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 live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
