Walleye Activity on Mille Lacs 5/30

1 post in this topic

Hey there everybody well we had some up and down fishing this last weekend on mille Lacs but all ended well. Our launch at Hunter Winfield's went out both Sat. and Sun. night Sat. was a little tough with the insane winds out there but were able to keep a few. But on Sun. the bite was on the launch caught 16 keepers and 20 throw backs with alot of big fish, I also made it out that night and kept 9 with 8 throw backs. The fish can still be caught shallow but I recommend going deeper on the farther out reefs and gravel bars any where from 20-28ft with lindy's during the day and slips at night. Last night in 20ft on a guide trip we kept 7 with 7 throw backs using slips and leechs in two hours. Try otto's, graveyard, hennepin island, and sloppy's. If you need more info just email me at

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
