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 want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
