Lake Miltona

Recommended Posts

minnesotamusky

My dad and I will be fishing Lake Miltona tomorrow. We have never been there before and were wondering where to find the walleyes and muskies. Maybe even bass and panfish. I do have a pretty good lake map. Can anyone point out the best spots for us? Thanks.

Sorry I didn't see your post ealier.
Spent the last week fishing Miltona, Mostly trying for Muskies(with no luck). But did find a few crappies, bass, walleye, and bluegills(two ten inchers), Straight out from the north landing, where the flat drops off to the east. 14ft to 20ft was the place to be, jigging with leeches and crawlers.

On a little side note, we did catch two fish, a 3lb pike and a 1lb rock bass, that had both been obviously been attacked by a large predator, while being reeled in. I caught the pike, and while reeling it in I nearly had the pole jerked out of my hands, once landed, the fish started bleeding from the area where the scales and some skin had just been removed. And Leah caught the rock bass with wounds that didn't come from a prop. We were close to the big boys, they seemed to want live "bait" more than anything else we tried.

Let me know how you did, and where you fished, that lake has so much different structure to fish it takes alot of time to figure it out. Last week 14 to 20 ft with heavy veggies held the most fish that were willing to bite for us.

We didn't have much luck yesterday. Caught a few small largmouth bass, alot of rock bass, one sunfish and one really small perch. All of that in ten hours of fishing. I couldn't keep the rock bass off of my orange fat rap. As soon as it hit the water, they hit it. I fished most of the day for muskies, not even a follow up. My dad was fishing for anything but muskies. We started the day fishing off of Tamarack Point and worked our way to the very west bay by the reeds. We fished alot of the sharp drop offs and humps. Towards the end we tried fishing the Flats and then trolled back to the boat landing at sundown. That is when I caught all of those rock bass. It was our first time on Miltona. I am definitely going back this fall. That is a very interesting lake. I like all the structure. We don't have any lakes like that in the Marshall area. I wish we did. All we have is large mud ponds with a few fish. How are most of the muskies caught on that lake? Where and how do they catch them? I talked to a guy at the landing and he said that he caught one, only 30", trolling for walleyes. Any advice? Thanks!

breezy and overcast days are great for throwing bucktail spinners. fall trolling can be productive on miltona, too. jake baits or big stick baits. look for the deep cabbage and work over the tops or the outside edges. a lot of bass fishermen will boat 'skis when jigging the deep weeds for largemouth. it is a fantastic fishery, great multi-species lake.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.
