Fished Mille Lacs today

Recommended Posts

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...........

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
