Fishing Out of Izaty's Thur 16th - Sunday 19th w/ work crew - Eyes ?? Smallies??

Recommended Posts


I have never fished the South end of Millacs before for Eyes or Smallies.. My time has been on North end by Wealthwood / Red Door & mainly early in the year.

Anyway - I'm not looking for any secrets - just a little info if possible.

I will be fishing with some co-workers from out of state and thought that I should drag my boat & poles up and see if anyone wanted to wet a line; post compact meetings.

Day Time fishing (I believe) will be our only option.

I really do not know if the Walleyes are bitting at all ( and if crawlers on spinners is the best option ) or if we should look for some Smallie's on live bait or cranks.

If walleyes are biting and the slot is an issue - That would not be an issue for us; as catching would be a priority and keeping not an issue.

I'm sure a few from MO and futher South have never had a Walleye on their line.

No Secrets needed - But I would accept a few helpful suggestions if any body has a direction or any past weekend experiences.

Thanks in advance - - -

You have a enought time the fishin has been slow but still catching fish. Spinners and crawlers gold hammered blades been workin for me and trolling shad raps with bottom bouncers in 20-30 fow all my fish been caught during the day just had to work for the fish I caught. I Don't bobber fish just troll but i'm sure you can catch both walleyes and smallies under a bobber with Leech's on some of the rock piles.

The walleye bite has definitly slowed the past couple of weeks but you can still get a few. Like stated in the last post, some of the rock piles on the south end are a good bet for both. Slip bobbers with a small jig or plain hook and a leech. You'll find some perch in the same areas. I'd fish shallow for the smallies and fall deeper for the perch and 'eyes, although you'll get a mix in certain depths at certain times. The south end can be great.

Gentlemen - Thanks for your info. I will get 2 or 3 poles set for each and be ready to go. I'll put lighted bobbers on just in case we have the opportunity to fish at dark.

Thanks again

      Is anyone planning on getting new gear for this season? I went from planning to get an underwater camera, to all new rain gear, to finally settling on merely getting a cheaper pair of rain pants to wear under my current bibs. I also got another ultra light panfish pole since it's always the most popular one on the dock. Anyone buying new boats? New rods? New electronics? New cabins?

      I absolutely love a 6 inch hole more holes per charge and a hardly ever lose a fish in the hole. I had a 8 inch and sold it. I panfish 99% of the time with some cats on the chain and at our get together almost everyone used a 6 inch hole. everyone got them up.

      As I age and cant jump off the bucket as fast as I used to I am enjoying the 6 inch for that occasional dandy panfish that comes unbuttoned right at the top of the hole. They have a hard time turning around and zipping back down.   Doesnt happen often but my chances of grabbing the fish are improved when it does.

      I am heading to Florida on vacation in a day and I'm not sure what sort of ice conditions I'm going to come back to in the Twin Cities in April. With that I mind I decided to walk out on a Metro lake with a buddy on Wednesday to try to capitalize on a sundown shallow water bite. We used big baits and fished a shallow weedy point. The Crappies would come flying out of the thick stuff and hammer the baits - it was a lot of fun to watch on the flasher! How late into April do you think we'll be ice fishing in the Metro?

    • gimruis I'm not going to get into what I think of this boneheaded proposal but it goes against pretty much every piece of science out there.
