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...
