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

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
