Fishing Mille Lacs

Recommended Posts

notenoughfishing

I'm new here so I hope it is not considered inappropriate to ask members where and how to fish. I am going to Mille Lacs on Thursday for the first time in two years. Probably will put the boat in at the south end (Cove Bay), but could go anywhere. Will fish from about 4:00 PM until whenever. I have a GPS and have already input the coordinates for many of the spots marked on ProMap Series LakeMaster map of Mille Lacs. That map shows coordinates for a lot of the flats in the northwest quadrant of the lake, plus many reefs in other parts of the lake. Can anyone give me some advice on how deep the walleyes are likely to be? Are they out on the mud flats yet? On gravel? What techniques are likely to work best this time of year, and should we change techniques as we get near and after sunset? Any advice on location and technique would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Not enough

There's plenty of old posts that cover all your questions but I'll give you my two cents worth. The fish are out on the flats, we fished on Monday and caught fish anywhere from 23-31". we drifted the flats with 10" snells with red hook and white beeds and Leaches we also caugth fish with a spinner and Crawler. I would find a flat and depending on the wind find the edge and troll or drift. if you don't catch any fish or mark fish move to the next flat. It really isn't that hard to catch fish and most will be nice fish.

Good Luck

not enough we fished the mud flats on Sunday caught fish on top of the flats, on the slopes and out in the deep. They just seemed to be scattered all around the flats. We fished with spinners 8-10' crawlers and leeches. Hammered Copper was the best.

Just spend a while and look at some of these posts. Head out to the mud for sure!!!! Try the tops and the edges. If there are a few in the boat , rig up differently. Last Fri they preferred chart hooks and a chart. bead, over red hook . Leeches, different color beads, and spinner colors. Crawlers also. Just make sure you use snells anywhere from 7-11 ft.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
