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.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
