Too late DC168, the walleye are already over populating Sylvan. They look like they might be starving as they are very thin and small. Only the occasional big pike still in here but I keep trying anyway. Very Very easy to catch a hundred walleye in one outing

I have seen/caught/put back a few walleyes during ice fishing. It seems that Sylvan may turn into another Pigeon/Gull, in which less pike, perch and white. Eventually the walleyes have nothing to eat but themselves.

So no tags for this summer again another year of tossing back hundreds of walleye without the ability to keep even one. Well I sure hope the perch come back in the size and numbers they used to be but I doubt it.

Sylvan, Pine, Gull, Pigeon, Battle, Buck Lake all closed now. Any Lake with pike or walleye is closed for the spring spawn.

Hi Rogerwhitefish, Thank you for the update. It sounds very scary to know how thick the ice is. I double my Auger might not penetrate through the ice layer.

At RR 23 yesterday. Auger sank right to the clutch. Close to 36" of ice. Saw a couple of uninterested whites. Don't be afraid to buy an auger extension. Clearing the snow before drilling helps. Please follow the regs and practise "Catch and Release" to preserve the fishery.

If you want lots of perch go on at palm pay, head towards the point going back towards subdbreaker and fish off the weeds in 6' water. They are all small / tiny and are throw back but there are lots of them.

Sunbreaker has more than 16 inch ice. The ice is being pushed up and formed a ridge. Be careful when drive out. Good luck.
