Bass boat on LOW ...........where to fish in case of wind

Recommended Posts

LittleRanger

I bought a 18.5ft bass boat. Dont fish the big lake very often, but am going for opener or following week. Will have my son and thought I'd go for pike if the lake is too choppy. We'll be at Cyrus Resort. Where would be a good place to go if the weather (or courage) will not let me go onto the main lake? The shallow bay South of Pine Island? River? What lures, any favorites for the gators? Son has never caught anything over 5lbs. Thanks all.<P>LR

Zipple bay is a great place for pike fishing and it's not that far from Cyrus's. You could launch at the State park or Zipple bay resort.

I would fish 4 mile bay. Just as you come out of the channel from Cyrus and see big water look to the east . There is decent size reed island quite a ways out from the south shore. <BR>Its allways visible when I'm up there over Memorial day but not sure about opening fishing.<BR>Ive caught lots of 35-37" pike in that general area.<BR>Best baits were large spinnerbaits ,white or firetiger<BR>Be VERY careful when boating in the bay.<BR>Lots of deadheads! also rocks if you get to close to that southern shore.<BR>Also, dont rule out casting spoons from the docks. I caught a 9lb'er from the docks at Randalls just down the line from Cyrus.<BR>Good Luck

      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.

      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.
