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.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
