Mille Lacs

1 post in this topic

Just got back from a long weekend of fishing on Mille Lacs Lake. What an awesome experience!!! Went up there with a couple of buddies. Once again, Nitti's outdid themselves. George certainly does his best to put you on fish. We ended up bringing our limit of 'box' fish home. We also threw back many healthy 'eyes.' Among them were 2 26"'s and a 25 1/2". Also caught a handful 10 - 12 inchers, which is a great sign for years to come. Pretty much split up our fish between 3 mile and the 'boot.' We pretty much get blown off of the lake Sunday night when that 'little' wind came through frown.gif, Lucas got a little bounced around on the ride back in frown.gif, but that's ok, cause Lucas likes to fish. Blackie certainly had himself a good time too, as he caught the most fish smile.gif. Blackie and Lucas also had a pretty good time at Jack's after the fishing was done blush.gif.

I just found this cool website, and I'll certainly be checking it out on a regular basis. I'd also like to get some advise about fishing the 'big lake' from anybody who knows it well.

      We are looking to take the boat out for maybe the last time as a family.  Any advice on where to try this time of year?  We were thinking of Pearl.  We went to Grand a few weeks ago and it was really green, not sure if that cleared up now or what.   Any help would be great!  We don't care what we are catching, however Crappies would be great!

      Heading out again shortly.  Quick report from yesterday.  It was inconsistent for us. That's probably because it's my first attempt on Vermilion ever after labor day.  4 of us spent our day vertical jigging with a little lead core mixed in.   We kept 11 and had a couple 23-26" fish.  We never really found a big pod. Almost everything was caught jigging. Trolling was tough although i know it's been a good trolling bite yet.  Depending on the spot we fished 24'out to 40'. I'll have another report tonight.

      Hudson area report.  Fished yesterday morning with a buddy from 8:30 till 2:30 and found some active fish.  Water temp was around 54 degrees.  Speed right around 2.2 mph.  Same program of snap weights and scatter raps.  Caught around a dozen eyes/saugers, 1 surprise 18 smallie, and 1 white bass.  Keeper eyes/saugers went 15, 16 17, 19 and one around 20.  Best water seemed to be between 24 and 27 feet of water.  Good luck out there.  
      This site has really tanked, and I haven't been on here for about a year, but I felt compelled to fill some of my old duck blind buddies in on the latest happenings in NW Minnesota. From what I can see we've really hit that Late October lull time.  The vast majority of our local birds pulled out with that big full moon, and the cool clear nights last week.  I've been back and forth across the countryside quite a bit, and I'm seeing very few migratory waterfowl in the area. With temps being what they are, and now that everything has dried out quite a bit up here, the majority of our farm fields have been cultivated and turned up black.  Pretty balmy now for this time of year.  I wouldn't expect any kind of big migration over the next week or so, but I'd imagine a few will start trickling down out of Canada here and there. I hear things are going pretty well out in the Dakotas.  Prolly smart to head over there if you really wanna get into birds.  Just not much to speak of at all right now in Northwest Minnesota.
