We caught some nicer fish but yes, it was a tough bite. Seems the euro larvae was the ticket to catching a few more. Tried the jigs with minnow heads but it was a tough bite.

From what i've heard its been a really slow year on mille lacs. Any reason? Bad year classes? too much pressure?

Anybody have any luck with gulp in place of the real thing. Harvey when you say euro larva do you mean just maggots and are you using the colored larva??

Tony Roach was using red maggots/euro-larva for the big perch. He also liked the new smaller red gulp waxies. It was a tough bite but if you moved around you caught them. Lee Harvey and I were out of Appledoorn's.

I was using 6 inch chubs, and also like larger willow cats.

Those 2 lb perch ate those right up.

fished out of hunters friday morning from about 7am to about noon and caught about 5 tiny perch. saw a million tiny ones on the camera but they didnt want anything to do with my bait. used red waxies on a genz worm to catch the perch.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!

      maybe he didn't see the question yet? google is your friend. this one sounds like its for vets that are at the VA.  not sure. Check out Take a Vet Fishing online.  couple events coming up. not by Duluth tho.
