Mantrap this morning

3 posts in this topic

Guided this morning on the 'trap, it was pretty good saw 14 fish and had 4 of 5 hits with one hook up (lost shortly after that). It was fun and i think the clients had a blast, any way water looks good and the cabage is really strong. Jonah

I'm heading for the "trap" with my dad for 2 days of CPR fishing, well at least I hope we CPR. Any tips?? Where you using live bait?? I've heard a "tale of the trap" Find the bluegill and you'll find the big guys! Any truth to that. Might you have any openings for a little guiding for some nebbies to the trap, but semi-trained muskie guys. you can PM if you have any time tues or wed.msmurphy@cableone.net

My buddy and I were out there this weekend casting spinner baits and rapalas and spinnerbaits for what ever species we caught a good number of largies and a lot of good northerns. We also had three follows by some real nice like ski's one was probably over 45in. Everyone else we saw on the lakes were all throwing huge artificial lures. Ive only fished trap twice so that really all i know about the lake. Our first trip fishing for largies and pike before muskie opener my buddies landed these two guys on 1/4 jig heads one on a grub other a power worm. Good luck with your trip.

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
