I plan on getting out this afternoon or tomorrow for the first time this year and try the new auger.I am going after Crappies or Walleyes.I was wondering if anyone had any info on these two lakes?I have never fished Sylvan so I don't know where to get on the lake or where to start fishing.I have fished Splithand a few times from the resort,but have never tried anywhere else.Any info would be appreciated.

On sylvan bay, go out about half way and a little to the left and fish in the 40 foot hole. Start about half way down and you should find a few crappies. I fished Split hand a lot in the summer not sure about the winter. I'll be on Split Hand near christmas. Let me know how ya do.

Good Fishin'

i was on splithand last weekend it was really slow but pickin up call dave at the resort and he'll let ya know how there bitin.
from the resort go out to the right to the group of houses 200 yds or so. thats alot of the guys that live on or by the lake they stay on the crappies most of the year.
and there pickin up walleyes with the crappies again (bonus) prize. for sylvan right where he said for crappies is creme of the crop right now. walleyes go just out from the landing and to the left right at the end of the channel or off the opposite point in about 14 ft of water. Tip ups about a foot off bottom with somethin glow in the dark (blue/white or pink/white) with a 3-5 inch sucker or shiner works really well out there. and by the way leave some for me!

Fisherman gave you a good spot for crappies. A lot of people are also catching them in the 31 feet of water straight out from landing. In this 31 feet, run one lure about 3 feet off bottom for crappies and run one about a foot off of bottom for bluegills and walleyes. Some nice walleyes have been pulled out of there this year, but not in any numbers. The crappies seem to be all over in water 25 feet or more. It's just a matter of finding them. Haven't fished Splithand yet. Good luck.

good fishin

Thanks guys for all the info.I ended up going to Splithand,went out of the resort and to the right,with the group of houses in 18ft of water.There was 8" of good ice.Got 3 walleyes(not real big,but good eaters)missed a few and lost a big one at the hole,1 rock bass and no crappies.Had lots of fish on the vex and had alot of lookers.I hope to get out a couple times next week on my days off,maybe try sylvan.

      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.

      Has been pretty slow lately. One night you do decent then the next nothing. Very hit or miss.

      Aren't there some great spots along the Mississippi south of the TC? I'm not familiar with that part of the state but it seems I've heard things.

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before 
    • Fishguy20
      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor
