Fished Mille Lacs today

4 posts in this topic

Well I said I would post up some results from the fishing today on Mille Lacs. While we had a good day (saw a bunch of fish) it wasn't a great day (didn't land any). We started out on the north end at 0500 this morning. Had a smallish muskie follow up not long after we started. Caught a northern as well. Both of those came on a Suick. That was all for the north end. Motored our way down to the south end of the lake and started fishing rock reefs. Only thing that the rocks produced was a follow by a smallmouth and a big walleye. The walleye followed and tried to kill a 10 inch Manta. Finally gave up on the rocks and sought out the weeds. Once we found the weeds, we found the fish. In all we saw 10 fish and had one hookup that didn't work out. Basically everything was working......we raised fish on Eagletails, Suicks, HellHounds, and Lifelike Perch. Biggest fish that we got up to the boat was pushing the 47-48" mark. Even with the wind out of the north the lake was pretty calm. Running all the way from the south end to the north end was actually a nice ride......and you can't say that very often on the Big Pond. Looking forward to getting out there again! whistle

Thanks for the report Bret! At least you are seeing fish, so not that all bad. How was the traffic on the lake? A lot of standers (muskie fishermen) out there? I'll be hitting Mille Lacs hard starting in a couple weeks like the rest.

I was really surprsied at the amount of traffic on the lake. It was minimal at best!! We saw a couple of guys punching skies, but the majority were fishing eyes (unless they were jigging for muskies). 7 and 8 mile flat were covered with walleye guys and that is where we saw most of the boats. We got off the lake at 1230, so they muskie guys might have come out later...........

    •   Please feel free to elaborate and educate me.   With or without personal attacks. 
    • Waterfront is now called dockside and they are open.  Not sure about tournaments, we don't participate in them because, not fans of what they can do to fish populations.  All these lakes in the area have far to many tournaments which contribute to hurtful results. 
    •  You are like Charles Oakley. Except without any of the the daunting physical attributes and replaced with the voice of Fran Drescher.   Your question is garbage and that's why it's unanswered.  
    •   You can feel free to answer this question too if you like. 
    •   So conversely, decreasing the supply of labor increases the compensation for all the participants in that sector, and increases the cost of the products and services they deliver.    
    •   22 hours ago, Big Dave2 said: As a Christian you would rather see human beings starve or live a difficult and dangerous life when there are prosperous jobs sometimes only a few hundred miles away in American cities, just because that person had the misfortune of being born on one side of a political border? Does your God recognize these borders?   That's to bad. Dave's gone off the deep end and now arguing with himself!
    • I like to chop bacon into tiny pieces and add to the hamburger. But of course juicy lucy's are always good too....    
    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!
    • Dumba possibly back tomorrow night. 2-3 more turnovers in our own zone to deal with.
    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
