The pier is out. Water temp was 50 degrees this morning and got up to almost 52 by 2pm

Is there still a decent musky population in this lake? I heard a few years back the DNR removed a majority of the population.

Got out late morning. Headed up wind to the South side and let the wind do the work. Broke out my Musky gear to start and picked up a 32" Northern on a Buchertail. Headed back up the shoreline and switched to Bass gear(threw White swimbait and spinnerbait). Picked up a few more snake Northern on the spinnerbait. No bass on the swimbait. Drove to the North shoreline and drifted that. One more snake northern and no bass. Water Temps were high 60's.
Got out this morning from 9am til 12noon targeting Crappies, took about 40 minutes and a few small gills before I found the first one, 9incher. Using yellow and pink Mini-Mites tipped with berkley crappie bites. Fishing with a 10 foot Crappie stick and vertical jigging weed lines and pockets in 10 to 13 feet of water. Fish were very close to the bottom, seems like you had to put it right in front of them. Hard to stay in one spot with the wind, had to really work for them. Caught a few nice bass as well, which put up a good fight on a 10 foot poll. Managed 3 gills, 8 Crappies, and 3 bass along with about 6 or 7 lost fish. Water temp ranged from 67.2 to 68.5 lot of weeds floating around out there. GOOD LUCK and STAY SAFE EVERYONE.

Tough day on silver, yet again. We casted just about everything in the arsenal, and drowned some minnows. Caught a few small pike, couple little bass, and tiny perch. So while we caught some fish, everything was very small. I’m sure there are some nice ones in there, just haven’t found them in my few times on this lake. Still can’t beat a day on the water.
Heading up to Silver early next week. Looking for pike and bass. All catch and release for us. Anyone been out lately? Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. PM me if you prefer. Thanks in advance
Thanks for the tip Veteran2 - much appreciated!
Large gills and pumpkin seeds can be caught through the fall on a slip bobber just above the weeds and just off the weed line, with a crawler. Bass and an occasional walleye will also be happy to take this offering.

Was out last Friday, very windy but did manage 3 LMB (largest 16.5”) & 3 Pike (largest 22.5”) - all on plastic & swim baits between 8-12’. Also 2 bonus warmouth.
Hoping the Fall fishing starts to pick up - has anyone done well in the Fall on Silver in the past?
Thank you gentlemen
