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.

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
