Mille Lacs?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
