Was probably close to 30 inches on main lake, 18 or so in cove bay. But it was deteriorating really fast. I could only imagine what today’s temps did, especially along the pressure ridges.

Bite was good again this morning. Including another keeper. Set lines and jigging about 50/50 on fish. If the fish was there it was eating. 🎣🎣🎣 Tight Lines everyone!

I was on perfect rocky structure last Weds. in 19-27'. Had it all to myself. Only 1 Ice Castle within 200 yards. Fishing was decent. Caught 8 respectable walleyes, all on Slab Raps. All while hole-hop

My parent's friend caught this 2 days ago.  Measured 54 inches and estimated weight over 50 pounds.  They're in the shallows chasing the cisco spawn.

My parents tried Mille Lacs on opener for almost 6 hours and this is what their boat looked like at 2:30pm.  They did not have a single bite.  I told them not to go and they still went.

We went out on the NE side after the snow and the 3 of us got one lindy rigging and than we anchored up on the rocks and caught 9 more.  All of them were 16-18 inches.  It was definitely a cold and wet opener.

If you can't go out for a few hours and catch some walleyes right now on Mille Lacs...it may be time to try another activity.  They're biting shallow, deep, live bait, artificial, daytime, evening.  Heck even the bass guys are catching them by accident.  I think they're starving again.  They all look pretty unhealthy.  Granted, some of that has to do with being post spawn but they all look deathly and skinny right now.  Here is a 30 incher my Mother caught lindy rigging the mud flats on Sunday afternoon.

My brother was up there on Sunday with the Nephew and had a 70 fish day. He said most were 18 to 21 inches with a few 22 23's and 24's mixed in. Think they also got a few 25 and 26ers. Leech's lindy rigging off Agate reef and Half moon deep side 21 ft plus.

Agreed, the eyes didn’t look healthy and didn’t have much spunk, even for walleyes.  We caught some off the dock fishing leeches under floats in about 8-9 fow.

 

Lots of boats out!  I don’t visit Mille Lacs much so I don’t know if the memorial crowd was more than usual but I have a feeling it wasn’t.  Except for the rain showers that moved through we could count anywhere from 45 -100 boats from the dock at any given time.

I don't doubt that.  Bass anglers are catching way more walleyes than bass right now too.  The bass fishing has gotten to be difficult.  There's way too much pressure on those fish.

I was out of the NE side again and was surprised with the amount of boats out fishing this last weekend.  I agree, the fish are biting and look a little skinny and could be post spawn.  This weekend was the first time that we caught fish out of that 17-20 inch range.  We caught a bunch of 12-14 inch which is good to see.

I was bass fishing on Saturday out of Liberty Beach.  The entire access was already full at 7:10am when I got there and people were parking on the road.  Bass fishing was tough.  I caught four of them in about 5 hours but they were all quality fish between 17-18.5 inches.  My parents have been walleye fishing on the mud flats and they caught 71 walleyes on Sunday in about 7.5 hours using a lindy rig and leech in 4 foot waves.  The walleyes are starving and willing to bite just about anything you want to drag around out there.

thinking about getting my son out on Friday, hoping to fish the south west side after the wind lies down. I haven't fished Mille Lacs in my adult years, any suggestions on where to launch?  Willing to pay the resort/launch fee if needed.

There's really not any great accesses on the SW side, cove has a decent public launch but that's on the south end but fairly far west and then Eddys has a decent ramp and that's about a third the way up on the west side. Few other resorts south of Eddys but definitely launching on a narrow road

Cove Bay public access is pretty good but depending on how far you want to go, it could be a bit of a haul in a boat (also depends on what kind of boat you have I guess).  I've made the run from cove to Vineland Bay/Indian Point a couple times with my 75 hp and it does take a while.  Otherwise the next access is Shah Bush Kung which is just north of the casino.  Or you can pay at Eddy's like Kettle stated.

Well if you're out there during the day time and the sun is out I would head to the basin and troll with lead core and crank baits.  If you can fish in the evening when the sun is going down then you could move shallower with lighted bobbers and live bait.  My parents were out there a couple times in late August and it was pretty awful.  They fished for about 7 hours each time and boated a total of 6 walleyes (2 one time, 4 the next).  They aren't professionals by any means but they are tournament anglers so they know what they're doing.  I have not heard anything since Labor Day but perhaps it has improved since then with some cooler water temps.  I guess there is a big hatch of perch and all that forage is making the fish less willing to bite than they were in the spring.

Hennepin has a very nice reef/spine that heads north. It gets deep on the east of it and a huge rocky flat on the west.

 

The reef turns northwest at one point. That's a good spot.

As of today ice conditions on north end were in great shape! However, even though it wasn’t that warm today, was still getting soft. Shoreline might not even make it through the weekend.

 

With that being said, I walked ALOT today! I probably made it just shy of halfway to 8 mile reef. As I type, my feet are feeling the effects 😖 only caught 3 tullibee, probably lost about 10. Marked lots of fish in every hole I drilled.

 

Going back tomorrow. Hopefully this time they’ll be more hungry!

Another ice season in the books! Surprisingly, the wealthwood public access was still in really good shape as I left. But yeah, this will be the last weekend for safe access to the lake for sure. Today may have been one of my best ice outings ever, weather wise! Caught 8 tullibee, lost a couple others. Hopefully next year will be a normal winter, so some of the resorts can keep their roads open longer...would make getting to my new found hotspots much easier! It is pretty cool being on a 133,000 acre lake, and not having anyone around for miles and miles though 😁

Fished the pond for eyes today, water temp 66-70. Didn't pick up anything on the flats. The edges of the reefs held fish, lot's of nice 18-21 inch fish, nothing bigger or smaller

How long are they going to play with this lake before they let us Fish!  How many years has been now?  I think Red Lake recovered sooner then this! 😕

What the heck are you talking about Leech?  You can fish all you want right now, just not at night time unless its for muskies.

 

I have been out there a couple times, once for smallmouth and once for walleyes.  The walleyes are much easier to catch at this point.  Just drag around some live bait when you mark fish or set up on a rock pile in the evening with a bobber and you'll get bit.  The lake is down about 18 inches and the water is very clear so back off on when targeting some of these fish.  They get spooked very easily.

Really, dang I must have missed the DNR update. So how many Walleyes can we keep and eat now 4-5? 👍👍

Cuz driving a 100 miles to just poke holes in fishes mouths and releasing them in this hot weather. Is not what I call back to normal. 😉

      On the south end...  Some good walleye fishing this week.  As many summer weeks, it was helpful to be versatile.  On the big lake, sometimes you have to play the wind, meaning, you have to be flexible where you fish.  
      The fish were there and some great catches this week.  Most fishing in 25-33 feet.  Some are still jigging.  Frozen shiners and leeches were both good this week.  With water temps in the mid to upper 60's, leeches and crawlers will heat up.  
      Spinners (otherwise called harnesses) with minnows, leeches or crawlers were all effective this week.  It is good to mix up colors and bait until you find the right mix.  Gold, glow, pink, orange, chartreuse or a combo of them are good colors in stained water. 
      More and more anglers trolling crankbaits with success.  Some have been trolling cranks since the opener but it seems most anglers wait till the water warms.  A great method to cover water and find cooperative fish.  
      On the Rainy River...   Some good summer fishing reports from the river.  Walleyes being caught jigging, pulling spinners and trolling crankbaits.  Current breaks and holes holding most fish.  
      Smallmouth bass in rocky areas, current breaks, bridge embankments and weed edges.  Lots of bass in the river.  Crankbaits, spinnerbaits and tube jigs are good lures to start with.  
      Pike are adjacent to weedlines, in slack water areas and in bays.  Working shorelines whether trolling or casting will normally produce nice fish.
      Sturgeon anglers, mark your calendars, sturgeon season opens again July 1st.  
      Up at the NW Angle...  Walleye fishing continues to be strong up at the Angle.  Fish coming from literally 5-33' of water.  Not every walleye is keying on the same food sources.  With structure, rocks, and mud, lots of variety at the Angle.  Jigging, spinners and cranks all producing. 
      Muskie season opens Saturday, June 19th.  Lots of nice fish already caught unintentionally as these predators like to eat.  Muskie anglers were forced to fish MN waters last year with the border closure were happily surprised with the size and quantity of fish on the MN side.  This year should be good.
      Pike hanging out in weedy bays.  Smallmouth relating to rocky points and reefs.
      With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.  
      1.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  2.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  3.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      Hey guys, going up to nine mile lake camping and noticed that Echo lake next door has Atlantic Salmon. Any tips on catching one? Is it even possible this time of year? Any help would make me and the little one super happy. 
      Thanks,

      Just got back from our annual Grand Marais trip! I don’t know, maybe I’m just getting old and cranky, but over the last several times I’ve been up there, I’ve been liking the town less and less. Getting too artsy, hippy, liberal for me 🤷🏻‍♂️ Also sad to see the northshore getting absolutely “loved to death”! Has totally lost it’s up north feel.
       
      Anyway, enough ranting. Fishing was terrible! Numbers and quality were way down. Aside from 2 smallies that barely scratched 17 inches (both were skinny), not even any medium bass were caught. Only caught a few small pike, and 1 walleye. As always, kids had fun catching sunnies from the dock at hungry jack lodge. By the way, we ate at their restaurant for the first time…AMAZING! Also fell in love with castle danger cream ale. Had fun on greenwood lake watching bass jump out of the water and catching dragonflies. There must have been a hatch going on, because they were everywhere! And every bass had fat little belly’s. The rainbow trout on kimball lake has fat belly’s too. They were gorging on mosquito larvae. Casting from shore on superior was actually productive…on the way up I caught a long nose sucker on a daredevil spoon. In front of our motel, I finally caught my first lake trout from superior! Anyway, overall it was still a fun trip. Did some hiking, mini golf, alpine slide. Didn’t see any moose, but we did see a bear and a wolf. 
       
      As always, the people at Hungry Jack Lodge were great! I think we’re going to start staying there from now on.

      On the south end...  Walleyes were active this week.  Some warm weather hit the north country and the fish responded nicely.  Jigging with a live fathead minnow or frozen shiner vertically jigged or drifting spinners with a minnow or crawler in 15-29 feet of water has been the ticket for most walleye anglers.  
      Snelled spinners or harnesses work well all summer into the fall and also is a really good way to cover water.  They are also versatile as they can be fished shallow to deep.  1.0 - 1.25 mph is a good speed, as long as the spinner is spinning.
      Colors to start out with... hammered gold by itself or with another color, pink, glow red, orange and chartreuse.  All good colors in the stained waters.
      Trolling crankbaits is gaining steam with very good results.  A great way to cover water.  Get the lure where walleyes are living and hang on!
      On the Rainy River...   Some good walleye fishing on the river.  Most anglers fishing the river are locals or folks with smaller boats or on windy days.  Although many walleyes head back to the lake after the spawn, not all do!   There is 42 miles of navigable Rainy River from the mouth at Wheeler's Point to Birchdale which is 26 miles east of Baudette.
      Most anglers jigging with a minnow with spinners and crankbaits starting to perform well.  
      Multispecies in the river.  Smallmouth bass in rocky or slack water areas.  Pike in bays.  Sturgeon season opens again July 1st.  
      Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing continues around the Angle.  Fish coming from 14-25 feet of water.  A lot of fish being caught in the mud, but plenty around structure as well.
      Jigging with a minnow and drifting with spinners the go to methods.  Not as many anglers pulling crankbaits but they are working.  Much like the south end, Gold or gold mixed with another color has been effective this week.
      With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.  
      1.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  2.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  3.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      Finally got out Thursday morning to wet a line. Pretty slow. Got 1 bass, 1 northern and a big catfish.  First time getting a cat there. Pulled like crazy and for some reason my dragged decided not to work properly. Luckily I didn’t break the line.  Lots of weeds floating at access. Had to do a lot of cleaning when I loaded up. Big thank you to the young lady checking for AIS. She helped get the weeds off, then I power washed it at home.  Good luck everyone.

      On the south end...  Some excellent walleye fishing this week.  Guides did a nice job of being versatile a couple of days when the wind really blew.  Jigging with a live fathead minnow or frozen shiner vertically jigged in 14-29 feet of water has been the ticket for most walleye anglers.  
      Never discount trolling.  Some good reports of trolling crankbaits with very good results.  A great way to cover water where walleyes are living.  Mix up cranks with different shapes, sizes, wobbles and colors until you get dialed in.  Good to have everyone in the boat with a different lure to start out.
      Some popular crankbait colors to start out with...  pink UV Firetiger, Firetiger, chrome / blue, gold / orange.
      More big pike surprised unsuspecting walleye anglers this week.  When you get hooked up, hang on!
      On the Rainy River...   Some nice walleyes are being caught up and down the river in 8-15 feet of water.  A nice alternative to the lake for smaller boats and big blow days.
      Most anglers jigging with a minnow.  Spinners with crawlers and crankbaits are also a good option to cover water.  The river offers many species of fish in a setting second to none. 
      Sturgeon season opens again July 1st.  Summer sturgeon fishing doesn't get attention due to walleyes but it is productive and fun.
      Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing continues around the Angle.  Fish coming from 13-20 feet of water.  Anchored around neck down areas with a bit of current, points and around shoreline structure producing nice fish.
      Most anglers jigging with a minnow.  Gold / chartreuse is a good color this week.  Gold, glow colors and brighter colors in the stained waters are a solid choice.

      I only had a very short amount of time to fish this morning, so I went to the Apple River. Even though it’s pretty close, I never go here for the simple fact, the fishing is no good! I’m just amazed at the lack of fish holding structure this particular stretch has (Star Prairie). There’s no riffles, pools, boulders, undercut banks, nothing! It’s just fast water! I did catch 1 little rainbow, and lost 2 others. So it was nice to see at least a little sign of life in Apple.

      On the south end...  A great week of walleye fishing.  Jigging with a frozen shiner vertically jigged in 14-25 feet of water has been the ticket for most walleye anglers.  
      Some anglers locating fish shallow, especially in current areas or on a wind blown shoreline.  There are also good numbers of fish being caught anchored up in deeper water.  Different schools of walleyes are often tuned in to different bait, hence, not all walleyes are doing the same thing.  It is good to trust your electronics, try an area and if no luck, move on.  
      Jig colors, gold, orange, glow, pink, chartreuse or a mix of these colors on the same jig.
      Some good reports of trolling crankbaits where walleyes are roaming.  Crankbaits allow you to cover water and put your lure in front of a lot of walleyes.  Trolling shorelines, even if nobody else is, can produce good results.
      As is the case in a strong pike fishery, some big pike being caught but unsuspecting walleye anglers.  Many pike over 40 inches boated this week.
      On the Rainy River...   There is always a resident population of walleyes that live in the river even after the annual spawning run is over.  Some nice walleyes are being caught up and down the river.  
      Most are still jigging with a minnow.  Try current breaks or holes in the stretch of river you are fishing.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River from the mouth to Birchdale 30 miles east of Baudette.  The river offers many species of fish in a setting second to none. 
      Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing this past week around the Angle.  Fish coming from 5 - 25 feet of water.  A big variance but fish the goto spots.  Neck down areas with a bit of current, points and deep edges of bays producing nice fish.
      Most anglers jigging with a minnow.  Gold and brighter colors in the stained waters have worked well.
      With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.

      I think 3500 lbs is too much.  Trailer your boat and head to a large open parking lot to practice accelerating, coming to a complete stop, making turns, and backing up. So if you are perfect in it then you should trailer it yourself otherwise there are some hauling company for boat. The more you practice handling your vehicle with your boat in tow, the more comfortable you will feel on the open road.

Sturgeon anglers, mark your calendars, sturgeon season opens again July 1st.   Up at the NW Angle...  Walleye fishing continues to be strong up at the Angle.  Fish coming from literally 5-33' of water.  Not every walleye is keying on the same food sources.  With structure, rocks, and mud, lots of variety at the Angle.  Jigging, spinners and cranks all producing.  Muskie season opens Saturday, June 19th.  Lots of nice fish already caught unintentionally as these predators like to eat.  Muskie anglers were forced to fish MN waters last year with the border closure were happily surprised with the size and quantity of fish on the MN side.  This year should be good. Pike hanging out in weedy bays.  Smallmouth relating to rocky points and reefs. With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.   1.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  2.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  3.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      Does anyone have someone to recommend for mowing paths/lawn on an island (Frazer\Smarts Bay)?   I only have a DR Brush Mower system I am using right now (been through 2 old hand me down mowers (I'd love to get rid off, one is a John Deere).   Thanks for any insight   Andy
