dickies on mille lacs on 1/26-1/28

Recommended Posts

six of us stayed at a worn down,cold,drafty,and fishless shack,approx 1-1/2 miles out from breakers!rockie,flat bottom in about 14-19 ft of water.we had the vexlar,and aquaview.

four of us hired two well-known guides for four hours,(left out of hunters)and still did not pull out any fish!!

midnight-2a.m. on the last day,we had two eelpoor(typo i'm sure)hit our rattle reels we installed due to the ones in the shack that were broken.

any information on what/where we might of went wrong would be appreciated?

we would come back next year if things were different?

Welcome to Fishing Minnesota. Next year I would just watch the reports on the forums and you will see where the quality resorts are. One has to also remember that when a front comes through that even the guides cannot make the fish bite. They can put you on structure that is and has been good with all the right equipment but, if the fish shut down then it wont matter who guides you.

I have heard of other reports from fisherman that they had cooler than normal houses this past weekend with all the wind and cooler temps.

Sometimes things just dont work out liked planned. The weather has many times messed up a trip to the pond for myself.

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
