Went out to the flats last Sat. caught a personal best

27 3/4" trolling a Rapala TD 11 in 30 FOW at 1:30 in the afternoon. Only got out for 2 hours and that was the only fish caught. Wish I would have had someone with me to take a picture.

What time of the day were you out there? We fished from 8:30 am till around 11:00 caught 1 10" eye didnt see any bait or fish in the area we trolled. Was that you that came all the way from the S and trolled N btwn 7&9 all the way to at least 8 mi? 1 other boat started around 7mi & headed south. Had my worst day on Mille this year. Good to hear you did OK. I was going to give up trolling (daytime)on Mille. You might have changed my mind if it was just a timing thing. Went over to Farm Island with redtails and had a real good time!!

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
