Wow, was Mille Lacs bad this past weekend!!

Recommended Posts

Hey all, my buddy and I hit Mille Lacs this past weekend... The reports are true - fishing is bad right now out there. We tried everything under the sun this past weekend and managed only one 22 incher in about 15 hours total of fishing... Yikes! Wasn't like the opener where caught 50 eyes averaging about 23 inches a piece. We knew before we went that it would be bad, but since we both are so busy in October, we couldn't have rescheduled... Oh well, that's how it goes sometimes! A bad couple days of fishing is always better than a good couple days of work!!

PS - the highlight of our weekend had to be staying in the Garrison Inn and Suites where some drunk guy came busting in at about 2 AM to ask my buddy if he had waffles to eat... Some bachelor party blew through there on Saturday night and I was about to tackle some of those dudes... Funny though about the waffle sitch...

I would recommend changing your tactics because the fish are very hungry right now. smirk.gif

It all depends on your approach. Bite was actually pretty good this weekend for a lot of guys who were pulling cranks shallow.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      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.
