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.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
