Mille Lacs Fishing Last Sunday

Recommended Posts

mallatrout

We went out of Garrison, tried everthing Rainbows,jigging,waxies and crappie minnows.We had seen a bunch of schools, with some big walleye's on the camera nothing seemed to bite. But next weekend we might try out of fishermans wharf, and go out to big point with the sleeper. Has anyone been fishing over in that area?

I am going to be in one of Fisherman's Wharf sleepers this weekend--we made our reservations before we heard about the bumper perch hatch that is making the bite tough this winter. Based on what I am hearing and reading, I plan on sticking to basics, i.e. shiners on tip-ups and fatheads on deadsticks with green and red hooks at low light, and waxies on bare hooks during the day. If nothing else, I'll catch some of the bazillions of little perch.

From what I hear, the jumbos are bitting on freshwater shrimp. Two guys near my uncle on big point limited out on jumbos. Using a crappie jig and a freshater shrimp hooked threw the head. I have been to the wharf before, good food nice place. Darren the owner is friends with my uncle. We have always had a good time there when the fish are not bitting..

Just wodering where a guy can get freshwater shrimp? Myself and 2 other guys are heading up to the BIG POND on Saturday for a one day trip. Never seen freshwater shrimp in the bait shops in Alex before, and would rather support the bait shops in that area anyways being that's where we're fishing.

I had my shack on big point for 2 weeks and my buddie is still there and either of us have caught one perch on big point. most of the other shacks have moved out of there as well. How deep of water did they "claim" to catch this limit?

I know they went out of Fishermans Wharf on 4-wheeler and they were in 18ft of water. But They had the camera down seen a couple walleyes. But the perch were very picky and hard to catch on wax worms but they got three, cutt them open and they were full of shrimp.

Fished Agate bay reef Sunday and Monday with my two kids. They managed to pull in 37 jumbos and lost about 10 or so more. What a blast they had. All day we saw perch on our cameras. Only time we did not have any perch around is when a few pike came in to check out what was going on. We had or best luck for the jumbos from sunup to about 10:30 or so then really slowed down after that for the big ones. We fished in 28ft of water and used red euro larvae on a Fiska hook in color brown. Fished right on the bottom.

Also noticed that they were full of shrimp but never tried using them.

PLfisherman,

I was in my own house. We saw all kinds of perch but only one eye for the three days. Lots of little perch but that kept the kids interested most of the day. Headed back up this weekend minus the kids in hopes of getting a few more jumbos.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
