Hi

4 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm new to the fishing minnesota forums. I'm currently from St. Cloud. I've been fishing mille lacs for a few years, but was just wondering, when it comes to night fishing in the fall, the presentations are fairly straight forward, but is rocky reef worth checking out? I'm looking to take my dad up a few days after the next full moon on the 4th. info is appreciated, thanks.

Just read the post below this one that talks about the Oct 7th full moon.

All the rock reefs will hold fish at some point. Rocky reef is one of the good ones that will get plenty of pressure. Just beware that the NE end(as well as a couple spots in the middle) is very shallow this year. Motors can and will go bump in the night.

Don't be afrraid to checkout some of the St. Cloud lakes this time of year as well. They eyes are going on several of them as well. The size isn't as consistently large as Mille Lacs but there are lots of good fish to be had as well as some trophies.

Have Fun!

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
