Like I say, Shaws and then 3 mile. You will get fish!

Good to hear! When you going next?

Good note about the Bobber fishing!

Most guys feel a little less about them selves’ bobber fishing Mille Laces during the summer months. You end up staying in one spot and its kind of kid’s thing.

I love it!

Most of my best producing trips to Mille Lacs have been when we bobber fish. It mostly leads to smaller fish, but once and a while a big one goes for the floated leach or minnow. Besides the nightmare of trolling on a launch, this is another big factor why launch's bobber fish. People catch fish!

as always we had our best luck the last morning we were there... we were on 3 mile area from about 8 to 11 in the am... we moved twice to find the top of a small reef.. it came up to 12' from 22'.. we were about 200 yards from the bouys... there was a small wind when we got there and the fishing was excellent just throwin slips w leeches on the top of this reef.... once the wind let up to calm so did the fishing.... i can't wait to get back to mille lacs hopefully this fall when it really turns back on... the excitement when you get a bite on this lake beats any other knowing the walleye size potentail is there.....

keep a tight line!

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
