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!

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
