I don't know where your from, but lake mille lacs has some great big fat walleyes, trouble is getting them to bite. lots of great action on the camera, but very few takers. This lake will also produce some big pig like perch. Those taste as good as the walleyes do, but just my opinion. Cant go wrong with a day on mille lacs.

If you are familiar with the Chisago Lakes chain you can stumble across some walleyes. Many others on the boards will know more than me, but you can catch them on N/S Center, Chisago, and Green. You have to have a bit a patience around there though because they are not going to be biting fast and furious.

I have had or heard of guys having some success this year on green. Around Lindberg's point and the deep (34') hole are two good places to start.

My buddys grandparents live on the lake and i do quite a bit of fishing up there with them i cant count how many times i have said i will never fish it again. Dont get me wrong its a good lake but it seems like everybody and there neighbor fishes it. We did pretty good last weekend on south end of the west side. Dan i used to fish green a couple times a week over the past few years but its getting harder and harder to get into keeper crappies. Which of the two centers (north and south) are better?

I hear ya. I hate when your spot starts gettin people around and quick! Like flys on.... trash. I tell ya what though, I think (on a big body like Rush) all those groups that are so thick with people seem to send alot of fish to those good spots that don't have anyone around...but me. ;\) There are spots that I would "never fish" that I now find myself checking just because any of my target spots are now a small city on the ice. What I find is suprising usualy, and I fish there. So many breaks, and spots to target on East, and West Rush. I go in just assuming that all the fish have been pushed away from those "cities" and I have to choose from the remaining portions of the lake to look for them, and it works.

west rush is a great lake, the "spots" are almost unlimited with the structure that this lake has. The guy above me is right on, move away from those crowds, and be willing to be mobile. big lake and if they are not right under you, no point in waiting for them to find you, look at the lake and target a different area. This is a high pressure lake, but if you move away from the little cities, the fishing can be great, but when isn't fishin great? good luck!!

I personally like Big Sandy Lake just East and North of Mille Lacs on Highway 65. They have been getting lots and lots of nice catches of "Old Marble Eyes" up there this year. Take a look at the McGregor/Aitkin Forum.

Tight Lines!

I've been hitting a few eyes out on Forest Lake. They're getting really slow right now but I'm hoping the bite will pick up in a few weeks. It's tough to find a quiet spot where they will hit the bait but I've had the best luck at around 15 feet close to deeper water. They mainly hit small bait like a glow jig with a crappie minnow but they have hit on rainbow chubs as well.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.
