I haven't checked nor have I heard anything on the tullibees. However, I can tell you that the last 2 to 3 years have been very non-productive. If I get up there any time soon I will post.

The last time I was up I smacked the tulibees. I caught around a dozen 16-18"ers. Problem is, I was fishing for crappie. I only got two of those. The tulibee were suspended and over the deepest water in our bay. I have heard they are good smoked so I am hoping to sample some from our neighbors up north to see if it is something worth buying a smoker for. They were fun to catch so if they are tasty to boot....all the better. laugh.gif

How about a report from an absolute rookie out fishing for his first tullibees....

Dad and I went out on Leech on Saturday, neither one of us had angled for them before. Luckily we run into some fellows that gave us some good pointers.

We marked some fish, actually caught 9 total. From what I understand, that is pretty slow but we had fun and will be back again next year. Spent most of the day out there, got a good burn on the face and the bite came and went all day long.

Put the fish in the smoker on Sunday and we are good to go for a little bit with fresh smoked Tullibees.

The ice where we were at was really getting rotten, actually dropped the wheeler in not too far off shore. Had to winch it out with the other wheeler, I wouldn't try that again, even foot traffic was getting shakey.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I don't personally own a smmity sled but I've herd many great things about them.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
