welcome to FishingMinnesota TS... great to have you on the site!

Take 35 North and exit on HWY 8.. take that to Olinda Trail(should be a DQ on the right hand side) take a right, go down a little over a mile I think to 295th St. Take a left.. boat landing is about 2 blocks down on your left...

as for where the walleye are? I would drift lindy rigs with a leech around in 10-30 feet of water...I havn't been out there yet, but the landing was pretty vacant on sunday so I assume the bite was not all that good saturday... few were back.

I was there on the opener and got one walleye about 8 inches long. I saw one other boat catch 2 bluegills, other than that no one was catching fish that I saw. I'm sure with more stable weather the fishing will improve.

BTW Man the curly-leaf pondweed was BAD!!! I haven't been on the lake early in the year for quite a while and boy it has changed. No wonder last summer it was pea green with no vegetation.

I was with a group of 3 boats and we boated 2 walleyes, one was 14 the other just a hair over 16, my son tried to horse one in before getting the net and it got off a couple inches above the water. I tried to tell him to wait a second, but, you know us, instant gratification. shocked.gif

I want opinions. On opener, we had been catching sunnies. most were dinks, but, we started catching larger ones... average fish would have been just smaller than 8 inches, we kept 75 sunnies in this size range. I try to do the best I can at selective harvest, now before anyone jumps down my throat, there was 6 guys and we all wanted a meal, sunnies just ended up being on the menu. We were nowhere near our limit. There were none going over 9 inches and there may have been two in the mix at 9. Are these the better sizes to keep? Or what would be a better option?

It was typical metro area lake pannies.. it takes 3 to make one.

Hey Trout, just pick me up, I will lead you in the right direction. I am just accross the street in Blaine. I fish the area often enough, could maybe even put you on fish.

There are going to be a lot of opinions on that one... I personally think you were fine keeping what you did as long as none of them went to waste. You didn't keep any monsters, and the lake has a pretty healthy population of gills. I thnk your fine.

I will not waste a fish intentionally (I have had a freezer crap out on me once unfortunately fish was not the only thing lost). the other guys feel the same way.

Great day of fishing for the pannies. I think it is fine to keep that amount when you are not by yourself like you sated and you are going to be eating them. I bet they were tasty. good eatin!

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early. 
    • eyeguy 54
      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....
