Mille Lacs?

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys, doing a 3-day end of the year before college trip with the guys, and I'm hoping to make it great. So what are the muskies biting on? Where're they at? As in specifics (reefs, weed beds, flats, etc) and what part of the lake? Any other tips you guys have? Thanks as always guys!

Boy, I sure hope it picks up soon. The fish are there but success has been spotty for most. No real pattern that I'm aware of right now. I'm more and more convinced that we have less control over whether we catch fish over a given short period of time than we like ot think. It's all about timing. Sure you need to be persistent and creative and try lots of stuff, but there are just days you're not going to get 'em no matter what you do. And hopefully you run into that day or two when you can't seem to do anything wrong and get bit several times. Those days are too few and far between unfortunately.

Mille Lacs has really had a difficult bite this summer. My personal opinion is that many of the fish are still in open water. I've been having alot of success open water trolling on many of the other area lakes. Shoreline and structure fish are either coming at night, or they're coming at sun and moon peak times. Of course, open water trolling on Mille Lacs opens up a whole new can of worms...!

Just curious....... Any word of the launches or walleye guys catching any muskies out on the flats? 100,000+ acres of no mans land would be tough to cover, that's for sure!

Last time out there we thought about killin some time mid-day on the flats for walleyes, but couldn't bring ourselves to do it. Hunter says next time we do he's going to throw some big dawgs down there. You know there's some pigs lurking around there somewhere, but talk about your needle in a haystack.

    • Update   I was able to get an extension kit from Tim's Outboard! Couldn't believe it, I checked all over the internet and local shops and NOBODY had the right one for my motor, but Tim's was able to dig one up. It was a great price too, much less than I expected to pay. They shipped it out to me and I'll be installing it on Sunday. Thanks to swamptiger for the suggestion!
    •    Whether, for examples, it's the Trumper's silence, and sometimes support of, his proposed stimulus spending after opposing BHO's, or war protesters largely absent while BHO intervenes in the Middle East after 6 years of massive protest marches when GWB did, or this story, I guess it's up to the observer to decide how much of this so called outrage you've seen in the last several decades has been really based on true principles or just party politics. The press has promised to scrutinize Trump. Great. I expect that. The problem is they've lost their credibility with the rabble so the rabble are left with trying to figure out which institution is telling the truth or pulling our legs   I suppose the one positive to come from the Trump presidency is the left will now become concerned with things like fiscal responsibility, Executive Branch overreach, and interventionism in the Middle East. Not that I wouldn't welcome their  conversions once again to the aforementioned issues after taking a hiatus the last 8 years. But, better late than never, I guess

      24 Feb 2017 at 10:44 ET                        CPAC attendees wave Russian flags with the word "TRUMP" written on the front.   Staffers at CPAC quickly scrambled to confiscate Russian flags with the word “TRUMP” on the front that were being waved by attendees during President Donald Trump’s speech on Friday. The trouble began when some attendees took out pro-Trump flags to wave during the president’s speech that also happened to have the same white-blue-and-red striped pattern as Russian’s official flag.
