Any reports out there? Taking a trip next weekend up there and would be interested in how people are catching fish this time of year.

Thanks.

I'll be up there too this coming weekend. Nobody wants to give away their secret spots. wink.gif I'll be in Grassy bay for most of my fishing. My Brother has a cabin in Crane and says he's been hitting them consistantly in Sandpoint and Little Vermilion, but he fishes the Canadian side almost exclusively of both lakes so I can't go to his spots. If you see a 16' Green Crestliner with a 50HP Yamaha stop by for a chat. smile.gif Good luck!

Thanks Johnny,

I too will not be venturing to the other side, so it will be US only. I was more interested in HOW people are catching them now. I cerainly wouldn't tell anyone, nor want anyone to tell me of their hotspots.

I'll post a report after the trip.

Had a group just get back. They said fishing was slow but the black fly bite was great! Each day left new welts of happiness all over their ankles.

Good Luck

If you're a bass man, you'd do well to portage your gear into Mukooda and fish the weed lines on the far side (opposite the portage and camping sites) of the lake between the islands; also the reed beds north of those islands. I've discovered the wonders of wacky-rigged Senkos this summer and can't wait to try them on the largemouth in there when we come up the third week of August. You used to be able to portage your own canoe or small boat in there, but now -- because of the spiny water flea infestation -- you have to rent from a resort one of the six or so boats previously stationed over there. The reasoning being that that the boats already there (which are chained up; the resorts give you a key and a plug) are not infested, but a boat portaged from Crane/Sand Point might be. Still, it's worth the $30 or so to rent a boat in there, because the water is crystal clear and the bass, in the last 5 years or so, have been hungry and plentiful. It's pretty much my favorite lake. I've never fished it at night, so I'm contemplating bringing a tent and sleeping bags and getting the full use of the 24-hour boat rental. Anyone have any Up North largemouth night-fishing hints? The Mukooda portage dock is in a bay off of Sand Point, located southwest of the Candian Trading Post/Customs Office.

      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.

      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.

      It’s still a blast to fish

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....
