miltona

5 posts in this topic

I have a cabin on irene and was thinking about trying miltona this weekend. I've never fished the lake before. Was looking at a few different maps and was just looking for some general information. Seems there are a lot of sunken islands and was thinking about focusing primarily on that with some lindy rigs, slip bobbers at dusk etc. Good starting point or should i be focusing more towards shore structure, (weedlines, points etc) thanks a lot

At this time of year I have much better luck on the shoreline structure. Look for weedlines and fish tight to them. There is alot of steep structure, focus on the slower dropping edges with weedlines. Was just up there last week and did real well. Pretty windy but good fishing.

I'd start out with the Lindy's so you can move around some. If you find a pod of them then you can switch to bobbers if you want to.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
