It's my bread and butter, when it come to walleyes. I Love doing it. It's more proactive than a lot of other walleye fishing. Great way to go.

I like to use suspending Shads and Tail Dancers. The largest ones they make. It's funny, I've been fishing since before I could walk, and I've never bothered to learn the Rapala size numbering system. Anyways, I just use perch or blue-sliver chrome. The suspenders work good becuase I'll throw the boat in neutral and let it sit there for a minute or so, and the shads just sit there. Then, pop her in forward. Bingo, hopefully.

Also, If I want to go 7 ft or under, I'll use big Husky Jerks, in green-gold chrome.

I've had some unreal luck out there. The key, in my opinion, is fishing late. I have stayed out there until 330, or later. It's great you have the big ole lake all to yourself. But, if you're out there alone, it can get a little spooky.

Last fall, I was out there, and I had forgotten to grab my GPS, and the thickest fog I've ever seen rolled in. I was lost out there for an hour. When it finally cleared I was on the wrong side of the lake. The next day I put a compass on my steering counsel. It was spooky.

Good Luck.

hey crank yea i like them deep running shads i really like the 5's and the 9's i also really use alot of husky jerks risto raps reef runners and thundersticks for deeper water but the shads seem to work the best out on ott so do you just troll over the flats thats what i do or i will find a rock pile and troll around that and it usually seems to be good for me but any way good luck this weekend

      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.
