minnows

4 posts in this topic

went out friday nite up on the north end. tried trolling raps for a few hours over the rocks, in deeper water (22 ft) and then went in shallow ( 8-12 ft) and then tried even shallower (2-4 ft). nothing, however my buddy and i when we got back to the landing noticed the minnows in 1-2 ft. you couldn't see the bottom, there were millions of them. they looked like perch, but my buddy thought they were walleyes, they were greeen with vertical dark bars, and had whilt bellies. just wanted to let people know that if there were that many the eyes shud b in shallow after these guys. right?? i was just blown away by the sheer numbers of them. anyone else have any luck this weekend trolling?

They are small perch, the boat harbors and shallow areas are FULL of them this year.

I didn't fish Mille Lacs this weekend

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      I never made it out Monday was too tired from fishing Friday - sunday didn't feel like getting up early

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
