The report noted that they are biting on mid lake reefs but I never believe the reports.

Anyone have the temps?

went out sat about 5pm and fished until 8pm. caught 2. 1 was about 10" and the other 22". couldn't find them loaded in one particular area. had a couple of other taps but no takers. started with jig/minnow with no luck then caught those two on crawler on the main reef north of the island in 15 fow.

Ya we pulled 2 out of Center Reef - trolling clown rapalas. One was a 18" and the other was a 24", I agree we couldn't fing them in anyone area, I even drove aroung the other reefs and didn't mark any fish on the Lowrance... Maby I will hit MTKA one more time this year - Ice needs to hurry up-lol-

Everyone, their brother and their mother hit the traditional structures on this lake. I almost completely avoid them. I think that these walleyes are well accustomed to what a jig or minnow bait looks like.

I think you'll have better luck if you check out areas outside of the humps or the flats NE of the island and Nelsons, and cruise for them - that is if they haven't moved shallower yet.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
