Fire Flies?????

2 posts in this topic

On Mille lacs last night south end of lake and while fighting off the caddis and mayflys we noticed what appeared to be fire flys floating in the water and not just on the surface they seemed to be under the water also blinking just like fireflys do. Anybody have any answers? I've been fishing mille lacs since 1960 or so and have never seen this (no its not a acid flash back) The fishing was slow, by the way! 2-27s and 1-17

Eelpout,

I was fishing on 8-mile sunday night and we noticed the same thing. We assumed fire flies but as you said many were below the surface and flashing. I would be curious to hear if they are anything other than fire flies. We ended up boating 23 fish Sunday evening on bobbers and leeches. How was the south end.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
