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.

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
