any one hunt MILLE LACS

7 posts in this topic

has any of you guys hunted the big water, I typically hunt it opening day of deer season not hardly any one out their. but the last couple of years it was way to nice and warm to hunt it besides not many ducks . I hunted deer those years and was wondering if anyone gave it a try

I know a guy that hunted it a couple years back during ice up and couldn't keep the goldeneyes out of the dekes...

Might hunt it this year but we'll have to see. Last year was horrid for divers in my areas but I did manage my first canvasback ever--man did it taste good! Best duck I've ever had.

hey sartell angler yea a couple years back maybe three it was almost impossible not to get a bill or goldeneye they were all over it was a blast 12 gauge style . I also (then) shot a can the last day of season. it was 25 years since the last one. I'm hoping for cold wheather early that lake can be awsome!

Years ago used to hunt right by the public access in Wahkon Bay, good shooting, haven't done it in years and not sure if you even could...I think you cold probably hunt out on them islands if you have access.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
