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!

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
