Sylvia (old Twin & Sylvia) Bass

Recommended Posts

My cousin is coming the first weekend in June and wants to go bass fishing. Just curious if the bass are found along the deep weed edges, docks or are up shallow this time of year? I'm not much of a bass fisherman although my username says basscatcher (it's just a cb handle my grandpa gave me years ago for catching smallies on Rainy Lake).

At any rate, any suggestions on what type of structure and depth to hit and what type of lures to use would be greatly appreciated.

A friend of mine had a place, out there if you go like you are driving on to the lake from the access, take a left in to that little hole,channel. There is a big brown house(tall)and a deck, with all fenced(chainlink)in yard the boat in there at that time of year, my G--, you could not even sit on the dock or try to shore fish or they would have hooked you. I dont know why they didn't park and ask to use her dock, has you could walk from the boat to the dock with out missing a beat. Some of the bass were really nice, most everything i seen caught was C&R. Good luck.Lynn

my grandmother had a cabin on that lake i spent almost every summer there till i was 14yo i do try to fish there as often as time permits the one thing i can tell you is be prepared for CLEAR water the lake is clean clean clean

for the most part spring fed

i was out there this past ice season about 4 weeks before ice out and it is remarkable the clairity like looking thru a clean window

i had the camera down and you could see for a long ways out

good luck fishing there and please check your trailer before putting in for any weeds or debries

I hear ya. That is a pristine lake with very clear/clean water. It's one of my more favorite sunfish lakes. I always check my rig for weeds when I pull out of the water, no matter what lake it is. It's also good to take the rig in for a quick wash when getting back to town too because you can't always see all the small weeds on your rig.

Thanks for the info. Wherever we fish for bass, it will be C&R only. I like Sylvia because not only does it have bass, but as I mentioned above, it has some nice sunnies in it too. Can go out and catch bass, then get some sunnies to take home for a meal.

Thanks for the replies!

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.
