Monday the 11th ideas?

2 posts in this topic

I, along with one brother, a nephew and my oldest son who is 10, are heading to Mille Lacs tomorrow (Monday the 11th) to give it a try for the first time. With southerly winds predicted in the mid teens, we plan on staying near the south end. What are good places to launch on that end and what type of structure should we target? Also, what techniques are good at that time of day? We will probably start around 4:30 pm and fish until 10 pm or so.

Thanks for any advice!

FishingPops,

At Hunter Winfield's we can launch upto 30 footers easily. $10 access fee.

It's been best to target mud and gravel, 22-28 FOW on reefs such as Otto's, 2nd reef off Izaty's, Hennepin and Spirit Islands or Graveyard... leechs and slips at night w/ red or pink hooks.

Good luck out there.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
