I was out on bush lake on Monday 1/15 and there was still open water on the point and over the deep hole so be very careful.

We had a couple of tip ups out and didn't get any flags but a couple guys by the boat launch caught a couple small pike. I had a vexilar in the water while we were jigging and there were a few fish near the bottom but they were biting very lightly and we never did get anything on the ice. We probably would have done better if we would have stayed out longer but the 8 degree temp took its toll even though we were in a house.

Fished for Pike for about 3 hours yesterday afternoon.

Gorgeous day, but no fish. Ice was around 8" near the fishing pier on the point. Nobody was driving out yet thank goodness.

That area by the point still looks fresh. I'd steer clear of it, especially with all this snow sitting on it.

I drive bush to and from work. I see so few guys fishing it, which tells me something.

I drive by it often too, and I see the same homemade portable house all by his lonesome out there EVERY time. Either he knows something about the lake to make him get on it, or he knows about something in his house to make him get out of it and go fishing. wink.gif

I fished this lake a bunch of times last year. Only thing I ever caught was dink perch. However, Bob over at Moore's bait has a few that come in every week heading over there for pike. From what I gather, nothing huge, but fun. Personally, I got no confidence in the lake, but if somebody is out there slaying the fish Kudos to them. I tip my hat.

      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.

      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?
