Hot Bite on Mille Lacs 6/5

3 posts in this topic

Well there is more good news for anybody coming to Mille Lacs this weekend, we're still having great luck for good numbers... slot fish and throwbacks.

The deep water around Hennepin Island, Graveyard, Bannna, Otto's, The Gravel Bar, and most Flats are great areas to fish, anywhere from 20-29ft of water with leeches on lindy's and spinners during the day and slip bobbers at night. The shallows are still a good option in the evening on slips around Spider Island, Izaty's reef, Hawkbill, Three Mile Reef, and Upper and Lower Twin Islands in 8-16ft, it's been best to fish these spots if there is a nice chop out there.

I guided both Saturday and Sunday night, on Sat. there were three guys in the boat we went from 6-10pm fished 27ft with slips on mud in front of Izaty's and brought back a limit... and they caught 10 more big throw backs, with a few small ones. On Sunday, we only got out for an hour and a half but did real well with 5 slot fish and 10 throw backs.

The fish are biting, so try and make it out here this weekend.

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.

      Are the catfish still biting decent out there? Usually make it up earlier in the year have not made it up yet this year but I'm looking to come up one of the next couple evenings.
