Mille Lacs Musky Report

6 posts in this topic

Musky fishing has been very good. With the recent cooler temps (water temps upper 60's and lower 70's), fishing has picked up overall, especially during the day. We have been catching fish, both on the rocks and in the weeds and sand, and mostly on smaller bucktails. This is a welcome change from the pretty much non-existant day bite during the hot time in July and early August. Now, you just have to put in your time as we've caught them morning, mid day, and evening. We've been catching fish in the dark as well on bigger baits. One thing I've noticed is the fish are getting fatter and fatter. We've seen some dandies, and caught a real fat brute of a 49 incher two nights ago. Some friends stopped to chat while we were releasing it, and hooked an equally fat 51 while they were "hanging out". As usual, short feeding windows, and the weed/sand tends to put out multiple fish in short order. Release em quick and get fishing right away to get in on the "pack action"!

Some pics included from some recent action. Good luck.....

First time poster long time reader...

My dad and I were lucky enough to go fishing with Tim Anderson, and look at the results! Tim knew the lake like the back of his hand and was relentless in his pursuit of the muskie. We have gone with a number of guides on prior occasions, but never had the amount of follows, strikes, and hook ups as we had with Tim. I caught my first muskie and my dad caught his largest, by far, and all within one 8 hour trip! Tim is simply the best muskie guide we have fished with.

Brent, and my dad Chuck

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
