How's The Fishing

7 posts in this topic

I've been out of the loop on Mille Lacs for two weeks, Traveling for work. How's the fishing been? Are you guys out on the mud or rocks?

Thanks,

I haven't been out in almost for a month. I got a report form my Cousin to fish the south end rocks. Bobbers when there is a wind. 6-8 ft med size leeches.

This report is from last weekend

I just got home from the pond. Managed 1 walleye. Couldn't keep the perch off the line. Good slabs though.

Fished the SE corner mainly. Rocks seemed to be better. Flats didn't produce much.

How deep were the perch?

We found most of the keepers in 4 to 10 FOW. Deeper water, they were much smaller.

Thanks for the info.Will they stay at that depth for much of the fall season?

I do not know. I would assume so as the water starts to cool down a bit. Water was 69 on Thursday, and up to 71 on Saturday. This was the first time I have been up the the pond in 15 years, and I will definitely be going back!

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
