Got out this morning before 7 and fished til 10, found a few crappies right off the bat and a few nice gill as well. Didn't last very long and had to move, working the weeds anywhere from 8 ft. out to 12 ft. Kept moving and found the crappies again but only for a short time, started picking up a few small bass and a occasional perch, but had to keep moving.  Largest Crappie was just over 11in. and the smallest was 9in. had to work for them today. Small pink jig with small fatheads under slip bobber on one pole and casting chartreuse jig with twister tail with fathead on the other pole. A lot of short hits and misses on both jigs, oh well nice cool morning just to be out on the water, it still beats going to work. Good Luck and stay safe.

Walleye, I’m sure not a Silver Lake expert but have fished it a dozen times or so. Weedlines are key (no surprise) especially along the long, steep SW shoreline (opposite the DNR launch). Edges of holes, especially the one you run into coming out of the channel of the DNR launch. As on most lakes, my usual go-to presentation is a wacky rigged Senko. The picture below is from Silver last summer, caught in 14’ of ftnat SW shoreline. Overall, nice Lake but not my favorite for numbers of bass.

Was on Silver today for the first time.... nice lake. More weeds than I anticipated. We managed 2 northern, 2 bass, and a perch. Was on the water for about 8 hours. 

All suggestions previously give by lake linkers for where to get bait and where to eat, were right on the money... thank you. 

Any suggestions to put more fish in the boat on future trips would be greatly appreciated.

Went out this morning, only had a few hours to fish. Fished from 6-9, under the full moon when I got there. Managed to only catch Bass and gills today. Played around with some jigs and small fatheads, Largest Bass went 16in. Bluegills were all decent, 7 to 8 inchers. Beautiful morning, cool and calm and not many weeds floating like last week. Bass all caught in the weeds around 6-8 ft. of water and gills all out in 10-12 ft. along the weed lines.Pink seemed to be the hot color for the gills.  Good Luck and Stay Safe.

Headed to Silver on Thursday. Does anyone know of a place near the launch that sells minnows?

Any fishing tips would be greatly appreciated. This will be my first time on the lake. Not planning on keeping anything.

Feel free to message me.

Thanks in advance.

How has the fishing been on Silver now that the weather has finally cooled down a bit?

I went out early, caught a bunch of northerns. 3 big ones and some medium sizers, only a couple bass. Was surprised i got as much action with the 77 degree water temps. Cold temps are coming maby the musky action will pick up soon.
