Has anyone heard any reports of whitefish or tulibee being caught recently?

There are many tulibee mixed in with the walleye and sauger.  Deeper water and mud are the places to search out a good school of them.

I know where to look but I'm just curious how the bite has been for them.

In my experience, they aren't showing up as often as they were only a year or two back.  Couple winters back they were prolific.  Couldn't go anywhere without getting into at least a half dozen of these buggers.

I caught one on Monday, in 32 feet of water, but it was a dandy!  At least 3, maybe 3 1/2 lbs.?  As usual, this fish was suspended about 12-14 feet off bottom, and as soon as I reeled up to it, it quickly turned and hammered my bait.  It'll be a dandy for the smoker!

I don't know very much about these deep water, pelagic fish.  They must go in population cycles...kinda like crappies?  Fast growing, short life cycle???  Maybe just me, but I'm just not seeing nearly as many as we did a couple winters ago, and I'm primarily fishing the same areas.

This past weekend, only two were caught by our group of three fishermen and they were small, in the 10" range.

      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.
