11 posts in this topic

Heading up to Mille Lacs this weekend for the full moon bite. Will be fishing the west side of the lake. Looks like I may have an open seat, as a couple of guys planning on coming with me had to back out this week. We were up for the October Full moon and had good luck.

you can email me at krmrappr@smunet.net if you are interested or call 712-260-4700, or just reply on this post...

No problem. Maybe another time. I would like to get up there and ice fish; havent done that for quite a few years. Have 3 daughters that play basketball(I coach one of their traveling teams), so the winter time is pretty busy...

Sorry but I can't make it up this weekend. Man am I sorry. Wife has cold and 71/2 months along. Bad combo. I'm going to try to hit Tonka Sunday for a few hours. All the time I can afford. Will call you Sunday for a report. I may try to get up next weekend and want to get a report. Make sure you have a charge on you bow mount and take your charger. I only made it up once through the entire fall bite...I'm so sorry. Time should free up after #2 comes in January right?? Good thing I fished as much as I did when I was single.

Chris,

No problem. Am charging my trolling batteries tonight. Looks like the weather will be pretty good. Good luck with the little one. As far as time, I dont know if you'll have any more free time in the future, it doesnt seem to work that way with the kids. I figure I'll have plenty of time to fish when the kids are grown and out on their own(hopefully)....

I could go up late saturday, or in the morning sunday! I am going to the Wild game saturday night, but would be willing to drive up afterwards if you are going to be out late. Otherwise I could drive up sunday whenever you are planning on going out.

Kurt,

that would be fine with me; I usually stay out pretty late unless the bite is slow. I will probably go out an hour or so before dark(4:00pm or so?) both nights. I will have my cell with me, so if you wanted to drive up after the game or on Sunday, I can be reached. You can catch me at home tonite at 712-262-5795 or on the cell at 712-260-4700. I am staying at Twin Pines. Let me know if you would like to go..

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      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
