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...

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
