Kwik tips

3 posts in this topic

I'm goona be passing through on Thurs., driving up north for the weekend. I figured I might as well spend a few hours on Mille Lacs, I'm in no hurry. I was wondering how the bite has been on the west side and any other qwick tips that might steer me into the direction of a walleye. I have only fished mille lacs a few times and have never done to well. Any advise would help. Thanks

The bite has still been good even with the mayfly hatch and the weather that came through this last week. I had a guide on wed. evening and we were able to keep 7 slots and pulled a 29 incher which was released. I have three guides this week and will give more detail after I do those trips, but for a few spots try Sloppys on the edges in 29+ ft of water with 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.


This was from Hunter Winfields post on another thread. should be able to pick up fish out on the mud with 8-10' lindy with red hook or move a little faster with a spinner rig...gold when cloudy and silver if sunny. work in and out until you locate the fish.

      Sorry I forgot to put their phone #.  218-385-3385. Ask for Dan or Bonnie.   Hope this helps.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
