The fishing has been so/so. They are getting a few walleyes and the occasional flurry of crappie activity. No real hot bite going on yet.

There are still some areas of open water that have been moving aroung due to the wind and shifting ice.

Two pickups went down in the last week. One near Boyds landing and one over by Engebretsons(sp).

the state park landing doesn't seem to get used much. I myself haven't heard of anybody using that landing so far.

There are a couple of houses in that area. Everybody seems to be scattered this year probably because of iffy ice.

WALLEYEDUDE2001

As far as the south end, a couple of vehicles were out last week end but they drove out of the pit. The access at the old state park is inacessible (big heave right in front) which was open as recently as a week & a half ago. Fishing was tough last weekend with the cold & wind. Did I mention the wind. Up by the hunting shack (Wally's) by Milan Beach, three guys on Sunday were trying to pull a couple of houses off with cables. Seems someone was walking by one of the houses & went in up to the armpits. The lake opened up by Milan beach to the south big time from the wind. I'm sure is got some ice now. Use caution.

There are more & more houses going in by the "clay banks" & north of Janes out in the middle but again ice varies.

The north end was decent a week ago but they have scattered. The full moon coming up may chane the fising luck but the cold is also supposed to set in so we'll see. Am heading out that way today (wed.) to fish the weekend.

Good luck.

Fished it hard this weekend and not a whole lot to show from it.. Couple eyes and a few perch, I'd never complain about sitting in a house out on LQP though! I love it out there!

I fish the puddle 5 -7 times a week. Once the extreme cold has set in the crappie bite has been real scattered. If you do a little work you should be able to get on top of a hard hittin school. Best advice I could give would be to setup in the house cities. Either a little shallower or deeper then every body else is where i've had the best luck.

I've been catching walleyes real shallow in several different areas of the lake. The action is fast and furious if you can find a shallow spot where they are feeding on bait that doesn't have fins or gills. Seek and ye shall find.

      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
    • ozzie
      Sounds good!  I won't be up this weekend but in the future I will look for ya!  I am in a couple different boats but a Lund Tyee is what I would be in most often with a 200 merc on the back.
    • Hoey
      Not to mention that some of these boats had doubles on the biggies, so they could select the heaviest or caught another biggie after tagging one.  Our boat did not get a biggie.  We had over 24 slots for the day, our biggest was 25".

      Women can hike to spectacular views of autumn colors and Lake Superior on the horizon during a three-day fall workshop that teaches a variety of outdoor skills through the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Getting to that view includes 330 feet of elevation gain on the Superior Hiking Trail – the kind of physical and mental challenge known well to Jo Swanson, trail development director for the Superior Hiking Trail Association and the keynote speaker for the fall workshop. “One of my themes is empowerment – learning to overcome fears of adventuring in the outdoors,” Swanson said. “We live in a culture of fear and people react strongly when women go on outdoors adventures, especially when they go alone. The truth is that with planning and preparation, the outdoors can be a very safe place.” The fall workshop is Friday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Sept. 16, in a new location this year at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center near Finland, Minn. Attendees will hear from Swanson and Minnesota state park naturalists. Session topics include Ojibwe heritage, Voyageurs, archery, canoeing, and the animals, plants and geology of the North Woods. Linda Bylander, coordinator of the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program, said that along with the new location, the workshop offers a new selection of classes this year. “Women who attend the fall workshop gain a whole range of experiences in a supportive environment,” Bylander said. “We chose dates when the fall colors should provide a beautiful backdrop. The workshop is designed for women ages 18 and up but girls ages 14 to 17 are welcome to attend with parents or guardians. Visit mndnr.gov/bow for more information and to register.

      Quite a strong bite for the Streiffs tourney. I think there were 20 or so over 28", with the biggest weighing 10 3/4. Last year I think there were five overs. The boats were spread all over the lake. Many were fishing the mud, a few were quite shallow and some on the rocks. Most guys spoke of slot fish like crazy......but roughly 1 out of 6 boats having a 28" plus is crazy!! The stage got a bit crowded when the big fish catchers got up there for a picture.

      They can go on opener like everyone else does instead of pre-emptively scaring the local ducks out of the area.

      Congratulations!.  I am sure it's a bittersweet time for you.  All the best!
    • Wanderer
      My recollection of Sylvia is it being a nice, clean looking lake that would have nice views.  Bass were plentiful when I last fished it but ran pretty small on the weedlines.  You had to fish the slop to get better sized bass.  Couldn’t tell you a thing about walleyes there. I agree with Tom, Clearwater is a more dynamic fishery.
    • Wanderer
      We had to cut the hooks on one of my fish this year.  Caught on a Cisco Kid, 2 of 3 sets of trebles in the fish.  Just by how they were twisted, the leverage made removal by pulling very difficult and the fish would thrash when I attempted to work them out.  Made the decision pretty easy to cut the hooks. I’m honestly considering going barbless on everything.  Half the time the lure shakes free in the net anyway so the pressure is what keeps them buttoned until netted.  The plus is if one of us gets one in the hand when working on a netted fish, it won’t hurt so bad getting it out!
    • Wanderer
      Thanks for the feedback.   We have the time from hookset to release pretty short I think.  I read earlier this spring the average fight these days lasts 90 seconds or less.  I’ll admit I was amazed to hear that but after a half dozen muskies that have come to net this year, that’s no bull.  We usually have em netted on the first pass by the boat.  My 48 inch net allows one to do all the handling in the water while the other gets the bump board laid out and phone ready for a pic. A quick measure and quick pics and back in the water they go. Thats about as much as we can do.  70 degrees is lower than I expected to hear.  We were seeing those temps on opening weekend in Ontario.  We didn’t like seeing 80 last Friday on Leech.
