Anybody care to share their Mille Lacs Muskie experiences. I will be heading up next weekend and am wondering what works and or where to start. Thanks, T

Well, T Bone, my most recent experience (Saturday and today) wasn't much to write home about but I'll share anyhow. In a nutshell it was slow. Cabbage weeds can be found but the better (only) action for this angler was up shallow in 3-6 fow. I hooked 2 'skis but didn't land them and caught a small northern in about 10 angler hours of trying. tongue.gif As is usually the case I'd expect the action to get better later on in June.

We were fishing in front of Father Hennipen Friday night for walleyes with slip bobbers and leeches. One of the guys in my boat landed a 36" musky. That was fun to watch on 6 pound line.

Small bucktails and larger than bass-sized spinnerbaits but smaller than the usual muskie spinnerbaits. It all depended on the types of weeds present. Got a boil on Cisco Kid also. Good luck.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT

      Finally got a bird down.  A small jake, but a bird none the less.
