I was up on Saturday and had two with only one tip up out in less than 3 hrs on the lake. One big one that broke my 30lb leader with a head shake as he got to the top of the hole.

I was with my 6yr old and couldn't keep up with either taking perch off or setting up another rod after he tangled up his.

Shallow water, Perch: small teardrop with crappie minnow 1 ft off the bottom, and they slammed it. Pike was with Sucker on a tip up. There were 2 guys tip up fishing about 100 yds from me and they were pretty active, but I couldn't tell you how many.

H20, We will be heading up this Friday-Sunday and we do not have an opportunity to fish Mille Lacs that often,just wondering what part of the lake do you target for Northerns on tip-ups??

Our son has been doing real well fishing in Cove Bay for Northerns. He took his daughter up for the week-end,they did real well at the house, caught walleyes on red hooks with big shiners. Then fished the bay and caught Northerns. They had a riot. Our granddaughter is hooked on fishing.YES

Thanks for the fast response. Hopefully if the perch walleye bite is tough we can take the 4 wheelers and find some pike to keep us busy...

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
