I would leave the tube jigs at home (for walleyes). I would try pulling cranks around doe Island Reef or Shaws. I have have had luck in Pubie access bay south of Sunset (up by island and not Doe) with cranks shallow during early fall time. I would not rule out live rigging for walleyes. I also would try frogs in a little shallower. I know guys will have many other idea's, but this seems to work for me..

Unless you're looking for smallies, which isn't a bad idea on Mille Lacs, your going to want to change your bait. Try trolling crankbaits during day and evening. Live bait and a slip bobber works well at night too.

Thanks EYEBJIM!!!

Troyslund,

That sounds like enough boat for MIlle Lacs..

Good luck...

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
