Where was everybody?

Fished on Monday the 6th on the NW side. We only saw one other boat all morning. I will admit, the bite was slow. I guess the tight slot is keeping people away. Did catch a few eyes on cranks/planer boards over the flats.

Eye fishing must be REAL SLOW frown.gif there's not as many reports as usual. I'll be out Fri-Sun this week & Thur-Sun next week. I sure hope I can find something biting with 7 days on the water. After 5:00 PM 8-9 I wont have computer access for a couple of weeks.

If anybody has any info to share I'll take it!!

I'll report back after 8-19.

I was out on the flats on Saturday evening and could not see a boat anywhere, who would have thought that was possible?

Just shows how slow the walleyes are, and how changing the slot really shut people off. I just want to know what lakes are taking on all the pressure that Mille Lacs was getting, since the slot changed to 14-16". I don't know many guys who will drive there catch a limit with a 2 inch size range, and I live 30 minutes away. A guy should be fishing northerns there, this time of year, gotta chance at a nice one!

I think that the way the bite has been recently even w/o the slot change the #'s of people fishing would be way down anyway.

Walleye fishing on Mille Lacs basically ended on July 9th. Regardless of all the people that said keeping fish was not important to them.

Cutting the slot at the same time the bite drops off was ludicrous.

Remarks made by locals towards visitors did not help any either.

10,000- 12,000 other lakes to go to.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
