Finally the time has come to venture to god`s part of the world. Just wanted to get some feedback on the status on the lake. I know you don`t personally fish Star much, but your usually on the pattern`s at the time. So what`s going on up there? Are the bull`s on the bed`s yet? I would like to get the kid`s on some of those hulk like pannies. They are a blast in anybody`s boat. I did get my fish back from last year`s trip and she is really pretty. Now ALL THOSE BIG FEMALES GO BACK. Really pumped to get up there. My 10 year old daughter even asked if she had fresh line on her reel`s for the trip. Sweet! If you or anybody else reading have some updated info for us, it`s always appreciated. Thanks Flip

Hey flip! As of tuesday night I'm still lindyrigging shiner minnows in 16 to 24 ft of water, they have been outdoing the "tubbed" baits 4 to 1 in my boat, the spinner/crawler leech thing I think should be going by this weekend. Water temps were running 64 to 66 degrees and the deeper weedlines are starting to show up decent. find a windblown edge and go to work! You did it last summer! Yes the gills are bedding too.MMMMMMM lolo Have a fun trip !!! Paul

Flipnripem,
Had some clients on Star last sat. We found some nice fish in 8-12' weed lines. The weather was cloudy and 15 mph wind from the east.I agree with Paul, this weekend with sun and light wind look a little deeper and stay with light fireballs and golden shiners. Noticed there was quit a bug hatch, so might be time to try the crawlers, leech rigs.Good Luck and enjoy !

Thanks guy`s, this is why I enjoy spending my time on the FM website. People are always willing to stick there neck`s out for a fellow fisherman. Nine day`s straight on the water is never enough! Saturday start`s out with a bass tourny on a local sweet spot. I do believe I`ve got them pinned down, and that`s a good way to start a tourny day! As soon as I get home it`s load the kid`s in the van and a six hour road trip to heaven. May even look you up this year. My inlaw`s converted the lake house to a permanent and installed a dell. Thanks again, Flip

Fellas, I just finally got back to reality today. Man wordk does cut into a guy`s fishing time. Picture perfect weather for a jet skier or a sun seeker. Don`t get me wrong I did enjoy the weather and the kid`s caught a ton of gill`s. Most of them went back for a trip this fall? Bass have my number on this lake? Is it possible that a lake with awsome weed lines and perfect habitat for bass doesn`t hold a fishable population of bass? Anyhow, some part`s of the lake have a good jump on summer. The cabbage is coming along good. If you could find a thick patch, there were a lot of fish of all species. Yep even the bullheads were on the bite. I had a hard time with the eye`s untill fri. The wind blew a bit, I`d guess 25 to 30 for three day`s in a row. That really positioned the fish. Pretty tough to stay on them consistantly. Managed a limit on sat. and a bunch of them snake`s. Did pull the boat on thur. and went to Dead for the day. Nice water and plan to get back again someday. Sorry I don`t have any big fish storie`s, but again it is a treat to able to fish the lake`s area. P.S. why does a guy that fished 10 day`s straight want to get back on the water the next day? Flip

      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!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      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.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
