Paul,

Sounds and looks like the night you e-mailed me last Sept when there was a post on 6ft waves, and you were out trolling cranks.

Go get 'em!!!!

Paul,

looks like you'll need help leveling the dock this weekend smile.gif

I would be casting Raps off the dock, the fish must all be washed up there.

Later,

Kevin

cool pics! i love big waves! i would be the one sitting out on the doc, in that open seat, watching & thinking...

is that your boat paul? ive only seen it once at night. its a nice boat lift and the way the boat is on it makes the most sense. you dont see many boats on lifts bow to the lake. the wind will only be bad coming from the direction it is in the pictures. it can blow all it wants from other directions because of the land protection. even in worse case scenarios like the pictures, you still can get the boat on it providing its deep enough to drive around. if not im sure you do just fine improvising... ;-)

so, in the dark, if the wind is still blowing, someone might do just great casting shad raps or jigs & minnows or ... off that dock!

regards,

minnesoatatuff

I would assume that the reason you have an open seat is because the other guy fell out and drown in the waves? Just kidding. Looks like fun. Do you think my 14 footer will make it out there?

Here are a couple quick questions that ran through my mind. Are we going to be back trolling? Where is my life jacket? I hope you have about 6 drift socks. I want to know where the Kayak came from....the other side of the lake? How is the Undertow?

Guys,

The wind just continues to blow!!!

Thanks for all of the responses. When it gets that brutal outside there's not a lot else that you can do other than watch the sand pile in on our resort burying the grass frown.gif

Paul,

Have you heard any forecasts for the weekend? I am planning to be up on the pond fishing and if there is much wind, I will need to stay close in to the calm side. 14 footer with a 15. The boat has been on the lake before and I am very comfortable running it, but not if it gets really bad.

Thanks,

Tom

Tom,

If it was me I would be launching out of Garrison and staying close to the NW side of the lake as it looks like it is going to blow for a few more days.

      Tulibee? Last February on Frazer Bay

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early. 
    • eyeguy 54
      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
