6 Mile Lake

3 posts in this topic

After many years of fishing Leach on opener, we have deceided to try a different lake in the same area as Leach. Has anyone fished 6 Mile Lake near Bena on opener before? I have heard this smaller lake has some nice walleye numbers and other fish as well. any info would be very helpful. Thank-You.

My dad and a group have went here for years the weekend after opener. Sometimes they do well and some times it is slow. There have been several years where they have loaded up and went to Winni.

thats the beauti of six mile you can go to different waters if they are not going well there. I have never fished it on opener but I have fished it after that and it does have a good pop of walleye, northern and perch. It has the typical ups and downs of a smaller lake some years good others not so good

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
