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?

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?

      Oohhh, I'll tell you what folks, it is just a beautiful day to be in the northland!!!   Heard that one a time or two.   Classic Country Sunday, the opening 15 minutes were the best.
