Miltona for opener

3 posts in this topic

Wondering how deep to fish for walleyes on opener. Never fished Miltona this early in the year. Any ideas would be greatly appreaciated! Good luck to everyone. Thanks in advance.

Not going to be Miltona but a neighboring/similar lake (Ida) this weekend. First thing that comes to my mind is shallow at night. Pull plugs, cast plugs/jigs or slip bobber right up in 10' and less. Other then that all I can say is to try to key in off of the first break of a sand/rubble flat. If there is some new/old weeds around they can attract bait and hence walleyes. Jig and fathead/shiner or live bait rig with shiner or maybe leeches. For back up on opener, I'd have the crappie rods rigged and ready to search them out in the shallows.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
