Anyone have GPS coordinates for Terry's. I would like to program it into my GPS.

Thanks

styx, I went into Lakemaster and found the general area, however it does not specifically name Terrys. I know I can drive right to it as we access there to hit 8 mile from the west. Maybe someone else has a different map, perhaps Gizmo Guy, he's got all the toys. Sorry, Bill

No problem guys, glad to help. I will give you a freebie also. Straight out from Terrys there is an entrance to a small lagoon. Right in front of that entrance is prime during the day with a north wind and can be absolutely deadly trolling cranks at night through that area laugh.gif

Paul,

How deep of water would you fish during the day??? With the forecast next week temps being in the 50's, I may head up .

How have you been doing during the nite bite , colors, sizes confused.gif Always willing to read, and purchase cranks, and most importantly learn from everyone.

Thanks for the info!!!!!!

Geez Paul! Giving away the farm grin.gif FYI you can fish that spot during the day and pull walleyes out of it. Done it trolling and slip bobbering fatheads. Usually a few boats hanging around there though. Few weeks ago I saw a 28" eye get caught there around noon. You do not need to be very deep. 10ft max. The trick is getting on the lip of the first little break from 4 to 10ft. During the day lean toward natural colors Tennessee shad, blue chrome etc. At night I would switch to perch patterns. If you feel like there is some great perch fishing in this area during the day (that's why the walleyes are there). You have to do some searching to find the school but some nice jumbos can be caught.

Mark,

thanks for the good information. What determines during the day to either troll cranks or slip bobber? (wind conditions ??)

I slip bobber when I am chasing perch. Find the perch (they will be shallow on rock about 4ft depth) daytime walleyes will be close by. Anchor along that break I mentioned. Cast out to deeper water for eyes shallow for perch. If I were only fishing for eyes I'd troll. If a certain spot put out fish in two or three consecutive passes consider anchoring up and working slip bobbers for a awhile. Then back to trolling. FYI if you do find a honey hole for perch be sure to be on that spot at sunset and slip bobber. You will have a pretty good walleye bite. After it gets dark trolling is all I do. One last thing for slip bobbering use 1/8 jigheads gold if sunny orange if not and bend the hook tip up and to the side a bit. Helps hooking up on the eyes and the perch.

Mark,

Thanks for all the info. There is so much info from everyone here. I do bend the hooks with 1/8 oz or sometimes I use a little smaller jig (glow jigs). Are you heading up anytime soon??

I am hoping to be up there tomorrow from 2pm until whenever. I need to get my tow vehicle out of the shop first so it's not a for sure thing. If I can't hit the big pond I will be trolling on Minnetonka.

Good luck if you get out. Still trying to find a way to go Sat afternoon/eve. What would be your top choices for cranks on Mille Lacs (sizes and colors).

If you ever have an opening sometime, give me an e-mail mpothen@intricon.com. (w) 651-604-9540.

Husky Jerks 12 or 14 similar sized Rogues. and Rapala floaters. I always have HJs in clown, fire tiger, glass perch, Tennessee shad and blue chrome with me. Rogue lazer craw and the chrome with black stripes. Fire tiger cloudy nights clown on clear and glass perch for either are my best producers. Need to experiment to get the color right. It really helps to have three in the boat so you can get it dialed in.

Mark,

Thanks for all your valuable info!!!! It is a great help.

Just curious, any rule of thumb or what determines to try Husky Jerks over Shad Raps??

Time to pick up some Cranks this weekend. Good luck this weekend!! Post your results or give an e-mail next week.

If you head up next week , give me a shout if you have an open seat. I'll contribute to the "gas fund".

This time of year I don't use shad raps. I have found the minnow bait profile and action to be a lot more effective.

im sorry paul. somewhere there is a happy medium, or i'd like to think so. i can sure understand someones wanting serenity having a cabin or lake home on mille lacs... where do we cross the line and become disrespectful? that certainly is not anyones intention here.

MT,

I agree with you, but when it becomes a personal attack on a person it immediately becomes disrespectful frown.gif

you are absolutely right! the facts of the matter are mille lacs is a public water way and more and more people are fishing there all the time. that same confrontation must have occurred many times in the history of the lake and will continue in different forms for as long as mille lacs and humans are here. we all have to learn to live with each other, EVERYWHERE!

If he thinks he had a spot to "fish alone" and that no one else ever fished that spot before your post, then he is clearly the dumbass.

Universally loved minus 1 is still pretty good. If you have any info or recommendations for baits, colors, times, depths, presentations, size of fish caught and numbers of fish caught right in front of that lagoon, I hope you share them too wink.gif

That is way offsides to me. I live on Minnetonka and have bass and musky fisherman going by all day long. I even have them casting at my dock while I am on it. I could have that guy's attitude but I don't. I just wave Hi and ask how's the fishing. They have the right to be there. FYI I had another owner in that area come out and ask me sarcasticly if I wanted to buy his dock so it would be easier to fish there. I countered with how about a month lease for October with an option to buy and I'd throw in a limit or two of walleyes as a bonus all with a smile. He softened up a bit and we chatted for awhile about the fishing in that area. Point there is it goes both ways. Those lake owners have paid and continue to pay via taxes for that property. Let's be considerate no matter what they do or say.

I agree Mark, I live on a lake also and I happen to have some of the best fishing on the lake right in front of my house. It's not a huge secret or anything, other people fish near my dock everyday. But if someone put the exact location on this website it would completely destroy that spot. I don't own the water but we need to use our heads when giving an exact location. Lure color, speed, time, depth and general location are all very helpful. Naming an exact spot is destructive and disrespectful to anyone who has put in the time to find that spot on there own. There's a difference between a well known spot and a boat parking lot which can now be found out in front of the lagoon by Terry's.

Paul, you have to feel sorry for the guy that wrote that letter to you. It is obvious that he dislikes humans therefore he wants to be left alone. Consequently his social skills have not allowed him to find any company that he might enjoy him, vice versa. Some people choose to go through life miserable. By the way where I'm from you would never talk that way to someone who knew where your cabin was.

Good point PieEyed. Fortunately for us, Mille Lacs remains one of the premier walleye lakes in the state with a very strong and healthy stock of walleyes. I've personally seen excellent, yet much smaller and unregulated panfish lakes completely destroyed due to "word of mouth" resulting in extreme pressure. With responsible catch and release practice, regulation and proper handling of fish, Mille Lacs should continue to produce a healthy stock despite the pressure at the recent "hotspots".

It was good chatting with you at the access early this morning. Unfortunately for me, there will be ice the next time I make it on the lake. Give me a shout if you're out early ice. Chances are I'll be hitting a few early ice "hotspots" of my own.

    • Ya I think my dog would want to go after them he gets really excited around other dogs. That's why I will never hunt him without his e collar because I know I can stop him in his tracks with it. My dog likes to hunt close and I never let him push out way in front of me so at least I have eyes on him at all time and can give him the command to come to me if I see a wolf. I always keep a slip lead with me as well so I can put that on him and not have my hand tide up reaching down holding on his collar.

      I had a couple run in with wolves last year in the Longville/Remer area but that was just with me on foot with no dog.

      The one thing that gets me is "Only agents of the government are authorized to take wolves if pets or livestock are threatened, attacked or killed" 

      I don't think I could just stand there and watch my dog die.

      Anyway did you hunt a different area? Any birds I have only been out once in the mille lacs area and didn't see any. Going to Nemadji this weekend and should see some.

      Went up north of Tofte last weekend camping/looking for a few grouse and to see the fall colors. Was in the region of the grade and 600 road. Pulled off on a walk only trail to run my lab and see if I could kick a few. Anyhow, my lab sits and barks like hell with anticipation at me every time I'm getting the gun out and getting ready to hunt her. So for about 5 minutes she's harassing me loud barking with excitement. We start walking down the trail maybe 50 yards and I see all this brown commotion jumping around ahead of us about 75 yards. At first I think we startled some deer. Then one came out full on the trail and stood watching me/dog. They were timber wolves. That one slunk off in the woods and another came out and just sat there looking at us for about a minute or so. When I noticed they were wolves I grabbed the dog by the caller. They seemed interested in my dog. Her barking must have drew them in. They ran off after looking us over a bit. I turned around and left that spot to avoid any issues. I'm thinking that maybe some younger bird dogs would be enticed to chase after wolves that show this kind of interest in them. In my opinion that would be bad and a dog may not come back alive, given their boldness and interest in my dog. It was fun seeing them, but we didn't just walk up and surprise them, they were coming to see the barking dog. Just curious? Maybe. Looking for an easy meal, maybe. I'm just putting this out there to inform bird hunters up there what I saw, so they can be aware if they have dogs. And no they were not coyotes.

      Made it out yesterday evening, SAW 4 deer. The same small buck and 3 does.  They sure seemed skittish with the wind.

      For the fact I am getting very few daytime pics of any deer, I am at lest seeing a few every sit.

      The crescent and south switch meet all the criteria, except for boat access.   And they even usually have some sort of craft beer on tap, like surly furious etc. 

      The only place near the lake that has upscale food that I am aware of is the casino.    We try to get to the wilderness grill for lunch a time or two.   And daughter and husband will sometimes go there on date night while they are up, although the pull to the east is less now that the quilt shop in tower shut down. 

    • I am going up this weekend with a few buddies and the plan is to fish hard...will post back and let ya know if we find anything.

      Was up for the week of Sept 10-17th.  First day spent on East and West Fox lake and we did well on bass, crappie and northerns.  Second day was very slow fishing.  Spent one day on Kego and did well on bass and norhterns.  Hit Mitchel twice and did well on sunfish and bass.  A few nice crappies in the mix as well.  Went to Little Boy for a day of walleye fishing, and it was very slow.  1 walleye and 1 smallmouth bass.  Great week of fishing on a few new lakes.  A very nice area to explore.

      The trees are turning color fast now! Seems to gain color by the hour now!

    • Driving a scenic route through a state forest is a great way to view fall color, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  

      Finland State Forest

      Finland State Forest

      “Routes through hilly or rugged areas dominated by deciduous trees tend to have the best mix of color,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “And the dark green needles of conifers accent the yellow, orange and red leaves of deciduous trees in mixed forest.”

      Here are a few state forests routes to consider:

      Late September

      • Finland State Forest heading northeast along County Road 7 from Finland.

      Early October

      • Bowstring and Blackduck state forests along state Highway 46 between Deer River and Northome.
      • Pillsbury State Forest along Beauty Lake Forest Road between County Road 77 and County Road 1.
      • St. Croix and Nemadji state forests loop. From Interstate 35, take exit #183 and head east on state Highway 48. Head north on County Road 24. Head east on County Road 24. At Markville, head north on County Road 31. Head west on Park Forest Road. At Kerrick, head south on state Highway 23 to Interstate 35 exit #195.

      Mid-October

      • Richard J. Dorer Memorial Hardwood State Forest has two good options. Along Zumbro Bottoms Road off of state Highway 60 southwest of Wabasha. Along state Highway 16 between Interstate 90 and state Highway 26.

      Visit www.mndnr.gov/stateforests for information about visiting a state forest and additional scenic routes. Entrance into a state forest is free. State forest campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis for $14 a night.

      Visit the Minnesota state parks and trails Fall Color Finder at www.mndnr.gov/fall_colors to find areas in Minnesota with peak fall color. The Fall Color Finder is updated every Thursday through the end of October.
