i was up there and had a great time...we did not participate in the tourney as it would have cut into the fishing time too much. we ended up keeping 11 fish, mostly 14 inchers. tossed back 2 pout. one,long and thin, maybe 3 lbs the other a little chubby one about 15 inches long. we went out of schusters resort and rented a house from them. we were in 28 feet of water,caught 21 fish total...missed 4 i think...lossed none. 2 on green with a pink dot, 2 on "green-n-glow"which is the same as the pink dot jobby...but has a green dot, one on gold and agreen glow rubber grub..2 on a blue frosty.my buddy got his on a red frosty,and the green a green dot. i do not know which other lures he mayhave had sucess on...sorry mostly it was dead sticking with a swoop once in a while to help them notice it. the one i caught on the gold jig...was as if it was on the jig the whole time. i went to give it a jig....and it seem i was snagged so either it hit the intant i touched the jig, orit was on for a while and i never knew it was there. (the key board on this comp is acting oddly today) the bobber never moved. hmmm...mostly they hit whenyoudid something else. if you went out the bobber went down...dig throgh your gear..the bobber went down. i think aggressive jigging would help bring them into the area...then they would find the minnows hanging down there and eventually pick one. most of our fish were near bottom and most were saugers. wegot 2 about 8 ft. up i do not recall if they were wallys or not. we also had onebig blip on the ol' sonar...5 red bars! never found out what it was. info that i picked up on this forum helped...change colors every15 min. if no luck on it,also that gold was a good color. another thing don't unpack completely when you first get there...it may be a dead sea and you might want to go to another spot when the bomber pilot comes to check on you. we had some fish on the flasher almost all the time so we decided ourspot was ok. hope all who did go in for the contest had a great time.......later, pyro

hey bobber! keep your stuff to a minimum...they really fill the bomber. also...we got there at 6:35 the bombers left at 6:30...so when he says be there by 6:30...he means it! the next round out was about an hour later. they stick to what they say there. i liked them.

      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.
