Wow, was Mille Lacs bad this past weekend!!

6 posts in this topic

Hey all, my buddy and I hit Mille Lacs this past weekend... The reports are true - fishing is bad right now out there. We tried everything under the sun this past weekend and managed only one 22 incher in about 15 hours total of fishing... Yikes! Wasn't like the opener where caught 50 eyes averaging about 23 inches a piece. We knew before we went that it would be bad, but since we both are so busy in October, we couldn't have rescheduled... Oh well, that's how it goes sometimes! A bad couple days of fishing is always better than a good couple days of work!!

PS - the highlight of our weekend had to be staying in the Garrison Inn and Suites where some drunk guy came busting in at about 2 AM to ask my buddy if he had waffles to eat... Some bachelor party blew through there on Saturday night and I was about to tackle some of those dudes... Funny though about the waffle sitch...

I would recommend changing your tactics because the fish are very hungry right now. smirk.gif

I went up this weekend with hovermn and stayed out of Isle, we did great on friday and saturday, but then the winds changed and it died off, we did mostly exploring and looking for perch when we should of statyed to our game plan, great weekend either way.

It all depends on your approach. Bite was actually pretty good this weekend for a lot of guys who were pulling cranks shallow.

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
