Hey everybody. I am looking for any advice possible here. Here is my situation, me and my brother and a couple buddies usually take a week long trip to Canada every year, but because of some things that couldn't be worked out we will not be going this year. However, my brother and I are going to take a 7-10 day statewide trip. We are from northwest Minnesota and we're looking to explore some of the wonderful fishing the rest of the state has to offer. We will definately hit Mille Lacs one day, but would appreciate any other lakes you guys would suggest. We will be fishing primarily for walleye and bass (large or smallmouth). Thanks a lot guys, LaVoi

If you have not fished it, you really must give Leech a try. I never tire of fishing Leech, even though I live on the Clearwater chain myself.

Also, there are a bunch of good bass lakes that rim the Mille Lacs basin. If you don't want to fish the big lake, there are a bunch of small ones to explore.

Bay Lake used to be good for Bass when we had a cabin there 80's to early 90's. Also if you want to have some fun try the Horseshoe chain near Richmond. Then you can also hit Rice and Koronis. I saw some nice smallies come out of Koronis last year.

Hey lavoi,
If your gonna be in the mille lacs area you must make a stop in crosby's serpent lake. This lake is ranked in the top 10 walleye lakes in Minnesota by the DNR. My dad grew up there so I get up there a couple times of year to visit family, what a great excuse to fish huh! Everytime I want to fish Mille Lacs or serpent or brainerd lakes I can say I'm goin to visit family! Serpent is full of structure before you go I would reccomend getting a detailed map and making a game plan. The lake is so full of walleye that the Minnesota Walleye Trail is having their championship there. Here is the excerpt from their site about the lake "Monsters in the depths? Very likely. Walleyes from ten different year classes were present in the last lake survey. Ten year old walleyes qualify as Monsters in our book! This exceptionally clear body of water is 1,057 acres in size and has holes down to 65 ft deep. It's ranked among the top ten in the state for walleyes by the DNR. September means cooling water temps and changing fishing patterns as walleyes begin to put on the feedbag of fall. Can you put 2 solid days together, back to back, and win the MWT Championship?" Here is their site if you want more info about their trail: polebender.com
ok, well wherever you go good luck!
And I'm sure wherever you go you will catch fish after all with 10,000 lakes how can you go wrong!
-Mr. Fisherman

    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
