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.

      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.
