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.

    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!
