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.

    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
