Mille Lacs Muskies

6 posts in this topic

Going to the pond on Sunday. Just wondering if the skis are active or not. Not looking for locations just if they are sluggish, hot, or somewhere inbetween. Thanks in advance.

JJJ,

The activity level of the fish can change daily. There were lots of fish caught last weekend , including some monsters. Ya can't catch 'em from the couch, so keep chucking!Looks like Saturday could be golden with another front coming Sunday, but of course the weather can change too. Good luck and be safe. Steve

Like Steve said, fish attitude is changing from day to day. There's been a pretty good weed bite going right now. Lots of perch moving into the weedy bays (you'll see lots of people fishing them), and the muskies are nearby chasing perch. If you're lucky enough to hit a big concentration of them, you can have a multiple fish day in short order. The muskies are also showing up en-mass at most rock piles. Timing is everything. Try some bigger baits. Bull Dawgs are getting lots of attention right now, but you also gotta remember, everyone is throwing them too. Something big but different just might be the ticket. Good luck.

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
