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.

      Don't beat yourself up over it at all. I moved several times and you still caught more than I did. Looking forward to this weekend's weather, will not even need a shelter to check depths and move around..... Fingers crossed, I haven't found fish all year. Sure am amazed at the wheelhouses though, absolutely mind numbing the #'s...

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.
