Miltona Action?

5 posts in this topic

I'm making my way to the in-laws cabin on Miltona this weekend. And to keep my sanity while I'm there I'm looking to catch some fish. I do okay there in the summer off the sunken islands, but havn't done much ice fishing there. Where can I find the fish?

They are all located under the ice! If you don't want to be in a crowd, get a map and try some spots. I've heard sketchy reports of late. Lots of water to explore. Good luck, Brent

Personally, I'd start somewhere in the area of Sandy Beach.

And all this time spent on the hard water! You're right, I should try under the ice, they probably taste better too.

our spot is on the west end. we've done okay in about 18-20 feet, but they've been really small. heard some news that it was picking up a bit with nicer fish in other spots (mid-lake maybe? not sure) also heard some nice 'eyes were found as deep as 50'.

good luck.

Found a few in around 32-34 feet on a gradual drop. LOTS of small ones with the occasional nice one. Last time out got a 21 and a 25 that are still swimming...

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
