Bugs/ may flies

6 posts in this topic

was anyone there yesterday to see if the may flies hatched. I saw a couple huge balls of bugs coming up on the graph Sunday and Monday. Can't wait to have those slapping me in the face. frown.gif

They hatched all right. I could hear the hum on the south shore. Not as bad as I have seen in the past, however.

The flies are thick as thieves today. You couldn't talk without eating one. Fished 4 hours for walleye around Vineland and 7 mile. Not a bite, larvae everywhere. Smallies were on their beds for the most part in the SE corner. Caught 9 smallies in about 4 hours. You may want to avoid Mille Lacs for a couple weeks until the flies and smallie spawn is over.

I was in the Malmo area on Sunday and the bugs were not an issue, but I was there during the day.
