wmn luv me walleye fearme

Have a cabin on Irene and was heading up there to do a little fishing this weekend. Was planning on mostly fishing on Irene for eyes but was wondering if it was worth it to pop over to miltona and wanted to see if anyone had any reports. Was planning on rigging during the day and going out at night trolling cranks. Havent had much luck once it gets dark on irene so was wondering if anyone having any luck with cranks after dark on miltona. Wife and kids not coming this weekend so will be fishing pretty much from thrusday night through sunday

thanks

Caught several huge crappies on Miltona this last weekend. Many over a pound.

I don't like to "fish and tell", but them big crappies are sure fun to catch!

It sure would be nice to run into those. I havn't been out on Miltona for a few weeks now, but I do know that things have been pretty quiet around there. Obviously, quiet can mean one of two things (Really Good or Really Bad).

Hey Knute,

Are you saying the walleyes are at 50’ of water or the water depth is 50’?

Either way, at what depth were the fish hanging at.

I have found fish in 35’ – 40’ of water with the fish around the 20’ – 25’ foot range??

Mainly on the west end…

Went out to Miltona twice this weekend in the deep water 50 to 80 feet in the deep holes. Caught alot of fishing went through alot of minnows. we caught probably around 70 fish a day but its a little said that most of them are 10 inchers or smaller. you would catch 15 fish and then get out that is 15 inches or so pulled out one big fishing 26 inches. just wondering where the big fish are or if their jsut not biting yet?

Drake, think outside the box right now, we are catching big fish extremely shallow. Leave the deep and easy fish alone. If you need some more info, remember this summer when No meant No. Stop in and see Shane and I we are working Friday nite at the main.

One thing that I Notice that should be a huge concern for fisherman though is pulling the fish out of 38 feet of water or deeper a new STUDY says that anything deeper than 38 feet of water 70% of those fish die I was just informed by A well known fisherman. So fisherman look out of where your pulling those fish out from the big fish aren't always deep. and watch that depthfinder when you get below 38 feet start looking to go back up that bank. I know that I wont be fishing in anything deeper than 25 feet. Unless you dont want to be fishing for those marble eyes in 5 to 10 Years.

      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.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!
