Fishing Report 2/14/07

6 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

Still some really big fish are being caught throughout the lake. Although a few people are getting some limits, there seems to be not a lot of numbers, but some really nice size trophy's being caught, which has been exciting!. Walleyes are being caught in all depths. In the shallow rocks, deep mud and on top of the mud or gravel on shiners, fatheads, rainbows and even waxies or larva on a jiggin spoon has worked best! Set lines, and Jingle(rattle) reels along with jiggin has been the method that has been working.

Perch have still been on one day, and off the next. Not much consistancy with the Jumbos! I did get one report of a couple of fisherman who did well on perch in 32ft of water. A nice pail of Jumbo's! Fisherman and Fisherwomen are seeing a lot of Jumbo perch on the camara, but they seem pretty content on the lakes surplus of forage for food. Most of the perch caught are on minnow heads, larva and worms. Staying mobile will increase your chances finding active perch. Some perch caught have been up to 14 inches!!! Can you say; JUMBO!!!

There is a Mille Lacs Lake open tourney the weekend of the Feb 17th. Nitti's Hunters Point is having a Eel Pout and Perch Contest. Cash prizes along with door prizes. Again, this is a tourney open to the whole lake starting at 7am till 2pm sharp! All fish must be weighed at Hunters Point and must be alive! Call Hunters Point Resort and ask for George Nitti and tell'em "The Cranker" sent you! Buttons are only $10.00 to enter.

The Perch Extravaganza sponsored by Johnson's Portside Bait, is on the 24th of February at Nitti's Hunters Point this year! If your coming up for this fishing event or just coming up to try your last chance this year to catch a wall hanger walleye and need a place to stay on Mille Lacs,contact your favorite resort and make your reservations today before they are all taken!

I cannot believe that the year is coming to a close. Only two weekends left! frown.gif

Happy Valentines Day!

Fish On!!!

Cranker,

Is the perch extravaganza a lake wide contest or is the fishing area restricted?

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
