where to take the kids.

2 posts in this topic

hey guys im going up to mille lacs with my wife, kid, parents sister and niece in a week and half. gonna bring my boat, but it sounds like they want to rent a pontoon for sunday afternoon. we want to try to let the kids into some ok fish but at the same time I want to try some nice ones too. were going to izatys so i guess the question is where is a good panfish spot on the southern end that may hold some smallies or something else nice for the elders. i was thinking in wahkon bay or just out of cove. any advice would be nice. i really wanna get some pannies on for my daughter and let her reel them in. she is almost 3 and she always talks about fishing with me.

I'm not as familiar with the panfish.. but you should do fine on the rock bars in Cove bay as long as we dont get a real tough north wind. Check the pencil reeds for the panfish and see if they are up in them.. might be some smallies in there as well.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
