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.

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
