6/2/21 Catching lots of walleyes and bonus smallies on Mille Lacs. On shallow to mid-depth rocks the first few weeks, now deep gravel or mud when it is calm/clear and mid-depth rocks when it is windy and cloudy. Caught several of the elusive slot fish during the open period, kept and ate a few. Catch and release now and remember closed walleye fishing and no live bait July 1-15. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
6/16/21 Catching bass, pike, sunfish, and crappies on west Metro area lakes. Starting to see a few muskies as well. Water temps in the low to upper 70s depending on the lake. Still catching fish in shallow to mid-depth depending on the lake. Good luck and I will see you out there somewhere.
Congrats! Bummer that the dead fish was the difference especially if it was healthy and swimming when you entered the bay! What weight did you have pre deductions and what was your fish/weight breakdown? Curious what people were catching... Did you fish the same spots on tourney day as you did in prefishing? and if you don't mind sharing did you fish crosslake or make it out to whitefish? Sorry for the questions but I always am interested on the where, how, and how many in this tourney but never stick around for the long drawn out awards handout...
Got back yesterday. Found some really nice bass and a lot of them, both large and small mouth in the 15"-17" range. Found a couple of walleye, 14" and 15". Had a great time as usual and the weather was calm for much of the time we were there. Had most success with slip bobber and leeches/crawlers.
