Mille Lacs Sat nite?

5 posts in this topic

Anybody else fish ML sat eve or nite? I got on the water about 8:00 pm, I thought it might be perfect with still warm air, sunset, moonset a bit later, possible storms later that night or the next day, etc. Quite a few boats, but I had no action and saw no other fish caught either. Then at dark a freak wind blew up out of nowhere, everybody else skedaddled, and I stuck it out until 4:00 am. It did calm down quite a bit, but still no action. Anybody do anything and I was just not on the fish, or was it truly a tough bite? Makes you wonder sometimes if the environmental influences really do have that great an effect after a nite like that.

I fished quite a few spots friday night and nothing doing for us or any boats around us.

Fish are on the primary break around weeds, IME. Everything else is a bust so far for me. They should be moving to rocks now.

A buddy and I were out Thurs night/Friday morning, and Friday night/Saturday morning till about 3am both nights...nothing. Fished out of SE bays the first night, then the north end second night. Saw one fish porpose before sundown Friday, but otherwise nothing. Didn't see any other boats bag anything either.

Talked to one boat around sundown Friday, and they said they had 15 follows all day, but when we talked to them they hadn't seen anything in a couple hours. Guessing that's when the wind subtly shifted out of the east.

We fished shallow sand, weed edges, weed edges with steep breaks. Nothing.

Threw the box at them.

Friday was a beautiful night on the north end. Saw a ton of shooting stars.

    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
