A buddy and I have seen nearly 80 whites this am, but haven't got a single bite! What set ups/line/jigs/bait are you gentlemen using? Also where would a guy go for pike?
by KRONZYFISHBATTER on Mar. 29, 2017

dothepuff...I went to Sylvan after Gull Yesterday, and I caught my first White!!! So I was very excited!!!
by Jaylive on Mar. 26, 2017
I guess it bares mentioning I only kept 2 to try in the pan
Caught over 30 whites the last couple days...you don't need to share your coffee with the guys at rr23. What a gong show...last couple days I think I had one group within 300 yards. Gold or copper PK spoon tipped with maggots. First year targeting whites man they are a fun aggressive fish at this time.

Decent weekend in Sylvan, from the boat launch in Norglenwold we go maybe a couple clicks toward Half Moon Bay. Went out sat afternoon, ice was about 22', caught 2 whitefish and didn't see much else in about less than 10' of water. Went out a bit deeper sunday morning and got a bit more action. Tons of small perch hanging around, caught 2 more whitefish and saw a few decent pike but no biters. All in all a good weekend !

by Minnowdunker on Jan. 1, 2017
Thieves on the lake, some low life stole my Ameristep 4 man pop up tent off the ice at RR23 / Kuusamo Kreest over Christmas break. According to the RCMP there is lots reports of theft on the ice, make sure you pack it off or lock it up and watch out for each other. These SOB,s aren,t fisherman, they are just low life thieves.
by Boudar on Dec. 31, 2016
Just pulled out a 10lb pike and 30 mons after a 5lber. Saw a huge 15++ but only sucked on my bait and the spit it

More ice at Palm but it's cracking and poping constantly. Freaked out the gf to much to stay
by SJG on Dec. 18, 2016
Does sylvan lake have a website to find out the thickness of the ice. We would like to go out today on our side by side but not sure of the safety of this.

Fished on Sunday Aug 21-2 of us caught 68 Walleye by noon
by 09cabelas on Aug. 20, 2016
@big dog. Jig head and minnow work the best. Look for the drop just to the east of rr23 and find 17 - 20 feet of water and you should catch eyes all day long non stop
by bigfisher15 on Aug. 15, 2016
what the best bait to use when you're fishing off shore?
by Big dog on Aug. 12, 2016
I hate auto correct. Meant to say usually use a jig head with a minnow.
Heading out tommorow to RR 23. Did some ice fishing there but nothing in the summer. Taking 2 kids and would be great if anyone has any tips on where,depth and bait to try to get some walleye to catch and release with the kids. I usually have used a highway tipped with a minnow.
by Gdad on Jul. 26, 2016
Hit a school of walleyes at the west point of half moon bay. Caught 20-30 in short order. All around 15-17" so not big but it was a blast!

Where would be a good area to catch some whites from shore?

by Slav98 on Jun. 17, 2016
Great fishing, Fishermandan! Do you think, you could share the location? Thanks.
by Fishermandan on Jun. 17, 2016
Went shore fishing June 16. Started fishing for walleyes and quickly noticed the schools of small perch. After no success for eyes or pike, switched to a small spinner and ended up catching my limit of 8-12 inch perch within the hour.

Hey Everyone. Anyone looking for an Ice Hut for Rent? My boys and I have built an 8'x16' beauty. Fully finished exterior and interior. More like a small cabin than an Ice Hut. Kitchen, Bathroom, Wood Stove, Beds and More. Comes fully stocked with Rods, TipUps, Tackle, Bait, Camp Stove, BBQ and even a Poker Table. Book it for a day trip or for an overnighter. We've done several already. This is a hobby gig for my Little Guys and I this winter to get them in the fresh air and save for their trip to Disney. If you'd like more info and pictures please drop us a line. email@example.com

How much is it
by Dwayne80 on Feb. 3, 2016
Hey Everyone. Anyone looking for an Ice Hut for Rent? My boys and I have built an 8'x16' beauty. Fully finished exterior and interior. More like a small cabin than an Ice Hut. Kitchen, Bathroom, Wood Stove, Beds and More. Comes fully stocked with Rods, TipUps, Tackle, Bait, Camp Stove, BBQ and even a Poker Table. Book it for a day trip or for an overnighter. We've done several already. This is a hobby gig for my Little Guys this winter to get them in the fresh air and save for their trip to Disney. If you'd like more info and pictures please drop us a line.
by Evan Brotherston on Feb. 2, 2016
Great place for me if you use tip ups with herring I got a 8lb pike and a 3lb burbot the burbot was caught on green smelt
by Flyfisher08 on Jan. 31, 2016
At Palm beach area, saw 4 whites in 2 hours swam right by my presentation, which was a silver kastmaster with a green wire worm 12-16" above it on 4 pound translucent. Also tried with yellow and orange couldn't get any to give a second look. Gonna try and make it out again and figure em out but any tips to shorten the process would be greatly appreciated as I have not fished sylvan much. Thanks in advance
by scabbymaggot on Jan. 31, 2016
Jan 30 2016: The boys and I spent 8 hours at Palm Bay. 20" of ice, tonnes of perch but no keepers, 2 whitefish 2lb range, and saw some big pike. We were hammering the perch and whites with pink tear drops and maggots. 20ft depth.

by Marty2 on Jan. 28, 2016
Does anyone know how much ice is left after this week of warm weather? Planning to go fishing Jan 30th.

by DTM1982 on Jan. 24, 2016
Out for the day on sat, on the ice for about 6 hrs (noon - 6pm) 200m north / north east of the pier. Tons of small perch, landed 3 in the 8" category. Landed one beauty walleye, two more nice ones got away. Allan's all a good day.

by I Soar Lodge on Jan. 21, 2016
greetings fellow anglers. We have gone to half moon twice but must be fishing too deep. threw everything in our arsenal but nothing biting. Going out again tomorrow for an overnighter. will report back if successful. Any tips would be appreciated.

by Femmefisher on Jan. 14, 2016
Fished yesterday, caught a nice walleye. Drove onto the ice went to the right , about 1\2 km then about 5-600m from shore. Could have went out to get a little deeper I think, but FISH ON!!
by Jaylive on Jan. 14, 2016
Went out 6:00 to 8:30 last night to try twilight fishing and actually caught 3 wallys and missed about the same amount. Couple guys said they have stayed till 9 and caught so I gave er a go and I guess it works. Might have to try that again. North side of lake Jarvis area
by LazyIke on Jan. 12, 2016
Went to both Range 23 and Halfmoon Bay today. Dead dead dead. Saw just one whitefish at half moon bay. No bites. Wife saw a small pike and small perch.
by Colorado28 on Jan. 12, 2016
Going to Sylvan lk. For the first time on Thursday. Can anyone plse tell me what bait to use? I guess I'm going around half moon bay - unless you can tell me of a better spot. Thanks in advance for sharing info.
by Mike6289 on Jan. 12, 2016
Planning to go sylvan this weekend for whitefish. Never fished there before. Any suggestions about where to go what to use and how deep should I fish would be highly appreciated. Thanks guys.
by Fishingmike on Jan. 12, 2016
by AV Fisher on Jan. 11, 2016
Fishing mike, at the end of RR21 there is a boat launch. You can drive right onto the lake from there.
by Fishingmike on Jan. 11, 2016
How do I get onto the lake at half moon bay please.
by sask_quatch on Jan. 11, 2016

by fishpoop on Jan. 10, 2016
3 guys on half-moon Bay 1 pike 1 burbs 1 white tons of perch couple 10"ers lots of whites and a pig pike down the hole
by Karrnage on Jan. 10, 2016
Went out yesterday saw a lot of whites on rr23 landed a 43 inch pike. Almost lost em. Anyone know the record for pike in sylvan? Can't figure out what the whites are biting on this year. Wire worms aren't working.
by Tip_Up on Jan. 10, 2016
Went out Friday night to Saturday morning for an evening and sunrise fish for burbs and whities out on Half Moon Bay. Disappointed in the whities action, but the walleye were fantastic all night long. -29C but about 2 dozen walleye pulled through the ice all night.Only 2 burbs.
by JiffyLP on Jan. 9, 2016
Bring some small jigs or just bare hooks, but small. Worms, shrimp again something small and you should be able to catch perch all day. Great fun for kids....
Have seen perch everywhere this year, nothing big though. The deeper the water the better. 200m NNW of Norglenwold would be good. 6" off the bottom.
by White master on Jan. 8, 2016
Hey everyone, i am about to go next week to Sylvan for the first time in 20 years with the little one anyone have any suggestions on where a great spot would be for some action for the little one.

by concreteforeman on Dec. 31, 2015
Non stop walleye action in front of the half moon bay at around the 20-25 foot range was amazing action today
by Bcool on Dec. 31, 2015
Half moon bay today 12" of ice 400 yards from shore not much fish action, and too many people driving to fast on the ice, they must not know what that does to the water under the ice.
by Jacquard24 on Dec. 31, 2015
Traveled to sun breaker cove two days and had nothing but small perch, saw a couple whites and a large pike. Don't think I will travel back to sylvan. If you enjoy 6 inch perch this is the spot for you 12 inches of ice
by Kingfisher01 on Dec. 31, 2015
Anyone seeing any whites near Palm Bay??

Was set up about two hundred meters from the channel entering marina bay. A lot of small perch early then a determined ling cod at least one nice pike and a couple walleye.
Was only trying for a nice pike or walleye but that ling cod kept spoiling the party....
I'm seeing more little perch this year than usual in unexpected spots.
by Uncle Ben on Dec. 26, 2015
Looking at the depth chart of the lake where there is a large area 50-60ft deep just off the point. Has anyone caught any White fish or any fish in the deep part especially when it is slow in the shallow?
by HoneyBadger on Dec. 24, 2015
10 inches today at half moon bay. Saw some small perch, nothing more, but was setup too shallow. Couple trucks on the lake, and one guy ripping donuts in a jeep driving upwards of 40-50 km/hr on the lake. yikes
by JiffyLP on Dec. 24, 2015
Lots of perch about 1km directly north of the norglenwold access. 28.5' of water. Unfortunatley all were quite small...

by Dubcepticon on Dec. 20, 2015
About 7-8" of ice last week (Dec 13th) around birchcliff. That's only about 200 yards out, in around 6-10 feet of water. Didn't catch a thing.
by Weeman on Dec. 17, 2015
Anybody know how the very northwest bay is thanks wondering if I'm safe to park on the side and take a quad out

Gave it a go today. Walked out. Spent 3 hours. Saw 2 whitefish and no takers.
by JiffyLP on Dec. 11, 2015
I've been curious for years if there's any good fishing off the reeds at Petro beach. I usually set up a semi-permanent shack off Marina Bay. I've put together a great mobile set up this year so looking for any ideas and experiences.
by 09cabelas on Dec. 10, 2015
Only about 3-4 inches of ice where I checked at sun breaker.

by iYearn on Jul. 15, 2015
Nice job HoneyBadger!
What were you using to get the subtle hits? gotta luv it when the 'eyes just "lip it". :-)
by HoneyBadger on Jul. 13, 2015
Was out last night between 8 and 10 pm. Landed 30 Walleye between two of us. Range from 1 lb to 2.5 lbs. Subtle hits, but seemed to be healthy fish.
by iFish Guest on Jul. 9, 2015
Fishing with a two and a four year old, my wife and I still landed 20+ walleye in about an hour. I hope the gov't opens this lake soon as the walleye are getting smaller and smaller and overpopulated.

Any good spots to shore fish with a three year old? Going camping at jarvis bay and never fished this lake before

Are the whitefish not soft and bad eating at his time of year ?
by 09cabelas on Jun. 22, 2015
9 whitefish in 1 hour. Just out from the weeds past sun breaker. Red wireworm with maggots 2 feet below balsa float. Fishing in 4 - 6 foot of water

Where's a good spot to fish from shore on the lake? I don't have a boat and don't know anyone with one. Just moved to sylvan and its to far of a drive to go my old spot so I figure I'll try this lake.

by rogerwhitefish on Mar. 28, 2015
Caght 2 small whites on a len thompson gold spoon in 20+ ft of water. Walk on only. Very slushy ice and much thinner now.
by WU J on Mar. 15, 2015
@Whitefish King: thanks for your information. I wonder what kind of hooks you were using when catching whites and where is the shop located in Sylvan town?
by 09cabelas on Mar. 15, 2015
The losers that were to lazy to get there shack off the ice at sun breaker and just decided to burn it need a slap. Hopefully everyone else has enough respect to get their shacks off the ice
by HoneyBadger on Mar. 14, 2015
by SylvanSpinner on Mar. 14, 2015
Access points have deteriorated significantly. Very wet and slushy w/ deep ruts on surface, I'd say driving no longer recommended.

by Ml on Mar. 8, 2015
Out at Sunbreaker today in 14.7 feet of water. Saw lots of whites but no bites. Had a decent pike take my red wire worm I was jigging for the whites instead of the minnow on a jig close to it. Go figure.
by HoneyBadger on Mar. 7, 2015
Went out to the same spot 10 FOW. Landed and released a little pike right off the hop. One white came in a few times but just wasn't having it. Same little minnow sized perch came in and was nibbling. Moved in to 7 FOW and caught a nice white that was released as well. Good 2 hours of fishing. Cheers
by HoneyBadger on Mar. 6, 2015
Forgot my GPS and couldn't find the ledge I usually sit on. Being lazy I moved to an old spot that I had fun with walleye's last year. 2 walleyes around 4:30. One whitefish kept me company playing tag with the hook but not taking it, and one fearless perch (minnow size) that hung around. Was a good day, 10 FOW. Will see what I can find tomo AM.
by Whitefish king on Mar. 5, 2015
@Wu J, We were out on Sylvan lake on the 28th of Feb and March 1st, we all caught limit in 2 hours. They will not bite wireworm at this time, you need to use bottom bouncers. You can buy them in the shop in Sylvan Town. We use our camera to track exactly where the whites are going, so that's always useful. Do 2 bouncers on the bottom, then hold it about mid water column. That's how we've been catching them!
was it east or west of 23?
by SylvanGauge on Mar. 2, 2015
Anyone else get their shack mowed over and everything stolen out of it i the last week? Ours was left in shambles off of 23
by WU J on Mar. 2, 2015
We all five people have been the lake by the road RR22 W. We saw over 20 whites on Cams but they did not bite and they were just passing slowly at time. Please help me to know why no biting??
by Josiak on Mar. 1, 2015

by Slewjr on Feb. 27, 2015
A little chilly with the wind this morning, but well worth the trip. Whites were moving quite well at RR23

Had a slow day. Tried all over Palm Bay and nothing. Not even seeing anything.
by Big dog on Feb. 22, 2015
Slow day at RR 2-3. Saw a few whites, landed just one small one. Saw one small pike not interested at all. Saw a few walleye but very skittish and not aggressive at all. Very few people out so I assume it has not been very good there lately.
Anyone else have better success today?

Ya I saw some open water around the structures in marina bay and flood water. But every where eles has lots of safe ice. I went out at lest 500 yards still 25 inches of good ice in 30 feet of water. Never saw anything on two cameras four to five hours. Ya we moved around still nothing. Saw one truck down towards lake view drive he must have been 1500 yards out. Lots of activity.
by Boudar on Feb. 18, 2015
Was out near marina bay on Monday. Windy and cold. The gap exiting the bay had very thin ice on it, once you pass that, there is a lot of ice. Safe for driving D20
by Joe Angler on Feb. 17, 2015
Spent a few hours on the south west end of the lake today and brought out our fish camera. Saw a few decent sized perch and a burbot. No bites tho, still a good day on the ice.
by binnzer32 on Feb. 17, 2015
Don't worry rapala roland just lies about all his catches anyways. Don't believe a word that he says. He was already busted on another social media site. He posted a picture of fish found on a website and claimed that he caught them on gull
by HoneyBadger on Feb. 16, 2015
Slow day for me today. The only white I saw seemed very lethargic compared to the ones on friday. Change in weather maybe. Still a great day on the lake.
by yogibear on Feb. 16, 2015
Rapalaroland I stand corrected and optimistic that at least some people read the regulations that are a guide. I'm waiting on a response from the F/W about targeting Zero Detainment fish species as part of C/R for enjoyment in winter ice fishing because of the elements of exposure that exist causing stress and injury to the fish. I personally witness over the weekend at one of the lakes several people catching lots of fish and not knowing how to handle the fish properly to release it. That becomes a major concern. Open water fishing at least you can keep the fish in the water and manage it better for the survival of the fish. I have seen and heard of people bragging how many fish they caught over the weekend and had retained. more that their total allowed for their maximum limit including the fish they have at home. Wow I have that saying Limit your catch. Not Catch Your Limit. The good thing if they consume these fish daily they are up on the Omega 3. Another thing I observed is people culling their fish especially the perch. So if they do it with the perch I pretty sure they do it with other fish. The regulations are just guidelines to follow and there are other laws that F/W can impose on you that are not in the guidelines for fishing and hunting privileges in Alberta.
by Rapalaroland on Feb. 16, 2015
Hey yogi bear maybe you should read the regulations a little closer there bud!! Just says limit is zero on burbot it's not closed to angling!! And as for the walleye fishing(which is spectacular) do not need a lotto liscense to catch these fish just catch and release only!! When a limit is zero U may still catch but not keep!! When a lake or portion of a lake is closed to angling then u cannot fish there.
Found several people asking where to catch certain fish that are not in season or a draw fish like walleye. If U don't hold a lottery licence its illegal to target that fish. Burbot is out of season in some lakes now because are spawning. Need to keep up with the regulations they change through out the season to manage the fish resources.
by HoneyBadger on Feb. 14, 2015
Lake is plenty safe to drive on, lots of ice. Snow is wet and deep in some spots. 4wd recommended. Noticeable change in the aggressiveness of the whites yesterday. Checked the bellies as they are eating lots of little shrimps, and small minnows. Cheers
by D20 on Feb. 14, 2015
Just wonder if the lake is so still good & safe to drive on? Where do u recommend to go?
by iltisdepot on Feb. 11, 2015

by WCJames on Feb. 8, 2015
Thanks Slew. I will take any info you got. Ice fishing is sure a lot different than flyfishing. Lol.
by Curt k on Feb. 8, 2015
The five of Diamonds may work, but you are better off with a wireworm and small test line. Maggots can be used. Seen lots of whites in deeper water, waiting for the burbot to spawn as the whites will be more aggressive. Then try the five of diamonds.
Slew; Is the five of diamonds black and yellow or red and yellow? Do you jig this or let it sit? Where do you fish on Sylvan? Sorry about so many questions, I am new to ice fishing. Thanks
Fished near Jarvis Bay yesterday. Nothing all day. Buddy lost on at top of hole. Thinking of moving to south side. Where is a good place?

by slew on Jan. 25, 2015
Heading out early tomorrow . Great day at brownlows today. Slated the limit on the whites and the perch. Got the propane conversion done on the auger. Can't wait. I am in the civic
by DoubleD on Jan. 25, 2015
Ice Report: 17 inSun breaker launch. Consistent 17" in that area. 16" minimum for truck. Walked on. Many drove on. To each his own.
15 FOW out from sun breaker launch. Half dozen smalleyes only took deadstick. No whites. Harassed by a school of small perch for an hour. Christmas treed me and couldn't see anything. Switched to deadstick and problem solved. Ice is 17" NW side. Chose to walk on.
by Rickneck on Jan. 24, 2015
Wanna try for some eyes on sylvan had my fun at gull for a while but don't know the lake too well, also wouldn't mind perch. Any tips on what to use and where to go would be much appreciated, thanks.

how is the bite out there today, got tied up and couldn't go today, heading tomorrow to Brownlows. I am in the civic
Canuck123 I find them shallower in the morning, deeper mid morning to mid afternoon and shallow again in the evening. I tend drill a line of holes every ten to fifteen feet, fish between 5 feet and 15 feet. if your not seeing them keep moving. you should be seeing 5 to 10 fishing an hour, if not move
Hey slew reading ur post how deep are the wites ? I'm set up in 10 feet and seems to be we're everyone is ?cheers
by hammerhandle on Jan. 23, 2015
Awsome! I will give it a try, Thanks for the tip SLEW.
Forgot to mention give your lure a little squirt of WD40, not sure why it works it just does
Using a very small five of diamonds, smallest they make tipped with a maggot. I ran into this a few years ago fishing for perch and the whites just kept hitting it. Ever since then that is all I use for whites a sylvan, this does not work at Brownlows they don't like the five of diamonds
by hammerhandle on Jan. 22, 2015
Slew! What u getting all the whites on? I tried everything today with no luck. All color wire worms, maggots and more. Seen lots but they weren't interested. Hammered burbot on the tip up all day that's it. Never seen any pike or eyes
by Fishin4life on Jan. 22, 2015
I was at brownlows today and it was slowww. Had one pike hit on the tip up and no other bites. Didn't see anything on the cam either.
by slew on Jan. 22, 2015
I'm fishing brownlows on Saturday. I will be in the civic
Go to brownlows on gull if you want some good pike. Caught 4 monsters there a few days back. The perch are going crazy there too. And pretty easy.to limit out on the whites there. At sylvan the whites are cruising well but the eyes and pike are slow
Haven't fished sylvan in years and want to head there this weekend. Where's the hot spots at, and where's everyone caught their biggest pikes?
by Fishing.master on Jan. 22, 2015
What's your limit on whites slew!??
Nailed 2 burbot. Got 15 whites on the ice. Wife wants to go home so might be packing up and missing the afternoon bite. Whoa. Just tagged another burbot. Wife still wants to go. I'm leaving her at home tommorow. Will be back in the civic
Thanks. Ya stay away from eagle lake. My breath still smells. Hot action today for the whites. Got 10 on the ice. And now working to get the wife's limit. The grid worked great but bobcat a bit heavy and getting some good cracking on ice. Going to get my auger fixed and bring the civic back out tommorow.
by Fishchub on Jan. 22, 2015
Good luck slew! hope the fish outta sylvan taste better than eagle for ya!
Just getting suited up for a day on the lake, decided to wear white so I blend in and don't spook the fish. Mrs. Slew is wearing light blue so she blend in with sky when the fish look up the hole
by hammerhandle on Jan. 21, 2015
Right on SLEW! Ill be watching for the SOLID play by play!!!!
by slew on Jan. 21, 2015
Heading out in the am, will give some solid play by play thru out the day. Will be bringing my bobcat with auger to drill a 20ft x 20ft grid to pin the fish down.
by Steve93 on Jan. 21, 2015
Is anyone having any luck with whitefish? And what are you catching them on right now? Seeing lots but can't get them to bite
Ill even come drill your holes for free

Boy the whites are cruising at brownlows. Thank Peter for punching the holes. That's good sportsmanship. Got a bunch of whites on the ice. The eyes are not moving. Just about to have lunch. What's everybody having for lunch?
ThAnks to Reg for the holes. Just seen one about 2ft off the bottom. Might have been a sauger not sure

by beats on Jan. 17, 2015
Anyone on the ice with 3/4 or 1 ton trucks? Want to know if the ice is good enough for my 3/4 ton. Thanks guys!!!
Not sure of ice at re 23. Brownlows is ok. Heading out to get me some of the eyes. Will try and give some play by play today. Ie ice thickness hook selection, bait selection, fuel/oil mix for auger ( might try running it a bit leaner today). Anybody have luck running a lean fuel mix?

I've never been to sylvan lake because it's a bit far from where I live. But would really like to take my new wife there today for some offshore fishing. Can anyone help me out with some fishing spots? Any help is greatly appreciated!
by Pikster on Oct. 7, 2014
It's because we have a government that can't seem to manage anything. There are many lakes that are similar in Walleye population causing a huge imbalance in population. I'm starting to thing they are trying to create Walleye trophy lakes. I'm so frustrated and dont even know where to start.
by Tyjaygraham on Sep. 28, 2014
Can anyone shed some light into why the walleye limit is zero? Every time I go fishing the walleye are non stop. Caught 45 last night in 3 hours...don't keep them, but there is obviously an abundance of them...

if you go west all the way to rang road 23 and drive north there is a natural boat launch and a few people go there to catch pike and walleys some do really well pike up to 6 or 7 pound from shore and small walleys 2 pound or less
by Rapalaroland on May. 22, 2014
For all you sure fisherman Make sure that you really look at the regulations book and see where the closure is on Sylvan Lake for the walleye spawning. There are also signs posted at the marinas It is pretty much from the furthest tip out and nor Glenwall village all the way across to the pier that jumps out by the volleyball courts. DNR watch the marinas like hawks. It is closed from now until July 1
by Jaylive on May. 22, 2014
Yes for now
by bruno27 on May. 21, 2014
you are asking for place to fish from the shore right
by Jaylive on May. 21, 2014
Any decent places to fish off shore other than the peir this time of year? Just to avoid the crowds. If you don't want to post on the net you can text me at 519 566 0845. I'm kinda new to sylvan past summed iv had a boat so I didn't have this problem. Any info apprietiated! Thanks

Great day at sunbreaker, brother and i limited out on whites by 9:30.
by Hodderboys on Mar. 21, 2014
Spent 8hr day at sun breaker cover with my 5 yr old sun, he was a trooper even though we got skunked. He saw huge pike in hole but wouldn't bite. We saw whites,pike and walleye on camera and threw everything we had at them and they would check it out but no dice. Every hole I drilled today was 30" and we drove our f150 on the ice. Good luck to everyone fishing this weekend, final countdown has begun.
by Coleman on Mar. 13, 2014
Aprox 10 lb pike and one eye so far this morning. Seeing lots of whites on camera

by TheSylvanSpinner on Mar. 8, 2014
Bite is spotty
by Hodderboys on Mar. 7, 2014
Spent the day at sun breaker cove, started 200yds off shore in deep water where I saw couple white fish swimming just under the ice but not interested in anything I put in front of them. I then moved to about 100yds off shore directly off boat launch where I came across some walleye got one to hole but he got off, then I saw several nice pike in about 10 ft water but they were not interested either. Barely busted through ice with hand auger, handle was pretty close to ice when it finally went through.

If you wanna catch some big pike for fun, head to badger lake. There are some big monsters and amazing they are caught in 4ft of water.
by Rapalaroland on Mar. 3, 2014
I disagree with the overfishing of these lakes lots of people come out here and don't catch a thing. Yes the lakes do get heart hit hard but they are definitely not overfished. Just because there is a bunch of traffic on the lake doesn't mean everybody's catching fish and a lot of those people are just out there hanging out snowmobiling,ATVing. having a fire and a hotdog roast on the lake ect..... The conservation officers are doing everything that they can to help control the population like at Gull ake dropping the whitefish limit from 5 to 3 is one way. I do however agree with closing down the big pike population which are your spawning fish and only keeping the smaller ones.
by MarkDykstra on Mar. 2, 2014
Hey not to familiar with the lake where would be a good spot for perch I Have never caught one before and everyone says its fun looking to come up next monday the 10th
by BoBo on Mar. 2, 2014
Hello Eco yup I agree I think both Sylvan and Gull lake are way over fished and the amount of fish caught is WAY down. I still see lots of people post there catching lots of fish at Sylvan and Gull which is great but I am a seasoned fishermen and I go with 3 other gents al the time to Sylvan and Gull and we catch very few fish. It's not that we don't know what we're doing it's just these two lakes are extremely over fished. I also think Fish and Wildlife have it completely backwards we should release any Pike over 63CM and keep the smaller ones as the bigger ones are the ones that reproduce so were keeping the wrong ones. Also I think they should go to a zero limit for a few years at these two lakes to help the numbers. I have talked to many of the older fishermen and they all agree the numbers are way down from years past. Case in point 20 years ago when one went to Brownlows there would 20 trucks on the ice on a Saturday now there is 200 plus. Great to see fishing has become so popular however fish populations has suffered because of it. Some fishermen do still report great luck at these two lakes which is awesome I just wish they would send some luck my way hehehehe.
by Eco on Mar. 2, 2014
Curious if people think Sylvan is being over fished? Any plans to stock more fish? Used to go out and catch a bunch, been skunked a few times this year.
by Wdafxup on Feb. 27, 2014

Wdafxup, where are the perch hiding? Used to catch them all the time. haven't seen any come out for years!!
by mikeprusak on Feb. 26, 2014
Hey rapala thanks for the advice.
Im assuming a wire worm and maggot will work as usual, am I right?
Am I looking for a certain depth?
by Rapalaroland on Feb. 25, 2014
Norglenwold is pretty good fishing been hammering whites there.
by iFish Guest on Feb. 25, 2014
Should I go up rr 23.
Or are there other better spots
by Wdafxup on Feb. 25, 2014
Minnows or magots.
Looking for some a good place to fish. Never been to this lake before. Looking for some nice size pike, or whites.
Any ideas on locations and bait tips.

Headed onto west side off the lake today off range road 20. Got one decent white fish. Had my camera in the water and saw a few other fish lurking in the shadows but weren't too interested. Tried everything in my tackle box but no luck. It was a good day fishing ,nice weather kids had fun and my wife enjoyed playing with the new underwater camera.
by iFish Guest on Feb. 16, 2014
I use a camera all the time and it does not bother the fish at all. Some even swim right up to it i just drill a hole 5-10 feet away from the hut and put it down there. I use a aqua-vu micro 5
by Rapalaroland on Feb. 16, 2014
U don't need it when fishing in 7 ft or shallower I choose not to use it
by Walleye Seeker on Feb. 16, 2014
About camera scaring white. Why do not you try turning your camera to look down then keep the camera as high as you can,out of the way of the whites. May help??
by Wdafxup on Feb. 14, 2014
Sunbreaker cove is a honey hole when it comes to burbot... My biggest one was at RR 23 but the other side of the lake you see one almost every day... I've always had good luck with minnows. Have em a foot or less off the bottom, even right off bottom since those guys are always scanning pickin up anything they see... And I mean anything.. Just remember that you can't keep them after Feb 1st
by GS1 on Feb. 13, 2014
Wdafxup, I'm looking for some help with burbot. Could you point me in the right direction of where to catch them when they spawn? What type of structures am i looking for?

I've lived in Sylvan Lake my whole life, been ice fishing here for the last 3-4 years... Pike, whitefish, burbot, perch.. I love em all... Walleye are just annoying. Always looking for people to fish and chat with I'm glad I got the app

Planning on heading out in the morn, does anyone know the ice thickness out from rr23?
by Cdhaugrud on Jan. 31, 2014
Any luck in deeper water? Went out a ways ended up in about 20 ft of water. Tried for a bit- no action. Maybe I'm not patient enough? Have been usually fishing in about 6-12ft, seeing lots of action down hole, but no fish on ice yet this winter. Any suggestions?
Ice Report: 20 inOut from RR23, that was the minimum thickness of any holes we drilled. Used a tape to measure.
Hello fellow anglers, my two cents on cameras scaring whites, as soon as they show up on screen turn off camera. As for pike perch burbot
thanks rapalaroland. hope you have some luck at cold lake would love to hear you bring in a monster laker. thanks for the directions curtis and colby
by Rapalaroland on Jan. 30, 2014
Sorry fellas heading to cold lake to chase lakers for a few days. To access the lake from Calgary take hwy 2 to hwy 11 head west just past the Cusamo Grain elevators then north on rr 23 to the lake go on the lake and head right fish by the shacks
by iFish Guest on Jan. 30, 2014
hi rapalaroland its curtis and colby here. you said to get on sylvan to take rr23 is that the town access or is it still ok to go on there. we are planning to go out there possibly saturday would like to know if your gonna be out at sylvan saturday we would like to meet you there . if not we might just go back to gull lake. thanks rapalaroland and hope to hear from you .
The town access point is shutdown. The rest of the access points are good to go on the ice at your own discretion.

by iFish Guest on Jan. 27, 2014
Thanks Roland next time I'm out at Sylvan or Gull I'm going to try without my camera and see how I do and I suspect it will be better. I suspected that was the problem.
I rented one of RapalaRolands shacks on the weekend.Great setup you have yourself. I took my two sons 5&7 and they really enjoyed themselves. Loved watching on the big screen the fish swim up to their hooks and take the bait!!! They both managed to catch 4 fish each. He then shut the camera off and showed them that u don't need a camera to catch fish!!i thought this was really a neat way to show my boys that technology isn't always the best thing when u have knowledge. His knowledge of what's going on in the lake is exceptional!!! Great experience and would recommend his rentals to all.thank you again Roland and we will see you again soon. Barry N and sons Calgary AB
by Rapalaroland on Jan. 27, 2014
I use camera too but not for whites. They have extremely sensitive lateral lines in their bodies and the cameras emit and electromagnetic pulse that the whites can pick up and they don't seem to bite as well.I have caught them on camera but its not near as good as when u don't use it!!

hey rapala was just wondering where abouts on sylvan your fishing?
by Rapalaroland on Jan. 26, 2014
The white fish are really starting to fire up at Sylvan!!!!
by iFish Guest on Jan. 25, 2014
Hello fellow fishermen and I could use your opinion on something. I have been fishing whites for 35 years and have caught my fair share of whites over the years but last winter I bought a fishing camera and after a few trips out I am convinced white fish are scared of the camera. I drill two holes 3 feet apart in my tent and I have no issues with the Pike or perch but the whites come within a couple of feet of my hook then turn away. I have tried a bunch of different hooks but it don't work. I see a ton of whites on the camera but nothing comes within 2 feet of my hook so it has to be the camera. Has anyone else had the same problem?
by Rapalaroland on Jan. 25, 2014
No I have not caught any jumbo whites in Sylvan just regular white fish. A big one out of Sylvan is 2 1/2 pounds The ones out of Sylvan Lake taste a lot better than the ones out of Gull ake I find. The meet is a lot firmer not so mushy.

Took a 4 Seat Rzr on the lake today. Stayed anywhere from 20 to 50 yards from shore. In places there was about 16 - 17" of snow and slush. Checked the ice periodically as we went along and found there to be varying depths of ice. 10" to 15". Fished about 100 yards from shore and there was about 8" of ice and 2" of water under the snow. Caught 2 small walleye in 2 hours of fishing.

Funny how that works, I was there last night and only managed 3 Walleye.
The Pike bite however was ON! 6 over keeper size and 4 hammer handles (all released).
The biggest surprise was a nice fat Burbot on a smelt under a slip float in only 3 FOW! He was delicious BTW...lol.
Sounds like a great day Roland, Congrats!

Thx Schnidy for the info. Interesting that u used big lures the size of a small walley. I suppose that eliminated walley & u target only pike & possibly large pike.
by Schnidy on Sep. 4, 2013
I got the pike by the last set of weeds just after the last marina. I was In fairly deep water but could still just see those weeds that stretch up from the bottom! Used big lures tho! The ones we used were almost the size of the little walleyed we were catching
by iFish Guest on Sep. 3, 2013
Went out today, stay at lakeshore pier for couple of hours, didn't catch anything, not even a bite :(. Anyone have a better idea?

Hey Schnidy, where did you catch the pike? How deep? Trolling? I caught a bunch of walley @ 20 ft outside weed bed off 23 but no pike.
by Schnidy on Aug. 25, 2013
It was a great day on the water today! Seemed like anywhere you put a jig and minnow down the walleye were hitting, the pike where a lot harder to track down but was able to land a 13lb an 11lb and a 6lb. They were the only three we caught all day.

Doyle don't broadcast the free boat launch haha. I've caught quite a few decent walleye on Sylvan this summer but they're not as big on average as they are at Pigeon. Not many small pike lurking which is good for the walleye numbers, but most of the pike that are in the lake are huge. Friend just got a 20+ pounder the other day (he swears it was over 25 lbs but he didn't have a scale with him to verify). Pic was really nice though! Watching the flyboard folks on this lake is pretty cool too.

Oakman, there are only a few lakes in AB where that can even happen and I actually beleive the person. Sylvan is not one of them. I've only been lucky enough to see one 30lber, but many almost 30. They don't come from Sylvan. Like to see some pictures with a landmark in the background. Maybe all the perch will come back and the alberta record walleye will magically appear from Sylvan too!

Here's a document on Ice weight capacities produced by the government of Manitoba. Take into consideration the Ice texture and thickness compare with the chart. Here the site http://www.gowalleye.com/ice_test_info.pdf. This document clearly describes what ice properties you need to consider before entering a unknown sheet of ice!! Remember ice conditions can change by the day week and definitely by the month! Climate, snow pack, water temp and currents as well as fresh and hot water springs all have an effect on ice thickness and must be considered when determining ice safety!! Current ice conditions are displaying a rating of well over 10,000lbs!! Play safe everyone!

by Curt j on Aug. 23, 2012
some people and thier fish stories. At least make it believable.
Once again good luck on findin a trophy at Sylvan.( one 20lber in 30+ years now that's believable )
by Buster11 on Aug. 22, 2012
We have fished Sylvan since the early 80's and only ever caught one pike over 20 lbs on a 5 of diamonds size 1, jigs work for walleye and perch are better caught in winter through the ice.
by Wayne on Aug. 10, 2012
Mitch1234 posted sept 29 2011 that he caught a pike over 36 lbs.
I would consider that trophy status. Mitch if you see this post, I would like to see photos of your fish and discuss other details of your catch. Thanks.Wayne firstname.lastname@example.org
by Curt j on Aug. 10, 2012
Try Keho or Newell, you won't find trophies at sylvan that's for sure.
by Wayne on Aug. 9, 2012
I will be working through the fall right on the water near sunbreaker cove. I will be in search of trophy size pike in my spare time. Or should I say fishing and working in my spare time! I am an avid Muskie fisherman from southern Ontario. And am considering bringing some large lures with me. Can anyone provide some tips or tactics. Thanks

by tyger on Mar. 6, 2012
hey thanks aswell Roland. i am thinkn i am going out for one last tie in the ice this weekend may try rainy creek area then 1111
by Wild west Wilverine on Mar. 2, 2012
Thanks for the tips Roland, don't know if I'll get out there again this winter but good to know for next freeze
by RapalaRoland on Feb. 29, 2012
For the whites I go 2 rr24 off rainy creek rd and fish off the first point on the left. There is a nice grassbed there only about 6 ft deep. Use a pale green or black wireworm. As 4 the perch I will keep that a secret. All I can say is go deep and a ice sonar is a great helper. Happy fishing and best of luck 2 ya!!!
by Wild west Wilverine on Feb. 29, 2012
Roland what were you catching the whites and perch on and where abouts, was out on Saturday and didn't even get about between four lines
Got limit of whites on Feb 28 morning. Then went on a search 4 perch!! have only caught 3 to 6 inchers there before.Some of the older fellas I've chatted with say that there are big ones in there. And yep if ya drill enough holes throughout the year u will eventually find them.Took home 5 that were all around 12 inches woo hoo!!!!

by Tino on Jan. 29, 2012
Fished west of sun breaker cove today. 8' deep. Walleye's very selective stepped it down to whitefish rigs and found what they needed. All sizes with a few nice size eyes. Couldn't cash in on the monster pike on patrol.
by BigACE on Jan. 14, 2012
Burnstick lake has a 1.5 ft of water on top of the ice, just about broke through on the quad. Stay away from the east side of the under water island in the center of the lake look on satellite images on google you will see the island. Strait out from the cabin boat launch to the south east. 60 plus ft. Of water here, play safe!!!
by Chadillac on Jan. 9, 2012
I fished the west side of the lake and had good success. Mostly in the morning and evening. Through the day is on an off. I mostly use mr twisters and jig and reel about 60-100 ft out from shore. Mostly small walleye but the odd good sized pike. Around 11 am I caught a 100 cm, 17-20 pound jack fish. Awesome fish but had a wound on the back that looked like a boat prop or something. I released it and hopefully someone else catches it healthy and enjoys the fight =P
Happy fishing! Cheers
by Repaid Roland on Jan. 7, 2012
