Was planning on going to the big pond the middle of next week and wondering how far Brandt has his rentals out, or who has them out by the bite? Thanks for the info

We were in Brandt's on Jan 1st and caught 4 walleyes and 2 pout. At the time we were at the end of the plowed road on Sloppy Joe's in 31' of water. A snow storm moved in that evening. All the walleyes were caught during the day...Don't forget rattle reels, the houses are not equiped with them. I am sure they are out even farther with the latest weather...Good luck

Was at Brandts on the 15 & 16, Caught a 32inch Northern that we had to throw back, No walleyes and no perch! Seen 10 or so walleyes on the camera, wouldn't bite we tried everything. Seen 20 to 25 perch none would bite. From what i seen there roads are still only out to sloppy joes, thats where we were at in 28 feet of water. I would not recommend renting there 8x12 house it was a dump, the beds had about 1 inch of padding, they had a old barrel shaped heater, and we either froze or sweated to death no in between. One of the guys that came out to check are propane ran over are tip up and broke it. Never got a sorry or we'll pay for it.There bigger houses are a little nicer but they sure aren't no McQuids!

They also don't charge like McQuoids. We fished Brandt's over the weekend, the house was only out to Jordan hole which disappointed me since I was assured we would have a house out to Sloppy Joes or the gravel. But whatever, we caught four walleyes, nothing over 13" and about 10 perch, one keeper. We had our rattle reels go four times Friday night, one walleye, one miss, one broken line, and one pout. We had quite a few hits during the day Saturday but it was a real light bite and hook ups were really tough. Never had a rattle go off Sat. night. Not great fishing but still fun, and the beer was awfully cold!

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      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!
