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

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
