Walleye Bite 6/18

3 posts in this topic

The bite has still been good even with the Mayfly hatch, and the weather that came through this last week.

I had a guide trip on Wednesday evening and we were able to keep 7 slots and we pulled a 29 incher which was released.

I have three guides trips this week so I will give a more detailed report after I do those trips... but for a few spots try: Sloppy's, on the edges, in 29+ ft of water with a hammered copper and silver crawler harnesses, the Gravel Bar with lindy's, slips and blades, Bannana Reef with slips around 20-25ft in the evening, and mud edges in front of Izaty's Resort in 30ft of water during the day with slips and lindy's.

Thanks for the report! I was up on Saturday, and don't think I've ever seen so many boats on Mille Lacs. Went to the mud, and boy were the bugs bad! Made fishing somewhat unpleasant if that's possible. I would say the bite has slowed some with the bug hatch, but still good. They may not be jumping in the boat anymore though from here on out. How'd everyone else find the bite this weekend?

I caught 11 on Saturday. Kept 2. Biggest was 26. Out on the mud and the bugs were irritating. I even cranked up a 24 incher on a Reefrunner in 30 feet when they wouldn't respond to the lindy rig and leech. I fished from 5:30 am until 1:00 pm so I did OK. The best bite was the last place I fished and hated to leave with the consistent action.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
