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!

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
