Mud Flats

5 posts in this topic

What boat ramp would be the best for me to launch from so I could get out to the deeper mud flats without driving across the entire lake. I have never fished Mille Lacs and I am going to try downrigging out deep. Is there any rocks or things i need to beware of while traveling out?

It depends on what Flat (s) you want to fish. Agate Bay's launch is nice $10 to launch

MyrMar($10) is a good launch if you are fishing any of the north end flats and only 7 miles to 7 mile. I have seen a number of rigs using the public landing west of MyrMar but not sure how good it is.

The Garrison public access isn't terrible. I have a 17' V-Craft and haven't had any problems in the past 3 weeks. I have been fishing the flats from that access as well.

Hunters Point on the east side is pretty good. $10.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
