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

4 posts in this topic

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

      Planning on bringing out the new boat this weekend, I will do my best at the launch to speed up process, but hopefully some slack is cut on account it is a new boat..brand new boat.

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.
