miltona or irene advice

11 posts in this topic

Have a cabin on Irene and was heading up there to do a little fishing this weekend. Was planning on mostly fishing on Irene for eyes but was wondering if it was worth it to pop over to miltona and wanted to see if anyone had any reports. Was planning on rigging during the day and going out at night trolling cranks. Havent had much luck once it gets dark on irene so was wondering if anyone having any luck with cranks after dark on miltona. Wife and kids not coming this weekend so will be fishing pretty much from thrusday night through sunday

thanks

Caught several huge crappies on Miltona this last weekend. Many over a pound.

I don't like to "fish and tell", but them big crappies are sure fun to catch!

It sure would be nice to run into those. I havn't been out on Miltona for a few weeks now, but I do know that things have been pretty quiet around there. Obviously, quiet can mean one of two things (Really Good or Really Bad).

Hey Knute,

Are you saying the walleyes are at 50’ of water or the water depth is 50’?

Either way, at what depth were the fish hanging at.

I have found fish in 35’ – 40’ of water with the fish around the 20’ – 25’ foot range??

Mainly on the west end…

Went out to Miltona twice this weekend in the deep water 50 to 80 feet in the deep holes. Caught alot of fishing went through alot of minnows. we caught probably around 70 fish a day but its a little said that most of them are 10 inchers or smaller. you would catch 15 fish and then get out that is 15 inches or so pulled out one big fishing 26 inches. just wondering where the big fish are or if their jsut not biting yet?

Drake, think outside the box right now, we are catching big fish extremely shallow. Leave the deep and easy fish alone. If you need some more info, remember this summer when No meant No. Stop in and see Shane and I we are working Friday nite at the main.

One thing that I Notice that should be a huge concern for fisherman though is pulling the fish out of 38 feet of water or deeper a new STUDY says that anything deeper than 38 feet of water 70% of those fish die I was just informed by A well known fisherman. So fisherman look out of where your pulling those fish out from the big fish aren't always deep. and watch that depthfinder when you get below 38 feet start looking to go back up that bank. I know that I wont be fishing in anything deeper than 25 feet. Unless you dont want to be fishing for those marble eyes in 5 to 10 Years.

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.
