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.

    • 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.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
