Mille Lacs in the fall

Recommended Posts

love to hunt

Needless to say come September I usually put away the boat and get my tree stand out for bow season. However I have heard stories about the eye's in the fall on Mile Lacs. My dad seems to think this would be worth a try.

Can any one shed some validity on this and provide a fellow with some spots and tatics for fall eye's.

The fall bite on Mille Lacs is one of the best of the year and something I look forward to every open water season. I typically focus on the night time trolling but there are several opportunities to catch fish during the day as well. Shoot me an e-mail at info@tightlinesguiding.com for some more information.

I'm going to give it a try Sunday.

Starting the middle of September it's twice a week until I'm tired of it or freeze up. Whichever happens first.

Hey guys I am getting all my ready to go. I have a couple of question. Last fall we tried around indian and shermans point on the west side. We didn't have much luck. I guess my question is what kind of bottom are the walleyes relating to this time of year sand,rock,gravel,weed lines mud. Also where would be a good place time to start this time of year. I think we have the right presentatrion just wrong structure or location. My last question is for any musky hunters out there. Wheres a good place to start looking for these monsters this time of year, would really like to hook into one at night I think it would be wild.

Thanks for helping a rookie guys.

It normally starts now. I think any wind blown rock piles will have the fish and a simple bobber/leech or bobber/minnow works. laugh.gif

Pretty nice looking moon out there last night .... blush.gif

I hear water temps have gotten into the 60's ..... ooo.gif

Need to start getting caught up on my sleep, going to hit it 1 or 2 nights this weekend, just to see ..... wink.gif

eyes54 - I mostly just troll in the fall --- or only troll in the fall. Indian Point is a great spot if it's not covered by bobber guys but I've never tried off Sherman's Point. Right in Shaboshkong bay in front of the public access is a well-known hot spot in the fall. I fish weeds a lot, 4-8 fow most of the time. If you can find weeds and rocks together, hold on. Lots of guys hit the rocks on the E and SE sides.

The only pattern I have for muskies when night trolling for walleyes is the bigger the bait, the better. The only muskie I had last year and all my biggest pike came on stick baits like a #12 HJ or a Limited Edition Rogue (bigger than a normal Rogue). Last year guys were joking to not use a #14 HJ unless you wanted a ski to take it. The musky we had last year came on one of the Myr Mar reefs.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
