Anyone planning on heading up this weekend? I'm planning on going Saturday night and looking forward to the extra hour of fishing due to daylight savings time. Also looking forward to having a few less boats on the water.

If things go as planned, I'll be there Friday and Saturday night.

When does daylight savings time "kick in"?

I bought alot of Huskey jerk last weekend and was not able to get out and use it!

The boat is ready and I mite go out! I might give up deer hunting for another chance at Mille Lacs!

It should be pretty slow at the launches? I have plenty of venny for the next year and I know I will get plenty from others this year! Might as well save the hunting Lic. Fee's and use twords gas to the big pond!

I'll know later on this week what my plans are so you could call me before Friday if you'd like to find out whether or not I'll be up there.

The seminar went really well. Great discussion.

I have not been out to ML since July. Is there still a problem with shallow landings?

What is the best landing to go out of on the west side?

The public landings are low to, in some cases, not usable. If I was to pick the best public landing on the W side, I would say Pike Point, right in Garrison.

I ended up booking some guide trips down here for the weekend so I won't be making the trek North; at least not until Wednesday when I leave for Bambi camp.

Good luck to all this weekend. No reason it won't be a good one.

I'll give you a call tomorrow afternoon. I started to mark a lot of bait in our late season hot spot last weekend. Looks like the weather is going to be pretty good. I'm hoping for a better bite than we had last weekend. We'll have three guys in the boat tomorrow night which will allow us to try a lot of baits.

I wouldn't launch at a public ramp. Pay $10 at a private ramp. It makes things so much easier especially if the wind picks up. We launch at Terry's. Good depth and easy to find at 2 in the morning.

Good luck. I'll look for your boat as we'll be fishing the north and west side as well.

D, sounds great! Do you still have that doctored HJ that pulled our biggest fish last year on that unreal night? I have a doctored FT I call "bloody nose". It was a hot bait last Wed for a couple hours.

We will start up there with you but we are going to go searching for those pods of 27-30 inch sumos later in the night. We haven't picked up a 29 or better yet this fall, we are overdue. From what I've read and heard the fish still seem to be keying on small yoy perch but that may change tonight. wink.gif

Thanks for the tips on the landings guys. The wind will dictate if I go to the big pond or not with my 16'er. As nice as it is out right now it looks like I missed a good opportunity this morning.

I hope to make out there tonight.

Good luck this weekend.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?

      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp through 4 p.m. Friday, July 28, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  2017 Trout and Salmon Stamp Competition
      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work. Trout or salmon must be the primary focus of the design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul. For more information and contest guidelines, visit mndnr.gov/stamps, or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
