Northern out there.

      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.

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

      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.
