Fishing Mille Lacs

6 posts in this topic

I'm new here so I hope it is not considered inappropriate to ask members where and how to fish. I am going to Mille Lacs on Thursday for the first time in two years. Probably will put the boat in at the south end (Cove Bay), but could go anywhere. Will fish from about 4:00 PM until whenever. I have a GPS and have already input the coordinates for many of the spots marked on ProMap Series LakeMaster map of Mille Lacs. That map shows coordinates for a lot of the flats in the northwest quadrant of the lake, plus many reefs in other parts of the lake. Can anyone give me some advice on how deep the walleyes are likely to be? Are they out on the mud flats yet? On gravel? What techniques are likely to work best this time of year, and should we change techniques as we get near and after sunset? Any advice on location and technique would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Not enough

There's plenty of old posts that cover all your questions but I'll give you my two cents worth. The fish are out on the flats, we fished on Monday and caught fish anywhere from 23-31". we drifted the flats with 10" snells with red hook and white beeds and Leaches we also caugth fish with a spinner and Crawler. I would find a flat and depending on the wind find the edge and troll or drift. if you don't catch any fish or mark fish move to the next flat. It really isn't that hard to catch fish and most will be nice fish.

Good Luck

Mark

not enough we fished the mud flats on Sunday caught fish on top of the flats, on the slopes and out in the deep. They just seemed to be scattered all around the flats. We fished with spinners 8-10' crawlers and leeches. Hammered Copper was the best.

Just spend a while and look at some of these posts. Head out to the mud for sure!!!! Try the tops and the edges. If there are a few in the boat , rig up differently. Last Fri they preferred chart hooks and a chart. bead, over red hook . Leeches, different color beads, and spinner colors. Crawlers also. Just make sure you use snells anywhere from 7-11 ft.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
