The bite has slowed considerably over the weekend with all the traffic that was out there. As for best times evenings still seem better than mornings, so try and be set up by 3 or so.Good luck!

I have been fishing 8am to 2pm the last week or so. The best times that I have for crappies are from 8-11 and then it dies off. Yesterday, when the fish stopped biting in the permanent, I went out searching for fish. I walked 30 ft. to an open hole and found the motherload. I stood there for the next hour and caught about 15 crappies. 10 of these were over 9 inches and one was a shade under 12. This was at noon in about 38 fow. The night bite really died in my spot, but the bobbers are flying down the holes as soon as I get there in the morning. Fishing season is over and its back to school for me. Hope this info helps someone, but save some for me next year.

Thanks for info Bigfife! If they aren't biting its time to move. Being mobile is the key to catching fish. With all the pressure at night it makes sense that could find them in the morning looking to eat. Good luck in school.

Just wondering if there were any diehards on the lake this weekend. looking to head out wednesday in search of some crappies for the freezer. had the three year old out for his first timr last week and managed to scrape out a meal of fish between candy dispensing and putting the minnows back in the bucket (some of them slightly worse for wear), but he was a trooper for 3.5 hrs and seemed to enjoy himself! anyone got and suggestions for those fish that seem to just swim with it and not take it enough for a hookset

Thats awesome Crewdog that you brought your little buddy out there! The bonds that are created through fishing last a lifetime!!

A trick to try for those light biters is to use a spring bobber, you can detect the faintest of bites, quite often you will see the spring actually rise not drop when you have a fish. If you have ever watched panfish hit either with a camera or sight fishing, you would be amazed at the fish that bite that you never feel. Good luck out there!! Hopefully you and your little buddy can make it out to the ICE Series! My office is donating a $200.00 Gander Mountain gift certificate to the kid with the heaviest weight. So hope we can see you out there!

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