NEED HELP WITH MILACS

4 posts in this topic

MY FRIEND AND I ARE HEADING UP TO MILACS IN THE MIDDLE OF JUNE. THIS WILL BE OR 2ND YEAR GOING UP. WE FISHED LAST YEAR IN THE SOUTH END AND FOR THREE DAYS WE SPENT OUR TIME IN THE BEUTIFUL MILACS CASINO DUE TO WEATHER ISSUES. OUR ISSUE WAS NOT WANTING TO DIE IN WHAT TO SEEMED TO BE 6FT WAVES 20FT OFF SHORE,BUT WE DID SPEND ABOUT 5 HOURS OF PURE FISHING HORRER. WE ARE GOING UP TO THE SAME AREA THIS YEAR AND WHOULD APPRECIATE SOME SUGGESTION ON WERE TO FISH IN THAT AREA. LATELY I HAVE BEEN READING THAT MILACS HAS TURNED INTO A BOBBER LAKE FOR EYES. ANY SYMPATHETIC ADVISE WHOULD BE VERY APRECIATED.

Go to sloppy Joes on the south west side. There will be quite a few boats there so it will be easy to find without a gps and it's easy to fish. If you drift with live bait rigs or pull spinners you can make long runs due to the size of the reef or find a little hump and bobber. There will not be a whole lot of depth change so 1-2 feet is a hump. Mid June is when the spinner and crawler bite usually gets good. Good luck. grin.gif

If you are staying on the west side near the casino, the first spot I would try would be that gravel bar off of Indian point about a quarter mile. That's a great spot for a bouncer/blade bite. From there, Sloppy's is good and easy to fish. Also if it is nice and you can run and gun a little bit, the Highway and 4 and 5 mile might be worth a try. Also, don't forget about the mud. It may be a bit too early for it, but it all depends upon the weather that we have. 7 and 8 mile (seguchie)- are fairly close to where you are staying and I would give them a try as well. I think the bigger fish are out at the mud earlier than most the other ones anyway.

Good Luck and let us know how you do. grin.gif

Mid June on Mille lacs is a great time of year to fish the lake. This time of year I would either stick to the mud flats or the gravel. Fish near the edges and you should catch fish. If you are fishing from a smaller boat and wind is a factor try fishing some of the shallow rocks in that area. Indian pt, Rocky reef, and Anderson's reef are all good spots that hold fish. Good luck to ya!

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
