How do you fish miltona and what can I expect as far as weeds and structure? Thanks I've never been there and am headed there in August for hopefully some muskie action. Any help would be appreciated.

Lots of structure out there and by August there will be a few weed choked areas. Not a lake you want to fish without a GPS and a chip. It's a tough lake to fish. I have spent many grueling days out there with little to no success. To be honest, for me to keep a good attitude when I fish Miltona, I go on the lake never expecting to catch much. So, when I don't catch anything I'm not as disappointed. There are times though when it can surprise you. The pressure from muskie boats has at least quadrupled in the last 3-4 years.

Lots of structure is an understatement!!! There are weedlines all around the outside of the lake. Most of them are pretty clean weeds with good break lines on them. You can also go out in the middle of the lake and fish on the flats. Tons of structure there. DH had it right...you need a chip in your locator to read all of the different structure and stay on it. If you are looking for a very quick learning curve, hire Brad Hoppe from Musky Mayhem. He has been on this lake for a very long time and knows it probably as well if not better than anyone.

Hey guys - Headed out there tomorrow morning for the first time. How's the north access for space, etc? Looks like its gravel, which is fine as long as there are open spots early on in the morning.

I got some spots marked to hit so we are ready to roll, hopefully some better action then around here as of late. Thanks for any info on the access.

Not sure what you mean by north access and gravel because I have never used that one. The best access on the lake is on the east side of the lake. Lots of parking, but it can fill up pretty fast on weekends at times. There can be a lot of muskie boats some days and there is always a ton of walleye boats out there. If you get there early you should be fine. If not, people park along the road all the time. Good luck.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
