Road Down to Four Wheelers, Snowmobiles and WilCrafts Only

1 post in this topic

Although I am in Stevens Point, Wisconsin right now I am keeping my finger on the pulse of what is going on on Mille Lacs. Made some phone calls this morning and recieved some phone calls too.

The report is that the Perch are getting more active in 26ft to 30ft of water, in that gravel/mud/sand areas. Some dandy's have been caught with some smaller ones too. It seems that most of the lake is doing well in these waters.

They should start moving into the shallower water here any day.

Talked to three fisherman via e-mail that shared their day out on the Doe Island Reef. No one caught their limit of perch but everyone said that they caught fish and there was plenty of action throwing back the smaller fish.

The road access might be done for the year to vehicles. The access is now only open to four wheelers and snowmobiles and of course the WilCrafts. Please do not drive your vehicle out as you may not get back to shore without getting really wet! Plenty of ice out there its just the shore line that is getting bad.

The roads are wet but not bad at all. There is five miles of roads from the bay, throughout the whole Doe Island Reef from that 30ft of water to 8ft of water in front of Cedar Creek.

PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE OFF THE ROADS AS I RECEIVED ANOTHER REPORT OF ANOTHER TRUCK THAT HIT AN OPEN WHOLE ON THE NORTH END AND DROPPED THE FRONT AXEL IN.

WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE PUTTING ANY LAKE TRUCKS ON THE ICE ANYMORE THIS SEASON!!! SO PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND JUST USE THE ROADS!

Good Luck and Fish On!!!

      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.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?

      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!
