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

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
